Chapel Leader - Pastor KErns
Bible Verse - Jeremiah 23, psalm 139
Pastor Kerns began with the question, where is God. The answer is he is everywhere which is referred to as omnipresent. We then turn to Psalm 139. In Psalm 139 we heard that God is everywhere we could possibly go. In he Old Testament, during the time of Jeremiah there were false prophets that told people they could find all they need to know about God in nature, or in their own sinful hearts. However the true place we find God is in His word and sacraments.
Please join us for chapel on Wednesday, September 11th at 8:15am
Our chapel leader will be Pastor Jake, from Faith lutheran church

2nd-8th grade MAP Testing
TLS utilizes MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) testing as one way to track student growth throughout the year (starting in 2nd grade up to 8th grade).
We will be taking the MAP Growth (Reading, Language, & Math) at the beginning, middle, and end of the year. The test is computer based and adapts to each student to then provide teachers with data on each student’s strengths and areas of growth. We will be testing in 3 sessions over the next 3 weeks. Please make sure your student is well rested and eats a good breakfast, so they are able to do their best. If you have questions or are interested in learning more about MAP you can find info here: https://www.nwea.org/parent-toolkit/
