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
Early Pick-Up Procedures

Many Thanks to Our School Custodians!
Thank You Dale Jezowski
We would like to thank Dale Jezowski for the excellent job in doing custodial work in and around the school grounds for the last 18 months. Dale performed his tasks in a timely and dedicated manner! Dale has chosen to pursue another adventure, we wish him the best and may God bless him as he moves forward.

Thank You Lydia Schultz
St. Paul would also like to thank Lydia for working with Dale during her senior year of high school. She helped Dale out in cleaning the inside of the building. She often came in the early hours of the morning before she headed off to school. She is now attending Concordia University in Seward, Nebraska and is pursuing a career in church work as a Deaconess! Blessings on your endeavor Lydia!

Welcome David Dent, Jr.
St. Paul would like to welcome David as he takes over the duties of custodian here at school. He’s very conscientious in his effort to ensure the safe cleaning protocols required here at school during the pandemic. May God bless him in his efforts as we help to support him in all that he does around the building. 

Welcome Isabel Warren
We welcome Isabel as she takes over the cleaning responsibilities from Lydia Schultz. Isabel is currently a Valley Lutheran High School senior and often performs in drama skits and plays put on by Valley. We ask that God be with her throughout the year as she takes on the cleaning duties during her senior year of high school.
