THE PLS COMMUNICATOR IS YOUR PRIMARY SOURCE OF INFORMATION

FALL 2020/21
We still do not know what fall will look like for PLS. Although we truly want to be able to provide in-person instruction again on campus, we must abide by what public officials tell us what is appropriate and safe. Please know that we will be working with the Washington State Board of Ed & OSPI in order to safely deliver instruction this fall. We will continue to keep you informed throughout the summer months as we get more information and direction from these state officials.

FINAL REPORT CARDS
The final report cards for grades 1 thru 8 will be mailed home the week of June 22.

RAFAEL DIEPPA’S RETIREMENT CELEBRATION
This July will mark the end of Mr. Rafael Dieppa’s time at Parkland Lutheran. He started serving Parkland Lutheran in 1999! As a “thank you” to Mr. Rafael for his 21 years of service, we are inviting all of you to attend a special celebration for him on Sunday, July 26, at 11:30am, in the Ark. Everyone is welcome to attend this special event! (Social distancing guidelines at the time of the event will be observed.)

Please help us spread the word about this to any alumni/parents/supporters of Parkland Lutheran! You may direct any questions to the school office at school@parklandlutheran.org.

CONFIRAMTION SUNDAY
Sunday, August 9, at 10:30am, 8th grade students Anna H., Alyssa S., and America S. will be received into communicant membership through the Rite of Confirmation. There will be a reception immediately following the service in the church Narthex.

YEARBOOKS
Unfortunately, the PLS yearbooks have not yet arrived. Once they have arrived, we will notify parents with details about how to pick-up and/or purchase yearbooks.
