In the spring, communities all over the United States participate in CROP (Communities Responding to Overcoming Poverty) Hunger Walks. Austin holds the seventh largest walk in the United States, and has raised 3 million dollars since 1970. Austin’s walk is at Camp Mabry this Sunday, March 23. Registration is at 1:45 p.m. and step-off, at 2:30. Covenant members may still donate to a church walker. Our walkers will be on the patio before they head out to the event this Sunday. In fact, those interested may still join the group. Contact Laura Hargrave or donate to the Covenant team online.
What We’ve Been Up To… Sweet Home Covenant You Can Still Order Photo Books Perhaps you have seen the adorable photo books for each class? They were on display at the fundraiser and are currently outside of some of the classrooms.

The verse “Sing praises to the Lord,” (Psalm 9:11) is being repeated throughout the next few weeks by Munn, Jill and Christy. They are learning through the Bible Stories of Jesus Entering Jerusalem (Matthew 21:1-11, 15-16; Mark 11:1-10) and the Last Supper and Good Friday (Matthew 26:17-20, 26-29; Mark 14:12-17, 22-25). They will also be rehearsing for Easter Chapel, which is coming up in April. Please talk with your child about Chapel and learn with them as they digest these important concepts. They may even teach you a song or two! _______________________________________ Make and Take This month, the Make and Take will be on Wednesday, March 19th and Thursday, March 20th.

Thanks for the recommendation, Brooke!http://seriouslyforreal.com/seriously-for-real/99-life-hacks-that-could-make-your-life-easier/ Music Web Site (Submitted by Barb Miaso) I invite you to visit the web site that I started several years ago to give you and your children access to the songs that we are singing in music class and chapel. Unfortunately, I have not updated it recently, but hopefully will do so shortly. However, on this site you will find numerous songs that are already posted for you to enjoy.The site is organized so that you can search various categories for songs, such as by music class or chapel, by age of the child, by active or quiet songs, and by unit number. You can also search by song title. Also included are the chapel and music lesson plans for each unit, as well as other items of interest (listed under “Music Notes”). For each song, there is a link to the words and motions. Just go to “www.missbarb.org” and enter user name “music” and password “pr3sk00l” (00l is zero zero and lower case “L”). I hope that you will enjoy this with your children. ~ Barb Miaso ___________________________________________ Happy Birthday to You!
