A small envelope is coming home today for April Chapel offering, you may send in money or food. We are trying to collect cereal boxes for the food pantry, but you may bring in any canned or boxed items.

SEMISAURUS THANK YOU
Thank you to all who helped in the kitchen with the meal or with the museum. You were a big part of making our Semisaurus Creation Museum visit such a success! Approximately 789 people visited the museum during its three day visit and learned about how science and the Bible can coexist. Your support helped to make this a wonderful outreach event to our community. We still have cooked, frozen chicken available to purchase, $12 for 4 chicken halves. Please contact Mrs. Duever or the school office if you are interested.
The annual St. Paul Spelling Bee will be held on Monday, April 10th at 7:00 p.m. The event will include any and all St. Paul students from grades 1-5 who wish to participate.
This year the annual Parent Survey is found online at Survey Monkey. The link is: https://www.surveymonkey.com//r/33FDXN6. You can also find the link on the school website, and it was emailed to each family. You may notice that there is a duplicate question for teachers, this allows you to complete that information for each of your children. If you only have one student, just skip over the extra teacher questions. Please complete the survey by Wednesday, April 12th.
There will be NO SCHOOL for all children in grades Preschool through 5th on Thursday, April 13th through Monday, April 17th for Easter Break. School resumes on Tuesday, April 18th.
Due to a conflict with St. Paul’s Church Council Meeting the St. Paul’s PTL meeting has been moved to Thursday, April 20th. Please mark your calendar accordingly and plan to attend this last PTL meeting of the year.
The Grades 1-5 Spring Musical entitled Survivor Babylon will be presented on Friday, April 21st at 7:00 p.m. Students are enjoying their practices as they prepare for the performance! We hope all of you will be able to join us for the Musical. The Pre-School, Pre-Kindergarten, and Kindergarten Program will be presented on Friday, April 28th at 7:00 p.m. They are working hard to prepare an enjoyable evening for you.
COOKIES FOR MUSICALS
Families who did not bring cookies for Grandparents Day in March are asked to bring one dozen cookies for refreshments after the Spring Musical. Please send the cookies with your child the morning of April 21st or when you pick your children up that afternoon. Please do not wait to bring the cookies until you come that evening as it doesn’t give us enough time to get them arranged for serving before the program starts. Some of those cookies will be frozen and then will be served for the Pre-School, Pre-Kindergarten, and Kindergarten program on April 28th.
SINGING IN CHURCH
The students in Grades K-5 will sing at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church on Sunday, April 23rd at the 10:30 a.m. Worship Service.
