Monday Memo
Volume 2 Issue 15:  December 15, 2014
Christmas Gift
Do you have all of your Christmas shopping done? Is the tree put up and the house decorated? Do you have all of your Christmas parties planned? All of this preparation is fine, but it is not the real reason for Christmas. I encourage you to keep your focus on the Savior who is born, Christ the Lord; Immanuel, God with us. God came to this earth to free you from the bonds sin and death. Celebrate with joy all that he has done for you. Please join us throughout the Advent and Christmas season to worship the newborn King. The times and dates of our various worship services are listed below. 
In Christ, 
Michael Peek
Principal

Family Chapel


Every Wednesday morning we start our school day by gathering the entire student body together for a chapel service. We want to encourage you to worship together as a family, so when you come to chapel please feel free to sit together. The theme for this year is taken from Psalm 139:14 “Fearfully and Wonderfully Made.”

The theme is "Jesus is Coming ... Rejoice!" It is based on Psalm 24:7-10. Pastor Adam Mueller will be our speaker.

SCRIP Gift Cards are exactly like store gift cards, and the retailer gives Redeemer a percentage of the sale. It's a great way to make your dollar go a little further! Mornings from 8:15-8:45 a.m. on days when school is in session, you can find either Meghann Ditsch or Jen Watson at a picnic table on good-weather days or in Room 301. Buy scrip gift cards and let your shopping help pay for next year’s tuition. Ask Meghann or Jen how. 

ALA's Scrip program is committed to helping our ALA families and Arizona WELS elementary students generate important dollars for their tuition accounts and for their schools and congregations. Read about how the ALA Scrip program assists the families in WELS Arizona schools.

Tardy or Absent?

Please contact the school office before 9am to let us know. Thank you so much for your help with this!

Tuition Tax Credit

Because of tuition costs, many students simply would not be able to afford to attend Redeemer Lutheran School. But, thanks to the H.E.L.P. Foundation and Arizona's Tuition Tax Credit Program, many of our students are able to receive tuition tax credit scholarships. How can you help? Stop by the school office and pick up a donation forms/brochure. Take it to any Arizona taxpayer and encourage them to designate their state tax dollars (up to $2,106) for Redeemer Lutheran School. These donations will be awarded as scholarships to students at OUR SCHOOL! We need your help to spread the word! The deadline for the next distribution period is December 31. You can donate online until midnight December 31 at www.HelpScholarships.org.
