One More Week to Order Your Wreath!
End of Day Dismissal
Classrooms will now be dismissed separately one after another when called to go meet their parents/guardians waiting in line. If you are a parent who has children in multiple classrooms, please wait in line for the next group to exit the building.
Morning Temperature Checking
When checking students' temperatures during morning arrival, our thermometers are reading abnormally high temperatures due to winter hats and vehicles' heating systems. A second temperature check once students are out of the vehicle has helped, but that also slows the drop-off process. To help expedite this procedure, please have your child remove any headgear before entering the parking lot. Once the temperature is taken and the clear sign is given, the child can put the headgear back on.
Outside Recess Volunteers Needed
We are looking for helpers Monday-Friday from 11:30 a.m.- 1:05 p.m. (4 recess periods since classrooms are separated) for outside recess. Volunteers will be particularly helpful once cold weather arrives and children need assistance from classroom teachers as they dress in their winter gear. As a recess helper, your outdoor supervision will allow children to go outside once they're dressed. We're hoping to set a recess volunteer schedule now so that everyone gets familiar with this year's routines before the cold weather comes. As in the past, a $5/day credit can be applied to your family's account. Please let Mr. Lustila or the school office know if you are willing to help. Thank you!
Scrip Gift Cards
Did you know St. Paul sells gift cards to many places in the Tri City area like Meijer, Walmart (which can be used at Sam's), Dick's, Cabela's, Speedway, Kohl's, JCPenney, Joann Fabric, Cracker Barrel, Bob Evans, Red Lobster and so much more?!? These gift cards DO NOT cost you any extra money. Through Great Lakes Scrip, St. Paul purchases retailer gift cards at a discount (usually 3% - 13%). When you purchase a full value card, St. Paul will split the profits with any student of your choice at St. Paul or Valley Lutheran High School, to be used for balances on tuition, extended care, or lunch. Plus, it is an easy way to give money back to St. Paul without costing you anything. Please contact the school office to see what cards are in stock and to arrange payment (cash or check) and pick up.
Lifetouch + Shutterfly = Fundraiser for St. Paul
Attention Shutterfly shoppers! Please use this link to place your orders. 8% of all sales will be donated to St. Paul. Since our school photos will be taken by Lifetouch, you can order personalized Shutterfly gifts using your child's school photo. What a great way to earn money for the school!
Bring in $1.00 or $5.00 or more!
Saving Stamps from Church Extension Fund (CEF) are available to purchase (from $1 to $5 to $10) every Monday morning at 7:30 -7:55 a.m. at St Paul Lutheran School!
Hope to see you soon.
