CHAPEL OFFERINGS FOR MARCH
During the month of February, we collected $109.69 in our weekly Chapel offerings for Mission Schools in the Dominican Republic, Nebraska District Hearts for Jesus Project. Today, we are sending home a small green envelope with students in Grades K-5 which may be used for a Chapel offering sometime this month. Our Chapel offerings during the month of March will go to pay for the St. Paul’s radio broadcast over KWBE which will be sponsored by the students in honor of National Lutheran Schools Week.

March tuition is due this week. February lunch bills will be sent home this week. Please contact the office with any questions about your bill.
The monthly calendar with the lunch menu on the reverse is coming home today. Please keep it for reference during the month of March!
