1. Our students will return to school. The halls of our school building have been empty since March 16, and we are so excited to welcome our students back on August 26! Please especially keep our faculty, staff, and Board of Education members in your prayers as they continue to plan for the start of school and the best ways to keep our students safe in the midst of these uncertain times.
2. We will celebrate the retirement of our former principal, Mr. Scott Uecker. Due to the pandemic, we are only able to host a small gathering of faculty and staff to mark this occasion. However, we invite the congregation to wish Mr. Uecker the best with a card the weekend of August 8 & 9. Look for the box in the church narthex, drop off a card at the church or school office, or mail your card to the school office. May God bless you in your retirement, Mr. Uecker!
3. We will install two new teachers. Mr. Dan Markgraf (principal) and Miss Megan Bauer (4th grade teacher) will be installed in our 10:30 a.m. service on Sunday, August 23. We pray for God's richest blessings on Mr. Markgraf and Miss Bauer as they begin their ministry at St. John's!
