Trunk or Treat - Friday, October 14

We have sign up sheets for candy and popcorn donations on the information table as you enter the school. Candy must be prepackaged and individually wrapped and we would like big bags of popcorn (ex. Valley Pop).  There is also a sign up sheet for decorating your trunk. There are a limited number of spots available, so please sign up soon.

If you would like to help out on the evening of Trunk or Treat, please let Mrs. Surian know.  The event is scheduled to run from 5:00-6:30, but plenty of help will be appreciated for the set-up and clean-up processes, as well as for making sure things go smoothly during the event. 

Thank you for your help!  It's going to be a fun night at St. Paul’s!

School Flu Clinic

St. Paul’s is scheduled for a flu clinic by the FdL County Health Department on Wednesday, November 9th here at school. They are offering the injectable vaccine and the intranasal (FluMist) vaccine this year. Consent forms and information on each vaccine are being sent home with students today. If you are interested in having your child receive a vaccine that day, please fill out the consent form and return it to Mrs. Surian as soon as possible. They would like to have a rough count by Friday, October 14 if possible, so they can make sure they have enough of what they need. Thank you!

Parent Fellowship

A Parent Fellowship event will be held on Friday morning, October 7.  That day, parents are invited to head to the Fellowship Hall immediately after chapel for their opportunity to spend some time with other parents from our school.  If Mr. Hartwig remembers, he’ll provide some donuts to go along with the morning coffee!

St. Paul’s Sings with MLC!

Our K-8 students are looking forward to joining the Martin Luther College choir as they present a special concert here at St. Paul’s on October 19 at 7:00!  This is a great opportunity for our students and families to hear the bold proclamation of the gospel from young men and women who are training for the public ministry!

As a preview, please enjoy this performance of the song the MLC choir has invited our students to join: Draw Near through Christ.  Thank you for joining us on October 19th!!

Also, we are still in need of families to house the choir members. We will need to house 70 of the choir members broken up into pairs of two. On the evening of October 19th.  Those who would be providing lodging would be asked to provide a place to sleep, breakfast (cereal is fine), and transportation from church that night and back again in the morning.  A signup sheet is in the narthex under the picture of Jesus by the Martin Luther room if you can house two or more students. It’s a great opportunity to talk to the future called workers of our synod!   

October Calendars

October calendars are being sent home with students today.
