From the Principal's Desk...

IT'S DAY 100!

I hope you've heard by now what fun National Lutheran Schools Week was!  I heard a lot of positive comments about the "Animal Adventures" assembly on Thursday! And then there was the surprise for the students at the Pep Rally when the teachers did theri skit!!  Such fun and laughter!!!

My apologies to Emily Leonovich - 5th grade, for leaving her name off the list for High Honor Roll in last week's Messenger.

Thank you, parents, for your flexibility in carline when we need two lines.  That corner of Forer and Isabella is so tight, and it helps alleviate that congestion, especially right after the snow builds up.

The Kayem hot dogs were a big success! Thank you, Mrs. Spice!

 The second graders will offer their music in Chapel on Wednesday, Feb. 27th!  The recorder is a tricky instrument to play!  Thank you, Mrs. Lastowski, for your teaching such an instrument, which prepares them for other instruments in their future, should they desire.

 The cost of the yearbook is $15.00.

This year we are giving the students an opportunity to receive their yearbook at a discount. For each ad or sponsor ship they sell, regardless of size, they will receive $5.00 off of the price of their yearbook. Sell three ads and you will receive your yearbook for free!!!


We need sponsors and advertisers to keep our yearbook costs down. Asking friends and relatives that own businesses is a great way to start. Also, check with your doctor and your dentist.

Sponsorships are a great way to congratulate a graduate or let your child know how proud you are of them.  Costs for ads are as follows:
