Welcome to grades 6 - 8!
The Mitten Tree
In the hallway at school is a Christmas tree. At this time it is pretty bare. This year we are going to decorate the tree with mittens. We would be pleased if our tree is overflowing with ornaments (mittens/gloves) of any size or color. We will be collecting until Friday December 21st, at which time we will give them to a local group to pass out to those who really need them.
Gifts of Thought
Sometimes in the hustle and bustle of the Christmas holidays we forget to stop and count our blessings. We take for granted the many things we have. We even take for granted the many people we have in our lives that love us, provide for us, and care for us. We have been reading, learning, and praying about some people less fortunate than us and as a class have decided to do something about it. In Platteville, WI there is a group home for young men ages 14-17 who have been removed from their homes by the state. Either their homes are not a fit environment for the child to live in, or the child has behavior’s that make it unsafe to be at home. These young men literally have nothing. Even the clothes on their backs have been provided by the state. We celebrate Christmas with family and friends. We go to church and praise God. We know we are all children of God and are loved. These boys don’t have anyone in their lives that they can count on and don’t have much self-worth. They may not know their Savior or that they are loved by Him. The sixth through eighth grade class are making gifts for these young men. We are raising money to buy some gifts, fill Christmas stockings, and purchase gift cards for each one of the boys. In addition we are presenting each one with a Bible with their name in it. As a class, we are traveling to their home to Christmas Carol for them and to present the gifts to them personally. We want them to know we care about them and so does Jesus. Please, if you are able, and would like to contribute to this cause you may give a donation and it will be applied towards these gifts. We will be following the entire process with video footage and will respond back to the congregation with results of our efforts to help others and to reach out and “teach the Word” to all people. Please consider supporting our effort! Donations may be given directly to Mr. Fulton or received in the school office. There is also a box in the back of church. Thank you for making a difference!
Everything we do in our classroom is centered on the Word of God. All subjects are taught from a scriptural viewpoint. Our students observe Christ-like attitudes as they study and play at St. Paul's. Please feel free to contact Mr. Fulton if you have any questions concerning his classroom or St. Paul's Lutheran School. God's blessings.
