Friday, May 26th

  • LAST DAY OF SCHOOL – Students dismissed at NOON!!!!!
    • There will be no buses running at noon, so all families will need to make arrangements for their child to get picked up that day.
  • SCHOOL PICNIC – Begins at 11:00
    • All families are invited to attend. Those adults that are coming are asked to bring a dish to pass. (salads, chips, jello, desserts, other picnic food, etc.)  Meat and beverages will be provided.  We will serve food from the parish hall and eat outside if the weather permits.
    • PICNIC HELPERS: We have a yearly rotation for this. This year the parents of students in grades 5 & 6 are asked to serve as our setup and serving committee.  We ask these people to arrive around 10:30.  Parents of students in grades 3 & 4 are asked to serve as the clean- up crew after the picnic is over.  Thank you in advance for helping with this event.


Wednesday, May 31st  –

  • Parent-Teacher Conferences – 3:00-7:00
    • These meetings are held to hand out report cards, discuss the results of the standardized testing done this spring (grades 3 – 8), and discuss the overall progress of your child throughout the past school year.




Food Drive Information

The Outreach Committee of Peace Lutheran Church has invited the students to participate in a food drive in support of the Green Lake County Food Pantry.  The food drive will begin on Monday, May 1st and run through Friday, May 5th.  Students should bring their items to their classroom.  The Outreach Committee will be providing a prize for the classroom who collects the most items.  Listed below are the items that are being requested:

  • Peanut butter
  • Tuna
  • Soups
  • Pastas
  • Canned fruit
  • Paper products
  • Please – NO canned vegetables.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call school.  Thank you for your support of

this project.


Release Form

Next week Wednesday, a bright orange piece of paper will come home with your child.  It is a release form to use pictures of your child or you on the Peace Lutheran School website and Facebook page.  We ask that each family return the forms to school by Friday, May 5th.  This form will serve for the remainder of the school year.  We will then send a new one with registration materials in the summer that will cover next school year.

We are hoping to keep our website and Facebook page updated as a means of promoting our school to others out there looking for a school for their children.  Thank you.


Start of School – Fall, 2017

Just a piece of information for those planning summer trips, etc. – The 2017-2018 school year at Peace will begin on Wednesday, August 23rd.  A full calendar will be sent with registration materials in July.  If you would like to know any other dates, please feel free to contact Mr. Stoltz.   Thank you.
