School Mission Project (1st Quarter) The first quarter mission offering is going towards the Apache Mission 125th Anniversary. 125 years ago our synod began doing mission work on the various Apache reservations in Arizona.

Shorts  Parents, please make sure you check the shorts your child is wearing to school. It seems each season some students are pushing the boundaries a little more. Just because society says it’s ok, doesn’t mean we as Christians can’t be different in what we wear.

Online Tuition Payment Option: If you would like to pay tuition online, go to www.stpaullakemills.org and to Connect then Give.

Wisconsin’s Required Health Records:  include 6th gr Varicella (chicken pox) & Tdap vaccine this year. Kindergarten needs the following totals: 4 DTP/DTaP/DT/TD, 4 Polio, 2 MMR, 3 Hep B, 2 Varicella (chickenpox) (Call the office with date of vaccine.) Kindergarten & 5th graders need a Dr.’s physical. If you haven’t already done so, please provide updated information to the office as soon as possible 648-2918.

Covering Textbooks: Parents, fulfill our school policy by helping children in covering school books.

Student Absence : If your child will be absent for the day, please call the school office before 8 am. When students are absent for illness, vacations, funerals, etc.,  a written excuse from the parent is requested.  Written excuses from the doctor/dentist should be included for school day appointments.  Late students check in at the office prior to entering class for both attendance & lunch count.

Permission to use children’s pictures is assumed unless parents contact school with specific written requests. Our intent is to use photos only for school purposes & local publication only on occasion. (Please be assured that we will NOT sell photos or student identification to vendors.)

Women's Bible Study begins Tuesday, September 11, meeting from 8-9 am in the school library.  This Bible study is open to women of all ages.  If you have small children, you are welcome to bring them along and let them play while you enjoy some time being strengthened in God's Word. Questions, contact Jill Doering (648-3338)

St. Paul Childcare follows the St. Paul School schedule.  On days there is no school, childcare is not provided.  However, on early release days, (when the school day ends at 12:30 PM) childcare will be available until 3 PM.  Please keep this in mind as you look ahead at your child’s schedule.

 PARKING LOT  Please help us in keeping our students safe:

  1.  Park in lot as marked
  2.  Parents and students use crosswalk. There will only be one crossing guard at the crosswalk by the front entrance to school.
  3.  Use airport parking procedure. The parking video is on the school website. If you did not see the video on back to school night, please take time to watch it.  When picking up your child, please drive to the inside of the cones all the way down to the dirt road.
  4. Next week when the Lake Mills bus is running, for the afternoon pick-up line, please remember to wait at the end of the parking lot until both buses have come through before you proceed to the back side of school.
  5. If you do not have to park, please use airport flow
  6. If you choose not to use the after school airport pick-up, you will have to pick your child up from inside the building. They will not be permitted to leave the building without an adult with them.

Thank you.
