The Gala Committee is in full swing planning this year's fund raiser, which is being held on Friday,
November 6, at the Shawano County Park.
The theme this year is Welcome Aboard the SS Crusader! We're sure it's going to be another night
of great food and fun (and bidding)! Information about the Gala was sent out in the beginning of
September to many local businesses and past supporters. If you didn't receive anything or have not
attended in the past, you can find everything attached to this week's
Crusader Chronicle. Tickets are available in the school or church
Donations for the classroom baskets have already started - with the
first one coming in on Open House night! That's awesome!
If you have any questions, feel free to contact Jenny Roloff via Fast
Hop Aboard the S.S. Crusader!
We would like to welcome another
New student to our school, Tanner Schmidt.

grade class. Tanner attended St. James previously,
and so we are happy to have him back once again!
Please help to make Tanner feel welcome!
HAPPY AUGUST BAPTISM BIRTHDAY’S
Each year at this time I am
asked how the enrollment for
our school is doing. This
year our enrollment is 157
students as compared to 161
at the end of the last school
year. If you remember, we
graduated a class of 31
eighth grade students in June
bringing us down to 126 students coming into this current school year. The ministry of our school has certainly been blessed by enrolling 29 new students this
year! We have a new kindergarten class of 21 students, and enrolled an additional 8 students in other
classrooms this year! Four
students from last year will
not be returning giving us a
retention rate of 98%. We
feel honored that parents
have chosen to send their
children to our school to receive their Christian education and we praise God for
