School News: January 23, 2018


This week, we join Lutheran schools across the country to celebrate National Lutheran Schools Week. This ministry of Christian education reaches close to 250,000 children in Lutheran elementary schools, high schools, early childhood centers, and day care ministries. We will also join thousands of others as we participate in an online mission trip to Cambodia sponsored by Lutheran Hour Ministries.
St. John Lutheran Church and School has offered Christian school education for over 160 years, and we praise God for all of the children and families that have been blessed in our classrooms.
     Please join us in thanking the members of St John, who have supported this important work for many years. May God grant us many more years with His children.


Don’t forget to join us in our celebration of Lutheran Schools Week. Wednesday: Cambodia Day Red tops (K, 2, 4, and 7) Blue Tops (1,3, 5, and 6 grades) White tops (8th grade), Thursday: Camouflage Day, and Friday: Comradery Day. On Wednesday, we will have a Yo-Yo assembly. The week will end with the Varsity Girls Basketball Tournament right here at St. John. Come out and support your Lady Eagles on Friday evening at 4:30 and Saturday.

Our Reserve and Varsity Lady Eagles battled the Greenwood Homeschool team last night. Tonight, our girls battle the Blaze at home. The Reserve begins play at 5 pm and the Varsity play at 6. Join us as we celebrate our 8th graders. On Thursday night, our boys travel to Calvary to face the Knights. The Reserve game begins at 5pm and the Varsity will play after. Our Varsity Girls will be hosting a tournament here this weekend. Come join us for our first game on Friday night at 4:30.

There are plenty of opportunities to help make the tournament run smoothly by volunteering. Many hands make light work. Sign up here.

You can support St John by submitting your Box Tops, and this month is a great time to do it. All class rooms have envelopes for submission. The class with the most box tops will win a class party in February. Envelopes will be in each class to collect all box tops and sheets. The school just received a check for $219.90 after our last submission.
