Dublin News: 8/19

We are thanking God for a great first day of school!  Here are some helpful hints for a successful school year.

PICTURE DAY All School Picture Day is this Wednesday, August 21st. Students may dress up or wear their school uniforms to school. Please be on time to school as pictures start promptly at 9:15 a.m.

SPIRIT WEAR AND GYM DAYS Every Wednesday is a Tree of Life spirit wear day. Students may wear any Tree of Life shirt to school with regular uniform bottoms. (Except this Wednesday because it’s Picture Day!) Don’t forget P.E. is now every Friday. Students should wear their gym shorts and gray P.E. shirt every Friday to school.

GYM CLASS STARTS FRIDAY! Students in kindergarten through 5th grade should wear their gym uniform for class.  Appropriate shirts are either the gray short sleeved gym shirt or the black and white new student tee. 

PERMISSION FORMS ALL permission forms given at Parent/Teacher Night should be turned in by now.  If you haven’t sent those in with your student, make sure you do that today.

STUDENT ABSENCES Please email or call the school office by 9:30 a.m. each morning that your child will be absent from school.  A message can be left on voicemail.  (614-792-2671.

BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION We will be collecting Box Tops again this year.  The way of collecting has changed from previous years. Please look at the flier in your student’s Monday folder for more information.

PIZZA FRIDAYS Pizza starts this Friday! If you have not pre-paid for pizza and your student wants to participate, pizza is $1.25 a slice.  You will receive an order form in the Monday take-home folder.  Please return the form and money in a Ziploc bag by Thursday morning at 9:30am.  If you choose not to participate in Pizza Fridays then please remember to pack your student’s lunch.

You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.  
Deuturonomy 6:5-7

As parents, we have an incredible opportunity to teach and model for our children what it looks like to live in the Holy Spirit. We can live our Spirit filled lives out loud for our children to see. As you seek God’s will, as you listen to the Spirit, as you see Him at work in and around your lives and children’ lives, be sure to point Him out. They will learn to look for Him and listen to Him and to celebrate Him as they see you do the same. Todd R.Marrah, Ph.D TOL Superintendent
