Parent Connection Jan 9th

A New Year’s Reminder
Welcome back to school! It is truly a blessing to have a few days off from the routine of school, just as it is when you have a few days away your place of work. I hope you had some time to relax and enjoy some family time, maybe to do something out of the routine, something special.
It is truly a blessing to come back to school, too. I heard on the radio and television announcements similar to this, “Sorry, kids, it’s time to head back to school.” As if that is something bad.  On the contrary, learning should be a life-long activity.
Through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, King Solomon set a purpose and a theme for the book of Proverbs when he wrote that these proverbs would be good “for attaining wisdom and discipline; for understanding words of insight, for acquiring a disciplined and prudent life, doing what is right and just and fair; for giving prudence to the simple and discretion to the young;… The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline.”
May God give each of us the desire to learn more every day, especially more about Him and his love for us.

Making Life Better
          One of our goals at Faith Lutheran for you and for your family is to make your life better.  We want to make your life better by assuring you that your children are getting a quality, well-rounded education.  We strive for excellence not only academically but, as a Christian school, it is our earnest desire to help your child grow spiritually as well. Because of this, we want you to know what your children will be learning and what the Lutheran Church believes, teaches and confesses.   It’s with this in mind that I would like to invite you to a class entitled “Making Life Better.
The entire course consists of three parts: Reviewing the Past, Changing the Present and Transforming the Future.  We would like to extend an invitation to you for the first five lessons.  We will meet on Monday evenings from 6:30-7:30 beginning on January 23rd.  You are more than welcome to stay for the final two parts over the following weeks as well.
