The matches will take place at Lumen Christi. The Huskies will play Holy Rosary at 6:00 p.m. and Lumen at 7:00 p.m. Players should be there early as directed by their coaches.

This week, January 25-31 is National School Choice Week.
As a special event, Faith Lutheran School is hosting a Movie Night and Ice Cream Social on Friday, January 30th from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m.
While the children enjoy the Disney Classic, The Three Caballeros, the parents will view and have the opportunity to discuss
The Ticket, a new documentary film that addresses the question "What is school choice?"
 School choice is proliferating in the United States, fostering innovations in teaching and advancements in learning. It's based on a simple premise: No one educational model can possibly serve every kind of student, and so parents and children deserve the freedom to choose the schools that work best for them.
 The Ticket takes viewers on a historic whistle stop train tour across the United States, showing different forms of school choice along the way and the children that they serve.
Following the movies we will enjoy ice cream and fellowship. Attending the Volleyball Rally? You are still welcome to come and join us for ice cream and fellowship afterwards.
Come join is for a fun and informative evening with the school family!
