NEW FAMILY REFERRALS As we prepare for our primary recruitment time, we rely on our current families to help bring in prospective families. All families received an Open House postcard invitation last week and we are asking that you pass it on to a prospective family. More postcards are available in both school offices. There is also an Inquiry Form on the website (under Prospective Families), which can be used to submit a prospective family's contact information. Current families that refer a prospective family will be entered into a drawing for a Sendik's gift card. Congratulations to the Boyle family for winning the latest gift card. Any questions, please contact Laura Rowe. Thank you!

MASS HELPERS FOR CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK We are asking for student volunteers to distribute Open House invites to parishioners after all Masses on Jan. 21 & 22. We are also in need of school families to serve as greeters and bring up the gifts during all Masses during the kick-off to Catholic Schools Week on Jan. 28 & 29. The form to volunteer is on the website under Headlines. All volunteers will receive a small token of appreciation for their time. We appreciate your help as we showcase our school to the Parish. Thank you!!

SHOUT! ADVERTISE! UNDERWRITE! Check out the Thursday folder this week to see how you can help support Shamrock 2012. In addition to advertising and underwriting, you can also order a Shamrock "Shout Out". Shout outs are a fun way to share your message with others attending Shamrock. Shout outs are a 2 line message that will be published in the catalog and on the Shamrock website. And the $20 donation supports our school by offsetting some of the costs of Shamrock. See the flyer in the Thursday folder or visit for examples. Let's have a little fun with this! Questions - contact Kim Althaus at 262-242-1963 or

PARENTS ASSOCIATION... All are welcome. Meetings are held the second Tuesday of every month in Dominiac Hall at 9:00AM. Committee members are needed for Family Social and Funding. Come join in the fun. Parents Association is a great way to get involved and support Lumen Christi School.

SKI/SNOWBOARDING NEWS We are excited to have 64 students signed up for this year! All information is coming out via email and if you have not received any news, please call Jane Bartlett ASAP. We need a parent to take over the Ski/Snowboarding club for next winter of 2013. It would be ideal if 1-2 parents could commit now so that they can be "trained"! Please call Jane Bartlett if interested: cell 414-9160632.

THE ANNUAL FUND The Annual Fund appeal was recently mailed to every registered parishioner. This Fund was designed to advance our school’s Catholic mission and strengthen our academic programs by closing the gap between the actual cost of your child’s education and tuition. The appeal is a key source of revenue for our budget. Donations directly impact the day-to-day operations of the school. Please be as generous as you are able, knowing that every gift improves the lives of our children!


PPP is presenting a talk on pressure, stress and anxiety in teens on Friday, January 13 from 11:45 – 1:30. Dr. Cole will lecture to the parents of middle school and high school students in the Range Line School Conference Room.

Submit In-Brief info to Cindy King (262)-242-7965 E-Mail: Deadline: MONDAYS by 8:00 a.m. Please check our Parish School website at for more comprehensive information
