IS SPRING FINALLY HERE?
By the time May comes, you kind of expect that winter is over. After the April that we just had, I’m not so sure. We hope that spring is finally here and we can enjoy all the activities that go with the end of another school year.
One of the highlights of the last month of the school year at Immanuel in Greenville is the presentation of the school musicals. This takes place on Friday, May 4 at 9 AM (with fellowship beforehand) and 6:30 PM. The K-3 students will be performing the musical Squirm. As you might guess, it is about all the creepy crawly little friends that we can find in the garden. The students in grades 4-8 will present Go West which tells the story of the effort to settle the American west. All are invited to come and enjoy these presentations.
Fox Valley Lutheran High School has a number of musical offerings for you to enjoy this month. On Wednesday, May 9 at 6:30 PM, the students will take place in the spring Frolic talent show. This night of entertainment also includes the crowning of the prom king. On Sunday, May 13 at 6:00 PM, all the vocal and instrumental acts of FVL will be presenting their final concert of the year in the FVL auditorium. The final, final concert will actually take place on the Tuesday of that week (May 15) at 7:00 PM when the Jazz Ensemble and Choraliers will be having their concert. The final, final, final FVL musical presentation for the school year will be on Monday, May 28 at 9:00 AM when the FVL marching band will be performing in the Appleton Memorial Day parade.
Speaking of Memorial Day, there will be a ceremony for Memorial Day on Sunday, May 27 at 11:45 AM in the Ellington Union Cemetery. This ceremony includes poems, songs, and patriotic readings. The highlight is the laying of a wreath on the grave of a local veteran.
FVL has its graduation service on Saturday, May 26 at 10 AM and Immanuel has its service on Thursday, May 24 at 7 PM.
Finally, please note that we will be trying to finish up our Bible class on the life and work of Martin Luther in our classes after our worship services.
