Noel House is an opportunity for your child to do some Christmas shopping for mom and dad and siblings. Most gifts range from $1-$5. A NOEL HOUSE envelope will be sent home with the students THIS WEEK that will help our volunteers know your child’s shopping list and funds. There are no online payments this year, cash or check only.
PTL NEEDS YOUR HELP!!!!
We need volunteers to help with the Noel House Christmas shop on December 17 & 18th. We need people to help the younger kids select gifts for their parents, grandparents and siblings. If you can help please contact: Anita Peterson 317-506-3240 or sign up HERE.
TEACHER COOKIE EXCHANGE AND
PTL SPONSORED LUNCH
Put on your aprons and start baking. We would like to do something special for the staff at St. John Lutheran this Christmas Season, and we need your help to make this possible. On Thurs., Dec. 20, the PTL is sponsoring a lunch for all of the teachers. We would also like to have a cookie event for the staff members and fill the workroom with plates of homemade goodies. Then, each staff member will get a box and fill it with an assortment of goodies that they choose. (Items do not have to be homemade) Any questions please ask Michelle Smith 317-432-6057 or fast direct.
Sign up HERE to donate cookies or for the teacher lunch.
