The 8th Commandment and Meaning
You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.
What does this mean? We should fear and love God so that we do not tell lies about our neighbor, betray him, slander him, or hurt his reputation, but defend him, speak well of him, and explain everything in the kindest way.
The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.
Note for Friday:
This Friday will be our fall harvest party at 2:00. Please be in contact with Mrs. Haase, our room coordinator, if you have any questions about how you can be involved. Report cards will come home on Friday and be electronically released. I will be out Friday for a personal day with my family in Kansas - please make sure to communicate any important information through the office as I may not see it in time to pass it on to my sub. I'm sad I'll miss the fall party (parents here - take pictures, I would LOVE to see them!) and I will be sure that my sub or Mrs. Sanft gets report cards personally handed out to the children.
Looking ahead, next week is a very busy week. Plan to stop in to visit the book fair Monday afternoon, Tuesday, Wednesday (including breakfast with a buddy beginning at 7 am), or Thursday until 2:00. The proceeds benefit our school library. I know Mrs. Sullivan has a long list of books she would like to order!
Tuesday evening is the Candy Corn Festival for Kindergarten and younger students. I'm sure I'll see some of your families that night!
Thursday of next week, students are dismissed at noon. They do not have class on Friday. Thursday afternoon and evening, and Friday morning, are Student conferences. You will receive your time in your report card envelope on Friday. This year conferences will only be half student led, then we will excuse the student and have a few minutes of parent-teacher follow-up. Conferences are tightly scheduled on 20-minute blocks, back to back, many with conferences for another teacher surrounding them. We would love to please, please try our best to keep on schedule for the evening. Thank you so much for your help in this!
In Christ our Mighty Fortress,
