Jesus loves the little children! We are reminded He wants us all to come to him!
Let the little children come to me. Bring your family to worship this week!
As we journey through this Holy Week, may we set aside time to go to God’s house and worship. Bring your family to our Thursday, Friday, and Easter Sunday worship services. See you there!
We make our Resurrection Eggs on Tuesday! Students need an egg carton filled with 12 plastic (the ones that break open) eggs.

NEWS & NOTES
4th Quarter Begins
Q3 Report cards will be sent home tomorrow with all students. Please look them over with your child and contact your child’s teacher with any questions or concerns. Thanks!
Parents, please don’t send your child to school if they are showing any symptoms of sickness. Several illnesses, other than COVID, have been showing up here at Emanuel, and we want to do our best to continue to stay open. Unfortunately, many of the symptoms we’ve been seeing are similar to COVID-19 symptoms, which include fever/chills, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, or diarrhea. We do not want to inadvertently send someone home for a COVID test and have them quarantine until the results are back.
If your child is exhibiting any of these symptoms here at school, they will be sent home until they are symptom free. They also won’t be able to participate in athletics that day.
Thank you for your help in keeping our school healthy and open!
Emanuel will have Easter break from Thursday, April 1st - Monday, April 5th. School will resume on Tuesday, April 6th.
Join us for Holy Week Worship!
We invite you to worship with us this Holy Week. Services are available on-site, online, and on the radio. This year, we are offering additional service times on Maundy Thursday and Easter Sunday to help with social distancing. We also offer three Good Friday service times.
May God bless your family’s celebration of the resurrection! HE IS RISEN!
Volleyball Game Volunteers Needed - March 31st
We will need volunteers for the check in desk, game clock, and line judges. If you haven’t done these before, we will train you. Please click on this link to sign up for Wednesday’s game against Immanuel, Greenville. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Osterman; email@example.com.
Emanuel Annual Pizza-making Event (Tentative)
The leadership at Emanuel (both church and school) is exploring the feasibility and possibility of holding Emanuel’s annual pizza-making event on Saturday, May 15th. No firm decisions have been made at this time, but discussions are ongoing. COVID safety precautions would be in place, but a key component is the volunteers. In order for the day to happen at all, we need to ensure we have a firm commitment from our volunteers before orders would be collected. Volunteers can be 7th graders and older. Both a morning and afternoon shift would be implemented this year, with at least 70 volunteers needed for each shift.
Even if the decision is made to have the event, if we don’t have enough volunteers for the day, we will not be holding our pizza-making event this year.
If you are interested and willing to volunteer, please click the link below to sign up by Wednesday, April 14th. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/805084caaa623aaf94-pizza
