St. Patrick’s Day Parade
Sign up today! Sunday, March 15 at 2 p.m. St. Paul will participate in Bay City's St. Patrick's Day Parade. Join the fun! Very few spots remain for children riding on the float. Older children may walk with their parent. Participating families are encouraged to either donate a few dollars or a few bags of candy to distribute at the parade. A waiver must be signed prior to the event. Contact Kristen Glasser at 989-529-2962 to participate.

Auction will be held in the school gym. 65” smart tv, cabin rentals, quilts, Epson printer, a Traverse City wine tour and tasting, cornhole games, and many, many more items up for bid. Come for supper-stay for the fun!
Registration Is Open For The 2020-2021 School Year
Congregation members and current school families may now enroll for the 2020-2021 school year! Registration will open to the community on March 1, 2020. A $75 preschool registration fee will reserve your child’s spot for next year. Information and enrollment forms are available in the school office.

Scrip Gift Cards
Did you know St Paul sells gift cards to many places in the Tri City area like Meijers, Walmart (which can be used at Sams), Dicks, Cabela's, Speedway, Kohls, JCPenneys, Joann Fabric, Cracker Barrel, Bob Evans, Red Lobster, and so much more?!? These gift cards DO NOT cost you any extra money. How it works is St Paul earns a percentage from each card that we sell. It is an easy way to give money back to St Paul without costing you anything. Scrip cards are available at school all day Monday-Thursday and until 1pm on Fridays.

A Message from Miss Stanley
After prayerful consideration, I have decided to turn down the call to Manistee and continue serving you here at St. Paul. I thank you for all your prayers and kinds words as I was deciding. Blessings, Lisa Stanley
