Welcome to St. John's Lutheran School
Dear Partners in Education,
Summer is moving quickly; it’s difficult to believe that we are only a month away from the start of another academic year. The entire team here at St. John’s is excited to welcome you and your student(s) to another year filled with spiritual, academic, and socioemotional growth. On a personal note, I’m looking forward to beginning the process of working with each family in the best interest of student learning.
Our theme for the 2018-2019 school year is “Forever.” This is based on Hebrews 13:8 which simply says, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today, and forever.” In an ever-changing world that at times can feel uncertain and unpredictable, we have a savior and friend in Jesus Christ that has always been, is always, and will forever be for each and everyone of us. This year’s theme will celebrate many different eternal promises and aspects of Jesus.
Some items to note over the next few weeks:
The Dennis Uniform sale is Saturday, July 21, from 10 AM-1:00 PM in the Event Center.

Families with students new to St. John’s should have received tuition billing information for the school year. Please contact Mrs. Sara Kinsey in the office if you have any questions.
Our staff will report Wednesday, August 1 to begin preparing for the new school year. I ask you to keep them in prayer as we begin the process of welcoming our students on Wednesday, August 15. On the afternoon of August 2, our teachers will be emailing families via Sycamore to inform them of each student’s class placement. The staff has given careful and prayerful consideration to this, taking into account all factors in order to place our students in the quality learning environment we all desire.
Kindergarten students and students new to SJLS in grades 1-6 will be contacted by their teacher to receive a home visit to introduce them to our school culture. All students in grades 1-8 will have an opportunity to sign up online beginning August 2 to schedule a time to drop off their school materials on Monday, August 13. To access that, please use the following link and click on General – All Classes http://www.sjlschool.org/forms.
New families to SJLS were sent a separate email from Sycamore, our school information system, which includes login credentials. It is best to do this initial set-up with your home computer, rather than your cell phone. If you did not receive the invitation email, please check your spam folder.The Parent Orientation Eveningâ€‹ is scheduled for Wednesday, August 8th at 5:30 PM in the Worship Center. The Junior High Parent Orientation will immediately follow. Please plan to attend these important meetings to learn about the 2018-19 school year.
