E-Learning for 19-20 School Year

E-Learning is returning for the 19-20 school year. Below is the motion that was approved by the school board on Tuesday Night. Details will be spelled out in the 19-20 Parent Handbook coming out prior to the new school year.


The St. John-Emmanuel school board moved to reinstate E-learning with assignments due three (3) school days after return, following each campus’ normal due times. There will be no more than two (2) consecutive E-learning days. In a Monday through Friday week, there will be no more than three (3) E-learning days.

ILEARN Begins for 6th-8th Graders This Week

May Hot Lunch

The month of May gets a little crazy with the many field trips almost all classes are going on as well as the kitchen working to clean out freezers and cupboards for the summer. There will be a few pack days either for one campus or the other or both. Below is a list of those days that I know of as of this newsletter.


  • May 1st- Pack day for both campuses due to 2nd through 7th out.
  • May 10th- Pack day for Soest
  • May 16th- Pack day for Soest


Know also that the menu may not be quite as specific some days as it has been in terms of what is being served. An example would be pizza. The menu will say pizza but not specify what kind due to what we may have on hand to serve.

Current families have until April 30th to enroll without a late fee for 19-20.

Carnival News


  • The PTL is still looking for volunteers for the Spring Carnival. Whether you need volunteer hours or not, please consider signing up to help. There are still plenty of spots (about 13 of them)that need to be filled. Please encourage family and friends to volunteer also as we are only asking 1/2 hour of your time. They are still looking for Cake Walk donations as well.
  • Here is an easy link to do so: http://signup.com/go/XFPpqJj
  • Carnival Setup will be this Friday April 26th at 6pm

Volunteering at SJE

Please note the info in bold below and see where you might be able to help/volunteer. If you have not yet volunteered this year, time is running out. Please consider doing so.


**Please note that your volunteer hours this year (18-19) will reduce or eliminate up to $400 of the tuition increase/student set for the 19-20 school year.***

The Lutheran SGO for SJE

It's that time again to have a conversation about our SGO. We have many families that have filled out applications requesting funds to assist with their school tuition. This is a great way to help them. It allows the donor to donate funds to the SGO and receive a 50% Indiana state tax credit. If your donation is large enough, you can carry it over up to 8 tax years. Our need this year as of now is $19,500.00, of which we already have about $10,000.00. Please consider giving. There are so many ways to do so and more are coming in early 2019. Please visit the website for more info.

Lutheran Night at the TinCaps

This year’s Lutheran Night at the TinCaps will be on Monday, July 22 (7:05 PM). The game will feature post-game fireworks and Family Feast Night (hot dogs, popcorn, pizza slices and small soft drinks are all $1). Ticket prices did increase this year and are now $10


$1 from each ticket goes to the RN scholarship fund at Lutheran Life Villages which provides the opportunity for LLV staff to grow and earn their RN license.
