“He is Risen! Death could not hold him.
Rejoice in the resurrection of Jesus Christ.”
~ Matthew 28
Message from Principal Angie Krauss:
I hope all of you had some time to reflect on the significance of Jesus’s resurrection and the hope and transformation this brought to the world. Today at Monday Morning prayer we will talk about God’s calling to share this “good news” with others through our words, actions, and prayers. Our students are agents of hope, peace and courage in our world and their hearts and minds are being prepared to lead in a Christ like manner.
I would like to thank all of you that have turned in your registration materials for next year. If you have not had a chance to turn in your packet, please do so as soon as possible. Students are now able to wear uniform shorts with uniform socks to school weather permitting. A reminder to drive slowly in the parking lot and only drop off in the designated drop off zone. We appreciate your cooperation in keeping everyone safe.
Remember to count your blessings this week! We have so much to be thankful for and teaching your children is at the top of our list!
In Christ’s Peace,
Be Like Christ Awards: Keke Cleveland, Audrey Ross and the entire 4th grade class.
Message from ELC Administrator Julie Simmons:
Hi to our wonderful ELC families:
I hope you all had a blessed Easter! This is just the best time of year…so much new growth, a fresh start for the year, much to look forward to!
I’m excited to be able to include my own weekly message in the Monday news…this will replace the ELC weekly tidbits, but as our teachers have special events/news to share I will be sure to include that information each week. I also want to share with you the exciting developments in our ELC program!
Our registration process for the 2018-19 school year is going very smoothly. If you have not yet turned your paperwork in, please do so right away as the deadline was March 28, 2018, and we have opened registration now to new families.
Plans are underway for the construction of our new playground. We have contracted with SPVV Landscape Architects and Terrabella, Inc. for construction. If you have not yet seen the drawings for our state of the art playground facility, stop by the office!

Cross The Phase 2 Finish Line:
Thank you to Rick Magnuson (Cameron’s grandpa), and the Magnuson Family and friends who gave to the Carol Magnuson Memorial Fund. Their gifts combined to give $10,000 to our campaign to sponsor the bleachers in our new gym! We now have $478,808 of our $600,000 goal! WE HAVE LESS THAN $122,000 TO GO! Waaaahoooooooo!
After spring break, we’ll be asking YOU, our school and parish families, to help us furnish the rest of our new ELC classrooms. Please give this prayerful consideration during spring break and watch for details when you return.
OR, you can always GIVE TODAY–and help us spread the word about our final leg to Cross The Phase 2 Finish Line!!! Follow the link below to give! For more information, please contact Cami Carlson at 489-7825 x238 or [email protected].
