Miss Christine Swoboda has returned the Call to teach 2nd grade at St. John.
Mrs. Annette Schultz from New Ulm has been Called to teach 2nd grade. Please keep Mrs. Schultz and her family in your prayers as she deliberates between these two Calls.
Mr. Gartner has received a Call to be principal at West Lutheran High School in Plymouth, MN which has an enrollment of 140 students. He would also be asked to teach two sections of religion.
Please keep Mr. Gartner and his family in your prayers as he deliberates between his Call at St. John and at West Lutheran.
From the Principal’s Desk:
It seems the theme for this Epistle should be Snow Days. Hopefully we can get a full week of school in soon. The blessing would be keeping our children safe and not being on the roads or waiting at the bus stops.
Our faculty continues to work on our MNSAA Accreditation renewal as well as our Social Studies curriculum study. We have started the process of looking into items that will need to be worked on for next year. We call it “Summer Planning” which the word “summer” sure seems great right now.
We look forward to what the Lord has planned for us to fill our two classroom vacancies. Mr. Glenn Metzger has accepted his call to St. Lucas, near Milwaukee, WI leaving a vacancy in grade 6. We have a vacancy in grade 2 right now, but our voters have extended a Call to Miss Christine Swoboda from Shepherd Lutheran in Albuquerque, NM. Please keep her in your prayers.
We know the Lord has it all figured out and so we leave it all in his hands. Thank you to all the people who continue to pray for our students, parents, and staff. We truly appreciate your dedication to the ministry taking place at St. John Lutheran School. Blessings to you all.
