A new year is already upon us and at C.L.E.W.S. we are eagerly planning an exciting year, as we begin holding  registration for the 2019-2020 school year.


PHASE I: Now through January 19, 2019 for Christ Lutheran and CLEWS families.

Early registration enables Christ Lutheran and CLEWS families to receive priority class placement before we open the classes to the public.All eligible Cradle Roll and Sunday School children’s families will be mailed the packet of registration information, or you may pick it up in the church office. Be sure to turn in your registration before January 20, 2019 for priority placement.


PHASE II: Sunday, January 20, 2019 begins OPEN REGISTRATION for new families to the CLEWS program.


CLEWS is beginning its 36th year and still maintains its excellent reputation. Thanks is due to the dedicated staff, and to the loyal families who continue to spread the word about their experiences at CLEWS.


Parent Meeting…Tuesday, January 15, 2019   7:00 to 8:30 PM

THE GIFT OF A YEAR-Kindergarten Readiness and Beyond


At this meeting, researched information and factors to consider about kindergarten readiness will be presented. Also, a panel of parents and educators will be present to share their experiences with preparing their child for kindergarten, including what factors they considered when making the decision to send their child to kindergarten and what has been the outcome now that their children are older.


We ask that you pre-register so that we know how many to plan for and in the case of inclement weather (as happened last year when we had to cancel) we will be able to notify you. Please call the CLEWS Office at 708-349-0171 and leave your leave your name and contact number if you plan to attend this meeting.


Blessings, good health, and happiness to you and your families in the New Year!
