March 2014 Redeemer Lutheran School 1955 E. Stratford Ave. Salt Lake City, UT 84106

FROM THE DESK OF MRS. BARENBRUGGE Long Range Plan


This is an exciting time at Redeemer Lutheran School. We recently held a long range planning meeting with a small group of school parents and church members. The group has some great ideas for the future of Redeemer. We looked at some strategies to create a sustainable funding plan to keep the school moving forward. We also felt it was important to find a way to add back 7th and 8th grade permanently. As we solidify this plan, please be patient. We will be publishing the draft of the plan in the next month. Look for a meeting to be held on March 21 st at 6:30 p.m. here at Redeemer, right before the musical performance. Please plan to attend.

In order to give families a longer time to make re-enrollment decisions, the deadline for re-enrollment has been extended until April 1, 2014.

Mrs. Barenbrugge
All students will be participating in our school wide Science Fair on Monday, March 3 from 6:307:30pm. We invite you to come and see the many creative and informative projects done by our students.

Redeemers first grade class is sponsoring an ant -idling campaign. We would like your help to reduce idling. Did you know that if everyone in the United States stopped idling for five minutes a day, it would be equivalent to taking five hundred thousand cars off the road and saving one point six million tons of CO2? By turning your engine off when parked for more than 10 seconds, you will save money by reducing fuel use. You will breathe easier by preventing unhealthy exhaust from building up in and around your car, and you will protect the blue sky by reducing idling emissions that contribute to smog, because 10 seconds of idling uses more fuel than restarting your engine. To learn more go to www.idlefree.utah.gov.

Remember to Turn your key and be idle free!


We will be running an Idle-Free campaign for the month of March.

Help clean up our air!
