Cleaners: March 2-8, 2020 (Chambers/Slattery)

Mission Offering:  Mission offering for 2nd semester will go to Martin Luther College, our synod’s training school for called workers.  Mission offering last week was $33.00.  Mission offering for the semester is $167.88.
No Hot Lunch:  There’s no hot lunch served tomorrow, Friday, February 28, because North Fond du Lac doesn’t have school.
March Calendars:  March school calendars are coming home with students today.
Food For Thought:  During Lent we’ll gather nutritious food for the Fond du Lac area Food for Thought program that helps feed up to 600 disadvantaged children weekly.  Individual servings are needed, and no glass containers, please.  This is a simple yet meaningful way to show our Christian love and concern for neighbors in our community. There are marked bins in the school entry way for your donations.
Yearbook Pictures:  Wendy Holmes is heading up the school yearbook project this year.  She’s asking for pictures of sports, field trips and classroom pictures, etc.  Only digital copies can be accepted. Please email pictures to Wendy at . Flash drives will be returned. Thank you!
CES:  St. Paul’s is revamping a group called the Christian Education Society (CES).  The CES is a group of parents and teachers dedicated to providing opportunities for family based Christian activities that enhance the lives of St. Paul’s Lutheran School and Church families through fellowship, education and recreation.  We are looking for people to get involved in the infancy of this organization to help set a strong foundation for years to come.  Please consider being a part of the Christian Education Society! Thank you; we’re excited to serve our students!
NOTE:  **We’ll be serving the Lenten Meal on March 25th and will have a sign-up sheet for you at that time.
NFdL Girls Softball:  There is information on the entry-way table for anyone interested in participating in North Fondy Girls Softball.
WLA Football Pancake Feed: WLA Football is hosting its second annual Pancake Feed on Sunday, March 8, from 9:00am-1:30pm in the WLA Commons.  There’s more information available on the entryway table. 
School Day End Time on Wednesdays during Lent:  We are now in the season of Lent and since church begins at 3:30, we will be dismissing classes at 3:20, so that children will have time to connect with their families before the services begin.  This dismissal pattern will continue through the entire season of Lent.  Dismissal will remain at 3:30 all other days of the week.
5-8 Ski Trip:  This year's ski trip date has finally been approved by the good folks at Nordic Mountain in Mt. Morris.  This year’s ski hours will run from 10 AM to 4 PM on Friday, February 28th.  All 5th-8th grade families will receive a sign-up sheet for the trip today.  Please sign and return it to school with payment as quickly as possible.  For those 5th-8th grade students who won't be participating in the ski trip, please note that we will not be able to provide extended care on site for them that day, so it will be the parent's responsibility to make sure they are attended to during the school day.  If you have any questions, please speak with Mr. Hartwig.
Hot Lunch Snow Day Reminder:  When there’s a snow day the hot lunch scheduled for that day will be postponed until school resumes.  For example, if there’s a snow day on Monday, Tuesday’s hot lunch will be Monday’s menu.
School Closings and Delays:  When we have a winter storm, school delays and closings will be announced on KFIZ 1450am, WTCX 96.1 and WFDL 97.7fm.  As a rule, if North Fond du Lac schools are canceled or delayed, St. Paul’s will be, too.  St. Paul’s may not be mentioned separately by name with school closings, it may be announced as North Fond du Lac schools, both public and private.  If you signed up for the Weather Alert system, you will also be notified of closings and delays in the way you requested.  North Fond du Lac has switched over to a different system so if you’re not notified after the first delay or cancellation, please contact the office.  When there’s a 2 hour delay there’s no Before School Care.
