Greetings,

     TUESDAY NIGHT OCT. 15th CALL MEETING 6:30pm  Please plan to participate in this important meeting to call my replacement for next year.  There will be a discussion before the voting on who we should call and all are welcome to attend and speak.  We expect synod to supply about 5-6 choices based on the input from our Board of Education.   

     Would you open your house to an International Student for the second semester?  We have a male 7-8 grade student who has applied for whom we need housing.  He would arrive January 6th to start his studies here at St. John’s.  All expenses are covered by a monthly stipend of $900.  Students participate in after-school sports if your child does.  Please contact me for more information if you would consider this opportunity.

     Is the Fall Festival on you calendar?  Enter October 20th 3pm. for an afternoon of fun and fellowship.

     I want to encourage you to consider the Scrip Program.  Are you going to go to TGI Fridays at the stadium for a last look?  We have one card for $25 that we would like to sell. The scrip cards are available any time from the school office or send a check and we will get the card to you. 

     This is the season for playoffs.  Not only baseball but also, our Boy’s and Girl’s Cross-Country teams are in the Lutheran National competitions.  Last week the Girl’s won the Lutheran State meet taking six of the first ten places.  Congratulations to Emma Close (1st), Eva Kuehn (2nd), Ana Buske (3rd), Reina Ebeling (4th), Beth Langebartels (8th) and Emma Lindert (10th).  Our Soccer team is wrapping up a great year in their playoffs and our Volleyball teams are in the season ending tournaments.  Our students are having a great Fall sport season!

     Watch for the results of our Forensics teams the first week of November.

     Next week Friday, most of our school will be walking to Wisco to watch the Marching Band perform its routine for this year.  If you see 200 students, big kids paired with little kids, walking down 84th, honk your horn and give us a wave.

     One last date to get on your calendar, Oct. 23rd for Bedtime Blessings!!  Click Here for more information.

Thank God for His Blessings
