Thank you to all those who helped to prepare for and run our booth at Kids’ Day on Saturday!
Practices for Track (boys and girls, grades 4-8) continue this Tuesday, April 22nd and Thursday, April 24th.
Practice will be from 4-5:30 p.m. at Cuddy Family Park (by the Loussac Library).
          The Faith Invitational Track meet is scheduled for Saturday, April 26th at Wendler Middle School. Track team members should be at the Wendler track by 9:00 a.m. to warm up. PARENTS AND FRIENDS: WE NEED VOLUNTEERS TO HELP RUN THE EVENTS AND SCORING. Please help if you can. See Mr. Zarnstorff if you are available to help us out.
          The ACSAA State Meet is scheduled for Saturday, May 3rd.
Are you interested in our Preschool or Kindergarten programs? Do you have family or friends that might be? This week there will be several opportunities to see what Faith Lutheran early childhood programs have to offer.
On Wednesday, April 23rd from 4:00-5:30 p.m. Mrs. Schneck will hold a Kindergarten Roundup Open House, and Miss Wendland will be holding two Preschool Open House opportunities on  Wednesday, April 23rd  from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. and on Saturday, April 26th from 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon.  Parents interested in our programs can bring their children in to experience the classrooms firsthand, find out about the curriculum, and get their questions answered. 
We are gearing up for our school musical,  Are We There Yet  , coming up on May 2nd. (See the attached flyer.) There will be a sets, costumes, and props work night this Thursday, April 24th from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. for any parents and friends available to help us out. Any assistance you can give us is appreciated. Please contact Mrs. Schneck if you are able to help.
A costuming note went home last Thursday. Students need to bring $2 for their t-shirt if they have not already done so. Also, the shorts worn under their costumes should be black. The sashes can be any color (something that goes with their shirt). See Mrs. Schneck if you have any questions.
There will be a work day at Camp Luther Alaska in Wasilla this Saturday, April 26th. Do your children and family make use of Camp Luther’s programs and facilities? This is a great opportunity to help us out by giving back. Both “skilled” and “unskilled” labor is needed. We have some roof and step repair that is especially urgent. Can you give us a hand? Please contact Fred or Stacey Koenig if you would like to help out.
The Junior Choir will be singing at King of Kings in Wasilla this Sunday, April 27th at their 10:30 a.m. service. Students should be at the church by 10:10 a.m. to prepare. If your child will need a ride, please contact Mrs. Schneck.
Following the service the Junior Choir will be heading out to Camp Luther for a picnic before returning to Anchorage. Parents and family are welcome to join the picnic. Students that are riding with Mrs. Schneck will return to Faith around 1:30 p.m.
Toddler Time is an hour of educational activities, structured play and a snack for children ages 0-5 and their caregivers. Toddler Time meets on Wednesdays from 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. in the Faith fellowship hall. There will also be a special Saturday Toddler Time this Saturday, April 26th from 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. For more information please contact Mrs. Cara Ewings at 792-9388.
