Dear Mrs. (insert name here),

It’s National Lutheran Schools Week, and I know you are busy preparing special events for all of your students, putting in extra hours to make sure chapel goes well this week, and that somehow in the middle of it all, you will still find the time to get a math lesson in.

What a blessing you are to my family. Thank you for the care you give to my daughter, working with us to help her grow in her knowledge, building character in her by putting her in situations where she can serve her neighbor, and, most importantly, continuing to help her see the love that her Savior poured out for her on the cross. Thank you for what you do in supporting our family.

I see that this year’s theme for NLSW is “It’s Still All About Jesus.”

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Hebrews 13:8

In the middle of all the hustle and bustle of this week, and even in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the school year, my prayer is that you are continually reminded that this Jesus, who is the same today as He was yesterday as He will be tomorrow, is for you. The forgiveness He won on the cross, for you. His body and blood, for you. The faith you have received, it is for you.

As you read to your students from Scripture, hear the Word of God yourself. As you sing hymns with my daughter, rejoice in the victory that they proclaim. Be filled with the joy of the Gospel and continue to share that with the little ones that we have entrusted you with.

Happy National Lutheran Schools Week, Mrs. (insert name here). Because of what you do, it truly is still all about Jesus.
