BOX TOPS – Did you know there is a Box Tops App for your phone? I downloaded the app and it only took me a minute to scan my store receipt and see how much money I raised for our school. Take a minute today to download the app to your smart phone. In the meantime, there are still some Box Tops floating around out there. Please clip those and bring them in a baggie with your student’s name and class written on it. The student with the highest amount of Box Tops turned in will receive a prize from Mrs. Seevers. The class with the highest amount of Box Tops turned in will receive a dress down day.
PARENT/TEACHER CONFERENCES – Conferences are being held in one week on Tuesday, November 5th. If you haven’t signed up yet or forget your time slot please contact the office. Students will come to school on Monday, no school on Tuesday, and return to school on Wednesday.
SCHOOL CALENDAR – All events, field trips and important information are posted on the school calendar on the Tree of Life website. There are three campuses so make sure to look for events that are marked “DUB” so you know it pertains to our location.

Too many parents focus on the tasks, getting the job done, with little time spent on how they’re getting those things accomplished. Focusing on the process opens up new avenues of teaching with your child. In Philippians 2:3-4, Paul offers guidance to the church that’s excellent advice for the family as well. He says, ” Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vein conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interest, but also to the interest of others.” Later in that chapter Paul continues, “Do everything without complaining or arguing” (v.14).
God is concerned with the process as well. When a child is tempted to hurt others because of the issues, moving to the process by valuing the people involved may be just the parenting solution needed. The Christian Parenting Handbook by Dr. Scott Turansky.
