Greetings parents and students –
The time has come again for a K-8 Work Exchange with the teachers and for our Preschool students to pick up some more fun learning activities from Ms. Stacia. I hope that things are going well for you and your students, and if you have a struggle or question – please be reaching out to the teacher for guidance. The plan is to be available on Monday from 4:30 – 5:30 for drive thru exchange again. IF you are in need of a different time, please email back and we will make that happen. This is a great time for you to turn in your lunch and tuition payments as well.
Nine Schools from the Northwest District collaborated to put together a Holy Week chapel for their students. Staff from the following nine schools were involved in this (and one school even found a way to include students):
- Anchor Lutheran School, Anchorage, AK
- Bethlehem Lutheran School, Kennewick, WA
- Concordia Christian Academy, Tacoma, WA
- Concordia Lutheran School, Seattle, WA
- Forest Hills Lutheran Christian School, Cornelius, OR
- Hope Lutheran School, Seattle, WA
- Peace Lutheran School, Bremerton, WA
- Pilgrim Lutheran Christian School, Beaverton, OR
- Trinity Lutheran School, Bend, OR
Here’s the video link:
For students that were involved we wanted to let you know that both Spelling Bees for this spring have been cancelled.Staff will be making plans for the best ways to celebrate our graduates and all of our Immanuel families after this pandemic is over! Thank you all for your commitment to Lutheran Education and helping your child through this crazy 4th quarter.
Blessings on your Holy Week observation and Easter Celebrations.
…an investment in knowledge always pays the best interest. -Benjamin Franklin
Do you watch the stock markets much? I have a hunch it’s really not the best time to invest in much of anything…. maybe we should have in TP or maybe we still have a slight chance on some other sought-after item??
I also have a hunch, though, that the best investment all of you have already made is in a Christian education for your child at ILS! I’m convinced that few things provide more hope in this country and world right now than teaching our children about Jesus! Yes, we can teach this at home; BUT the school is designed to partner with you as parents to teach God’s perspective in every subject and matter in life-whether it be morals or math- God’s love can be applied.
It doesn’t mean that they will be perfect people or that the school is a perfect paradise; but by choosing this education, you have committed to praying for it, supporting it, and fighting for it! That is an ETERNAL investment! And in times like these, even when we are not physically together in the building, the children have been taught a routine of prayer and devotion in the morning, giving to God in different ways through their talents, missions or academic grades, and closing their day with Jesus. That routine carries through and hopefully even serves as reminders for us at home as we struggle with how to handle this new way of life.
INVEST EARLY, INVEST OFTEN!
