K-8 Registration for 2016-17  
Application forms for the next school year are now available. This form and the $50 deposit (per child) must be returned by Friday, March 11 to receive a $100 credit toward registration. New students, as well as preschool students who will be going on to Kindergarten, will need to fill out the multi-page application form.  The enrollment right now looks as though we will continue to keep kindergarten as a self contained classroom, and then we will combine grades 1 and 2, 3 and 4, 5 and 6, and 7 and 8. The BCE is working with the following guidelines for classroom aides and the possibility of splitting the classrooms:

Part-­time Aide @ 20 Students
Full­-time Aide @ 24 Students
Split the Classroom @ 28 Students

The sooner you register your child for next year, the sooner the BCE can make decisions on staffing the classroom for next year. Therefore, your help getting these registration forms back as quickly as possible is greatly encouraged and appreciated.  If you have any questions or comments about the plans for the 2016-2017 school year, please feel free to come speak with me. 

In Christ,
Michael Peek
Principal

Basketball

Thank You to Coach D.J. Miller, Jeff Weinstein, and Andrew McDunn for taking time out of their busy schedule to coach our Redeemer basketball teams. The students very much appreciate what they have learned while under their guidance.

As our basketball season has come to an end, please return any uniforms that you might have to Mr. Stam as soon as possible.
Our spring collection contest ends today.  This is the last day of the school year to get all of your Box Tops and Labels turned in so we can determine which classrooms collected the most Box Tops and the most Labels for Education this spring. 
 
Thank you to everyone who has participated with these collection programs this school  year – each and every Box Top and Label really does make a difference.  A special "thank you" goes out to our sister congregations for their part in making the Box Tops and Labels for Education programs a success. 
Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten Registration  It is time to register for next year’s classes! All applications will be considered on a first come, first served basis with Redeemer and WELS congregation members receiving first priority of acceptance. Your application will be processed on the date that we receive the $75 enrollment fee. If your child is currently attending our preschool you must still apply for next year!
Yearbook Coordinator Needed  For the past several years Cynthia Weinstein has been working with Lifetouch to create our yearbook each year, and we thank her for doing such a great job! She, however, has decided to pursue a career in nursing and is now enrolled in nursing school. Therefore, we are now in need of a volunteer who would be willing to take over for her and continue working on this year's yearbook. Cynthia will train whoever comes on board. If you are interested, please get in touch with Sally.

Thank You to our school students in grades 3-8 for beautifying our worship services with your voices this past Sunday.

Divine Call   A Divine Call was extended to Miss Leah L. Clark of Little Lambs Preschool in Lowell, AR to serve as a preschool teacher in the morning and help out with K-8 in the afternoon. Please keep her in your prayers as she considers where to continue serving the Lord in the teaching ministry.
