Creator God,
Thank you for the blessings we received this week.
We ask Your Holy Spirit to be with us this weekend
to help us make smart decisions and wise choices.

EDUCATOR APPRECIATION NOTES
Last Thursday was Educator Appreciation Day. Thanks to all students who sent messages of gratitude to De educators. Each day this week, we will feature a few of those messages.

★ Without your help I wouldn’t have the grade I have right now. I got out of the F zone because of your commitment of helping me. Thank you.

★ Thanks for such a great year! You prepared us for the next step in our lives and even though most people don’t see it now, they absolutely will later.

★ I love our lunches. I appreciate it how every day you tell us to have a good day and say our names as well.

KEEP OUR ISLAND BEAUTIFUL
The Environmental Subcommittee of NHS will be hosting its Island Clean-Up event this Saturday, May 7, from 1:00pm to 4:00pm. Join us whenever you can! Staying for the whole event will count as 3 Christian Service hours. Check-in will be on the field and from there, students can begin picking up trash near the school. Some supplies will be provided, but feel free to bring your own gloves and bags if you have them. The person who clears the most trash each hour will get a $10 gift card to the Tare Market, a low waste store in Minneapolis that stocks local products.
