nullOn behalf of the teachers, I would like to thank you for allowing us to go to the Valley Lu Teachers Conference. I heard teachers excited about ideas that they learned at the conference. They also have ideas about meeting with teachers in the same grade level as they teach. We also thank Mr. Bunke for leading two conference sectionals as well.

Please accept my dearest apologies for canceling the potluck at noon. There were too many extenuating circumstances which did not allow me to get it coordinated. I do want to invite you to the music concert. This is a new adventure that CTK is trying to begin celebrating Lutheran Schools Week. Coming up this week, students will be enjoying Movie Day, Teacher Switch Day, Servant Project Day, and Wacky Olympics. They also will be given a snack each day. Clothing themes include PJs, Mismatch Day, Dress Your Best, Summer Dress Day, and CTK Spirit Day.

I do want to invite you and your family to a CTK Free Family Event this Friday evening starting at 6 PM. Christ the King Lutheran School would love to see you at the Unionville gymnasium as CTK shows Paddington on the gym wall. Popcorn and a drink will be provided. Please let your family, friends and even your neighbors about this time of fellowship with other members of our CTK family.

Hey Parents…The TIMEOUT group at Immanuel will be hosting a new parenting Bible study. The group has chosen three different dates - January 28, February 18, and March 18. Just remember that is will be the Sunday with an 8 as its last digit. Anyway, more details will be coming about this fellowship opportunity with other parents. Please watch the bulletin for more details.

Mrs. Geiger wanted me to announce to 8th grade parents that time has come to think about ordering Confirmation and graduation downs. Please let the church office know by Friday, February 10th if your child will need a cap and gown ($32), a gown only ($27), or a cap and tassel ($14). Please contact the church office even if you are not in need of anything. If the church office is not notified by February 9th, a cap and gown will be ordered and you will be charged. Please contact the church office by phone 883-3050 or by email: church@ilcmi.org

If you know of a family who you feel would be a blessing to Christ the King Lutheran School and would enjoy the benefits of a Lutheran school education, I would love for you to give them my name and contact information (989-577-9432). I would love to take some time to talk with them about the ways that Christ the King has been blessed by our wonderful congregations.

Finally, thank you to Immanuel Lutheran and St. Paul Lutheran. Thank you to St. John, St Peter, Grace, and St. Paul Lutheran Churches. In a time where more Lutheran schools are closing their doors than new schools are being fostered to begin, Christ the King is the visible evidence of strong Lutheran commitment to education in the Thumb region. Because of you, students get to hear about Jesus’ love during the entire week, instead of just during a small time before or after school. Thank you for your financial, but more importantly, thank you for your prayerful support of OUR Lutheran school!

I pray that you make a difference in God’s ministry this week.

In HIS Service,

David Kaiser, Principal

Christ the King Lutheran School, Sebewaing/Unionville
