Luke 2:14: Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
Every month is busy at Emmanuel but December is definitely the busiest.
We started the month off with our book fair. The children loved being able to pick out their very own books and teachers appreciated the many books parents bought for the classrooms.
Ms. Deby and Ms. Monica had a tremendous time on their field trip to see “Santa’s Spy” presented by the Twin City Ballet. Teachers, parents and most importantly the children agreed it was a great performance.

Moore, Byron.jpg

Question: What exactly is an estate plan? I hear people talking about them, but I am not sure what one is exactly. Where do you get one? Who does that for you?
Answer: Even though you are not sure what an estate plan is, I’ve got news for you: you’ve got one.

Kelly Caldwell’s students at Dubach School participated in the LSU AgCenter Germ Cave Exhibit. The Germ Cave shows students just how quickly germs spread. They learned that the No. 1 way to reduce the spread germs is to wash their hands.
Students participated in the five steps for washing hands, 1) wet hands with clean water, warm if it’s available, 2) rub hands together with soap and scrub all surface, 3) rub hands together vigorously for 20 seconds, 4) rinse hands well under running water, 5) dry hands with a paper towel or air dryer. Turn the faucet off with paper towel if possible.

Irby, Marna.jpg

This has been one of the busiest number of days I’ve had in a row for a while, but one day turned out to be more than I had anticipated.
