“For we are God’s workmanship created in Christ Jesus to do good works which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10

Thoughts from the Principal…

     I started teaching in a Lutheran School in 1986.  I was thinking about that this morning as I was getting ready to come to school.  Here are some the things I thought about:

     Most of the worksheets were run off on a mimeograph machine (I think that is what it was called).  It was this purple ink thing that smeared and smudged. A vast majority of the worksheets were handwritten. But it got the job done.

     I had a typewriter and so did the secretary.  Along with the typewriter came the little white correction thing. Maybe you remember that.

     We used carbon paper.

     I used a filmstrip projector, a slide projector, opaque projector, and a reel to reel movie projector.  VCR’s with VHS or Beta tapes were just being introduced.

     There was a paddle hanging in the principal’s office.  I saw it used once during that school year.

     I could probably continue with more.  But I want to talk about what hasn’t changed.  God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.  His love for us is the same and sharing that love in Lutheran Schools has not wavered.  Whether it be 35 years ago or today, Lutheran Schools exist to provide excellence in education with Christ at the center.  

     Thank you for sending your child(ren) to St. Paul Lutheran School.  May we continue to partner with you as we move into the future.  I pray that God continues to bless our school and the families that are so precious to us.  May He also bless each of you as you enjoy the summer months.  We will be here for you in the fall.  

     Talk to you then…………
