Notes from Mrs. Feeney

This is a bittersweet week. I am having a hard time wrapping my head around this is the last week with my sweet students. As I read with them this week, however, I realized that they are totally ready for 1st grade. They are reading with expression and understanding. They have come so far. 

The verse that we started the year out memorizing keeps coming to mind:

Matthew 5:14-16 “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” I see some little Light Shiners in my class.

Notes from Mrs. Harvey

Oh my goodness. I can’t believe this year is coming to a close! What a year this has been, for sure. I don’t think I could sum up here in this section all you have meant to me this year and what all God has taught me. I am so so thankful for each of you! I look forward to being able to see you sometime in the near future and hug each one of you. You guys have done an amazing job!

Notes from Mrs. Smith

Dear Second Graders,

I cannot believe the end of school is here. I am so very proud of each of you for the progress you’ve made this year. You have all learned and grown in so many ways!

It is hard to say “goodbye” without giving you each a hug. Once you are my student, you are always “my children” in my heart. May the Lord bless each of you. Have a fun and safe summer. 

Much Love,
Mrs. Smith

    Music with Mrs. Foss

    I can’t believe this is our last week together before summer break! It’s been unusual having our music classes virtually, but I’m so thankful for Wednesdays when I get to see your faces and hear about what you are learning. I’m also looking forward to what this week has in store for us as we wrap things up! Let me know if you need help with anything at all! I’m happy to set up a Zoom call with you.

    Click here to see your music assignments for this week! And don’t forget about our last Zoom meeting on Wednesday! 

    I’ve been reading in Exodus lately for my personal Bible-reading time. God used wondrous and awesome miracles to accomplish his purpose in the great Exodus! He freed His people from slavery (a beautiful picture of how Christ would later free His people from sin) and He brought glory to His name!

    Chapter 15 contains the famous “Song of Moses.” The Israelites sang to God, praising Him for His greatness, His strength, His leadership, His guidance, His power, His love, His provision, His faithfulness, and His Kingship! Verse 20-21 says, “Then Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a tambourine in her hand, and all the women went out after her with tambourines and dancing. And Miriam sang to them: ‘Sing to the Lord, for he has triumphed gloriously, the horse and his rider he has thrown into the sea’!”

    How awesome is that. We have just as much reason, if not MORE, to sing to the Lord! He has triumphed GLORIOUSLY!. He has freed us from the bondage of sin and death! I hope that is a reminder and a blessing to you all as it was to me. I love you very much, guys! Can’t wait to make many more memories with you all next year!

    Can you believe this is the last week? I can’t! I have very much enjoyed being a part of the Coram Deo Family. And I am so looking forward to next year!

    Notes from Mrs. Harvey

    Thank you all so much for making my quarantine birthday so special. It was great to see your faces on zoom and I very much enjoyed the cheesecake, cards, messages, gifts, and all-around just feeling loved and celebrated. To top it all off, God gave us the great gift of breaking ground on our new house on my birthday! So special…. If all goes well, we are set to be in by mid-August. So it was an exciting week around my house. 

    I am so, so very proud of all the hard work you are doing. We are living in a story none of us would’ve written and you all, parents and students alike, are doing so well! Keep up the hard work. The finish line is in sight!

    Thank you all for bearing with me as our third granddaughter was born. As many of you know, Annabelle Smith was born Tuesday evening. Both mama and baby are healthy, praise God. It was quite an adventure for Mr. Smith and me, caring for 2 toddlers this week. But again, thanks for your grace and patience! I will email grades home this weekend as I get caught up on schoolwork. Don’t forget to send your child’s spelling list with dictation sentences if you haven’t already. Thank you!

    I can’t believe we have just two weeks left until school is over. I see progress in each and every student. Thanks to you, our wonderful partners in education, your child has continued to learn and grow.

    I wish all the mothers and grandmothers a very Happy Mother’s Day. God bless you all.

      Notes from Mrs. Chasen

      Hi everyone! Crazy to think we are entering the last two weeks of school! This year is not ending the way I had envisioned, but regardless, the students have completed almost all of their curriculum! I am so encouraged by their diligence and hard work in the classroom and at home! I am also so appreciative to partner with such involved and gracious parents as yourselves. 

      After discussing with Mrs. Griffin that the students would be very close, but not quite finished with their English grammar workbooks and composition books, we have decided that we will collect these at the end of the year to have them finish at the start of next school year. We still have two more weeks of hard work in them, but please hold onto these as we figure out a way to collect them at the end of the year so we may hold them for next year. More to come on this!

      Notes from Mrs. Smith

      I was so encouraged and excited to meet with your children in our 1:1 times this week. It is so awesome to see the growth over time in each child. As I assessed each child’s reading fluency, it was great to hear how they have all progressed. You (parents and grandparents) are an inspiration to me as we have worked as a team, especially this year in our final quarter, knowing that we each played a part in students continuing to learn and move forward with their studies. 

      As you know from Mr. Seibel’s email, my son, Jacob, and his wife, Daniela, are scheduled for an induction to have their third child on Tuesday morning. My husband and I are the only family members in contact with them since COVID, so we are Chief-In-Charge of the two toddlers. We will be staying at their house while Jacob and Daniela are at the hospital. 

      If all goes as planned, we will be staying the night Monday and Tuesday, but are unsure of how much we will be needed once they get home. Had this been a “normal” time, I would have taken off a few days to spend with the family. I have created plans for this week that are attached, and I plan to meet with your child in small groups and for our class group meeting on Monday. I am unsure if we will meet for 1:1 conferences this week, so I will email you if we are to meet.

        SEVENTH/EIGHTH GRADE
        Notes from Mrs. Weirich

        NOTA BENE: On Wednesday, May 6, the 8th-grade students will be taking the Classic Learning Test. In anticipation of the assessment, students will have an additional flexible day prior to the test. To see a practice or example test, please click here. Please keep in mind that the practice test is leveled to grade 10. Students who do not need the additional FLEX time should work ahead in literature.

        If your family is having difficulties uploading homework to Google Drive, please just email me the homework.

        I can’t tell you how much I miss you all! I’m sorry about how technical difficulties affected our meetings on Wednesday! Hopefully, the problem will be solved by next week. In the meantime, please just know that you are all in my prayers and I can’t wait for the day to be able to see you face-to-face again! If you ever have a specific way that I can pray for you, please email me as I’d love to add those to my prayer list.

        Psalm 150

        Praise the Lord!
        Praise God in his sanctuary;
        praise him in his mighty heavens![a]
        Praise him for his mighty deeds;
        praise him according to his excellent greatness!
        Praise him with trumpet sound;
        praise him with lute and harp!
        Praise him with tambourine and dance;
        praise him with strings and pipe!
        Praise him with sounding cymbals;
        praise him with loud clashing cymbals!
        Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!
        Praise the Lord!
