Current Series: Back to School Survival Guide
On Sunday, September 12, we will be continuing the series we started last month called the “Back To School Survival Guide!” During this special eight-week series, kids will learn to listen and hold on to instruction, making this school year the best. This first week uses lessons in the Bible to teach kids how they can make new friends. This series is going to be not only helpful but fun as well. We hope you’ll join us this and every Sunday.
 
Important Parent Note About This Series: I’ve got some fun stuff to include for you, such as lunchbox notes and extra coloring sheets. If you’re interested in some of these fun extras, you’ll find them posted in our BAND group. (info in previous newsletters)

The Great Reno Balloon Race
I’m sure many of you have noticed the balloons in the sky the last few days. This weekend is one of my family’s favorite events in the Reno/Sparks area! One reason I love it so much? It’s completely FREE to the public! It’s a great excuse to get the kids out of bed early, get some fresh air, and spend some quality family time together. If you’ve never been, or it’s been a while, and you’re unsure of the schedule, I’ve got more info below. If you’re looking for even more information (on parking, ride services, etc.), you can check out the official website for the Great Reno Balloon Races HERE.

Tissue Paper Hot Air Balloon Craft
 
One of the Hot Air Balloon Races events is a project that teachers can do with their classes. They make a model hot air balloon out of tissue paper and launch them on Friday morning. I thought how fun it would be for the families to make this a project after watching the balloons this weekend? So I found the instructions and have included the links for the written instructions and the video below.
 
One of the best parts? All you need is Tissue Paper, Construction paper, Scissors, and glue!! How fun is that???? I hope you and your families enjoy it!
