Intent to Return Survey

The school board is working on the budget for the 19-20 school year. Please watch your email boxes on Monday, Jan 7th for a very important survey. This is certainly not a binding commitment at this time, rather a gage for budget planning purposes so we can best utilize God's gifts and be good stewards of those gifts.


We need ALL families to take a minute or two and complete it by Friday, Jan 11th.

19-20 New Family Application Opens January 7th

It's hard to believe we are already looking ahead to the 19-20 school year. On Monday, SJE will open the ability for new families to apply to be enrolled at SJE next year. The link is on the website under the "Admissions/Application" page. New families will not be able to enroll until March after current families have had the opportunity to re-enroll for next year.


Don't forget to tell families looking for a school for next year about our Open House on January 27th from 12-3pm at our Soest campus.

SJE Make Up Day

As of November 15th, SJE has its second day to be made up due to the weather closure. I have looked at the calendar and we will make up November 15th on February 15th. That day will be a planned e-learning makeup day.


February 18th (President's Day)is the only other makeup day we have available to make up a snow day this year. If we do need to use Feb 18th, it will be a parent drive day with school in session. After that, the rest of the days will be added to the end of the school year in May.

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, 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 $7000.00. 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.
