From Church Council


Fellow members of Salem, As many of you may know, Salems fiscal year runs from July 1 to June 30. As we approach the end of this current fiscal year, we find that we are behind on our budget. The Congregation approved a balanced budget, but we are running a deficit and our Finance Board projects the deficit will be $23,000 by the close of the fiscal year. All parties have done their utmost to hold down expenses, both in setting the budget and in paying attention to what has actually been incurred. The expenses are not the cause of our deficit, the reason for the deficit is that our current year offerings/contributions are lagging by a projected amount of $32,000. We anticipated only a very modest increase in offerings from the 2011-12 year to 2012-13, but this years contributions are actually running behind last years amounts. In order to get the budget into balance by June 30, we are going to have to raise that extra $23,000. We want to bring this to your attention. We ask that you prayerfully consider if you are in a position to make any additional contributions, no matter how small, to help us to reach our budget goal. Please continue to pray for Salems ministry, and that with Gods blessing, we will resolve our budget issues. Thank you.

We have two brief reminders about Holy Communion distribution at Salem. First, children who accompany their parents to the altar to receive a blessing may cross their arms as a sign that they are not receiving the Sacrament. Second, those who wish to receive the common chalice may extend open hands as a sign that they have not received an individual cup. Thank you for your cooperation! 1

Sunday Bible Study Opportunities


Study on 1 Corinthians Pauls first letter to the Corinthians shows that sin is rebellion against God and that Gods grace is the only cure for sin. He instructs the Corinthians that Christs death on the cross is the atonement for our sins and insures our forgiveness. Join Woody Babb at 9:30 am in the Fellowship Hall from April 7-28 as he leads this 4-week study on 1 Corinthians. A Closer Look: Digging into the Scriptures Every week, this study will focus on the same lesson and topic as the Sunday School, but with life application for adults. This approach encourages growing in faith as a family by allowing each member to discuss what they learn in Sunday School. It helps reinforce the lesson for everyone! Dont have a child in Sunday School? No problem! This study also serves as a refresher course for those who have studied these lessons before or as a great introductory course for new students of the Bible. We meet every Sunday at 9:30 am and beginning April 7th, we will move back to the 7th grade classroom. The upcoming study topics will be: April 28 Jesus Sends the Seventy-two (Luke 10:124)

SCHOOL NEWS
Week-at-a-Glance April 28-May 5, 2013
Third Grade Focus Weekend The third graders and Mrs Rudsinski have been keeping busy. We just completed our Wax Museum project where we researched a famous person, did a report, and acted like that person in a wax museum. We had over 200 students and parents come through. It was fun, and we learned much about some famous people. Did you know that Milton Hershey had a ticket on the Titanic, but didnt go because his wife was sick? We wonder if we would have Hershey bars today if he made that fateful trip. We are looking forward to our Farmsteading Field Trip where we will work as student did in the 1800s. On this trip, we will be cooking our own food, chopping wood, making candles, and various other jobs. Out class also has a field trip planned to Fitzs Bottling company where we will see how root beer is made and learn a little about the history of St. Louis. On Wednesday, May 15th, we will also welcome 3rd graders from 4 other Lutheran schools for our annual Third Grade Trivia day. That day we will test our knowledge and also have fun with the other third grade students. In 3rd grade, we learn our multiplication facts and also how to write in cursive. In the next few weeks we will begin our pencil project where we make our own business decorating and selling pencils. A lady form Montgomery Bank came to talk to us about how important it is to save our money. Our teacher is Mrs. Rudsinski. She has been teaching in Lutheran Schools for 27 years. 24 of which have been at Salem. For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11 Kathy Brown, fourth grade teacher at Salem Lutheran School, in Affton, was awarded the Jeremiah Award from Lutheran Association for Special Education (LASE) on April 17, 2013 in a ceremony in front of the entire student body. The Jeremiah Award is presented to a general education teacher who has gone above and beyond to meet the unique education needs of students in the classroom, especially those students with disabilities. Kathy is the first recipient of the award from LASE, an educational service agency that partners with Lutheran schools in the St. Louis area to meet the educational needs of children with disabilities and special needs. Lori Christiansen, LASE Executive Director presented the award to Kathy for excellence in inspiring students to become lifelong learners, for her collaborative efforts with LASE special education teachers, and for giving her students hope and a future.

