Chapter Dinner:  Great food! Great company! And great entertainment! Thank you to our guest speakers: Rachel, Paige, Rosie, Kaci, Richard and Nate. It was exciting to see how they had chosen pieces they could use during the upcoming holidays and used the speaking skills they have been learning. Mark your calendars for our next Chapter Dinner on November 15!

P3 + R3 = C3: During chapter we discussed how we used P3 for our Chapter Dinner: Purpose, Prepare and Present. Now that we have “presented” our dinner, we will proceed to the next phase: R3 – Rate, Respond and Record. Please take time as a family to discuss what went well and what we could work on to improve our next Chapter Dinner. Then complete the Chapter Dinner form. We welcome both parent and student feedbackJ

Operation Christmas Child: We will be collecting small items for Christmas boxes for children around the world through November 15. Samaritan’s Purse will deliver these gift boxes along with the good news of Christmas during the Christmas season.  If we all pitch in and purchase a few small items we will be able to fill several boxes. We don’t want to just talk about caring; we want to show we care too. Check out the list on their website.

Chapter Snapshot: We will continue filming next week so please dress appropriately again.
