PLEASE KEEP THE CONFIRMANDS IN YOUR PRAYERS TONIGHT, THIS SATURDAY AND ALWAYS.

     Our international students have provided us a special honor this year.  Easter Sunday at the Sunrise Service Tony Chen was baptized, and this Saturday Peter Ma will be confirmed with our class.  Thank the Lord for this blessing to our outreach program through the work of Pastor Yu!

     Please reserve a seat and offer your help as we say “well done, good and faithful servant” to Mr. and Mrs. Allerheiligen as they step into retirement.  We hope you received information earlier. I want to encourage you to respond now for the benefit of those who are planning the event. Please click on the following link to rsvp: www.sjtosa.org/Retirement

     On Tuesday, the congregation extended a call to teach fifth grade next year to Brett Kriese, currently the principal at Pilgrim Lutheran School in Menomenee Falls.  Please keep him in your prayers, asking our Lord to guide Mr. Kriese in his consideration of both calls he now holds.

     Miss Treder continues to consider the call she recently received to teach 1st grade at St. Paul’s Franklin, WI.  Please take time from your schedule to encourage Miss Treder as she considers this call and where her talents will best build Christ’s church.  Pastor Schroeder is still considering his response to a call to Marshfield, WI.  Please keep both of these servants in your prayers. 

     We are currently enrolling International Students for next year and we need host families.  Would you host a student?  There are two opportunities: a 10 day visit in August after school starts, or, for the school year.  We are planning to host 6 students from China for 10 days.  The students are boys and girls in grades 6,7 or 8.  We are also planning to host 2 or 3 students for the whole year with our 7th or 8th grades classrooms.  The costs of hosting are reimbursed.  We need families to volunteer!  Please email me if you would like more information, scott.uecker@sjtosa.org

Childcare this summer?  Please go to childcare@sjtosa.org

     Have you put the school play on your calendar?  May 10th 3:30 or 6:30   We have contracted with a company to send two Actor’s Equity people to work with all our students in grades 3-5.  The company supplies costumes and staging/props for “The Wizard of Oz”.   Supper and games between the performances is planned. 

     We continue to have scrip cards for sale in the school office.  Will you need some for birthdays and thank you messages over the summer?  Please stop in and stock up.

~Enjoy the day~

     Also, on Tuesday, April 16th at 6:30pm we will again meet to consider calling someone as our 5th grade teacher.  This meeting may be a bit different, one of the options is also to go the synod assignment committee and ask for an MLC graduate.  Please plan to be there to participate in the discussion of how we might move forward.

Greetings,

Don’t miss the WLHS A Cappella Choir at Sunday worship this weekend.

    Mrs. and Mr. Leyrer returned the calls they had received to serve at Waterloo, WI.  They will continue to support our ministry here at St. John’s.  Pastor Schroeder continues to consider a call to serve at Marshfield, WI.  While he deliberates this new call please encourage him with your appreciation of his work at St. John’s and keep him in your prayers.  Also, we extended a call to Mrs. Laura Schultz to teach 5th grade next year.  Last week, I met with Mrs. Schultz and her husband to discuss this call and now we await her decision.  Again, please pray for God’s guidance for each of these church servants.

     We are currently enrolling International Students for next year and we need host families.  Would you host a student?  There are two opportunities: a 10 day visit in August after school starts, or, for the school year.  We are planning to host 6 students from China for 10 days.  The students are boys and girls in grades 6,7 or 8.  We are also planning to host 2 or 3 students for the whole year with our 7th or 8th grades classrooms.  Because next year’s 8th grade is a large class, we are considering using 7th grade as the host class.  The costs of hosting are reimbursed.  We need families to volunteer!  Please email me if you would like more information, scott.uecker@sjtosa.org

     The Penny Wars are over!!  The competition was a great success.  We had so much donated that even with the bank machines counting the coins, it took hours to determine the winners.  Whole bricks of pennies were donated!  8th grade donated the most money, but the other classes managed to cancel out their success and 1st grade won the war.  More information is included in the Chronicle.

    Information about preschool for next year can be emailed from the office or just give us a call.

      Taxes?  Federal ID number of St. John’s is 39-0986622.       

      In a related article in today’s Chronicle, you can read about the success of our basketball teams in the national competition at Valpo this last weekend.  Thanks to the coaches and parents who invest so much time and effort to allow our teams to use their talents in the name of our school and church. Thanks for your support of their fundraising efforts to cover the costs of attending.  We covered the costs of attending this tournament.

~Enjoy the day~
