IT ALL BEGAN WITH GOD

Welcome to the new school year. Once again, the Lord has blessed us abundantly here at St. Paul. We have one new teacher, Mrs. Kelly Tomhave who will be working with our Early Childhood Center. We are blessed to have 12 new students this year along with a class of 20 new kindergarteners. Our beginning enrollment of 179 is the highest in a number of years, and our preschool enrollment of 52 is the 2nd highest it has ever been! I ask that you continually keep the school in your prayers as we go through the 2018-2019 school year.
 
Welcome students & parents!  We  are privileged to serve all 52 in our early childhood center (3K-4K) and 179 children K-8 with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.   New Kindergarten Families include: Dunneisen, Hasel, Hein, Martin, McFarlane, Parks, Schaub, Seidl, Stillman, Sukow, Vogt, and Zellmer.  Others new to St. Paul: Hannah(7) Buss; Chelsea(8) Gumz; Kayla(6) & Will(4) Hirschfeld; Ashlyn(5) Jones; Isabella(5), Jaden(2) & Sophia(K) McFarlane; Lily(6) & Noah(2) Montez; Evan(7) & Luke(2) Neumann; and Landyn(3) Sabol. May God bless our new students with a smooth transition.
 
CHAPEL/MISSION OFFERING  The students attend chapel every Friday morning from 8:05-8:35 AM.  Parents and relatives are invited to attend Friday chapel services.  The children have the opportunity each Friday to bring a mission offering to chapel.  This voluntary offering is used to help support the work that our church and synod are doing to share the news of salvation through Jesus Christ with others.  The first quarter mission offering is going toward The Apache Mission 125th anniversary.

CONGREGATION HELP ENCOURAGED, TO STRENGTHEN OUR SCHOOL
It takes many behind the scene moms, dads, grandpas, grandmas, aunts, and uncles to help make a successful school year. We are often looking for volunteers for various activities such as librarian, correct papers, tutor students, assist with sports, read to student, along with a variety of other activities. If you would be willing to help, please contact Mr. Gartner to offer a specific time or talent.
 
BOUNTIFUL HARVEST?  Our school lunch program welcomes excess fresh produce (potatoes, tomatoes, squash, zucchini, cucumbers, corn, etc.) from your garden.  Take them to the kitchen door (in back of building) during morning hours.
