Principal to Parent
It is with great joy that I announce both Miss Krug and I returned our respective calls this past weekend and will be staying at Lord of Life!
We thank you for your encouragement as we deliberated our calls. We are so excited for what God has in store for the future at Lord of Life.
If you're interested, here is the text of our letters that were read to the congregation this past Sunday.
Miss Krug's Letter:
A few weeks ago, I received a call from St. Paul’s Church and School in Howards Grove, Wisconsin to serve as Kindergarten teacher.
For the second time this year, the LORD presented me with a wonderful opportunity to truly reflect on my ministry here at Lord of Life. What a humbling experience to go through this process not once, but twice in a school year.
During my personal Bible study this past week, Jesus’ voice could not have been louder. “Do not say, ‘Four months more and then the harvest’? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields. They are ripe for harvest.” (John 4:35)
We have a field so bountiful. Jesus is calling us to harvest it now - not next week or next month or next year. The time is now. I truly believe HE has a plan so great for our congregation and school that we cannot even begin to fathom the greatness. It is our responsibility to take a leap of faith and pour ourselves into our church, school, and community. Our Savior is in control. Our job is to listen to his voice and trust that he will not fail us. 1 Corinthians 1:9-10 states, “God is faithful, who has called you into fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought.”
I could not be more on fire for my calling here at Lord of Life. He has chosen me to continue to serve this congregation, the community, and further HIS kingdom right here.
Thank you for all the prayers and words of encouragement. You all are an amazing blessing to this congregation, our school, our community, as well as myself. Let us all work together to further HIS kingdom. OUR work together is not coming to a close, but rather just beginning.
In HIS Service,
Miss Cassie Krug

Keep sharing the word about our school!
I wanted to share a short conversation Mr. Scriver and I had at end-of-day pickup earlier this week. We both commented on how truly wonderful the group of families are that God has given us at Lord of Life. For whatever reason, the thought struck us at the same moment on the same day.
The family atmosphere that our students thrive on at this school is directly linked to YOU. The support that each and every one of you has shown our school this year, in ways that are big and small, does not go unrecognized.
On a personal note, I can not remember a more rewarding school year. I have been blessed serving Lord of Life for over 15 years. The amount of positive energy is palpable.
These are just a few small things that we have seen throughout this school year…
Families who support us and our teachers
Families who walk through those school doors every morning with a positive attitude
Families willing to give of their time
Families willing to give towards the school to ensure this education can continue into the future
Families who are willing to share with their friends the education that Lord of Life offers
Families who share and comment on our school facebook updates
Families who want nothing but the best for their child and their success
Families who pray for the students, faculty, and staff of Lord of Life
Students who support one another
Students who work hard and are motivated to learn
Students who are happy
Students who are respectful towards their classmates and teachers
Students who show a love for their Savior in Chapel, God's Word, and on the playground
This is why I and so many others LOVE this school. Thank you for being part of the Lor of Life family. Thank you for adding to the positive school climate that we strive to attain. Thank you for being the biggest part of what makes Lord of Life different and unique.
Happy 2019! I hope all of you had an amazing Christmas filled with family and reminders of the birth of our Savior. The faculty and staff are all looking forward to seeing the students back on Monday morning!
As a reminder, the 2nd quarter concludes on January 11th. Report cards will be sent home on the 18th.
Regrading the Children's Christmas Service, the students did an incredible job of sharing their Savior. For those who are not aware, there is sharable video up on both our school and church facebook pages. The church page features up close video filmed from the balcony while the school page features live video filmed from the front pew.

I can't wait for a great 2019 for the students and families of Lord of Life!
Last week I received a call to serve as principal and teach grades 7-8 in West Salem, Wisconsin. As with Miss Krug's call from last month, I will take a few weeks to reflect on my ministry here at Lord of Life, and my potential ministry at Christ-St. John's in West Salem.
Through my years at Lord of Life, I've had several opportunities to reflect on my ministry to this school and church. As always, I invite your feedback.
I hope to make a decision either the weekend prior to Christmas or sometime over Christmas break.
"Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me." Psalm 51:10
As many of you may have already heard, Miss Krug has decided to return her call to our WELS School in California and remain at Lord of Life. We are so excited to have Miss Krug continue her ministry at Lord of Life and to the surrounding community.
Here is a brief message from Miss Krug,
I'm excited to share that I have returned my call to to teach Kindergarten and First Grade at Mount Calvary in Redding, California. As time went on it became more and more clear that there is still work for me to do here at Lord of Life. I thank you all for your thoughts and prayers during my deliberation
