Good morning. I hope that all our mothers had a wonderful day this past Sunday. I know that Mrs. Lastowski sure did. She enjoyed visits from our three children and four grandchildren, including one via Facetime from Montana (little Elaina just turned four months).
Friday night was really special. Our first evening Education Fair in three years. The place was PACKED. It was so good to see so many of you. There were plenty of smiles all around.
FINALLY, the weather has turned to warmth, just in time for our several planned outdoor activities over these final four weeks. And, while some hearty souls have worn shorts already, I am sure that trend will only increase. Please remember, no cut-offs or otherwise altered shorts.
Tomorrow evening at 6:30 is our Spring Choir Concert. Unlike the Christmas Program, this event features only the choir, and includes singing (of course), Scripture reading, and instrumental numbers, in a program arranged by our Choir Director, Mrs. Lacy Hines. All are welcome.
Finally, if you have not yet returned your registration packet for next school year, PLEASE send it in as soon as possible. A couple of classes are nearing capacity, and I want to make sure that we are able to accommodate our returning students.
Enjoy the warmer weather and have a great weekend.

Believe it or not, our bottles raise a pretty good sum for the Principal’s Fund, which is used for those extra things that pop up and/or are not budgeted for. In fact, bottle money helped pay for our current radio ad. The bottle ministry (hey, that’s what it is) originated with Mrs. Svetlana Kondybko a few years ago. Eighth grade mom Gabi Brin-Martin graciously took over the task this year, but, as her son, Luke, is graduating, we will need someone to agree to be “bottle person” for the coming year. Gabi is willing to show you the ropes before the end of the school year. Please call Chris or me if you could help with this.
The students really look forward to this special day! We would love to be able to provide a fun day on Friday, June 3rd! Field Day takes MANY parent volunteers to make this happen!
This year, field day will be for PreK-6th grade. The 7th & 8th grade classes will be going to Look Park instead – more information to follow.
If you are willing to volunteer for this event, please fill out the volunteer form that was sent home last week with the Messenger. Additional forms are available in the office. Please return the forms no later than May 13th so we can begin the planning. Thank you!
The 2021-2022 Yearbooks have arrived! Order forms are available in the office.
