Love is patient, love is kind. 1 Corinthians 13:4a

Dear Parents,

It is always important to think about love. First Corinthians 13 is a wonderful definition of love. It is important to apply this definition at home to those we love the most.

The Happy Hearts Fun Run is our latest fundraiser. It will be on Saturday, Feb. 24 from 8:00-noon at the Makae'o Walking Path at the Old Airport park. It is now in full swing. Each student that wants to run needs to bring in at least $20. This includes a Fun Run t-shirt. Those students that bring in $500 will go to lunch with Mrs. Begley. It is always a fun time! Parent help is needed. If you can help, please call Debbie at 329-3093. Thanks.

We now have Candy-grams for sale in the school office. Students can purchase candies for their friends which will be delivered on Valentine's Day. Parents, you are welcome to come secretly purchase for your child, too. So fun! (I told the children to day that this is not a candy store where you buy and eat.)

Next week, Monday-Friday, Feb. 12-16, is MLCA School Spirit Week. Starting Monday, each day has a theme to wear. Monday is Crazy Hair and/or Crazy Clothes, Tuesday is Cultural Day, Wednesday is Red and White/or Formal Day for Valentine's Day, Thursday is Throwback Thursday or Career Day, and Friday is Pajama, Sports, or MLCA Clothes Day. Students may officially color their hair wild colors during School Spirit Week. This week is always so much fun!! Junior High will have their School Spirit Week next week also. However, their themes are different from Elementary's themes. FYI.

There will be NO school on Monday, Feb. 19 for President's Day and also on Tuesday, Feb. 20 which is a teacher in-service day. School will resume on Wednesday, Feb. 21.

We are still having lots of sick children in each grade. Please keep your child home until they are all the way better. Thanks.

Please do not stop and drop off your child in front of grades 3, 2, 1, and K. You can park and walk them to class or drive to the north side of the building and drop them off there. This holds up the traffic flow and I do hear from parents about those that stop.

I would also like to remind you to hold your child's hand while walking them to and from their car. I do not want any little ones (or big ones) getting hit by cars. It can happen so quickly. Please tell grandparents who pick up and drop off about this, too. Thanks.

May the Lord bless and keep each of us this week.
