Bring In, Build Up and Send Out Disciples for Jesus Christ
FROM THE PRINCIPAL'S DESK
Hello Grace Family!

The second week of May is in the books. With everything going on this month, making it to the end of each week feels like an accomplishment :). Thank you to everyone who put in the work to make Grandparents Day and Track Day a success.

The next items on the docket are the 4th Annual Titan Toss this Sunday (spots are still available to participate, or just come and grab lunch while you cheer on your favorite team), followed by the Wind Symphony Concert Monday evening (7PM) with a special Tuesday morning performance for the students, Titans Soccer Night on Thursday (4:30 and 6PM), and 5/6 Titan for a Day along with the Prism Concert on Friday.

A copy of last week's musical Of Mice and Mozart is available online for viewing/sharing with family and friends - Youtube Link

We have our Graduation Service and Awards Night coming up on Thursday, May 26th at 6:30PM. On this evening we will recognize our graduates along with all of the achievements of our students. We will also celebrate the retirement of Mrs. Bame and Mrs. Kenyon along with the change in call for Mr. Raith. We would love for you all to join us for this special event.

I am keeping the Upcoming List of Events in the newsletter for easy reference. Please note that individual classroom field trips do not appear on this list. If you have questions about any of these upcoming events, please contact the school office.



Looking forward to another awesome week serving you and your child!

Blessings,

Mr. Beilke

Summer Camp News

Due to the return of all campers from last summer, all of the available spaces were filled before an advertisement for it was made. I did not realize that there were people waiting to hear about it so that they could put in their applications. If you would still like your name to be put on the waiting list, you can email me at thorsona@gracestjoseph.org. Thank you for your understanding.

Dear Parents of Future Middle School Athletes, 

Welcome to Michigan Lutheran Middle School Sports! It is that time of the year when we have to start the registration process for middle school sports for next school year. The Titan Middle School program offers sporting activities that many 6-8 graders might not have offered at your school. These activities include: 6-8 boys' and girls' strength and conditioning, 6-8 grade girls' volleyball, 6-8 grade girls' soccer, 6-8 grade boys' basketball, 6-8 grade boy's soccer and 7-8 grade football. We thank Michigan Lutheran High School for making this possible for our children in middle school.  

Here is the link you can use to register your son/daughter to play middle school sports for the 2022-2023 Michigan Lutheran Titan Program: MS Sports Registration Link
Attached is the physical form that every athlete will need to have filled out in order to participate in the program. We cannot let your son or daughter practice or play without a completed physical. We are asking that the registration form along with the fees be turned in by June 30. Doing so will get you a discounted price. The price will go up for any athlete signed up after June 30. It is important to register as soon as possible so that schedules can be produced to fit the number of participants. Checks can be made payable to MLHS and mailed to me at this address: Grace Lutheran School Attn: Kevin Lemke, 404 East Glenlord Rd, St. Joseph, MI 49085. Thanks for your help! Go Titans!
