CHANGE OF ADDRESS—PHONE--EMPLOYMENT: Did Santa get you a new phone, job, or house for Christmas? Please remember to update your information with the school office!

SCHOOL OFFICE—TAX STATEMENTS: If you would like a printout of your payments to First Lutheran during 2017 for tax purposes, you can print them off by logging into your FastDirect account, scroll down to the bar that says “2007 Tax Year Printout”, change the year to 2017, and click the box that has “Tax Year Printout” in it. Alternatively, you can request a tax statement from the office by calling 580-762-9950 or sending a FastDirect email request to Connie Erickson. This will include school-year expenses only; summer daycare tax statements must be requested from daycare by sending a FastDirect email to Heidi Daley or calling daycare at 580-762-1124. Not all payments to FLS are tax deductible; you should contact a tax advisor to find out what can be written off, and what cannot. SNOW DAY NOTIFICATION: In the event that school may be cancelled due to inclement weather, we follow Ponca City Public Schools schedule FOR WEATHER-RELATED CANCELLATIONS ONLY. Listen to your radio during the cancellation announcements, and if Ponca City Public Schools are cancelled, First Lutheran will be out, also; however, there will NOT be a separate announcement for First Lutheran. This only applies to weather-related cancellations; at all other times, follow the First Lutheran School Calendar. If you need a new calendar, go to, click on the “links” tab on the left, and then click on “2017-2018 Calendar”, or stop by the school office for a new one. TRIP TO CAMBODIA: In 2 weeks, several of our classes are going on an online trip to Cambodia to see how mission work is being done there by Lutherans. An offering box is being sent home with your child to help with this mission experience. Please return it with their offerings by the end of the month. BASKETBALL HOME GAME SEASON PASSES for Varsity and JV games are for sale in the office. They are $20 for adults, $15 for Senior Citizens/Church Members, and $10 for Students. SANTA TICKETS: Thank you to everyone who contributed their Santa Tickets this year…we collected over 2000 tickets! We were within 500 of several of the winning numbers, but unfortunately we did not win. We’ll try again next year! Thanks, again, for your donations!
