St. Mark’s Lutheran School in Eureka will celebrate National Lutheran Schools Week during Jan. 28 through Feb. 3. Organizers indicate the week provides an opportunity to reflect on the Lutheran School's strong emphasis on Christian education.
The theme for National Lutheran Schools Week 2013, is “Baptized for This Moment” based on Acts 2:38–39.
St. Mark’s will observe this week by enjoying a special chapel on Baptism, and students will participate in multiple fun and engaging activities, such as:
- Surprise “teacher-swap”
- Movie day
- Special lunch menu for the entire school to enjoy.
Students also participate in “Minute to Win It” games in conjunction with Fenton’s Our Savior Lutheran students on Jan. 31 at 1 p.m.
On Feb. 1, families and community members are invited to attend St. Mark’s annual Italian Night. The fundraiser benefits St. Mark’s School and church.
On Feb. 3, community members are invited to St. Mark’s Open House to meet teachers, staff and tour the property. St. Mark’s open enrollment period begins that day.
“We look forward to National Lutheran Schools Week all year long,” said St. Mark’s principal Sue Templeton. “The kids really get into the activities and we’re excited to partner with Our Savior Lutheran for a day of fellowship, as well.
Throughout all the fun and games, we never lose sight of the meaning, though. This year’s theme focuses on Baptism, so we will continue to teach students about Jesus’ forgiveness of sins and eternal salvation. We will invite students to live in the freedom and comfort of Baptism and invite others to receive His gift of grace.”
