Charleston Wrap Fundraiser

This week we kicked-off the PTL fall fundraiser Charleston Wrap that will run through Wednesday, October 2nd.

Christ Lutheran School receives back 50% of wrapping paper sales and between 30-40% of the household gifts sales.

Some of the programs the Fall fundraiser raises money for: Family Fun Nights, Country Fair, Art to Grow On, Care and Crisis, Ice Cream Social, Father/ Daughter Dance, Walk Thru History, Accelerated Reader, Teacher and Sports Stipends, and the PTL Teacher Appreciation Luncheon.

So please try to think of someone who might be interested in purchasing wrapping paper or from the hundreds of different household gifts in the catalog. All the monies earned go back to our school! Together as a CLS family we hope to bless the school by meeting our financial commitments for these great programs and events. Together, we can make a difference!

You can use the order forms sent home this week or place orders online. Our school ID is Z11488.

Your Wrapping Paper Chairs,
Dale & Victoria Abrahams

Welcome Back to School!

We are looking forward to having the Christ Lutheran Family back on campus on Wednesday, September 4 for the first day of the 2019-2020 school year. We will begin the new year as we always do with a chapel service. All are welcome to join us. Following the chapel service parents are invited to stay for the PTL Back-to-School Breakfast. Our first day of school will be a half-day at which point SAC will re-open for the year at noon.

This year, our theme verse is found in Colossians 3:2 "Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things." As we live into this verse we have already witness the blessings from above. This year, we welcome 35 new students along with Eve Hopkins, 2nd Grade Teacher and Erika McFarland, 4th Grade Teacher.

We look forward to what the Lord has for us this new school year as we continue to live out our mission to support those who have faith in Jesus Christ, present and live the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all and develop the God-given gifts of students and families.

Blessing, Mr J
