Forensics Volunteers

Week of February 3
The forensic season for the 5th & 6th graders is around the corner!  The students are being introduced to forensics in class with Mrs. Rindfleisch.  Since this is their first or second experience with forensics, it is important for them to have coaching and practice.  Therefore, I’m looking for 7 enthusiastic volunteers who like to hang out with 5th & 6th graders.  You need to be willing to help the students practice by listening to their selections and offering feedback. This would take place during the school day for 4 or 5 weeks starting the week of February 3 thru March 9. Can you offer 30 minutes, 45 minutes, 1 hour or more of your time per week to help the students? You can pick the time of day that works for you after 9am.  I need 7 awesome volunteers! Please contact Mrs. Petersen (  if you are able to help support our students in this way.  Thanks!

Serving Together 1st Semester Mission Projects

Our first semester mission projects were supporting the WISCO mission trip to Antigua and the Christmas Store at St. Marcus.  

Throughout the semester, we collected school supplies that were sent to St. John’s Lutheran School in Antigua.  These items were greatly appreciated by the children who often come to school without the basic school supplies.  Our offerings given in church totaled just over $1,500 and it helped defray the cost of shipping.

Our Christmas collection for the St. Marcus Christmas Store included about $500 and many items for the store.  The children who were able to select an item for their loved ones were very thankful for the generosity of the families at St. John’s. 

May God continue to bless our mission efforts.

School Closing Information

School Closings for weather is 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.
