Sunday, November 12th at 3:00, students must be to church by 2:45, dress nicely but not too “fancy”. Play performers will NOT need to be in their costumes. All grades will meet in the front of church and sit with their classes.

K-4 will change into their costumes during intermission.

Preschoolers and 5-8 may go sit with their family at intermission. After intermission the front pews can be used for families.


We will be doing a bake sale again during intermission of the play on November 12th. We ask that each school family bring in either a dozen cookies, a 9x13 pan of UNCUT bars, or an UNCUT pie (please no nuts/peanuts).

These will need to be brought to the church basement the day of the play.

We will be selling them for $1 apiece, remember to bring your cash with you!


Thursday, November 16th is our annual Forensics meet down at MLC in New Ulm. Forensics meets are basically speech tournaments; the upper graders will perform a demonstration, interpretive reading, storytelling, or group drama that will be judged.

Please let us know if you’d be willing to chauffer and chaperone, we will be leaving Immanuel around 1:30. The meet begins at 3:00 and will not be done until the evening – please plan accordingly. We will be eating supper in the MLC cafeteria before leaving the campus.


Calendars for December, January, and February have been sent home this week. Please fill them out and return no later than next Wednesday, November 15th so we may schedule appropriately.


Letters and brochures have been sent home with a child from each family. Please do your best in the next week or two to hand these out to local businesses or community members. Thank you for your help!



PRESCHOOL: Miss Lokensgard

We have been busy practicing our songs in our classroom and at church for Sunday.

This week Miss Nikki is a student teaching in our room. She is teaching us all about Native Americans and the Pilgrims. We are focusing on the letter Pp for pilgrims and the shape rectangle. We are also working on counting to 7 and using our fingers to show the number 7.

On Wednesday we made Indian corn with Lego pieces and paint. We also had a fun game of finding the pilgrim hidden around the room.

Our bible story this week is God Chooses Moses. For our bible activity we glued on red tissue paper on a bush to make it look like fire; how Moses talked to the fiery bush. Our memory verse this week is “I will be with you” Exodus 3:12.

K-1st: Mrs. Eckstrand

Our Bible lesson this week is God Chooses Moses. We learned that after growing up in the pharaoh's palace, Moses became a shepherd. While in the fields he saw a bush that was burning, but not burning up. It was God in the bush. God chose Moses to lead His people out of Egypt. Moses did not want to go. God Promised to help Moses and be with him. He also gave him some miracles to help him. God sent Aaron with Moses also to help. Our memory treasure helps remind us that God has chosen us too! Mark 16:15 "Go into all the world and preach the good news".

Kindergarten: We met Doc in reading. She loves to fix broken toys. We will focus on the /d/ sound at the beginning and end of words. In Math, we are working with hexagons, position words, and patterns.

First: Our reading has us exploring /wh/ some more and answering the questions, who, where, what. We will meet Ben in his shop. Our next spelling list will begin looking at the -th digraph. In Math we are adding 3 numbers, telling if 2 equations are equal, and then turning our equations up and down to gain a little more speed.

We've been putting in lots of extra time on our musical. It's going to be great.

We were still able to learn about Veterans Day coming on Saturday for Social studies.

We'll explore the inside of apples for science also.

2-4th: Mrs. Ungemach

This week in Word of God, we have taken a step away from Moses to spend some time studying the 5th commandment and what that means in the lives of 2-4 graders. Honoring God by being kind to others with our words and actions is something that we all struggle with and can pray for the strength to do it.

In math, 2nd graders will be working with numbers up to 1,000. 3rd grade will be starting division this week! 4th grade will be working on steps to help them understand the multiplication algorithm.

2nd grade is doing a research paragraph this week in language arts. They got to choose between researching a Komodo dragon, arctic fox, barn owl, or blue whale.

3-4 is learning about the characters while reading a picture book about the Native American, Squanto. They are also learning about regular/irregular verbs and helping verbs.

In Science, we are studying physical and chemical changes that can happen with matter.

So much time and effort has been put into the words, songs, and costumes for the musical this week! Come and see all of the kids' hard work this Sunday!

5-8th: Mr. Holz

Hello Parents, Family and Friends

In Math, 5th Graders are working through division problems where you divide by a two-digit number. 6th Graders are working on dividing decimals. 7th Graders are working on review to prepare for their next test. 8th Graders working on conversions, ratios and proportions.

In Geography we will soon be wrapping up the 50 states and having a final test of all 50.

In Music the students are working through new hand chime songs and reviewing the Salute to the Armed forces Medley.

In Science we are working on a unit about plant development.

In Grammar we are continuing to work on prepositions and are now moving into verb phrases and direct objects.

In Writing we are working on writing our forensic presentations.

In Reading we have selected two novels that we will work on. 5-6th Grade will be reading “Hatchet” by Gary Paulsen. So far, they have read through Chapter 11 and are working on their reading packets. 7-8th will be reading “Lord of the Flies” by William Golding. This week they are reading through the 8th Chapter.
