Isaiah 40:31 "...but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.  They will soar on wings like eagles; ..."

Issue No.  10                                                                             November 7, 2019

From the Principal's Desk...

Great news!!  We're so grateful for all who have given money toward the matching fund for the additional playground renewal.  $550.00 has been given so far, making it $1,100.00 total. The matching fund goes up to $2,500. So, it's still open for donations!  At the same time we've met with Fairview Fencing to, hopefully, get the proper permit easily and begin the work the beginning of December.  This will be such a great safety feature for all the classes that will be using the parking lot this winter and early spring, but especially for grades 5-8 who use it every day, weather permitting.

Each school year at the end of the first, second, and third quarter we publicly recognize those students who have achieved Honor Roll (84% and above) and High Honor Roll (94% and above) in grades four through eight.  Next Wednesday, November 13th, at the end of Chapel they will be recognized and receive their certificates.  Everyone is welcome!!

Every year we want to help those who are in need, and so we give the children the opportunity to bring canned goods and non-perishable items for Kate's Kitchen.  At the beginning of Chapel on November 20th the students will place the items that they've brought before the altar in the church.  Thank you for participating in the opportunity to give!

Gently Used Toy Sale

First Lutheran Church and School is planning a used toy sale for Saturday, November 30th from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  During these difficult economic times, many families may find it a struggle to provide toys for their children at Christmas.  First Lutheran would like to meet this need by providing gently used toys at a very affordable cost.  This is an opportunity to donate items or shop for items.  This is the perfect time to go through your basement, attic, and closets, donate outgrown, unwanted, gently loved toys, and make Christmas merrier for someone else.  Tax deduction slips will be available for all donations.  Toys may be left in boxes marked toys.  Anyone interested in helping prepare the toys for the sale, helping the day of the sale, to arrange pick-up, or with questions contact Bonnie Bessette at 508-240-4294.  All proceeds will go into the Children's Fund at First Lutheran School which helps offset tuition costs for families in need.
