Parent Connection May 9th

The teachers and staff of Faith Lutheran School would like to express their thanks to the students, parents, and PTF for their fantastic meals, the parent recess and lunch assistance, and generous gifts during Teacher Appreciation Week.
It has been an honor and a privilege to serve you this school year. Thank you for being a blessing to us!

Congratulations to the Huskies Track Team for their efforts and success at the ACSAA State Track Meet on Saturday. We’re proud of you! Our elementary girls’ and our junior high boys’ teams both took 2nd place, and our elementary boys’ team placed 3rd.

The students of Mrs. Zarnstorff, Mrs. Schneck, and Mrs. Ewings will be presenting a piano recital this Wednesday, May 11th at 4:30 p.m. All are invited to come and enjoy this showcase of the students’ progress and achievement in the past year. Light refreshments will be served following the recital.

Faith Lutheran will have a booth at the Reading Rendezvous this Saturday, May 14th from noon to 4:00 p.m. at the Loussac Library.

On Friday, May 13th the students of preschool through 8th grade will present Faith Lutheran School’s Spring Fling musical, “It’s Cool in the Furnace” at 6:30 p.m. at the Mainstage Theater of the UAA Fine Arts Building. Invite your friends and family! THERE IS NO COST FOR THIS EVENT. A free-will collection will be gathered to help cover the cost of the theater rental. Students should be at the venue by 6:10 p.m. to prepare.

Please make sure that your child brings his or her costume items to school by Tuesday as well as the signed permission slip for the dress rehearsal on Friday, May 13th at 9:00 a.m. if they have not already done so. (An attached letter and permission slip regarding costumes, sets and dress rehearsal was sent home last Monday. Extras are available in the box by the church/school office.)

Would you like to hone your cake decorating skills? Sign up for the PTF’s Cake Decorating Fundraiser this Saturday, May 14th from 10:00 a.m. to noon.  Ana Lederhos (Kindergarten parent) will be teaching the Wilton Method of Cake Decorating, Five Steps to a Great Cake.  All the proceeds from this class will be donated to the Sprinkler System Fund.  The cost is $30 with supplies and icing provided.  Bring an eight inch cake ready to be decorated.  Sign up soon as space is limited!  Contact Sheila Lillo at 229-7901 to sign up or for more information.

Mr. Zarnstorff plans to take his 3rd, 4th and 5th grades class to Potter’s Marsh over a lunch hour this week, weather permitting. He will notify students and parents when they plan to go.

PTF’s final meeting of the year is next week! We will meet on May 17th at 7pm to finalize plans for the parking lot sale and hold election of officers for the coming year.  Parents, the school needs your help to succeed.  Please consider helping by being an active member of PTF.  If you would like to be an officer or would like to nominate a parent please email the office at
Are you doing some spring cleaning? Wondering what to do with your unwanted items? Why not set them aside for the Faith Parking Lot Sale on Saturday, May 21st? Proceeds from this sale will benefit the Sprinkler System Fund. Donations may be dropped off at the school after May 16th.

Do you still have Boxtops for Education or Campbell’s Labels? Please make sure to bring any that you have collected in to school before the final day of classes. Please keep collecting all summer for next year. Thanks!
