Very Proud of our RAMS! Thanks for a great season of Soccer.
The teachers enjoyed the Lutheran Educators Conference, and have all arrived home safely. We bring with us some new ideas and a renewed commitment to Christian education. After learning some new statistics about this generation of children, it is as important as ever to keep Christ in the center of all learning. It is critical to their eternal future.
WAY TO GO RAMS! our RAM soccer team has won their first playoff game under the direction of Coach Gerth. They will play again on Thursday with Mrs. Wilshire leading the way. GO RAMS.
Special thanks to the Student Council for an excellent family event on Friday. The Family 80's Dance was a a great hit, and a great support for the Dominican Republic mission opportunity. Funds will support the high school students traveling to the Dominican next year, as well as purchase the supplies they will need to do their work. This week is our RLS Max and Erman's night. Visit the Monroeville restaurant any time during the day on Thursday, Oct. 10 and present your RLS coupon. Proceeds will benefit the school.
We have had a great start to the new school year. We welcome several new families and new staff members. Our enrollment is up 10% from last year, and we still have spaces left in some of our classes. If you know a child who would benefit from a Christian education, please tell them about Redeemer.
The soccer team has begun their preparation for the new season, and their first game is next week. We are very happy to be able to have our home games on our campus this year! Go RLS RAMS!

Thank you to everyone who came out to our Back to School Night Event on Thursday. It was a great turnout, and so much was accomplished. Special thanks to the Mack family for donating mulch for the playground and landscaping. Our school looks great!
Thank you to all of those who attended the 18th annual golf outing. We did have a slow start due to the weather, but it cleared up and we were able to play most of the holes rain-free. We want to thank all of our sponsors, especially Concordia Lutheran Ministries and Thrivent Financial for Lutherans. This is one of our biggest fundraisers, and one of the most enjoyable. Thank you Mr.Buttgereit for organizing this event.
