This year Grand Tour, our large fundraiser for the school, is going through a makeover! It is now called Sole2Soul and will be held at the future site of Concordia High School in Pflugerville on Sunday, April 17. Today, students will bring home an information packet and registration form. Please look over the packet for all the details.

Also, WE NEED HELP! Please contact Miss Timm if you are able to help with planning the event or on the actual day of the event.


Spots are still available for after-school music lessons with Megan Kophamer! Sign up for piano or voice lessons. Cost is $20 per lesson and lessons run for 30 minutes once a week. Recitals will be held twice a year. A wonderful opportunity for developing artistry, creativity and critical thinking!

All students in PK4, Kndg, 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th, and any new students will have their vision and hearing screening February 12. If your child wears glasses, please make sure he/she brings them on this date. If these screenings have been performed by their doctor for this academic year, please bring in documentation before February 12th.


Starting Wednesday, February 10 we are in the church season of Lent. This lasts until Easter. It is a time to prepare ourselves for the pain and suffering Jesus went through to save us from our sins and then we celebrate his death and resurrection on Easter! Chapel services for K-8 during Lent will be moved to 9:30 so the congregation members of St. Paul can participate with us as well. All are welcome to join us at any of our chapel services.


Lenten Soup Suppers will begin on Ash Wednesday, February 10. Serving will start at 5pm. Join us for a bowl of warm soup and fellowship before our Lenten Service at 6pm.


Please Note the lunch program is a prepay service. Lunches are prepared according to what has been pre-ordered for the day. This enables proper planning, meal availability and the conservation of resources. Click on the link below to view menu and place your order on-line. Password STP97.

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.


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!
