Grace students celebrate Lutheran Schools Week, Jan. 26-30

Grace School students will celebrate Lutheran Schools Week, Jan. 26-30, with special activities. It's a chance to try new things, serve the church and school, and have fun in the middle of the long grey winter months.

Events include visits from school alumni. Amy Gillespie, soon to receive her M.Div. degree from the Lutheran School of Theology in Chicago, will be the speaker at Wednesday morning’s 8:30am chapel service. Professional saxophonist Ben Schmidt-Schwarz will lead a jazz concert on Friday.

On Tuesday, students will be busy helping out with various volunteer projects that benefit the school, the congregation and the community. Monday they'll pose in the Grace sanctuary for an all-school photo.  On Thursday they'll test whether all of Grace's students holding hands can reach around the outside of the building.

Students will be wearing school colors (red and white) on Monday, favorite sports' team apparel on Tuesday, "future profession" costumes on Wednesday, "favorite book character" costumes on Thursday, and crazy hats and clashing clothing on Friday.
