Greetings,

     Please put Nov. 26th on your calendar as the date that we will extend a call to find a new principal for next year.  Our congregation will meet at 6:30 pm and will also elect new officers for the next year.  Please pray that God might grant us leadership through this call into the future of St. John’s educational ministry. 

     Are your preparations for Thanksgiving starting to build?  Please consider a special pause daily at bedtime for a “thank you” prayer for your children, and then again for yourself.  Need a reminder?  Post Its work great.

     Did you receive our text?  You may need to go to the app and tell it to allow the message to come to your display.  If you did not receive the text, please call/email the office for assistance.  This is the additional way we will notify you of school closings or significant school activities.  So far, about 160 people have signed up for the text service.  We would expect about 200 if each family had at least one phone synced up.

     School Closings for weather are different this year!!!!!  We will not always close when MPS or WISCO close.  When cold weather causes the closings, we may choose to stay open.  We have no students standing in the cold waiting for buses, so we have changed our past practice.  We will send emails, announce on TV, and now also we will text school closings.

      Will you be shopping Kohl’s or Target on Black Friday?  Please consider using school scrip cards for the boost it gives our program.

     This weekend we start the Basketball season.  Students and parents, enjoy the opportunity to share your faith with students and parents of our companion schools and enjoy the competition.

Thank God for His Blessings,

~Mr. Uecker~
