I hope everybody has had a good 4th of July weekend. This past week we had a lot of fun with decorating of shirts and lots of fireworks and flag art decorating the school.
The Curiosity Crew from the Curiosity Zone visited LOA this past week on Wednesday and sang songs and combined them with a science theme. The children all enjoyed the experience.
Our theme this week is "Backyard Science". The children will be participating in science activities that can be done in our own backyard. Making bubbles, investigating bugs in our gardens and many other fun activities will be the plan for the week. Check out familyeducation.com for the best backyard science experiments to try.
Our Summer Chapel lesson this week from the book "Stepping Stones of Faith" by Anita Edlund will be "God Is Always With Me". "Wherever you go I will watch over you." Genesis 28:15 CEV.
