This Sunday is Confirmation Sunday at church. The eighth graders will be tested on their knowledge of Scripture and the Catechism during the 9:00 Sunday School/Bible Class hour. This will be followed by the 10:00 Confirmation service at which they will be giving their confirmation oaths. This is a very special day in the life of a Christian. Please plan on being here for the 9:00 examination. The children will also be singing during the church service.
Kindergarten comes every day next week.
Our spring play is Thursday, May 21, at 7:00 p.m. The students should all be here by 6:30 so they have plenty of time to get their costumes on. Parents are asked to bring refreshments to share.
Our school is participating in the Spring Lake Park Tower Days Parade again this year. The parade will be Thursday, June 4, at 6:30 p.m. If you intend to participate, please let Mrs. Hein know so we have a good idea of how many we will have. The parade starts at 6:30 but we will need to be there earlier to line up. Mrs. Hein will be sure to let you know where and what time we will meet as the date gets closer.
The last day of school is Friday, May 22. We will have the end of the year “picnic” at about 11:15 (hopefully closer to 11:00) after which school will be dismissed.
