On Tuesday night, our congregation called Mr. Nathan Schultz to be the principal of St. John’s in 2020.  Mr. Schultz is 37 years old and is currently serving in Hartford, WI as a vice-principal in our synod’s Principal Training Program.  He concludes that program this spring having earned his second master’s degree.  He is married and has three school aged children.  He has 14 years’ experience as a teacher/administrator.  Please include Mr. Schultz in your prayers.  Ask the Lord to meet his needs and ours through this call.

     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.  We have a couple of Ruby Tuesday gift cards for $15 each 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. 

     Tomorrow 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.

     It’s time for Bedtime Blessings!!  Click Here for more information.

     THERE ARE TWO KINDS OF CONFERENCES COMING UP!  DON’T GET CONFUSED.   This week you received a request to schedule a Parent-Teacher Conference for the first week of November. Please help us schedule your conference at a time that is most convenient for you.  We do want to meet with every parent!  The basis of the conferences will be the 1st Quarter report card that will come out Thursday, Oct. 31st and the information from the MAP testing for the students in grades 2-8.  Upper grade parents, you may request multiple teachers if you have concerns for a teacher other than the home room teacher, but you are not required to meet with each teacher. 

     Next Thursday and Friday (Oct. 25,26) are the days of State Teacher’s Conference so remember there is no school those days.  St. John’s Childcare will be open.

     Do you have some old shoes to get rid of?  YES, YOU DO!  Please stuff them in a plastic bag and drop them off in the box in the School Commons or by the Childcare entrance. 

Thank God for His Blessings,

~Mr. Uecker~
