Celebrating Easter

Here at Christ Lutheran, we have the privilege of celebrating the true meaning of Easter. Sure, we will have a great time at our Easter Egg Hunt Sunday morning and had fun creating bunnies for our buddies, but we know that Easter is so much more than bunnies and baskets. We have been talking in our classrooms about the incredible miracle that took place Easter Sunday when our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ rose from the dead. A day when Jesus conquered sin and death for all who believe and accept His free gift of salvation.

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead." 1 Peter 1:3

"He is not here, he has risen, just as he said." Matthew 28:6 And Sunday morning we will rejoice "Hallelujah"

From hawks to cats and dogs we saw them all, through on and off-campus learning experiences this week. On Monday, our K-8 students learned all about the training and care of hawks during a demonstration led by one of our parents who trains hawks and was happy to answer all of our many questions! After that it was off to the Los Angeles K-9 Police Station, where our 2nd graders learned all about these amazing police dogs and toured the station. We ended the week with a visit from the "Cat in the Hat" as part of the "Read Across America" program which honors the work of Dr. Seuss.

A Wonderful Goodbye to a Special Teacher

Margaret B. Nosco, our Christ Lutheran Church and School church member and Kindergarten teacher passed away on February 8, 2018. Many have felt the loss of this great lady and continue to do so.

But The Christ community came together to give Meg a wonderful goodbye. Staff, parents , church members and PTL all worked together to help make the memorial service and reception an affair to remember. I am especially thankful to Pastor Nathan Hoff for his message to the family at the memorial service.

Again, thank you all so very much for your love.

We always thank God for all of you and continually mention you in our prayers. We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.
1Thessalonians 1:2-3

Blessings!

Dear Christ Lutheran Families-

We are mourning the passing of our beloved teacher and friend, Meg Nosco.

Over the past couple of weeks, our teachers have been talking with their students about Mrs. Nosco’s failing health and having moments in the classroom to pray for her. One of our teachers had her students recall their time in Mrs. Nosco’s classroom two years ago….

“We then went on to spend about 10 minutes remembering Kindergarten and Ms. Nosco. There were laughs and smiles as the children shared all their fond memories of eating rice, sailing on the Mayflower, eating goat cheese and olives while Mrs. Nosco was dressed up in a beard as Abraham, making gingerbread men, and all of the other amazing things she did with them. It was nice to focus on the good times and not feel so sad. I reminded the children that our lives are just a short blip in comparison to eternity and that they will get to spend forever with Mrs. Nosco in Heaven. We grieve as we miss her and her sweet hugs, but we rejoice that she is out of pain, cured of cancer, worshiping at the feet of Jesus.”
-Dionne Sevy, Second Grade.

The grief is heavy throughout our campus from the teachers who spent over 25 years teaching alongside Meg, to families who credit their children’s ability to read from their year in Meg’s Kindergarten class, to students who are learning how to walk through these difficult moments in life while trusting that God is preparing an eternal home for all of us and that Mrs. Nosco just got there before us.

Mrs. Nosco, you will forever be in our hearts. We can never thank you enough for your faithful service to Christ Lutheran.

The service celebrating Meg's life and ministry will be held this Monday, February 12th at 11:00 AM. A bereavement meal is to follow in the Church/School gymnasium.


Samantha Fulton, Admissions Director
