Parent Connection Decemeber 8th Issue #17

Chapel Service
You are invited to join us for our weekly chapel service this Thursday, December 11th from 8:30 to 9:00 a.m. Our chapel service message will be presented by Pastor Oldfield. This week’s theme: Living for Jesus Trusting in God (Gideon).  Families and friends are invited to come join us in starting our day with the Lord.

If classes are cancelled due to weather conditions, announcements will be posted on our
as well as on our Faith Lutheran School Facebook page. PLEASE NOTE: WE DO NOT AUTOMATICALLY CLOSE WHEN ASD SCHOOLS CLOSE. If ASD is closed we may yet be open. Please call the school office or Mr. Schneck at 331-7761 if you are uncertain.

Calendar Correction
There was an error on the school year calendar distributed at the beginning of the school year. In February of 2015 the two days of for the Alaska Conference of Pastor and Teachers that was scheduled on the calendar for February 2 and 3 should instead be February 12 and 13. Again, we will be having school classes on February 2 and 3. There will be no school classes on February 12 and 13. My apologies for the error.

Grade 3-5 Field Trip
Grades 3-5 will be attending Alaska Junior Theater’s Otherwise Known as Sheila the Great at the Performing Arts Center on Friday, December 12th. Mr. Zarnstorff has two spots for chaperones available if any parents would like to join them. Please contact him if you are interested in attending with the class.

Advent Soup Supper and Worship
This Wednesday, December 10th, we invite you to join us for our midweek Advent service at 7:00 p.m.   There will be a soup supper in the fellowship hall prior to the service. The supper begins at 6:00 p.m.  We ask that you bring your favorite soup or salad to share. Bread or desserts are also welcome.  Don’t worry if you are unable to bring anything, come and join us anyways! We look forward to seeing you there.

Winter is here…
Please MAKE SURE that your child has the proper clothing for recess EVERY DAY:
·         a winter coat
·         hat
·         gloves
·         snow boots
Please check your child before they leave your home in the morning AND before they get out of the car to make sure they have everything they need.
Do you need winter clothing or have winter clothing that you no longer need?  A Winter Clothing Exchange is taking place in the fellowship hall from now until December 22nd. Please see the attached flyer for details.
We also have used uniform shirts, pants, and jumpers available in various sizes. They are in a box on the exchange table. Please feel free to help yourself.

Coming up in two weeks on Friday, December 19th is our school Christmas service, “Children of the Heavenly Father” presented at 6:30 p.m. in the recital hall at the UAA Fine Arts Building. This is a school function where the students will be presenting the service. All Faith students are expected to be in attendance. Plan to enjoy this special worship opportunity with your family!


Thank You! to those who organized, donated and assisted with Christmas for Kids and the PTF Sale and Basket Auction on Saturday. Thank you for being a blessing!

PTF is still wanting for opinions on new sport uniforms for the school.   What do you think would work best for the school?  Contact Sheila Lillo at the office or write a note expressing your ideas to send to school with your child.
