The past few weeks the students in grades 5-8 have been participating in a Punt, Pass, and Kick competition. This past Friday the students pictured (Isaiah, Ava, Jack, and Rinlee) represented our school at the LALSAC Punt, Pass, and Kick competition at Luther High School. Ava was our highest finisher in second place.
This week our cross country season wraps up. Our runners will participate in the Chileda Classic at Maple Grove Venues on Monday, and on Thursday they will run in the Ole Olmstead Invitational here in Lewiston at the golf course. There is an elementary race at 4:15 on Thursday for any students in grades 1-6 that wish to participate. No registration is required.
A Visit to the Apple Orchard
This past week our PreK-4th graders went to Ferguson's Apple Orchard in Centerville, WI for a field trip. The children listened to a presentation about how the apple trees grow and explored in the orchard to pick their own apple. The children were given free time to play on the farm in the corn pit, slides, pedal tractors, animal barn, and a corn maze. The students and teachers had a fun time together!
LALSAC Flag Football
Five of our 5-8 grade boys recently participated in flag football at Luther High School with other boys from LALSAC schools. They were divided into teams, practiced, and then had time to play a few games. There will be another flag football event at Luther High on October 16. Contact Mrs. Weishalla if your son is interested in participating.
Luther High Band
Mr. Witte and Mr. Baures from Luther High School were at St. John's today to talk to the 4th and 5th graders about the Luther Elementary School Band program. The 4th and 5th graders had the chance to try a clarinet, flute, trumpet, and tuba. The students each received information and registration information for this coming school year. The band program is open to all 5-8 graders at St. John's. Contact Mr. Witte, email@example.com, or Mr. Baures, firstname.lastname@example.org, for more information.
LALSAC Volleyball Tournament
This past weekend both of our volleyball teams competed in the LALSAC volleyball tournaments at Luther High School. The B-Girls placed second in their tournament. The A-Girls had some tough matches along the way, but ended up victorious in the championship match vs. St. Paul's, Onalaska. We thank Coaches Mueller and Dorn for the dedication of their time to coaching the girls this season. To God alone be the glory!
