Happy New Year!

Hopefully by now you are settling back into the school day routine. We kick-off the new year with a few upgrades to the campus and new after school opportunities.

During Christmas break the parking lot had a bit of a transformation. We now have wider spots and speedbumps to slow us down in an effort to keep things running smoothly and everyone safe. Thank you for doing your part to help by only allowing students to enter and exit on the passenger side of the car.

SAC added a "Homework Help" program where Student Council representatives provide free after school homework help to our elementary students enrolled in SAC. A new round of Jr Chargers Volleyball starts up on Monday and Jr Chargers Cheer will return in the next couple of weeks. We will continue to add new students in 3rd-8th grade who wish to join the after school choir program.

We have our annual Grandparents Day coming up on February 1 and our Admissions Open House on February 2. We look forward to all the upcoming events from Family Fun Night, Jog-a-Thon and the Talent Show. As this new year begins, we are so thankful to have you here as part of the Christ Lutheran Family and look forward to what the Lord has for us in 2019!

In His Service,

Principal's Message

The advent services and musicals we have enjoyed over the past few weeks have allowed us to leave all the hustle and bustle of the secular part of the season and focus on the TRUE Christmas message of celebrating Christ’s birth and the salvation we have through Him. A BIG THANK YOU goes out to our teachers and students for all the work and effort in presenting the Christmas Story. It is said, “Miracles produce and enrich faith.” Truly, we have witnessed miracles in these performances.

We will be having a special candlelight Christmas Eve Service at 7:00 pm. We would love to have you join us!

Have a Blessed Christmas and a Wonderful New Year!!!

Blessings, Mr. J

The Mystery of the Manger has been solved!

We were visited by Jane Blond, an investigative reporter who was looking into allegations that the baby Jesus born on Christmas Day was indeed the Son of God. She had questions, we had answers. She tried to poke holes in the Biblical account of Jesus, but facts are facts. Jesus fulfilled every Old Testament prophesy about the coming Messiah. The eye witness accounts documented in the Gospels are more evidence of the Truth. Way to go 5th - 8th grade students who brought forth this powerful message through song and dance and a BIG thank you to the incredible teachers who helped the students bring this story to the stage: Mrs. McKenzie, Mrs. Nicholson, Mrs. Kim and Ms. Noch. A special thank-you to Unmatched Lighting, we appreciate you!

Jesus is the Reason for the Season!

That was the message we took to the street on Sunday at the San Pedro Holiday Parade. Our Jr Chargers Cheer Squad brought holiday cheer to our local community as we offered a loud and proud "Merry Christmas from Christ Lutheran."

I'm so thankful and blessed to serve here at Christ Lutheran where we can talk to students about the true meaning of Christmas. Our students have an opportunity to share the Christmas story during advent services and live into God's story of redemption that all started with a baby in a manger. In the midst of the busyness of the Christmas season we are reminded that through Christ alone we have Hope, Faith, Peace and Joy that you can't find on Amazon. Anything else we turn to will leave us empty and unsatisfied. We will be caught up in the trap this world tells us the holidays are all about, but we know the Truth. Take time to reflect on the promise and hope we have in Jesus and perhaps the traffic, shopping lines and hiding that elf won't be so stressful!

"For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace." Isaiah 9:6

Merry Christmas,

Happy Thanksgiving!

And just like that, we're on Thanksgiving break! My hope and prayer is that you have a wonderful time celebrating Thanksgiving with your friends and family and enjoying some time away from school for a whole week! Please pray for our teachers and staff who will be traveling to the Lutheran Educators Conference in Palm Desert. It's a time when our staff is encouraged and equipped for the work God has given them to do here at CLS. I'm so thankful to serve alongside these incredible educators and thankful for all our wonderful parents who make Christ Lutheran such a fantastic school!

"Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever." Psalm 107:1

Treats for Troops

A "BIG" thank you to all who donated to Treats for Troops. Mike from San Pedro Packages for Patriots was so happy he hugged me and thanked me over and over for bringing down the cards and many bags of candy from our students. He truly appreciates our donations for his project to help our servicemen and women serving abroad. May you all have a blessed Thanksgiving.

PRAY- RUN- GO the Extra Mile

This is a way I’d like to carry on my mom’s legacy of faith, prayer and exercise- all into one:
Activity for
Youths (and adults too!)

What is it? Activity to promote physical and spiritual growth.
When is it? Fridays 15 min after school on the school track around the field.
Why? To increase physical strength, cardiovascular health and endurance while also taking time to talk to God after our busy school days and before busy weekends.
GOALS: *ANNUAL GOAL FOR EACH STUDENT 4 miles for students K-4, and 10 miles for older kids (5-8). (All participants earn a free dress.)
**OPTIONAL PRIZE GOALS: K-4, and 5-8 runners with the most miles accumulated per quarter receive a snack from the snack shack. Each lap a student runs/walks earns them 1 tally mark on their cards. 10 tally marks = one mile. Runners may run more than one mile per Friday, and tally marks carry over onto the next Friday. Please direct any questions to Coach Quella at (310) 831-0848 x 1207 or
