Next week we'll celebrate National Lutherans Schools Week. For those parents who are new, this is a week that is recognized by the thousands of Lutheran schools across this country. We are thankful for our history going back centuries to colonial times and for the present system of universities that trains current Lutheran school teachers, men and women who dedicate their lives to teaching students in these schools.
During this week we have many special activities planned for the students as follows:
Friday, January 24 Fun Run - Planned as an introduction to the week, students run a course and raise money for athletics at Epiphany. A built-in rain date is Monday just in case. Here's the schedule --- K-1st grade runs 12:45-1:20, 2nd-4th grades run 1:20-2:05, and 5th-8th grades run 2:15-3:00
Sunday, January 26 Kindergarten students will sing along with the Prekindergarten students in the 10:45 worship service at Epiphany.

Students may bring canned goods for the food bank any day. They will have an opportunity to drop the cans off at the food bank on the way to the morning's devotion.
Friday, January 31 is Special Visitors Day and spirit day for dressing. Special visitors will need pick up a name badge (requires a driver's license number for background check). They will save a lot of time by registering in advance at our website. Chapel is moved to Friday, so the visitors can attend with the student. Students and their special visitors will attend the book fair and activities in the classroom. School will dismiss at 11:30 that day, so the student and visitor can have some time together in the afternoon.
Have a good remainder of this week and a great next week,
Tim Miesner, Principal
