Mr. Carl Boburka, Principal

Carl BoburkaAs Mary came to the grave of our Lord on the Sunday after His crucifixion, she was full of grief. We can only imagine that she was not in a very talkative mood. When she saw the open grave, she was moved to speak to the “gardener.” She soon discovered that Jesus was not there, He had risen as He said. You could not keep her quiet! We know she told the disciples. It is fair to assume that she told everyone she met every day for the rest of her life.

There is power in our exciting story telling. We know the motivation that drives us to talk about a new mov-ie, or our favorite restaurant. We tell the people we know and the people we meet the story of the things that matter most to us. We tell them about our kids. We tell them about our calling. We tell them about the importance of gathering people together to create the best possible future.

For over 50 years, Immanuel Lutheran School has been sharing the good news of Jesus Christ to help our children build the foundation for a Christ-centered life. Now that’s a story worth telling!
Our future enrollment looks bright. The Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade classes are very close to being at full capacity. The 3rd through 6th grade classes have room to grow. As a member of Immanuel Lutheran Church, know that every word you say has the potential to bring new children and their families into our Immanuel family. Our school is an important ministry outreach for our church. Do you know someone who is looking for an excellent Christian education for their children? Do you know families who would find success for their children at Immanuel? Encourage your friends and family to look into Immanuel as an option for fu-ture spiritual and academic growth for their children. For enrollment information, check the Immanuel web page at www.immanuelriverside.com or contact the office at 951-682-4211. It is a great time to be a ROAD-RUNNER!

Our school children experienced many blessings during Holy Week. On Wednesday, we had a special chapel led by our teachers. Our 4th, 5th and 6th grade students participated in our Good Friday, Tenebrae service. Many activities took place during the month of April. The children were challenged academically by taking the Iowa Test of Basic Skills. The results of this national testing program are used by our teachers to evalu-ate our students and our classroom curriculum/instruction. The annual Field Day was held on April 20 at Tahquitz HS. Our 27th annual Art Show took place on April 27. The children’s artistic abilities were on dis-play. It was truly an amazing event.

Are you looking for a summer program with daily fun, creative activities? LOOK NO FURTHER! ILS will be offering our summer Kids Kare program again this year. Each week has a designated theme and special ac-tivities. CHILDREN NOT ENROLLED AT ILS ARE WELCOME TO ATTEND. For information call the office at 951-682-4211 or email Julie Pingel at ilcsroadrunner@yahoo.com.
