Reformation Lutheran School Newsletter

Week 24– 2/16/2018

Message from the Principal –  Lent is Here!

Lent is upon us! It sure seems like time is flying by. This past Wednesday was Ash Wednesday. At our last church and school, we used to put the ashes on our forehead. I miss that tradition. The 7th and 8th graders would help the pastor burn palms from the previous Palm Sunday to create the ashes. We would put them in a bowl and then use them in at our church service.

The ashes would be a reminder of our penitence and a reflection of our Savior going to the cross for our sins. Their use suggests, in a dramatic way, God’s judgment and condemnation of sin, our frailty and total dependence on God, humiliation and repentance. The pastor would remind us that "from dust you have come and to dust you will return". A reminder that we will all experience physical death if we don't see Judgement Day.

Lent also means rebirth. A rebirth that comes through the forgiveness found in Jesus Christ. His death on the cross was for the world's sin. Our rebirth also comes from his resurrection. The condemnation of sin is taken away because of Jesus' death and sacrifice.

We invite you to join us on a journey to the cross with Lent services beginning at 7:00 pm on Wednesday. We also have soup supper at 5:30 pm as a time for fellowship with our fellow Christians. May the Lord bless your Lenten journey!

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 19

TK Update – Mrs. E

Hello and welcome to the wonderful world of 4K-TK in our winter workshop! Beginning in January-February, we have been working super hard on the alphabet, recognition, lower, upper case letters, beginning sounds and reading words. Part of each day begins with the Word of God, calendar and movement in motion. In calendar time, we recognize numbers and counting.

We had a wonderful field trip to the zoo last month and we have been learning about the habitat of different animals, if they live in the air, sea or land. We look forward to our upcoming field trip to the Seussical Musical. This will be a treat for the students to see a play with other children performing. This field trip happens to take place on the same day as A Taste of Kindergarten, but please take advantage of coming to see what they have to offer (A Taste of Kindergarten), as well as meeting the Teacher and Principal for this event. We won't be leaving for the field trip until 11 o'clock which will give you plenty of time to enjoy your visit and make the field trip. Thank you for allowing us to serve your Transitional Kindergartener.

Financial Peace University is that plan. This 9-week class taught by money expert Dave Ramsey can change your financial story in a matter of weeks—and your family tree for generations to come.
