Any other students who have summer birthdays, if you would like to celebrate your child’s birthday at school, please let me know which date you would like to do this. There are a number of summer birthdays, so it would be best to spread out the celebrations over this week. Thank you!

 

Come eat at El Tapatio this evening and help raise money for St. Paul’s! 10% of all purchases will go to St. Paul’s PTL. There will also be a TIP JAR where guests can donate additional money for St. Paul’s PTL. (This is not to be confused with the usual tip you leave for the waiter/waitress who provides service for your meal. You are still asked to leave a tip for the waiter/waitress).

 

I hope everyone enjoyed the Talent Show. It’s always fun to see the children use their God-given gifts in unique ways. Thank you for being there and for making sure that your child was there. This is a busy time of year, and I appreciate any sacrifices you made to help make the talent show and spaghetti dinner be a success.

 

Summer reading is important. Sedalia Public Library and Boonslick Regional Library both offer wonderful summer reading programs. Be sure to sign up and be involved. You can earn prizes doing something fun—READING! The flyer your child brings home has information about the Sedalia Public Library program.

 

Vacation Bible School is another important summer activity. St. Paul’s and Our Savior will have a joint Vacation Bible School July 21-25 at Our Savior. You are welcome to attend.

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. Just stop by the office to talk to Ms. Janice and support St. Paul's Lutheran School.
