2020-2021 School Theme Verse & Song
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
Jeremiah 29:11 ESV

Lord Jesus Christ our Lord you died
and rose to save us all,
Stay with us now that you may guide
our learning at St. Paul.
Arrival at School
Thank you to all our families for your cooperation and patience as we begin implementing our new drop-off and pick-up procedures!

For those students who arrive early (7:00-7:45 a.m.) and spend a bit of time in the gym, we encourage them to bring a quiet activity to occupy their time in the bleachers. Perhaps a book to read or even a coloring book (along with a few of your own coloring supplies in your bookbag) would provide a good use of their time.

We hope to see you on Sept. 12th!
Sunday School Registration
A new school year has begun! Now we look forward to Sunday School kicking off on September 13, 9:15 a.m. – 10:15 a.m. We are currently establishing new policies and procedures in an effort to keep children and Sunday School teachers healthy and safe. It’s the goal of the Sunday School program to provide a foundation upon which children and youth will build a lasting relationship with Jesus. Children, preschool through 8th grade, are welcome and encouraged to come. If you are interested in our Sunday School program, please register below:
Saving Stamp Program
The Michigan District of the Lutheran Church offers a wonderful savings program for children! “Kids Can Bee Super Savers”! This is a savings and stewardship program for children. 
Make Cents for Kids! Money has a way of slipping through little fingers in no time at all, doesn’t it? That’s why it is so important that we teach our children about Godly stewardship at an early age.
When children buy Saving Stamps from Church Extension Fund (CEF) they quickly learn just how much fun and rewarding it can be to save! When they buy CEF Saving Stamps, they help build a church or school for other kids! They’re also growing a savings plan for themselves.
Your child can purchase saving stamps (from $1 to $10 to $50) every Monday morning at 7:30 -7:55 a.m. beginning September 14, at St Paul Lutheran School!
Hope to see you soon.
Mrs. Luella Britton, Church Extension Representative

Wildcat Spiritwear Online Store

Fall Soccer
The principals and athletic directors of the local area Lutheran schools have decided to postpone the fall soccer season until the coming spring. We have not yet set dates for the spring season. - Mr. Lustila
Our Mission Statement
