Dear 8th Grade Parents and Students,
We are in the middle of
selling Wooden Spoon Cookie
Dough. A sale sheet
was sent home with each 8th grader. Order sheets, along with the
money, must be returned to me by Oct. 20. I will enter these
orders online. For each package of cookie dough you
sell, your child will earn $6.40 for their DC trip. I have
set up an online store. So if you want to send out emails to
family members and friends you will be able to do this. You
will still need to pick up the cookie dough at school on Oct. 29
and then deliver it to your family and friends.
The St. Paul Auction is
October 16. Our class basket
theme is "Thanksgiving". Please have your items/cash to
school by October 12. Thank you so very
On October 19, Mr. Winter
will be at St. Paul from 7:45am-8:45am to answer any questions you
might have about Living Word Lutheran High School. Before you
make your final decision on where to send your child for high
school, please be sure to check out all of the options. (especially
if this is your first 8th grader)
I wanted to thank you
again for sending items to school for the Pastor Anderson
appreciation basket. We presented him with the basket and the
thank you cards today. Your support was definitely felt and
It was good to see so many of you
at Parent/Teacher conferences. Thanks for taking time out of
your busy schedules to meet about your 8th grader.
