We are nearing the end of this amazing, unusual, demanding school year. Thank you so much for the many ways you have jumped in to support Christian education at home! We know this hasn’t been easy.
This rapid start of distance learning has taught all the adults involved just as much as the students as we learned new software, new ways to communicate, and a new way to have school at home.
And now the school year is over. We are ending the year without the usual end of the year activities, and that makes the year feel incomplete. There are some good memories for us though: teachers reading books online, teacher videos, sharing jokes in emails and chats, online chapel and devotions, and Zoom gatherings. These were not part of our plans, but God has guided and directed us through the changes.
As we end this school year, we start thinking about next year. What will school look like in August? Our priority is to have the students together in person respecting the restrictions that may be necessary at that time. While no one knows just how that will be accomplished, we are committed to providing the best Christian education possible for our students. The school board and the staff will work with the county health departments, local school districts, and the Michigan District office of Lutheran Schools to make decisions and plans for possible scenarios (in person classes, distance learning, or a combination of the two.) Throughout the summer we will keep you informed of the progress of those decisions and plans.
Thank you again for all that you have done for Concordia this year. I look forward to seeing all of you in person on registration day in August. Enjoy this spring weather while we Live Joyfully . . . in Christ.

News From Your School
Mr. Hoeft, 7th & 8th grade teacher and athletic director
The school year is moving so fast here at Concordia. We are getting close to the end of the 3rd quarter. Where has the time gone?! The 7th & 8th grade class has been a lot of fun to teach this year. These eleven students are a very helpful and hard-working bunch!
This past week we celebrated National Lutheran Schools Week. We started the week last Sunday with an all-school sing at Hosanna-Tabor. Throughout the week, the students had special dress-up days which included PJ day, crazy hair/mismatch day, college/sports team day, school spirit day, and movie/book character day. We celebrated with VIP Day on Wednesday where students brought their VIP (Very Important Person) to school with them. On Thursday, both campuses went to the DIA and enjoyed some fine art. It was an awesome week celebrating our Lutheran School!
The girls basketball season is in full swing. The girls have been working hard and have been progressing all season long. The Knights are 1-6 (1-2 in the WLAL) on the season and have two more games this coming week plus the end of the season WLAL tournament on March 21. Keep up the hard work, ladies!
Thank you for your continued support of Concordia Lutheran School. We are so blessed to have such loving congregations who support our mission!
