FROM THE DESK OF MR. WRUCKE:

After a few weeks of settling in to back to school routines, we start to pick up the pace a bit with events and activities.

Our P.T.L. kicked off its biggest fundraiser of the year, the school-wide magazine and cookie dough sale. Thursday night, we held a back to school “Meet and Greet” night and next Thursday is the Give For Good Louisville Day that our school participates in. Please take time to read more information about these events here in the Panther Tale or in the packets that your child brought home.

It is hard to believe but we have completed 1/3 of the first academic quarter of the school year! We hope you have tried out our administrative system, “Sycamore”, to keep an eye on your child’s progress/grades with this system. As always, please feel free to email or call the teacher with questions and concerns. Now is the time to make adjustments in areas that need to be making more successful progress.

WELCOME!

We’d like to welcome Khruti Pillarisetty (3 year old Preschool) and Peyton Taylor (Kindergarten) and their families to our school!

FROM THE DESK OF MR. WRUCKE:

What an “encouraging” first week! It was great to see the students enjoying being back to school and our teachers doing what they do best…teach!

Challenges will no doubt come about. School, work, home, and activities will, at some point in our lives, be confronted with a challenge. We as believers in Christ need to recognize those around us that face struggles and become “encouragers” for them. Paul lists encouragement among the gifts of Grace. When was the last time you encouraged someone? Be the person who helps someone laugh, the one who listens, one who comforts, consoles, and affirms. That is the message we wanted the kids to take hold of this week. Be the “encourager”, your life will be blessed by it.

We welcome new staff members Shannon Lucas (preschool aftercare) and Alex Hannon (K-8 after school care). We are happy to have them as part of our staff and praise God for their willingness to serve our school in this role.

 

PRAYER REQUESTS

Please keep the Douglas family in your prayers as Mr. Tom Douglas recovers from a motorcycle accident he was in last Thursday. May God guide the doctors and nurses caring for Tom and give comfort to the rest of the family at this time.

If you have personal, family or general prayer requests please notify the school office. We will print them whenever possible so our OSLS community can join your prayers.

We’re counting down the days to Sept. 13 and Give for Good Louisville. We need your help to make our campaign a success, and we’ve included a few easy ways you can support us. 

Share and share alike. Online days of giving are successful because of our own networks. Help us grow our network by sharing this flyer and the posts to come with family and friends and asking them to do the same.

Be socially (media) active. Use your social media networks: post on Facebook, tweet about Give for Good Louisville, and share your love for your particular passion, whether it’s education, health care, animals, or the arts (Our Savior!). Ask others to do the same.

Become a Fundraising Champion. Everyone loves a champion, including us! We really need fundraising champions to help drive people to our Give for Good profile on Sept. 13. Contact us for more information on how to become a fundraising champion!

Thank you in advance for your support!

School Newsletter

From the Desk of Mr. Wrucke:

Welcome Back! As we begin the 2018-2019 school year, we pray for God’s richest blessings as we journey together under the theme “Attitude is Everything”.

We will work hard to create a positive school environment and keep encouragement, compassion, humility and selflessness in the minds of our students this year. Putting these attributes into action on a consistent basis is the challenge, but our goal is to make progress. To have success we need you, the parents, to partner with us. If those attributes are on the forefront at home, it will carry over to the school setting as well. Working together, I am sure we will meet with success. May this 28th year of Our Savior Lutheran School be the best ever!

We’d like to welcome Miss Georgia Stinson to the Our Savior Lutheran School faculty. She will be teaching 4th grade and comes to us from Boyce College here in Louisville. This will be her first full year of teaching and we are blessed to have her as part of our school family.

You’ve seen Mrs. Linda Koch in our building in the past, but we are so grateful God led her to take on the role as our new Pre-school 4’s teacher. She was in this particular role before, and most recently was aide for Mrs. Masterson’s Preschool 3’s class, so she has plenty of experience leading our younger students.

A huge Our Savior Welcome to our New School Families and Students!

In Kindergarten we have the Zoeller, Conner and Herndon families. In 1st, the Ensmingers. And in 6th we have the Windhorsts, Barbers and Athertons. Also, welcome to our many new Pre-school families!

