Safety Concerns
Parents: please remember to keep a special eye on young ones during release times. Our parking lot and on-campus roadways are busy [and dangerous] places. Please also be sure to keep your children near you when inside the building. Finally, climbing trees can be a fun childhood activity--at home. Please do not allow children to climb trees at school. Our concern is for your child's safety while on our campus. Thank you for partnering with us in this endeavor!
Spirit Day is Next Monday
Our school's first monthly Spirit Day (the first Monday school day each month), is just around the corner--get your Eagle gear and earn treats for your class. From T-shirts to jackets to polos to sweatshirts to blankets and hats…there’s something for everyone! Be sure to check out the new items that have been added this year! The class with the highest percentage of students in spirit wear or wearing blue and white each Spirit Day earns a sweet treat from our Eagles Booster Club!  Our first Spirit Day is Monday, Sep. 9 .

Orders are due Fri., Sep. 20. Once orders are placed, they will be delivered to the school and sent home with your student(s). If items have been ordered as gifts, please add this information in the notes area of the order and those items will be held in the school office for parent pickup.

Sunday School Begins Sep. 8, 9:30 AM
Immanuel's Sunday School curriculum is called DIG IN and was developed by Group Publishing, Inc. The curriculum provides creative, multi-sensory teaching that immerses your kids in deep Bible learning, helping them to know Jesus personally and grow in relationship with Him. Check out a brief overview of the curriculum below.
September Chapel Offerings
Our Chapel offerings for the month of September will go to Walcamp Outdoor Ministries, a Lutheran camp in Kingston, Illinois. We are also collecting the following items for Walcamp during the month of September: paper plates, paper towels, one-gallon freezer bags, 9 volt batteries, and plastic cutlery. There will be a labeled bin in the school entry way where the items can be placed. To learn more about Walcamp, visit walcamp.org .
Monthly Prayer Gathering
Second Sat. Prayer Gathering, Sep. 14, 9:30-10:30 AM, in the chapel
From the beginning, Christians have gathered to pray together ( Acts 4:24 12:5 21:5 ). Prayer
meetings are valuable for our church and for those who participate. We know prayer works because we have a God who declares, “Talk to me and I’ll listen.” Through our prayers, especially with one another, we are demonstrating and validating our shared faith. Please come to this gathering, participate in communal prayer, and develop a growing intimacy with God.
Requesting: Pool Noodles
Immanuel Lutheran School's theater department is looking for pool noodles to use in constructing set decorations for next spring's musical, The Little Mermaid, Jr. Please bring noodle donations to the school office. Thanks!
