More Kleenex Needed: Every week we go through at least 4 boxes

Untied shoes has become a problem. Some would walk around all day without ever stopping to tie their shoes. So, starting Monday, everyone will keep track of how often their shoes are untied. Untied shoes during a “Shoe Check” would cost them a dime. I suggested we should collect the money and put it in Chapel at the end of the year.  We’ll send home our results and leave the donation up to you at the end of the year.

FOUND: Stainless steel tall Coffee mug that has Mister “P” Express, Inc. written on the side. It was left on the hallway table outside of 2nd grade classroom the day of the Jamboree. I will send it home with your child next week if it is yours.

I will not be in school on Mon. or Tues. If my daughter doesn’t have the baby on her own before Monday, the Dr. is going to induce. As she puts it, Monday is eviction day for the new Cooperette. I’ll let you know what happens. Please keep the Mackie family in your prayers, as we wait the arrival of the newest grandchild.

Blessings, Mrs. Mackie
