What’s New?

School Apparel orders are now in. You may pick your order up in the office. If you prefer to have your child pick the order up, have them stop in the office and we will hand it to them.

Band concert is Thursday December 20th at 6:30 in the gym.  Please arrive by 6:15. Wear band shirts and black bottoms. Members of pre concert ensemble should arrive by 6. Leave instrument cases in the back of the gym. Do not leave any cases in the church.  Band Students have been assigned their band shirts.  Wash as needed.

After Christmas vacation classes resume Thursday, January 3.

Parents, please use the Christmas break to check and replenish your child’s supply of pencils, crayons, paper, notebooks, lunch & milk tickets etc.

The 2nd quarter of our school year ends after our second week back from Christmas vacation (January 11).  Students are reminded to conclude any undone work promptly.


Preschool Open House/Registration

You are invited to our annual open house on Thursday, January 31 from 6:00-7:00 p.m. Come check out the classrooms and see the teachers.  Prior to the open house preschool registration will be as follows:

January 1 – St. Paul members may begin enrolling for the 2019-2020 school year.
January 21 – Families already enrolled in the program may enroll for the 2019-2020 school year
January 31 – Open enrollment for everyone

Slow Down!  Please use extreme caution when driving through the parking lot.  Before school and after school, watch carefully for children and slow down.  Please remind caregivers and grandparents.  We want to keep our children safe.

Basketball Etiquette Reminder – Parents of younger children, if your child is not in the gym watching the game, we ask that they be supervised by a parent. The hallway is too crowded to have students running the hallway. Come cheer on the teams.

Volunteer Opportunity  Our Power Hour program, held every Wednesday from 9:30-10:30 AM could use some extra hands.  We serve 60-75 children on a weekly basis and sure could use some extra help.  Retired?  Grandparent?  Call and ask about this opportunity, 648-2918.

Advent Service Reminders  If your child will be attending the 3:30 Advent services, please pick your child up in the following rooms. Grades K-2 will be held in the 1st grade room, Grades 3-5 will be held in the 3rd grade room, and grades 6-8 will be held in the 6th grade room. If possible, we ask that you pick your child up by 3:15 from those rooms. No student will be allowed to sit without an adult. If a parent is not available and the child would like to attend church, a staff member will sit with the child toward the front of church. If this is the case, we ask that you make arrangements prior to the service. We ask that you make sure your child knows were they are to go before they get to school.

We also ask that if you are attending the supper afterwards that you do not let your child run in the gym during this time. With the amount of people coming and going, especially the elderly, this could very well be a safety hazard. 

Band/Jr. Choir shirts have been handed out to ALL band students and most of the Jr. Choir.  We have a shortage of shirts and will order a few more to assign later. Sizes are limited so they’ve been assigned to the best of our ability.  Too big is better than too small.  If your child has a huge issue with the assigned shirt, please let Miss Radue know.   The band members will wear their shirts for the upcoming Christmas band concert.  Jr. Choir members will wear them for the April Fine Arts Fair as well as the May band/choir concert.  Please keep it in a safe place. The care instructions are included on a sheet with the shirt.

Available for Purchase   We have several Kohl’s gift cards ready for purchase.  You can use them as a gift or to pay off your own Kohl’s charge card.  There are $10, $25, and $50 denominations.  Stop in the office to make your purchase.

Reminder: Dismissal is at noon on Friday, December 21.  There is no lunch and no pick up bus at noon.  Those using childcare are reminded that childcare closes at noon that day.  Please make the proper arrangements.

YEARBOOK PHOTOS: As we begin another school year we would like to collect photographs for consideration for the yearbook.  Please email pictures to our committee at Photographs of sporting events, music events, class parties, school events, every day classroom events, etc. would be appreciated.
