NEW THIS WEEK

Every family Invite – 3K-8th Grade

The leaders are planning a meeting to discuss the plans for the new sanctuary and early childhood center. A hot dog dinner will be provided on April 11 from 6:00-6:30 and a brief presentation will follow beginning at 6:30. There will be childcare provided during the presentation portion for children up to 5th grade. A sign up genius email will be sent out so we can get an accurate count for those attending the dinner and/or presentation. Hope to see many of you there so you can hear the many exciting things happening here at St. Paul.

Preschool will be in session April 6.  It was previously reported that there would be no preschool on Friday, April 6.  Plans have changed and there will be preschool as scheduled on April 6.

4th Quarter Mission Offering

The 4th quarter mission offering will be designated towards Operation Go. Operation Go consists of Lakeside students going out to various parts of North America from as far south as the Caribbean, as far north as Alaska, out east to New York, and as west as Idaho. Each designated group will have its own mission focus. A number of our past St. Paul students will be involved in these mission outreach ventures. Let’s remember these teenagers in our prayers and our offerings.

April 14-15 – Fine Arts Fair at Lakeside.  In addition to instrument, music, and proper black & red attire, each band student must bring his own music stand.  While stands will be provided for solos, they will not be provided for the group band.  If you need a music stand, please get one.  They are available for purchase at White House of Music.

Once a family applies for a voucher and Lakeside verifies the information, what’s next? The answer is: “Wait!”

The application period ends April 20. Then, the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) must process applications from throughout the state. It takes time to do this. Typically in early-mid June, each applicant family receives an email from the DPI informing it on the status of its application: the student receives a voucher, or (s)he is on a waiting list to receive a voucher. To date, every verified WPCP applicant to Lakeside has received a voucher. Furthermore, since Lakeside opened 107 seats for 2018-2019 - including 50 for incoming freshmen - it is likely that every applicant will once again receive a voucher.

There is less than a month remaining to apply. If you plan to apply, do it soon.

For further information how the WPCP may serve your family, contact Principal Grasby at Lakeside (920-648-2321).
