School Theme T-shirts- Juan 3:16
We are once again selling school theme t-shirts to benefit kids in Central and South America (via Lutheran Heritage project Juan 3:16) by giving them the book "A Child's Garden of Bible Stories. Books cost $5 each and a portion of the proceeds from the t-shirt sales along with a Thrivent Action team along with any other money we receive will fund this project. Last year we sent almost 100 of these books to children in Papua New Guinea. Can we do more this year? Prayerfully yes!
Deadline to order is Friday Sept 14th.
We will bill you through FACTS. Please do not send in money for t-shirts.
Here is the link to order t-shirts: https://goo.gl/forms/MU1QWFgtmBgFlm3a2.
Help us spread the good news of Jesus and showing there is a Real. Present. God for these children.

Volunteering at SJE
The Volunteer Scholarship provides a maximum award of $400 per student. Your family may apply for a Volunteer Scholarship for each child in kindergarten through eighth grade to further reduce your final tuition balance. The accumulation of hours begin during the 18-19 school year and are awarded during the 19-20 school year. To qualify for a Volunteer Scholarship, you need to:
Volunteer a minimum of five (5) hours per child.
Complete the required volunteer hours during the previous school year (June 1, 2018 through May 31, 2019) to fulfill the requirements of this scholarship and not for another school purpose (i.e. class trip fundraisers). These hours will count for and be awarded the following school year.
Hours volunteered will be tracked in Renweb and can be seen on your Parentweb page in the service hours section.
**Please note that your volunteer hours this year (18-19) will reduce or eliminate the $400 tuition increase/student set for the 19-20 school year.***
Please go to the SJE website click here (or below) to find out more and look at the list of possible opportunities where you can volunteer. This list is not an all inclusive list, merely a starting point.
I pray that many volunteer to make SJE an even stronger school community where anything is possible.
The Lutheran SGO for SJE
The SJE endowment fund has been around for some time. It is finally at a point that the school can begin using it. That means more now than ever before. contributions made to this fund, make a difference. Also, at the beginning of this school year, the Lutheran Foundation ties grant funds the school receives to donations made to our endowment. In other words, every dollar donated to the SJE endowment is, one, matched into our endowment and, second is a dollar available for the school via the day school grant. In the past that amount has averaged $23,000 each school year. The funds were used for technology upgrades as well as any other classroom or school needs.
This grant, and the endowment fund have become very valuable to the school. So, please consider giving to our endowment fund so that the school has money to apply for to be used in an upcoming school year and long term from our endowment fund. If you have any questions about the endowment, please contact Axel Gruen in the school office at 260-639-0123 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
