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

Issue No.  31                                                                                          April 12, 2018

From the Principal's Desk...

Yesterday, besides recognizing those who made Honor Roll and High Honor Roll for the 3rd quarter, we also took the opportunity to recognize the great job that Henry Strand did at the National Geographic State level Geography Bee on Friday, April 6th.  Henry placed number 12 out of 100 contestants from all over the state of Massachusetts!!!!  We're very proud of his extensive knowledge of geography!  Mr. Peterson, who also witnessed the activity of the day, said that it was amazing to see the level of knowledge that the contestants showed in the area of geography.  Thank you to the Strand family for the recognition this brings to First Lutheran.

Usually at the end of each quarter I give you an update as to where the monies will go for the next quarter.  This year the third and fourth quarter Chapel offerings are going to "Hope for the Destitute", the ministry of Rt. Rev. Dr. Joseph Ochola Omolo in Kisumu, Kenya.   The need that we want to help with is that the students of the orphanage have the proper uniforms, so that they may go to school.  At the present time we have a total of ... are you ready for this...$507.79!!!! Thank you for your generosity!

Tomorrow is the last day to sign up for tickets for "Take Your Mom to the Merry-go-Round".  This will help us know how many flowers and crafts we'll need to order, as well as how many cupcakes we'll need.  I'll be letting you know when and how you'll be getting your ticket/s.
