Isaiah 40:31 "...but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.  They will soar on wings like eagles; ..."

Issue No.  38                                                                                          June 7, 2018

From the Principal's Desk...

Tonight we celebrate the graduation of Pearl Burns, Ginger Futrell, Jayden Jarvis, Devyn Rodrigues, Abigail Sicard, and Henry Strand!  Thank you, parents, for sending them here for their education.  It's exciting to see where they're going for high school. 

I also want to thank all the families of First Lutheran Christian School for your faithfulness and support in sending your child/children here!  We look forward to welcoming the new families that will  join us for next year.  I will be mailing the summer letter at the beginning of July with information in preparation for the 2018-2019 school year.


But before that, report cards, Honor Rolls, High Honor Rolls, and any other important information will be mailed to your home on June 15th.  We haven't received the results of the achievement tests yet. Hopefully, we will have received them by the time of the mailing. The mailing will include the school calendar.  School will begin on August 29, 2018.


We do have a lost and found box in the Fellowship Hall with some very nice clothing and other items in it.  Please check it out tomorrow, if you've been looking for something.  What's left will go to Salvation Army.


Well, here it is the last Messenger for this 2017-2018 school year.  God's blessings to all of you.
