Dear Parents,

Our School Family presentation on patience will be on Friday, March 15th. In class, we have begun to practice our Patience poem and our Bible memory verse, 1 Thessalonians 5:14. As you help your child learn his or her lines, make sure the lines are spoken slowly and clearly. We will also be learning a patience skit, so we have a lot to prepare! Your child has been enthusiastic and is learning to perform with gusto! Thank you for your help at home!

Have a cheer-filled weekend! God bless.

Ethan K. I asked my dad the other day if I could have a pet.

Mariah He looked at me carefully and said, “You’re not ready yet.”

Ethan S. One year later he told me it was time to close my eyes.

Angelica With a smile I waited patiently for my big surprise.

Sherry “What is it?” I thought. A puppy or a gerbil?

Kamrin Dad replied, “His name is Patience, and he’s a baby turtle.”

Anna Every night I feed him before I go to bed.

Mateo And when he is finished, I pet him on his head.

Mia Patience is a happy turtle, who is never in a hurry.

Patrick He knows I take care of him so he doesn’t have to worry.

Riley Patience is slow and gentle; he sure enjoys his day.

Sam His favorite part is when I’m home and I take him out to play.
