Isaiah 40:31 “…but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles;…”
Issue No. 18 January 21, 2021
A short week this week, as we were off Monday for Martin Luther King Jr. Day, and as Friday, the end of the second marking period, has an 11:30 A.M. dismissal. Grades do indeed close Friday, and we should be able to send report cards home next Tuesday. As always, please sign them and have your children return them to school by the end of next week.
Next week is also National Lutheran Schools Week. While modified somewhat due to Covid restrictions, the week still promises to be quite different from the average school week…and a lot of fun for all. The week annually celebrates the paramount role that education has always played within the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. Beginning in 1847, when 12 LCMS churches first sponsored 19 schools, the LCMS now operates 1127 early childhood centers, 778 elementary schools, 87 high schools, 10 universities, and two seminaries, educating more than 180,000 students nationwide. And that doesn’t include the many Lutheran schools in other countries. We are indeed proud of the LCMS commitment to providing a quality education within a loving and caring Christian environment. Should the opportunity arise, please take a moment to thank your child’s teacher for his/her commitment to your child. It would mean a lot to these tirelessly dedicated women and men.
While winter has not yet been too unkind, take heart: just 58 more days until Spring! Have a blessed week!
