Experience Concordia Day - Friday, November 30, from 12:00-2:45

8th graders: You will stay for lunch, participate in chapel, and engage in several activities led by the high school faculty and students.

But don’t come by yourself! We are looking to grow Concordia, so invite one or more friends who will be going into 9th grade next school year. If your friend comes to Concordia Day, you can pick from a gift card pool. In addition, those students’ names will be entered in a drawing for a larger prize!

What are you waiting for? Let’s get the word out!

Mrs. Acuña has postcards with Concordia Day information to hand out to your friends and family.


Our Marimbas group will be performing at the Lutheran Church of Paul’s annual Thanksgiving fellowship dinner for the parish on Saturday, November 17, at 4:45.
