From the Principal for Feb. 2019

CHRIST THE KING celebrated Lutheran’s School week in January. We had crazy hair day, CTK day, and animal day. The student’s were treated to an animal assembly that included a tortoise, an alligator, a chinchilla, and a snake. Due to snow days, our Emoji day and our Pajama day have been extended into the following week.

OUR FIFTH GRADE class took a field trip to Zhender’s snowfest where they carved a snow block, got interviewed by WNEM TV-5, and got to sample some delicious desserts from the warming tent. Thank you to parents who braved the cold to spend time with our fifth graders.


IT’S NOT TOO LATE TO SIGN UP FOR THE FIRST LEGO TEAM! Our team will compete at a 12 team tournament that CTK will be hosting on April 13th. We will practice a couple times a week from 6:00-7:30. A tentative schedule will be provided to interested team members. We are also looking for a 2nd coach to help with this season. Please contact the school office ASAP.

God’s Blessings,

Katie Gremel

nullMany prayers go out to one of our CTK families. Over the holiday break, a fire broke out in their home. Thankfully, they are safe. Their house and belongings, however, were all damaged. If you wish to donate or have some items that you are willing to part with, please send them to the office. Prayers are also welcome, as well as some holiday cheer for a family whose spirits may be a bit lower this year. I will know more specifics next week.

Christmas program rehearsals will begin this week. Mark your calendars because you won't want to miss these special events. The Pre-K through 1st Grade program will take place at St. Paul on Friday, December 14, at 10:00 a.m. and a second performance on Sunday, December 16, at 4:00 p.m. The 2nd through 8th Grade Program will take place on Wednesday, December 19, at 7:00 p.m. at Immanuel.

Don't forget to get those SCRIP cards for your holiday shopping and earn money towards your account. If your cards are not in stock, orders go out on Tuesdays and are delivered on Thursdays.

Beginning next week, Immanuel's Wednesday chapels will be held at 2:00 p.m. This will also be Immanuel's afternon Advent service. All are welcome to join us for this time of worship.

God's Blessings,

Katie Gremel

The 6th and 7th graders headed to Camp Howell for the first time. This trip has replaced the spring trip, since Camp Wolverine has closed. Thank you to those who have donated cans and who bought some yummy baked goods. 

The 5th graders ventured off campus for their field trip to the Planetarium and the Antique shops of downtown Bay City.

The 8th grade, Washington DC Trip fundraisers have been scheduled. The first is the Sloppy Joe Dinner on October 21. They are once again selling "World's Finest Chocolate" candy bars and before the Christmas holiday they will be selling Rada knives and "That's my Pan." Contact your favorite 8th grader to purchase.


Trunk or treat is back again! Friday, October 26, come join us at the Sebewaing campus for a night of candy and games. Concessions will be available to purchase. If you would like to volunteer to help with this event, please contact the school office.

Save the date for the first Fall Music Concert. Thursday November 1, 2018 at Immanuel, our students will be showing off their musical talents. Come join us for an evening of celebration.

God’s Blessings,

Katie Gremel

Help Us Open the 2018-2019 School Year

nullOn Monday, August 27, we'll kick off the new school year with opening chapel services at both of our campuses. The community is invited to join us as we introduce new staff, start off the year with God's Word and prayer, and try to harness the youthful energy that will certainly be in abundance. You can join us for the 2nd-8th grade chapel service at Immanuel, Sebewaing, at about 8:10 a.m. The chapel service for Preschool-1st grade will be here at St. Paul, Unionville.

Changes Coming to Little Knights Preschool

What’s Changing?

We are sad to announce that Jenni Vermeersch will not be returning as director of Little Knights Preschool when the new year begins this fall. A new director has not yet been named, but the schoonulll board is working to find the best director to lead our program for years to come.

These last few years have seen some significant changes to better serve the families in our community. We’ve gone from half-day only to offering full day options, before and after school care, as well as care on snow days and breaks. Jenni has certainly been an important part of those changes. We are grateful for all she has done. 

We pray that, through this change, we will be able to continue to expand our program and better serve the families of our community.

What’s Staying the Same?

The new director will bring her own unique style to the program, but the basic structure will remain the same. 2, 3, 4, and 5 half and full days a week will still be offered at the published rates. Latchkey will continue as last year. 

Please continue to pray for our teachers, and our school, as well as our school board as they continue their important work.

(Edit @ 3:45 p.m. on 7/17) If you need to make changes to your registration, please contact the school office in Sebewaing at 883-3730.
