REMINDERS for the week of May 10

Teacher Appreciation  Week  Thank you to our wonderful PTL for a week full of treats and surprises!  What a blessing to us all to have such caring school families and students!  We are very grateful for all your support and prayers throughout the year.


7th & 8th Class Trip   We are planning a great day trip to Camp Lutherlyn near Prospect to experience a customized Environmental Education Program on Friday, May 14.  Important info is coming home today that requires  your attention—a Covid-19 release form and Lutherlyn parent note with rules and guidelines.  The day should be an adventure full of hands-on learning, fun, and a few surprises!  Return your permission slip by Wednesday, May 12.


2021-22 School Calendar   For your planning purposes, attached is next year’s school calendar which was approved by School Board at their May meeting last week. 


Justice at St. Luke  One of Butler County’s newest officers came to visit our school today.  Justice, a 2-year-old German wirehaired pointer with handler Sgt. Harry Callithen showed the students how together they perform their special duties.  Justice is trained to be a sniffing and tracking dog and is used to detect drugs and assist in cases of missing persons.  We had fun meeting Justice and Sgt. Callithen, and learned a lot, too!


Confirmation Class of 2021   Celebrating the rite of confirmation at St. Luke this Saturday evening are 8th graders Amelia Crosby, Dylan Edwards, and Emme Mrozek.  They will stand with their class of seven confirmands and profess their faith as they Identify themselves as unique and special parts of the body of Christ, as Lutherans, and members of St. Luke Church.  Congratulations and God’s blessings to you on this next step in your journey of faith.
