INCENTIVES FOR EARLY RE-ENROLLMENT

Early re-enrollment is underway for 2016-2017 school year! Enroll before February 29 to take advantage of the great incentives St. Paul is offering to our current families.


FIRST, any family that re-enrolls during the early enrollment period will have their children's tuition rates frozen at the 2015 level. This will freeze that family's tuition for their whole educational experience at St. Paul, as long as they re-enroll each year during early re-enrollment period.


SECOND, our school grows through word of mouth! If you bring a new family to St. Paul Lutheran School next year, we will show our gratitude by paying your your last month's tuition bill for you (up to $600)! More details to follow or see me for more information about either of these "Thank You" opportunities.


LASTLY, we are planning on splitting our 3rd & 4th grade class next year if we have 10 students enroll for 3rd grade!


Re-enrollment form is attached and is available on RenWeb and the front office.

CHAPEL PROJECT FOR 3RD QUARTER

Our chapel project this quarter will be supporting the purchase of books for Dell Children's Hospital.

We wish to deliver several boxes of new children's books (new bibles, bible story books, bible coloring and activity books, picture books, children's beginning readers and chapter books, etc.) to Dell at the end of the quarter. They will also accept new or gently used children's DVDs and books for adults (for the families of patients).

You may give monetary offerings at chapel or to the front office, or donate books to one of the large collection "gift boxes" in your student's hallway. There is a collection box located in each of the hallways: preschool hallway, primary (K-2nd) hallway, and elementary/middle school (3rd-8th) hallway. Which "gift box" will fill up first??

There will also be a collection box at the Scholastic Book Fair that will be operating during National Lutheran Schools Week, January 24-29. You may purchase right from the fair and donate to the children at Dell Children's Hospital!

You can watch our collection progress in the lobby as we add pennants to an ever-growing banner! Each flag represents $5 collected towards books for Dell.

Can your family help in this effort? Let's spread God's love through our service to others.

Let's give those kiddos some bible books!