Many Thanks to the Service Master Cleaning crew, especially Wes and Alexa, for all their hard work in getting the school gym, hallways, and classrooms ready for the new school year. You are awesome!

Special Thanks to Matt Hesse, Marshall Skillman, and a host of volunteers who repaired and replaced facility equipment in and bush/tree trimming all around the church and school. It is a never-ending job that has its bumps in the road, but know you are appreciated!

A Huge Thank You to the PTL and its leader, Kara Turoso, for purchasing the new rubber mulch for our playground area. A Bigger Thank You to Mr. Hiegel and his kids for spreading the mulch.

A Heartfelt Thanks goes out to Mrs. Donna Granderson for making a beautiful new classroom church attendance banner for our school. It was much needed, and we are so appreciative of your kindness.

Did you know …

              The congregation of Our Savior supports our school in many ways. Your tuition alone does not cover the entire school budget and the congregation contributes to over 30% of that budget financially, while also volunteering many hours and lifting our school, it’s students and families, up in prayer. Our school is most certainly a major mission of our church and we praise God for working through the church and school to help share the gospel message to those who have been a part of Our Savior. Without the support of the church, your tuition would be far greater than what it is.

Forms and Fees are due! Please make sure you turn in all your students’ required forms and fees immediately. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Hannon in the front office.

Parent Teacher League – Room Parents Needed!

We need room parents for Kindergarten and 5th grade!

The PTL helps coordinate and execute many of the fun activities for our students, staff and school families throughout the year. We are always in need of helping hands.  If you are interested in being a Room Parent or learning more about all the other ways you can help the PTL please reach out to Mrs. Kara Turoso at 816-506-0295 or via the school office.

TRAFFIC REMINDERS

  • SLOW DOWN! The speed limit in our parking lots is 5 mph for the safety of everyone on our campus.
  • DO NOT PARK IN THE CIRCLE DRIVE.This backs up the drop-off line and instigates unsafe conditions when drivers have to pull around parked cars to proceed through the line. Please park in any spot along the soccer field and walk your child in from there.
  • DO NOT ENTER THE FIRST ENTRANCE(closest to Lyndon Lane) DURING AM OR PM CARPOOL. Use the drive nearest the church sign. During all school days, we operate on a ONE-WAY system and the first drive is EXIT ONLY.

 

It is NOT OK to park outside of designated parking spaces in ANY lot. It is dangerous and problematic,     especially during afternoon carpool, as several parents are parking by the back gym door or outside of marked parking spaces. People trying to leave are being blocked in and children are unsure of where it is safe to walk. A designated parking space has lines on BOTH sides of the space. We have several lots and plenty of spaces. If you notice someone violating the carpool rules, please do not hesitate to report it to the school office immediately. These rules are in place for the safety of all of our children! Please be courteous and obey them.

NO SCHOOL

Monday, September 3 – Labor Day

 

EARLY DISMISSAL – 11:45am

There will be NO school hot lunch!

At 6pm we will all meet in the gym for teacher introductions and some important upcoming date reminders. We should be on our way home no later than 7pm.

 

All of us at Our Savior Lutheran School wish Pastor Fausel a wonderful retirement! His last Sunday with us will be August 26th. Pastor Fausel has been a great supporter of our school and we pray God will bless the next phase of his life and continue to use him to share the gospel message in a different way.

God Speed Pastor Fausel!

Parents and friends are invited to attend our chapel services each Wednesday morning at 8:45am. Our August 29th chapel will be led by Mr. Kamman.

Sycamore, eFunds, AR…oh my!

You should have received a flyer with log in information to all of the websites we utilize. Sycamore is used to track grades, attendance and lunch account balances. eFunds is used to electronically reload your lunch account. Accelerated Reader is your link to track your student’s progress to their AR goal (they cannot test from home). If you need help accessing these sites you can reach out to Mrs. Karen Tate – ktate@oslslouisville.com

 

Mr. Jordan Spillers, a third-year music student at Boyce College in Louisville, is offering to teach guitar lessons to anyone interested in grades 4-8. Time of practice and cost will be determined if we have enough interest.

Please let Mrs. Hannon in the school office know if you would be interested by Friday, August 31st.
