We need your help! The Reformation Renaissance Faire is this Saturday, Nov. 2 from 10 am to 6 pm, and we are in need of fifteen 10×10 pop-up canopy tents to use for the stations. If you have one that you would be willing to let us borrow, please drop it off at the school tomorrow afternoon. If you would like to volunteer to help during the fair, you can sign up here:


Book Fair

Slight change in plans, we will be up and running first thing on Monday at 8:00 am! Please share this information. We are going to be staying in Multipurpose rooms A & B the whole week, enter in the Multipurpose room A door. We get to set up in there for Saturday and stay up until the end. We will begin taking everything down at 4:30 pm on Friday.

The wish list forms for students and teachers will be by the cash register. Come with a pencil and clip board! 

As always, I will be pulling books that need to be pulled for various content reasons. That being said, there are a variety of books that are for ALL age levels. Please help your students to find age appropriate choices.

FYI: The new Diary of a Wimpy Kid book is not being released until TUESDAY, because of this it will not be shipped to us until Tuesday.

Hear Ye! Hear Ye!

You’ve seen the emails, you’ve heard the hype, but we need YOU to make it happen!ILCA families we have a great opportunity to reach out to the community with our upcoming Reformation Renaissance Faire fundraiser but we need YOUR help!

THIS SATURDAY, November 2nd!!

Instead of holding our Reformation Faire on a school day, we have moved it to a Saturday to make it bigger and better and reach more people. We are looking for adults and students to help run the ‘Life of Luther’ activities for children, as well as some other fun and exciting things.

All proceeds from the gate and other games/contests throughout the day benefit the Immanuel Lutheran Christian Academy’s Scholarship Fund! Help us raise much-needed funds while witnessing to the community and having a lot of fun.

Contact Lori Clark at or Carrie Ann Swaim at for more info or click HERE < >to sign up to bring items or volunteer for a shift (or more!!).  Let’s rally together Crusaders to make this the most fun, to make this the biggest Reformation Faire our school has ever had!

Need NHS, NJHS, or scholarship volunteer hours?  This will be the most fun you’ve ever had volunteering!

In Him and for the children,
Carrie Ann Swaim

Lost and Found!

Parents – stop in the main hallway and go through our lost and found tables.  We will have them set up for two days and then the remaining items will go into our school uniform closet or to the Salvation Army.
