Today’s newsletter will be the last one from the school for 2021. Although the first part of the calendar year brought us many hardships, the second half gave us cause for much celebration. The start of the 2021-22 school year has been a joyous one as we were enabled to open our doors to our families. Highlights for me were making two previously postponed trips to Washington DC, bringing back our annual Thanksgiving feast, placing the sign of the cross on student foreheads during Baptismal Remembrance, and having our Advent Service in person. We are so blessed at St. Paul’s for our families, staff and the support from the church and congregation. I wish that the sweet love of Christ will surround you and your whole family and cause you to have the most joyous of Christmas celebrations.
May God bless you and your families in this holiday season and into what we all pray will be a new year filled with hope. Take care, stay healthy and be safe. We look forward to seeing you in 2022 as we celebrate St. Paul’s Lutheran Church & School’s 150th anniversary. Save the Dates: July 16 & 17 for St. Paul’s Lutheran School homecoming event and the school open house on Oct. 29. Visit our website at www.stpaulswaverly.org/150th-anniversary/ to learn more about our year-long celebration in 2022.
Many thank you’s to Lisa, Danielle, and the volunteers who helped our little ones pick out the gifts for those special people in their lives. Also a big thank you to those that donated all those precious trinkets for the children to shop for as well as your donations to Capstone.
Dhani Miller and Isabelle Gidley have taken the initiative to start a student school newsletter. What a great service project from our two 6th grade students! Here is a link to their December edition, be watching our school newsletter for links to future editions.
