A review of the August 27th flood damage and plans for recovery

Psalm 145:17 – The Lord is righteous in all his ways and loving toward all he has made.

After heavy extended rains (7+ inches) Sunday night and early Monday morning (August 26-27) in the Grafton area, we received extensive water damage to the lower level of our facility, including our fellowship hall, library, school classroom, kitchen, bathrooms, several furnace rooms, storage rooms and stairwell area. Many folks responded immediately that Monday morning and during the next few days helped salvage what we could save and dispose of what we couldn’t save. A professional company was called in to dry, disinfect and prevent mold issues.

We are grateful for all the volunteer help we’ve so far received (now in the hundreds of volunteer man-hours) and trust God’s plan for us as we prayerfully work through the remainder of the demolition and clean-up and begin to plan how we might rebuild and restore. We are also grateful that although our six stored sanctuary paintings were partially submerged, they received minimal damage and should be fully usable without any noticeable damage. We are arranging for a new area to store them in the future. Continue reading “A review of the August 27th flood damage and plans for recovery”

Getting to know our teachers:
Mrs. Emily Platzer

This week in our “Getting to know our teachers” series, we’re talking to Mrs. Emily Platzer, our 1st/2nd grade teacher at Our Savior Lutheran School.

What is your favorite bible verse and why?

1 John 3:1 “How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called on children of God! And that is what we are!”

I love this passage because it’s a great reminder to us all that we have an almighty Father and we are his children! God is always with us and what a blessing that we can always call on him as his daughter/son.

What inspires you about teaching?

Teaching is an opportunity to take students on a journey. To teach them about their Savior and the joy of learning. I love seeing students get that “ah-ha” moment and light up, excited to share what they have learned.

Can you give me a brief description of your classroom and objectives for this school year?

My classroom is a bright place with spaces for students to write, read, create and sing. My objectives for the school year are for the students to foster a love of reading and for their Savior. I’d love for the students to come home and read their family and friends a Bible story. 🙂

You are a cookie. What kind would you be and why?

I would say Chocolate chip cookie. While I love many different types of cookies you can’t beat the “classic cookie.” I love the classic look for clothing and I love to listen to oldies-classic! 🙂

What is the funniest thing that has happened to you while teaching?

A few years ago while I was living and teaching in Nebraska I had a visitor show up to class. In the middle of one of my morning classes I looked up and said “cow.” My students quickly turned around and noticed a cow looking into our classroom. I walked down to my principal’s room and he told me to herd the cow back into the pasture. So for the next 10 minutes my students got to watch me from the window as I herded the cow back into it’s pasture.

A penguin walks through that door right now wearing a sombrero. What does he say and why is he here?

“Hola, I”m Peter Piper Penguin and I’m here to eat your pickles. Por favor”
