National Lutheran Schools Week: National Lutheran Schools Week provides our network of nearly 2,300 LCMS preschools, elementary schools and high schools with the public opportunity to proclaim and celebrate God’s work among us in Lutheran schools. We thank God for the opportunity to provide excellent academic preparation for the children we serve. We are most grateful for the opportunity to share Jesus’ amazing love with children and their families. NLSW gives us an opportunity to proclaim these great blessings within the communities we serve.

 A special flyer for National Lutheran Schools Week events were sent home today.

Tuesday – Comfy Day

Wednesday – PS-Dark Blue, JK-Orange, K-Purple, 1&2- Yellow, 3&4-Red and 5-8-Green
