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.

19-20 Carnival Needs Chairperson

Looking ahead to the 19-20 school year, the carnival that will be held in April/May of that year will need a chairperson. If you are interested, please let the PTL or I (Axel) know.

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.
