Mission Offering

Mission offering for the 2nd semester will be going to WLA, our area Lutheran high school.  Mission offering last week was $88.95. Mission offering for the semester is $830.00.

End of Year Field Trip

If you have not turned in your permission slip with payment yet, please return it by tomorrow (Friday, May 13) morning. We need to give them a final count.

Our kindergarten through eighth grade students will be taking two buses to the Cave of the Mounds on Tuesday, May 24.  Since this is an all-school trip, we are hoping several parents will be available to join us as chaperones (all students will be transported on buses, but we’ll be happy to give parents the option of driving separately if they’d prefer (Buses can be noisy, but we’ll have plenty of room available.)). We will be leaving the school at 8:30am and returning around 4:30pm.

The cost for the field trip will be $25.00 per person (student, chaperone).  

We’d love for you to join us so that you can spend a day in the caves with our students! 

Teacher Appreciation Thank You

Our teachers thank you!  Sincerely, we thank you.  Enthusiastically, we thank you.  Your kindness and support for teacher appreciation week (and your kindness and support all year long) are greatly appreciated!  Our goal is to continue to work hard to be a blessing to both you and your child as we partner together in your child’s education.  God bless you all!

8th Grade Pictures/8th Grade Collage Posters

As our academic year comes to an end, it is time for us to acknowledge our 8th grade students as we reflect back on their years at St. Paul’s Lutheran School and as we celebrate their bright futures. With that in mind, we’re inviting all 8th grade students to bring a 5x7ish sized baby picture and a similarly sized current picture, which will be displayed on our hallway’s bulletin board.

8th Grade students are also invited to create a poster board sized picture collage of themselves.  These can feature photos of them throughout their life.  These poster board collages will be displayed in our school hallways.

Spring Festivals!

Preschool will kick things off with A Trip to the Zoo: a musical about various animals in the zoo.
K-2 will present Pajama Party: a musical review about how bedtime can be a blast.
The fun begins at 2:00pm on Sunday, May 15th in the gym.

3-6 will be presenting the classic Peter Pan. Join us as Peter Pan and all the other beloved characters play around in Neverland.
7-8 will present “And Then There Was One”. It’s a spoof on a murder mystery. Join them for the intrigue, suspense, and probably a laugh or two as we ask, “who did it?”
The fun starts at 1:00pm on Sunday, May 22 in the gym.

Piano Lessons for ‘22-’23 school year

Mrs. Nell will be offering piano lessons to our students again next school year. If you are interested in having your child(ren) take piano lessons, please contact Mrs. Mary Nell at 920-238-5752. Thank you!

Girl Pioneers

For the final girl Pioneer meeting the girls made shut-in cards, decorated planters and got to see and smell some mint, thyme, basil, and rosemary. Then they planted either petunias or pansies in one planter, and planted marigold seeds in a smaller pot.

These are outdoor plants. They enjoy sunshine, but will definitely need water. If we don't get rain, they should be checked each day to see if they're dry.

The marigolds should start coming out of the soil within a week. If your daughter's marigolds don't grow, let Kathy Thurow know and she can get you some more seeds.

Thank you, parents, for getting your daughters to the meetings each month. Hopefully they were able to learn a little something each time, and have a good time with it. A special thank-you goes to all the leaders, and to the parents who stayed and helped at the meetings. We couldn't do it without you! Hopefully we'll be able to continue this again next year.

We hope you have a good and safe summer. Thank God from whom all blessings flow!
