 What’s New?

 Congratulations to Joseph Metzger for qualifying for the State Geography Bee finals. As far as we can remember, Joseph is the first student from St. Paul to qualify at this level!

 Group Band Change – Please mark on your calendars that there will be NO group band on Thursday, March 28, BUT everyone should bring their instruments on Friday, March 29 for group band.

 Daylight Savings Time – Please remember to set your clocks ahead by 1 hour this Saturday evening.

Lenten Service Room Pick Up – As we have been doing in the past, the students that are attending the 3:30 Lenten services will wait for you to pick them up. Grades K-2 will be in the 1st grade room; grades 3-5 will be in the 4th grade room. Grades 6-8 will be in the 7th grade room. If possible, please pick your child up by 3:20. Those not picked up will sit up front with a teacher.

 Wednesday Evening Meals –We are asking for your help in regards to the Wednesday Lenten suppers. We are asking that the gym area be kept as a dining hall for the evening and not a gymnasium. People are coming back and forth, including the elderly, and we want to keep it as a safe environment for everyone. If students are running around and playing tag, they are not watching for those coming and going. Thank you for your help.

Social Media Presentation  - Officer Oestreich from the Lake Mills Police Department will be presenting on the dangers of social media and how it can affect your kids. The presentation will be given to the students in grades 5-8, and we encourage any parents that would like to attend from any grade level to join us for this presentation. The presentation will take place on Thursday, March 28 from 1:45-2:45. All are welcome to attend in the sanctuary.

Spring Break for School is March 18-22. Both Lakeside & St. Paul share similar dates.  God bless your family time together.  There will be no daycare during spring break.

 Track Season begins after Spring Break.  Be part of the action!  We have all kinds of events for all kinds of interests (shot put & softball throw, high & long jumps, sprints & distance runs, and relays.) Come join the team! Meets are May 4 at Lakeside and May 11 at Fort Atkinson.

 Thrivent Choice Dollars – If you have a Thrivent policy and have not yet designated your choice dollars, please consider the school or church for your designation. The designation needs to be made by March 31st. If you have any questions, please see Mr. Gartner.

 Call Report

In last Sunday’s call meeting, the congregation issued a call to Miss Deanna Rahn to teach 5th grade and accompany music. Please keep her in your prayers as she deliberates where to serve next school year.

Mrs. Megan Proeber has accepted our call to teach 3rd grade and assist with athletics in the next school year.  May God be with her as she makes this transition.

 Student Teacher   We would like to welcome Haleigh Weiers to St. Paul for the next 10 weeks. She will be doing her student teaching in the 5th grade classroom under the instruction of Mrs. Enger. May God bless her time here as she gets one step closer to graduation.

 Repeats

Yearbook: We need pictures to complete the yearbook. Grades 3,7,8 are in desperate need of candids. If you have candids from any (except the Harvest Hop) so far this school year it would be appreciated. Please email to yearbookspl@gmail.com

  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.

Jr. Warriors Football   All boys entering 6-8th grade in the fall of 2019, and who are members of our area Lutheran congregations, are eligible. This program gives athletes the opportunity to experience football with fellow Christians. Visit bit.ly/2EcQ5T5 for more info!

Register for Warrior Summer Camps  If you’re in 5-8th grade and like football, basketball, running, soccer, golf, volleyball, or STEM, Lakeside has a camp for you! These camps allow for quality instruction and fun competition among fellow Christian athletes at a reasonable cost during June and July. Start at llhs.org/k8sports

K-8 Extra footwear – We are asking that all students bring an extra pair of footwear to school for recess. It really helps in keeping the rooms and church clean when we can minimize the muddy traffic areas.