Kindergarten
We have had a busy spring! We have been learning about life cycles. We even went to the zoo and learned about the life cycles of an owl, toad and a millipede. We are hatching chicken eggs and are eagerly waiting for them to begin hatching. While we were at the zoo we saw that there were penguins sitting on their own eggs waiting for them to hatch. The class has been working all year to improve their literacy skills or as they say it their reading. It is so cool to have them reading to me during the day. They still love to hear stories but they are taking a lot of pride in their reading also. Their writing skills have improved greatly. The students are working on putting works together to make complete thoughts that are meaningful to them. Here are a few of the kindergarteners thoughts on what we are doing now We are waiting for our chicks to hatch. We have a brood for our chicks when they hatch. We will protect them. We work on math. We have been doing hard work writing our numbers 11 30. We have nap time. We have been working hard on how to learn to read better. We work on Working on Words and Working on Writing and Read to Self everyday! We have been working on how to read. We like reading a lot. We try to work our brains to learn. We are trying to work our way to first grade. Eighth Grade
Dear Members and Friends of Salem Lutheran Church and School, We wanted to take this time to say Thank you! We appreciate all of the support that we receive from our church and school family. We have been working very hard since this summer to raise 11

money to take our class trip to Florida and you all have really helped us out and have been so generous! The class is so excited for the trip in May. But in order to go on this trip there are some requirements that have to be met. We must display a high level of respect and responsibility while we are at school. By doing this, we build the trust of our teachers and the chaperones that are taking us on our trip. Some of the ways we have shown this at school is by taking care of the paper recycling every week for all of the school classrooms, being chapel buddies to the pre-school children, ushering during school chapel services, raising and lowering the flag each day, leading the morning prayers and pledges for the school as KGOD announcers, acolyting at church, and setting up tables and chairs as needed for different events. We also are team leaders for our monthly School Theme Team Meetings. Our teams meet together th (Pre-school through 8 grade mixed groups) every month and do an activity together to learn about th the theme for the month. The 8 graders all practice leading the activities in our classroom and then we help the team teacher lead it for the group. It gives us a chance to interact with and help all the younger students and hopefully set a good example. Another requirement that we have is to be a good student. This means keeping up with our homework and having grades that reflect our true abilities. We meet with our homeroom teacher every two weeks to go over our grades and discuss improvements if necessary. When we go to Florida, we do many fun and exciting things! We take a bus and drive all night to arrive at New Smyrna Beach in the morning. After we leave the beach, we head to Kennedy Space Center. Here we tour the museum and grounds and take another bus out to the viewing tower to see where the Space Shuttles have lifted off. Then we finally head to our hotel. During the rest of the week we visit Epcot where we travel around the world, Magic Kingdom, Universal Studios, and Sea World. We are thankful that our school allows us to go on this exciting trip. For many of us, this is the first time we have ever visited these places. Throughout this trip we learn how to manage our own money, cooperate together in groups and look out for one another, conduct ourselves in a positive Christian manner, and meet deadlines and requirements on time. Every day begins and ends with Bible readings, devotions, and prayer time and we grow closer as a group through these activities. We have raised money during the school year to cover the costs of our trip. This is also a way for us to gain an understanding of the value of special events such as this class trip. Again, we thank you for your support and ask that you keep us in your prayers. We hope that through this letter you have learned more about us and our class trip! Gods blessings to you all! Sincerely, Mrs. Lisa Rivers and the 8 Grade Class 12

******************************************************************************************************** Former Salem pastor, Rev. Mike Scholz has accepted a call to serve Lamb of God Lutheran Church and School in Las Vegas, NV. His last day at Luther Memorial in River Falls, WI will be Sunday May 26. ******************************************************************************** Salem Lutheran Church and School is blessed with a wonderful staff and lay leaders who make our church and school a special place to serve the Lord Jesus Christ. One of the great treasures we enjoy at Salem is gathering each Saturday and Sunday for services in Gods house. Christ feeds our staff and leaders with his Word and the Lords Supper so they can continue caring for the spiritual and material needs of his people. For our staff and leaders, worship with their families in church is a special time of the week. If you have an urgent spiritual need, they are always ready to help in any way they can. But if the need is less pressing or requires extended time to address, please consider speaking with our staff or lay leaders at a time other than the Saturday evening or Sunday morning service. This will allow them to preserve this precious time in Gods house with their families for worship, prayer, and praise. Thank you for your consideration ****************************************************************************************************** Congratulations and Gods blessings to Sarah Sprague, who is graduating from Concordia University Nebraska (Seward, NE); and Pam Tosie, who is graduating from Concordia University Chicago.
