Week 13 of the 2019-20 School Year

And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful.

Colossians 3:15


As we approach Thanksgiving week, we reflect on our many blessings. Thank you for sharing your blessing with us!

Thanks to all those that celebrated our 60th Anniversary with us on Thursday night. It was wonderful to celebrate 60 years of Christian Education. 

Our Holiday Vendor Fair this past Saturday was a tremendous success thanks to our Cougar Parent Club. The gymnasium was filled with over 50 vendors and lots of shoppers. Thanks to those that came out to support us. 

We have a number of Holiday events planned. We start off the season with our Deck the Halls competition on December 2nd. On December 10th we will host our annual Cocoa, Cookies and Chemistry event at 7pm. We finish the end of the week with our Christmas Through the Arts on December 13th @ 6:30pm. In addition to collecting gender neutral unwrapped gifts for children of all ages to support the Hance Family Foundation, we are also holding a winter clothes drive. Our Student Council is working with Assembly Member Barnwell collecting coats, scarves, gloves and all other winter outerwear. The box for the clothes and toys are located in front of the main office. 

On December 6th the photographer will be at MLS for graduation picture retakes. If you would like your child to retake their graduation photos, please email me or have your child let me know by Dec. 4th. If your child was absent on the original date, they will be photographed on the 6th as well. 

#MLSGivingDay - Please support Martin Luther School on Tuesday, November 26th!

The next post will be 12/8.

Have a Blessed Thanksgiving,

Mrs. Younghese
