Y5-8th Grade All School Field Trip

Wednesday, June 1 is the all-school field trip for Y5’s-8th graders. We will leave by 8:30 a.m. and return to school by 3 p.m. We will board the Princess Wenonah at Wenonah Park (by the DoubleTree Hotel) to enjoy a 2-hour boat ride on Saginaw River. Then we will head to Monitor Township Park (4585 3 Mile Road between Midland and N. Union) for a picnic lunch and outdoor fun for the afternoon. The admission for students & chaperones has graciously been covered by PTO, along with 1 snack per student on the boat.  Seating on the boat is limited, so one parent per family and St. Paul Preschool siblings are invited to attend. 

Check Your Balances

Final charges for Hot Lunch and Extended Care will not be finalized until the last day of school, but all balances will need to be paid before report cards will be released. Check your family’s account at or contact Gretchen with any questions: Thank you!

Retirement Potluck for Mr. Lustila

Join our Wildcat family in the Fellowship Hall after late service on Sunday, June 12th for a Retirement Potluck honoring Mr. Lustila. Please bring a dish to pass. We will provide a cake, hot dogs, and a "Card Shower" basket to gather notes or gifts to thank Mr. Lustila for his faithful service. - St. Paul Board of Ed
