Special Chapel on Oct. 4
LC-MS singer/songwriter WENDYSUE will be the musical guest for our children's chapel service on Wednesday, October 4.  With her theme "Missionary Me", Wendysue shares stories and songs about everyday opportunities to share our faith.  For the past 20 years, she's had a unique full time 'traveling' ministry that has taken her to 27 states, boldly conversing with anyone, anywhere about spiritual things "always 'ready to give an answer for the hope she has' (I Peter 3:15).  Wendysue is based out of WI where she lives with her wonderful husband of 22 years and their two fabulous teenagers. Her CD recordings will be available that day as souvenirs and faith resources for our kids. All are welcome to attend the chapel.

MAP (Measure of Academic Progress) TESTING

From September 11-21, 2017, our students in grades K-8 will be taking the MAP (Measure of Academic Progress) Tests again. Tests such as these are among the most important tools we have for evaluating individual student academic progress and our curriculum as a whole.  These tests can identify strengths and weaknesses and determine which areas, if any, a student may need extra help and in which areas he or she excels.  Consider spending a few minutes talking with your child about the purpose and importance of these tests in a way that will ease any anxiety that he or she might have.  Encourage your child to do their best, take the test seriously, but not to worry about the results.  Each child is a unique gift from God and has value far beyond simple academic evaluations.  For each testing day, please ensure that your child gets plenty of sleep, eats a good breakfast, and wears comfortable school appropriate attire.

Reformation Service - Sunday, October 29th - 3 PM

Hymn Sing, followed by the 3:30 p.m. Service at the Stefanie H. Weill Center for the Performing Arts, 826 N. 8th St., downtown Sheboygan.  The Reformation was not about anything new, but about returning to the unchanged and unchanging truth.  So it still is today.  The celebration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation is not a time for novelty.  It is time to return.  Return to the truth.  Return to the basics.  Return to the foundation.

 

Hymn Sing, followed by the 3:30 p.m. Service at the Stefanie H. Weill Center for the Performing Arts, 826 N. 8th St., downtown Sheboygan.  Drop off of attendees is possible in front of the theater.  May this celebration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation be a time when we return to Word and Sacrament, and when we turn to Christ and His love.  It's Still All About Jesus.

Not Ashamed

Our thanks to Plymouth Foam for producing a replica of this year's annual school theme logo!  It is proudly displayed in our cafeteria for all to see.  Our theme for the year is "Not Ashamed" based on Romans 1:16-17, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.  For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, ‘The righteous shall live by faith.’  The emphasis will be on boldly living our faith.

School Pictures

Our photographer, Harmann Studios, will be at St. John on Monday, October 2 to take school pictures (Re-take day Thursday, November 2).  


Every student will have a picture taken for the yearbook.  


This company has a different procedure then other companies we've used in the past.  Parents have the option to purchase an individual portrait package.
