Psalm 81

R. Sing with joy to God our help.

“My people heard not my voice,

and Israel obeyed me not;

So I gave them up to the hardness of their hearts;

they walked according to their own counsels.”

R. Sing with joy to God our help.

“If only my people would hear me,

and Israel walk in my ways,

Quickly would I humble their enemies;

against their foes I would turn my hand.”

R. Sing with joy to God our help.

“Those who hated the LORD would seek to flatter me,

but their fate would endure forever,

While Israel I would feed with the best of wheat,

and with honey from the rock I would fill them.”

R. Sing with joy to God our help.

Home & School Association

The Home and School Executive Committee proposes the following amendment to its Bylaws.

Section VI (Officers) , Part 5(Treasurer), Subsection E

Make disbursements as authorized by the Executive Committee or membership in accordance with the budget adopted by the membership.  No check is to be written over Three hundred fifty dollars ( $350.00) without getting prior approval  from the Executive Committee in a vote.

The change will allow the treasurer to respond to the day to day needs of our children.  The current limit is $50.00 which requires the committee to constantly vote on funding for even the most basic of events.

Please come to the first meeting (August 18 @ 6:30 in the gym) to discuss and vote on this Amendment.  We also would like your input on other issues being considered by the board.
