Mission Offering: The first semester mission offering has been designated for Mason Abraham.  Mason is a fellow member of St. Paul’s who is battling a tumor on his optic nerve.  Mission offering last week was $62.36.  Mission offering for the semester is $648.84.
Important Update:  School Schedule Change:  Earlier this school year, our Board of Christian Education requested input from our school families regarding a potential school day schedule change.  Thank you for the feedback you provided!  The Board studied your responses at its October meeting and voted to change the daily schedule beginning in our second semester, pending verification from Johnson Bussing Company that their transportation schedule would not change over the course of the year.  After receiving Johnson's confirmation, the Board decided at their November meeting to make the schedule change official, beginning on the first day of our third quarter.  
Until then, our daily schedule will remain unaltered:  8:30 A.M.- 3:15 P.M..  Drop off and pick up schedules and procedures, along with our extended care program schedules, will also remain unchanged through the end of the second quarter.  
On Monday, January 13, 2020, our daily schedule will be extended.  Our new hours will be 8:30 A.M. - 3:30 P.M.  Our morning drop off procedures will remain unchanged, as will our extended care program.  In the afternoons, the general pick-up window will be from 3:30-3:45.  Extended care will still conclude at 5:15.  
Again, our Board thanks you for your input which led its deliberations on this schedule change, and we hope that all families will have sufficient time to make necessary adjustments.
Basketball Schedules:  Basketball schedules went home with our student athletes this week.  If you haven't seen it yet, please check with your children as they should have one.  Thank you! 
Basketball Sign-up:  Below you will find the signup link for the upcoming basketball season. This sign-up is for anyone in our St. Paul's family if they would like to help, even if you don't have someone playing.  If you do have a player on either our C, B, or A teams, please be reminded that you are required to help. So please sign-up.  Thank you to those who have already signed up and thank you in advance to those who will be signing up in the next few days.  Your help is greatly appreciated and goes a long way in ensuring a successful basketball season.  If you have any questions, please speak with Mr. Lehman.  God Bless! 
Regular Season-  
Piano Lessons:  Piano lessons are being offered during the school day in the afternoon and after school by Julie Jorgensen.  Students in Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade will have lesson during lunch recess or after school. Students in 3rd-8th grade will be during the school day. I will do my best to schedule these lessons during times 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. Piano lessons are 30 minutes long. Lessons are $10 each. Call Julie at 920-517-1839 to sign up and get more information.  – Julie Jorgensen
