Teacher Assistant Positions at WLS
Wisconsin Lutheran School will be filling two teacher aid positions for the coming school year. One position will be at the Early Childhood Campus (ECC) on Bate Street and will serve students in grades K4, one, and two. This assistant will be needed six hours each day. The second position will be at the Middle School (MS) on Grand Avenue and will serve students in grades six through eight. This assistant will be needed for four hours each day. The pay for both positions (depending on background, education, and experience) will range from ($10 to $15 per hour). The responsibilities are to become a second pair of hands for the teacher and learn to anticipate what the teachers need. In addition the assistant will support the learning in the classroom by interacting with the students when they are struggling, helping the teacher maintain a good learning atmosphere. Each group of teachers will develop additional specific daily tasks and expectations. If you are interested in the position, please fill out an application found at the south bulletin board, and submit it to Paul Patterson at email@example.com or drop it off at the Middle School office early this week.
Outdoor Summer Fellowship next Sunday
Our last Outdoor Fellowship Gathering this summer will take place next Sunday between services (9-9:40am) outside in front of church (weather permitting). Please stay awhile and enjoy fellowship along with coffee & treats! To help supply treats, please contact Jim Pieper.
No Monday Night Worship on Labor Day

To Sew and Socialize
The Sewing Circle has decided to continue meeting on a weekly basis. However, the group will now meet on Thursdays and at a new time from 10am-2pm (or come when you can and leave when you must within this timeframe). If you’re not a quilter, there is an alternative. ALL sewers are encouraged to bring their knitting, embroidery, or any needle work from home and come join the socializing. Bring a bag lunch; coffee is provided. Our first Thursday meeting will be on August 28th
