Our classroom Christmas party will be at 10:00 on December 21. You should have received an email from me that explains how you can sign up to bring something for the party. Please do not feel obligated to bring something. We always have plenty.


Chapel offerings:  Our offerings for December and January will be given to Lutherans for Life. LFL is a Gospel-motivated voice for life. They provide materials that help people to see Jesus, the Lord of Life, who rescues from sin and death and who gives the hope of eternal life through Him.


The date of our Christmas Program has been changed. The program will be December 18 at 6:00 pm. The play is titled Shepherds, Sheep, and A Savior. The first graders will be sheep, and the second graders will be angels. The first graders will need to dress in gray, white or black pants and tops to look more like sheep. The second graders will wear white “angel gowns,” so they could wear clothes appropriate for church.


The PTL will be having a silent auction of Class Baskets. The theme for the 1st and 2nd grade basket is “Arts and Crafts.” Everyone is asked to donate an item for the basket. The donated item can be anything that fits the theme. Please bring your items to school by this Friday, December 14. If anyone would like to put the donated items together in the basket and get it ready for the auction, please contact me. Thank you in advance!


Scrip: You may support our school by purchasing SCRIP cards. These are "gift" cards that you spend at businesses, and a percentage of the purchase price comes back to our school. Talk to Ms. Janice in the office, and she will tell you which cards she has in stock. She can also order cards that are not in stock. These make great stocking stuffers!!! Just stop by the office to talk to Ms. Janice and support St. Paul's Lutheran School.


If you do not have a Church home, you are invited to join us at St. Paul's for worship. Saturday evening services are at 5:30. Sunday morning worship is at 9:00, followed by Sunday School and Bible Classes for high school youth and adults.


You are also welcome to join us at St. Paul’s for Advent services on Wednesday evenings at 6:30. There is a meal served in the gym prior to worship at 5:30 pm. There is a free will donation for the meal. This week’s meal is a chili cook-off. Come and enjoy some chili and vote for your favorite!
