Vitamin Drive: We are taking a collection of vitamins for our Mission to the Children. The vitamins will be sent to one of our missions in Mexico. There is a container in each of the classrooms. We are asking that no “Gummi” style vitamins be dropped since they easily melt in the heat. The drive will continue until Wednesday, November 7.

2nd Quarter Mission Offerings – Our 2nd quarter mission offerings will go towards the WELS Military Services. This service by our synod provides spiritual support to our armed forces throughout the world. If you know of anyone in our armed forces who would be interested in this service, I will attach the website for more information and support.

Food Collection Surrounded by bountiful harvests & blessed with many material possessions, our school children will have opportunity to express their “thanks” by participating in a community food drive. Students may bring canned goods or un-opened non-perishable items to chapel beginning Friday, November 9 in addition to regular offerings. We will be displaying the offering in the lobby during November, distributing the food to the local food pantry by December.  St. Paul families urge the sharing of God’s blessings.

Jefferson County Health Department is offering free flu shots to school-age children with or without insurance.  A parent or legal guardian must accompany anyone under the age of 18 to sign permission.  No appointments are needed.  They will be at Lake Mills High School on Thursday, November 15 from 4-7 PM.

PTL Recap - We held our first PTL meeting for this school year. We have a great group, but will always welcome more parents and teachers to join us. We discussed several ways in which the PTL could help out the school. Save the date for our next meeting, Monday November 12 @ 6PM. All Parents, Teachers and Staff are welcome and encouraged to join us. Childcare will be provided.  Thank you once again to everyone that was able to help brainstorm ideas!
