Zoology: Swimming Creatures of the Fifth Day
Explore the wonders of the swimming creatures created by God on the fifth day. We’ll dive right in to learning about whales, dolphins, seals, manatees and all kinds of fish and sharks. We’ll also uncover a world of crabby crustaceans, sea snails, octopus, coral, sand dollars and so much more. Come join us as we splash in wonder at God’s designs in the amazing aquatic animals he formed.

PE will be centered around having fun with a variety of games and athletic activities. The kids will enjoy learning new games and skills in a team atmosphere. Kids will be expected to wear appropriate shoes and clothing for indoor and outdoor athletic activities. We are excited to spend another year with your kids!

Tomato-ey Tuesday

Wild-Card Wednesday

Thrifty & Thankful Thursday

Fancy Friday

Soupy Saturday

Sandwich Sunday

Mexican is anything from tacos to Mexican casserole, burrito, etc.

Tomato-ey is anything tomato based, from the obvious like pizza and spaghetti, to baked ravioli.

Wild-Card freedom day. Leftovers or another Fancy.

Thankful is something ALL my kids enjoy like hot dogs, chicken nuggets, etc.

Fancy is our night to go out or try something new.

Soup and Sandwich speak for themselves.
