    Verse of the Day: But thanks be to God!  He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.  1 Corinthians 15:57

    What a blessing our Applewood families are!  The STUCO students were able to fill 33 Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes!  They exceeded their goal by 8 boxes!!!  Thank you to each of you for making a difference in the lives of 33 children all around the globe.  May you and your families be blessed this Thanksgiving season.  Next week will be a short, but busy, week at school.  Our K-8th grade students have been busy preparing for their performances at the Thanksgiving Feast.  Thank you in advance to our Room Parents for spending the morning in the classrooms with students, to our Thanksgiving Feast Coordinators for planning the meal, and to all of the volunteers!  The Thanksgiving Feast wouldn't be a success without all of the many hands that help prepare for that day.  With next week being a short week, there will be no bulletin.

    Scrip Wallet Sign Up: November 19 @ 3:15 - If your family would like assistance getting signed up for Scrip access on your phone, stop by the office after school and Mrs. Greer and Mrs. Furrey will help walk you through the process of getting signed up.

    Spanish Caroling: Friday, December 7 at 7 pm-midnight - Grades 9th-12th - Permission forms are due in the office by Wednesday, November 28.  Our past and present Spanish class students will begin their annual “parranda,” Christmas  caroling with a Puerto Rican twist.  The students learn Christmas songs in Spanish and sing their hearts out from home to home for one evening. The tradition in Puerto Rico begins right after Thanksgiving. Carolers will sing accompanied by musicians and go from home to home till the morning. The twist in Puerto Rican culture is that the ones who receive the surprise mini-concert open up their home and welcome the singers inside to enjoy warm or cold refreshments and appetizers!  Would you like us to come Caroling at your home that Friday evening? We can just come to sing or you can also host our group with some goodies to keep us going till midnight! Let Mrs. Leon (660-473-2503) know if you would like us to come to your home and if you want us to sing or to sing and eat! First come, first served, so contact Mrs. Leon quickly. We can only accommodate 7-8 homes!
