Ahhh...the sound of spring...dads are firing up the razors all across the
country and giving their boys a trim. The birds love it because they use
the hair for their nests. Just another way of going green!
Kelly trims Ty's hair into a classic Marine cut.
Chris is next. Both boys are ready for summer. This was a common site around the area.
Shave the boys and help the birds!

First Christian Church 2010 Concert Series
Faith Singers from Missouri
May 1, Saturday @ 7PM
Free Admission w/ Love offering taken
Weeping Water First Christian Church 2010 Concert Series starts with an awesome concert on May 1, Saturday at 7PM featuring Faith Singers
Faith Singers have been singing together since May 2004. Our first road trip out of state was to Apache Junction, Arizona near Phoenix. While there we ministered in several RV Parks and just had a wonderful time praising our Lord. Since then God has allowed us to travel and sing for His glory to many places. We find no place too small or to large to minister. Our commitment is to our Lord and Saviour and we will do our best to meet the needs of those we serve.
Faith Singers are members of Mo-Kan Gospel Music Association, out of Independence, Missouri, Country Gospel Music Association out of Branson, Missouri and Christian Music Ministries out of Shawnee Kansas.
Faith Singers received the Silver Heart Award for Accapella Artist of the year
for the Central Division of Country Gospel Music Association, in 2006 and 2007.
For the last several years we have sang at the Missouri State Fair, we have been on
stage at the Wyandotte County Fair and at many festivals in the northern Missouri
. The concert is free admission and will be located at the First Christian Church, 306 W. H St. with a love offering taken for the ministry. For more information contact 402-269-5508 or www.faithsingerslive.com
A Sightreading Workshop is scheduled for beginners and intermediate players on Monday evenings, from May 17 - June 7, from 6:30 PM - 8 PM, in The Old Avoca Schoolhouse, in picturesque Avoca, Nebraska. This will be a wonderful opportunity for beginners and intermediate players of all ages to sightread music that you've never seen before, and don't have to ever see again. During the workshop, led by Deborah Greenblatt, discover how to negotiate new compositions with minimum stress, and maximum music. The beauty of this workshop is that all you have to do is show up. There is no preparation necessary, although pre-registration is required. The fee for the Sightreading Workshop is $80.00 per person. For more information, call 402-275-3221, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
I think we'll be seeing more of this contraption this summer! Arlo Fleischman
bought this toy to offer a unique way of getting exercise for his friends and family.
I hear they have a goal in mind for a road trip later this summer. More on that later!
SUMMER SCHOOL ENRICHMENT PROGRAM
Informational brochures were sent home last week regarding Summer School Enrichment for our elementary students. Please return the registration forms if you are interested in enrolling your child in the summer School Enrichment Program. We are planning to offer Enrichment classes for our students on Mondays through Thursdays from June 14 through July 1. Please contact the school if you have any questions.
We have had some interest in the Summer Knights Childcare program. However, our numbers are still low and we need more information from the parents that are interested in the program before we can offer the program. We have been directed by the Board of Education to have this childcare program self-supporting and not use any school funds to operate. We will be sending information home on Monday, April 19th regarding the price of the childcare and other pertinent information regarding the program. We will be sending this information home to all of the parents that returned our childcare surveys and indicated that they may be interested in the program. We will ask parents to register their children and make a commitment to attend our childcare so that we can make a decision regarding the viability of the Summer Knights Childcare Program. Please contact the school if you have any questions.
The Elementary Spring Concert is scheduled for April 22, 2010 at 7:00 p.m. This is a required activity for our students and we ask that they wear their best clothes. Students need to arrive by 6:45 p.m.
The EM Volleyball Camp is scheduled for Wed.-Fri. June 2nd-4th. Forms are due by May 15th. Please contact Mary in the school office if you need a new form.

Get Lost in the Weeping Water Valley!
The Scenic Weeping Water Valley spreads from Elmwood to Murray, from Highway 1 to Highway 34. Communities within this valley are Union, Murray, Manley, Nehawka, Avoca, Eagle, Alvo, Wabash, Weeping Water, Elmwood, and Murdock. This scenic area, offering so many unique commercial, historical and cultural destinations, has been literally undiscovered by the surrounding metropolitan areas.
The Scenic Weeping Water Valley Association (SWVA) is made up of 15 area businesses seeking to increase public knowledge of the Valley and its treasures. To help kick-off the summer vacation season, the SWVA is holding a cooperative event during the weekend of April 24 & 25. Special discounts will be available to those who specifically mention the "Get Lost" promotion; thus encouraging residents and tourists alike to "Get Lost in the Valley" and rediscover its treasures.
The list of promotions is so extensive that the SWVA encourages people to visit their website, www.VisittheValley.org to view everything being offered during the last full weekend in April. Those without access to the web may call SWVA President, Barb Slattery of Slattery Vintage Estates in Nehawka with any questions.
