Seminary this Friday!

I am hoping that you have all heard that there WILL be seminary this Friday! The student's day off while teachers attend in-service meetings at the institute has been done away with. This is due to school district furlough days. By attending seminary on those Fridays, we can be finished with our year on the 2nd or 3rd of June instead of the 10th or later.

We are just starting on the saints gathering in Kirtland! Gathering is a great home evening subject!

A quick note on attendance

I just wanted the parents to know what I told the students this morning: After finishing the October roll, some will notice that they have absences even though they attended seminary every day. How could this be??? Due to our new policy, outlined in an earlier blog entry, too many tardies can turn into an absence. A large percent of the class is arriving at least 5 minutes late. Kudos to Dayna and Natalie and Evan who were never tardy during October! Braden and Kiersten and Haley were almost perfect with just 2 "lates". Thank you to all of you who come on time! It makes the class run smoothly and the Spirit's presence more easily felt by all of us.

Lessons I Learned as a Boy

This is one of my favorite stories told by President Hinckley. What would the world be like if we all followed the lead of the older boy? The Spirit of God whispers to us to do good, continually. Let's listen!
