The presentation will take place on Thursday, March 28 from 1:45-2:45. All are welcome to attend in the sanctuary.

 Call Report

Mrs. Kayla Wilkins declined the call to teach 5th grade. There will be a call meeting this Sunday after the late service to issue a call for our 5th grade/music accompanist position. If you have any input to give on the call, or names to add, please talk to Mr. Gartner by the end of Wednesday.

Flu season is not done. There have been an increase in the number of flu cases. We are in the midst of respiratory illness season, but there are ways to prevent the spread of more illness;  cover your mouth when you cough, wash your hands thoroughly – especially before eating, keep your hands away from your face.  If your child has been running a fever in the past 24 hours, please keep your child home. Also, if your child has had flu-like symptoms such as vomiting, aches, or chills, please use a 24 hour guide before sending them back to school. With a little help from everyone, we can keep those in the building a little healthier.

 Lady Junior Warrior Softball

REGISTRATION Lakeside softball is open to all girls attending one of our Lakeside federation schools or the schools within the federation school's community. Games are held by age group at various parks in participating communities.

GOALS Our goals are to further develop each girl's skills through quality instruction and help each one gain confidence in her ability to contribute both offensively and defensively, to provide competitive opportunities to challenge each girl, to encourage each girl to continue playing at the high school level, and to have fun while building Christian friendships.

A player's age as of December 31, 2018 determines the age in which the player is eligible to play. The youngest player in our program is age 5 as of 12/31/18 and would play in the U8 age group.

A parent or guardian may request an exception to age so that their daughter may play on more than one team or play with an older age group by contacting Ken Walters.

Exceptions will be reviewed after the deadline when final numbers are determined for each level.

The deadline for registration and the payment of fee is Friday, March 22.
