Mid-Year Climate Survey

In reviewing last year's end of year survey, the school board felt that it would be good to send out a mid-year climate survey this year to see how we're doing at the midpoint of the school year so that if there are any adjustments to make, we could do so before the end of the school year. Please take a couple of minutes to complete. The results will be published to the school board at its February meeting.

School Board Minutes

School board minutes for July through December of 2018 are now posted on the "resource" page in Renweb/FACTS.

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.
