Thank you for all the gifts! This is our team on Christmas Day dispensing roasted chicken, spaghetti, and tortillas to the beach and K55 families that come to church.    ************************************************************* Peace and Togetherness at Christmas in Mahahual
A Savior is born for us and everyone! That's the meaning of Christmas anywhere you go. Gathering as believers around the peace of Jesus is one of the highlights of the year for all of us!

In our community Christmas may be extra meaningful in some ways. Some come to Mahahual only to work and are far from family and friends. Many have hectic schedules in tourism employment. A good number of our neighbors are disconnected from their faith life.

Round 3 of MLC Meet Math Competition

Our middle school students recently finished the second round of the Martin Luther College Meet Math competition. Students worked on six competition level math problems.

Our Salem fifth and sixth-grade students are in the B-5 category, and our seventh and eighth-grade students are in the A-6 category. Categories are determined by school size.

The final test date this school year is February 24.

Meet Math is a service club at Martin Luther College that provides mathematics contests for students in grades 5-12 who are enrolled in WELS or ELS schools. This club also maintains school and individual statistics that are the basis for various awards presented at the end of the school year.

K-8 Tuition Model Change Announcement

Salem’s School Board is asking that all families who will be enrolling or re-enrolling in K-8 fill out the TADS financial aid piece for the coming school year. The School Board is planning on slowly changing our tuition model. If you would like more information on what this new model looks like we will have two sessions to explain the change this coming Sunday (1/19) after both services and next Wednesday (1/22) at 4pm. Both sessions will be held in the church sanctuary. We will have teachers watching children in the gym during the Wednesday session. It should only take 10 minutes for the explanation and a Q&A will follow.

The only change to you this year is that we are asking you to fill out TADS financial aid. There will be no increase or change to the tuition other than the typical 3% for next year. This will drop your tuition from the $7000 it takes to educate your child down to the member or nonmember tuition rates. If you don’t fill out TADS, you are obligating yourself to p…
