REMINDERS for the week of March 9
In Our Prayers Dr. Vernon Neubert, St. Luke alumnus and benefactor recently passed away at his home in State College, PA. Dr. Neubert was born and raised in Cabot at St. Luke and many family ties remain here. He established the Willis F. Follstaedt Memorial College Scholarship in memory of his childhood friend and classmate, who was the only member of St. Luke Lutheran Church to give his life in service of his country during World War II. Read more about Willis and the scholarship at https://www.school.stlukecabot.org/willis-follstaedt. Dr. Neubert will be laid to rest in Worthington later this week. A brief biography of his life can be viewed at https://www.daughenbaughfuneralhome.com/memorials/vernon-neubert/4125969/index.php. Please keep his friends and family in your prayers.

2020-21 EITC Scholarships The Community Foundation Serving the Heart of Western Pennsylvania is providing scholarships through EITC funds to qualified families in Pre-K-Grade 8. The deadline to apply is July 15. Applications are available at https://servingtheheart.org/pre-k-12-tuition-assistance/ or in the school office.
Financial Aid Financial aid is available to those who qualify and is administered through the Board of Parish Education. It is our hope that no one be denied a Christian education due to the lack of funds. However, financial aid is not to be considered a scholarship, but rather should be sought only by those in significant financial need. If you are planning to apply for financial aid for the 2020-2021 school year, be sure to start the process early as per our financial aid policy, which was enclosed with your re-enrollment letter. The policy is also available in the school office and on our website. In order to be considered for aid, you must follow the process as outlined. The deadline to apply for current families is April 30, 2020.
