June Salem School News
Preschool classes are almost full. Classes are filled on a first come, first served basis. You have the choice of which days you would like your child to come. There’s a minimum attendance of 3 half days up to 5 full days. The cost is $30 for half day, $40 for a full day. Tours will be scheduled individually for those interested. If you have any questions you can call 651-439-7831 and talk to Jane Grobe. If you know of any 2-4 year olds looking for a preschool, please refer them to our website salemlutheran.org for registration information and for requesting a tour.

Registration Packet for the New School Year
We are currently working on all the information our families will need to start the new school year. This will include things like busing info, lunch fees, band registration, piano registration, volunteer opportunities and more! Preschool students will be notified as to the classroom they have been assigned to as well. Please watch for this information that we hope to be able to share by the end of June or early in July. New families to Salem may have questions before then. Please feel free to reach out to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions you may have!
Salem is going to have some changes amongst its staff next year. Mrs. Klatt will be staying home with baby Ivy and not teaching Kindergarten next year. Mrs. Stob will not be teaching in the middle school next year either. Allison and Luke Dorn have accepted calls to teach at Salem. Allison will teach Kindergarten, and Luke will be teaching English, Literature and Spelling in the Middle School as well as Music Director. We pray for them as they finish their year in Florida and are excited for them to join us in Minnesota.
Heidi Kostrzewa will also be leaving the Salem family as she is marrying a seminary student who will be vicaring next year. We have called to fill her position. Michelle Stob has accepted the call to teach 2nd grade at Salem next year. We pray for her as she makes this transition and rejoice that she will continue to be a part of the Salem Staff.
New Website Design Coming!
We are currently working on a new website design to help our families stay informed of the latest school news. We are hoping it will make it easier to find information when needed. We will keep you posted on when this new format will be rolled out for every one to start using!
Please use this 2022-2023 Academic Calendar for the upcoming school year. We will notify you in advance of any changes that need to be made to this calendar throughout the school year. You may also check our Google School Calendar for events and dates as well.

The School Board approved a program that gives an incentive to recruiting new families for our school. If a family who has children enrolled refers a new family to Salem, they will receive a $200 tuition credit at Christmas per family they have referred. A church family who refers a new family will receive a $200 script gift card also at Christmas per family if they so choose. There is no limit to the number of families you can refer. If you have any more questions about the program, speak to a School Board member or Mr. Klatt.

This will cover the shipping and administrative fees involved in the orders. You can also apply your profits to your child's lunch account as well as tuition. We have also added an option to direct your profits to church. You will need this code to have your purchase linked to our account: 2241AD6C14415. Contact the church office for more information.
One way we usually forget about how we can help our school and church is to pray for them throughout the year. Your prayers are always a blessing and it is great to know that you are asking God for his blessings in our school and church year.
