Parent Connection #35 - May 12, 2014

Special thanks on behalf of the school and church staff to all the school and church families and PTF members who blessed us with meals, treats and encouragement during Teacher Appreciation this last week. We thank God for supportive parents and others who are blessings to our school in so many ways. Thank you!

Please join us for our weekly chapel service this Thursday, May 15th, from 8:30 to 9:00 a.m. Begin your day with the students of Faith Lutheran as we worship our Lord together. This week Pastor Ewings will present a message from God’s Word in Luke 8:30 asking the question, “What’s in a Name?”

We still need some sports uniforms returned, both the teal and white and the black and white uniforms. Students who participated in sports this year are asked to get their uniforms back to Mr. Zarnstorff right away if they have not already done so.

The students of Mr. Schneck will be going on field trip to release their salmon and visit the municipal greenhouse and Alaska Museum of Natural History on Tuesday, May 13th. Students are asked to bring in their permission slips if they have not already done so, and to remember to dress for the weather and for walking, and bring money for lunch or a cold sack lunch that does not need to be microwaved.

There will be a PTF (Parents, Teachers, and Friends) meeting on Tuesday, May 13th at 6:30 p.m. The purpose of this meeting is to plan for the school end-of-year picnic and also to elect officers for the next 2014-2015 school year.

The students of Mr. Zarnstorff will be spending their lunch hour bird-watching at Potter’s Marsh on Wednesday, May 14th from 12:00-1:00 p.m. Students are asked to bring a lunch that does not need to be microwaved and binoculars if they have them available.

Following the 11:00 a.m. service on Sunday, May18th, the 8th grade graduating class will receive their diplomas. This year’s graduates are Chloe Robbert, Christian Bowers,
Jacob Henry, and Gideon Schneck
We ask God’s blessings on these students as they move on to high school.
Congratulations, Graduates!

The Students of FLS K-8 will be going to the Dome on Friday, May 16th for an Olympics / field afternoon from 12:00-3:00 p.m. We will be able to run in the field and play games and sports in their incredible facility, a welcome change from our asphalt parking lot.
The students will be divided into teams
school –wide and will be asked to wear their team color if possible. The upper grades will assign the teams and let the students know their team color.
Please sign and return the permission slip sent home last  Friday along with $5 if you have not already done so.

The students of Mrs. Zarnstorff (grades 1-2) will be running a lemonade stand next week Tuesday, May 20th from 3:15-3:45 p.m. at the school entrance. The proceeds from this sale will be given to Bean’s CafĂ©. The price for the lemonade will be a free-will donation.

Camp Luther and Faith PTF are allowing the teens to run our spring parking lot sale, which is now scheduled for Saturday, May 24th due to a conflict with our summer construction plans for the facility. Faith teens are asking for your donations to help them raise funds to help cover the cost of their attendance at the WELS International Youth Rally in June!
They are willing to pick up your gently used items as donations for the sale. Do you have junk to get rid of? They will take that too and gladly haul it away for a free-will donation. They may even be able to arrange some spring cleaning help for you. Contact Mr. Schneck at 331-7761 and he will arrange for some delightful and energetic teens to serve you.

Do you use a Fred Meyer card? Your purchases can help earn money for our school. Thirteen families have already raised $362 for our school! If you would like to join them, please visit to sign up. Thanks!
