Mission Offering: Our 1st semester mission offering will go to Jesus Cares Ministry.  Jesus Cares Ministries (JCM) assists congregations in reaching out to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, their families and communities.  Attached to the Pioneer Press each week is an offering envelope students may use for their chapel offering.  Mission offering last week was $18.21.  Total for the semester is $82.08.
Concessions:  For the past several years, Julie Kemnitz and Corey Hintz have taken the lead running and organizing our concession stand during basketball season. The funds raised from concessions are used to support our athletic fund and gym improvement project. This coming season will be the last year that Julie and Corey will be taking the lead position in concessions. Therefore, we will need to have a new leader(s) for the 2019-20 season. It would be best if a new leader could spend this year shadowing Julie and Corey to learn the ropes. If you are interested in this opportunity or have further questions, please see Mr. Lehman, Julie (920) 979-7965 or Corey.
Soccer Tournaments:  The schedule for this weekend's WALL Cup has gone home with your soccer player.  If you did not receive one, please check with your child.  If they have misplaced the schedule, please see Mr. Lehman and he will get you one.
Information for next weekend's soccer tournament in New Holstein has not yet arrived.  It will be handed out as soon as it is ready.  Thank you for your patience.

8th Grade Parent Mixer at WLA this Friday Night!:  WLA is hosting a Parent Mixer at 6pm next Friday, September 21, to allow parents (first time to WLA and current to WLA) a chance to visit and get to know one another. Some faculty and staff will be on hand to answer questions or concerns. Information will also be available for parents to take home. BUT, the primary reason for the Mixer is simply to get a chance to meet and greet and have fun with other parents.  -Pastor Janke
Cross Country:    WLA will be hosting a cross country meet for grades 6-8 and a cross country fun run for grades K-5 on Wednesday, September 26th.  There is no fee or need to register for the run.   Mr. Lehman is asking that your child(ren) sign up on the sign-up sheet that is located on the table in the entryway so that he has an idea of who to look for that day.  Even if you don’t sign up, you can still run.  Just be sure to find Mr. Lehman who will be standing by the tennis courts.   All students that run that day will get a Dilly Bar as a
reward for their hard work and will get their Dilly Bar the following day.  The times and lengths of the races are as follows:
Grade 6-8 (1.5 miles) @ 4:15  
Grade 5(1 Mile) @ 4:30   
Grade 4(1/2 mile) @4:45
Grade 3(1/2 mile) @4:55

Grade 1(1/4 mile) @5:10
Kindergarten (1/8 mile) @ 5:15
Piano Lessons:   Piano lessons are being offered during the school day on Thursday afternoons by Julie Jorgensen.  Piano lessons are 30 minutes long. I will do my best to schedule these lessons during times that the student has free time so they don’t miss class time.  Piano lessons can also be scheduled in the evening at Julie’s home in Fond du Lac if you aren’t interested in lessons at school. Lessons are $10 each. Call Julie at 920-517-1839 to sign up and get more information.  – Julie Jorgensen
Hot Lunch Helpers:  We’re looking for more help serving hot lunch this school year.  If you’re able to volunteer a time or two a month, please sign up on the information table or contact Katie Lehman. 
Tdap Booster:  6th grade students need to have a Tdap booster and their second varicella vaccine to keep their immunization records up to date.  Please contact the school office of the date your child received their booster so school records can be kept up to date.
Girl Pioneers:  We started off making shut-in cards like usual, then we made and decorated our own name tags.  Our devotion was about that God is the reason we have freedom and are able to worship God publicly.  We learned more about 9-11.  We learned things about the American flag and how to fold the flag.  Finally we made veteran cards then ate a delicious snack.  –Kalista Ziemer
