2016-17 Week 12 — November 1

Don’t forget–no school on Monday (today!)! Enjoy your day off! The other teachers and I will be at school working to give you our best every day. 🙂 We’ll be happy to have you back with us on Tuesday!

Novena for the Election

I should have shared this with you last week, but you can always jump in where we are. I’d like to invite you to pray a Novena for the Election between now and Election Day. This isn’t to pray for a certain candidate over another but rather to pray that God’s will is done and that our country makes the best decisions possible. If you’re interested, you can read more here.

Big Game This Week!

On Friday, we’ll go to our first Football Playoff game since 2008! Whether you’re going to the game or not, please keep our athletes, band, cheer, color guard members, students, faculty, and coaches in your prayers. For anyone traveling to the game, we ask for travel mercies and the safety of all involved. It’ll be an exciting week here at MCPS, so let’s do our best to cheer our team on to victory!
