Emanuel Athletics - 14 day quarantine
In coordination with FVL Schools and approved by the Emanuel School Board, Emanuel has adopted the option for a 10-day quarantine for its students. If a student follows all appropriate protocols, they may return to the classroom for learning on the 11th day. Participation in athletics will be slightly different. If that child is in basketball or cheer, they will not be allowed to return to practice/games until the 15th day.
Parents, a reminder regarding COVID testing. If a family member is being tested for COVID, all family members need to remain home until the results come back. Please notify Mrs. Eidenberger if your child will be out. With the positive numbers increasing, we need to ensure we take every precaution to keep our school healthy. Thank you for your help with this.
A call for our 6th grade position has been issued to Mr. Christopher Luebke. Please keep him in your prayers as he deliberates where the Lord can best use him.
Virtual Christmas Service DVDs
We’ll have one DVD per family, and you can request additional copies by contacting the office. Your child will be sent home with the DVD(s) on Monday, January 4th. The service has also been shared on our Facebook page and website.
Piano students will also have a separate Piano Recital DVD. Piano students will be sent home with their DVD(s) on Monday, January 11th.
We praise God that we were able to record the Christmas service when we were all still in person, and we are excited to share this special Christmas message with your family! All DVD copies will be free.
Tiger Cub Care
If you have any questions regarding your balance, please contact Mrs. Eidenberger at firstname.lastname@example.org. Mrs. Eidenberger will be emailing you with your balance owed. If you need a copy of your invoice, please let her know.
2020-21 2nd Quarter Mission Project
The kids c.a.r.e. project for 2020-2021 is the Children's Ministry Outreach.
When a mission church would like to begin a children’s ministry or start a childcare center or preschool, the lack of up front funds may prevent them from doing so. Our offerings will help mission churches start childcare centers or preschools, which can then form a “natural bridge” to bring the good news to more families who do not yet know our Savior.
Text Payments for School Fees, Lunches and Tiger Cub Care: You can now pay for your school fees, student lunches and Tiger Cub Care fees by texting “EmanLuth School'' to the number 73256, then follow the prompts on your phone. You may also click on the link at elstigers.org and emanuelnl.org.
