This Week In Religious Education

This week holds many opportunities for public witness in support of what we value, and our high school group is planning on attending the Women's March in Olympia together. You, as a family, may also be planning on attending a march or a rally. This article from Parent Map gives some helpful tips on preparing your kids for a large crowd event:

It also helps kids feel more prepared for an event if they have a sign to hold. Last Saturday we held an event here to make signs and hats that was a lot of fun, but you can make a sign at home, too!

Snacks Needed

snacksThe snack cupboard is bare again! If you can, please bring in donations of non-perishable snack foods to stock the cupboard, or consider bringing a fresh fruit snack for class on a Sunday morning (call or email ahead to make sure no one else is also bringing a fresh snack).

Snacks must contain no: tree nuts, strawberries, or avocadoes. Gluten and dairy free snacks are encouraged as well.

Great ideas for snacks are: juice (we have cups, so bottles of juice are fine), popcorn, crackers, rice cakes, dried fruit, muffins, granola bars (if nut free), sometimes cookies.

Yours along the Journey,
