Mission Statement: We will prepare our students to be responsible members of the Christian community, strong in faith and equipped with the knowledge and skill to live as powerful, forgiven witnesses of Christ and his love.

Our theme for this year is:

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today, and forever.

~Hebrews 13:8


From the Principal:

Greetings,

Welcome to December. The snow flurries have been showing up on a regular basis. They always bring a smile to the children’s faces (and that next question - do you think we will cancel school?). Christmas program practice has been going well. The students are learning their parts and the words to the songs. Things are beginning to fall into place. The rooms and hallways are beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Stay warm and well.

Greetings in the name of Christ,

Mrs. Boester

Thank you to everyone who helped with and attended our Family Reading Night this past week. Happy Birthday Illinois!


Congratulations to Blake Hanke for his success at the Elks Hoop Shoot! He scored 21 out of 25 Free throws and gets to move on to the next level. Way to go, Blake!

Give Thanks unto the Lord, for He is good, His love endureth forever. Psalm 136:1


WE FOSTER EDUCATION

Schools in The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod serve children in early childhood programs through grade 12 in over 2,000 schools nationwide and 3 schools internationally. Additionally, 10 colleges and universities operate to serve post secondary and graduate students across the nation.


School Chapel Mission: During November and December, we are supporting our Christmas family. Each year, Lutheran Church and Family Services provides a family for us to bless. This is a family that is struggling in many different ways and needs our help. We collect offerings through these two months and then are able to provide this family with a Christmas blessing they would not otherwise have. Thank you for supporting our mission!

Music for Trinity Hoffman!

You can make a difference! Mr. Harding will continue to offer band lessons twice a week to our students. In addition, we are beginning a Junior Choir program once again. You can help support these programs. Please prayerfully consider sponsoring a band student at the rate of $125 per student per semester or the Junior Choir at the rate of $300 per semester. This is a wonderful opportunity for our students at a time when many schools are cutting back on their fine arts programs. Donations will be accepted at any time.
