18-19 Theme Verse: "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble" Psalm 46:1
Active Shooter Training
Once training is done, I'd like to discuss and decide how we at SJE will do those drills and then practice at least once after Christmas and again later in the year.
Faculty/Staff Christmas Party
February Staff PD Day
I will need to have your learning plan to me by Monday, January 28th. That plan needs to include what you intend to research/learn, how it will be or how you see it being used to enhance the learning in your classroom and anything you may need to implement what you have learned.
3rd Quarter Chapel Offering
This year's trip is to Peru and that is where the money will go. There will also be a week's worth of print and video resources available, making it perfect for Lutheran School Week. We can talk about it more later. I want to get this to you earlier so some planning can be done in advance of that. It is our intent to focus on this more during Lutheran Schools Week.
The Pursuit of Excellence
There will be about 50 yard signs posted all over various targeted areas in Hoagland and Monroeville with the website on it but nothing more. It is designed to create interest. Once there, the site will refer people to the school website. Check it out as you have time so you know what it's about.
TLSP Challenge Cup
The schools in TLSP are invited to join the 2019 TLSP Cup Challenge. This year, schools will be invited to submit their average number of service hours performed per student during the month of January 2019 to compete for the TLSP Challenge Cup. Let’s show our Lutheran spirit by serving others!
Service hours must be performed during the month of January 2019.
Service hours must be performed at school or as a school. For simplicity of tracking, service completed by students outside of school will not be counted toward this project.
Hours should be tracked to the nearest ½ hour.
The total number of hours completed by the school must be divided by the total number of students in the school to get a per student average.
The school with the highest per student average of service hours will win the TLSP Challenge Cup traveling trophy and an all school ice cream party.
Totals must be submitted to Alicia Levitt at TLSP by Feb. 8, and the winning school will be announced at the TLSP Winter Professional Development on February 15, 2019.
Schools are encouraged to have a champion for this project who will track service hours for the school. A sample tracking form for teachers may be found here.

TLSP Open House and ECE Open House
Folks it is key that we do all we can to get behind these events and support them. At a minimum, we need to maintain current enrollment numbers and at best we need to grow. If not, cuts will need to happen. We are at the break even point with enrollment and needed faculty and staff. Please do all you can to help.
