CHAPEL


This quarter's offerings will be designated to RODS (Racing for Orphans with Down Syndrome). To learn more about RODS, click here. Please help us teach our students the principles of good stewardship and the joy of giving by talking with them about their offering for each Wednesday morning Chapel. Don’t forget, parents are welcome every Wednesday morning to join us.

 

AM DROP OFF


Due to safety, at morning drop off if you are leaving your vehicle, please park in the south (front along Southeastern) lot and walk along the sidewalk as opposed to parking in the west lot and crossing the car line drop off traffic. Otherwise please remain in your vehicle and use the car line drop off. Please note the car line drop off is for quick drop off. If you need to get out of your vehicle to assist your child, please park in the south lot. Thank you for your cooperation in adhering to this procedure.

OH ME! OH MY! OH NEHEMIAH!


Come and see the return of the Israelites after their Babylonian captivity as they rebuild the wall! Led by Grades 1 - 4, you will enjoy this fresh view of Nehemiah as he leads God's people with prayer and dedication. The performance is this Thursday, October 4th, at 7:00 p.m. in The Dwelling Place.


CONFIRMATION CLASS


Most people think of worship as an hour you spend in church on Sunday morning. Lutherans understand it as something more, The Divine Service where God comes to His people through Word and Sacrament. The second session of Confirmation 360 for 7th-8th graders is all about worship, what it is, why we do it, and why we need to be there. Please join us on October 7th from 4-5:30 pm.


PARENT TEACHER CONFERENCES


Conferences for Pre-School through Grade 4 are scheduled for after school on Wed., Oct. 10 and Thurs., Oct. 11. NOTE: Instead of the traditional Parent-teacher conferences that will be used in our lower grades, grades 5-8 have transitioned to a different system. The system in place now allows teachers to request a conference with any student/parent at any time. These conferences can be utilized to discuss: spiritual life; exemplary performance; and may also include opportunities for improvement in spiritual, educational, behavioral or emotional areas. We know that we often speak to you at back-to-school events, at drop off or pick up, or via Fast Direct. We will continue to touch base if there is an issue that needs to be dealt with in a time-sensitive or serious manner.
As always, if you would like to meet with a middle school teacher, please contact them directly to schedule a meeting.


VISION AND HEARING SCREENINGS


Vision screenings for grades 1, 3, 5 & 8 as well as hearing screenings for grades 1, 4 & 7 will be conducted by the Marion County Health Department on Thursday, Oct. 11th and Friday, Oct. 12th.
