God bless America!
Who sings this Sunday, Feb. 17th? Choristers sing during the 8:15 AM service and grades 5 & 6 sing in the 10:45 AM service. Please note that this Sunday both services will be held in the school gymnasium to coincide with the Building Fund Recommitment.
A school open house will follow the gym services to allow you time to walk through the school and view some of the things our children are doing here at Atonement. We hope to see all of you this Sunday.
Grades 3 & 4 sing during next Wednesday's Lenten Vesper at 7:00 PM. Mid-week Lenten services help us prepare our hearts and minds for Jesus' walk through Holy Week and Easter.
2002 - 2003 School Enrollment
Atonement Lutheran School's enrollment period runs March 6th - 20th.
What is the center of the Atonement Lutheran School spiritual partnership between the home, the school and the church? Regular worship attendance brings all that we teach into focus. For this reason God includes regular worship as one of the Ten Commandments and emphasizes it as a priority in our Christian lives. The application of this principle is a part of preparing for enrollment. As the school board reviews enrollment requests from new families, they study the worship patterns of present families. Two grades are at the class size limit of 26. One factor which will be strongly considered in determining enrollment is worship attendance. Please be aware of this issue as we fast approach the enrollment period of March 6 - 20.
The Milwaukee Parental School Choice enrollment for Atonement is March 1st - 20th. All new families must meet with Principal Schafer.

The second annual Atonement Lutheran School Grandparents' Luncheon will be held in the gym on Wednesday, March 20th at 11:30 AM. The oldest child from every school family should bring home a packet containing a letter stapled to two reservation forms. We would like to recognize the many contributions made by grandparents and significant seniors in the lives of our children. Students may invite up to four grandparents for the event. The reservation form must be turned in by March 13th to allow us plenty of time to plan and purchase food.
We will need parents to help plan, prepare and serve the lunch. If you can help, please let Mr. Schafer know.
We look forward to another fun and successful luncheon.
