Meet Miss Heise

Miss Noelle Heise went to Indiana University in Bloomington. She has a Bachelor of science in math education.

Her mom is Mrs. Heise and she teaches first grade here at St. Peter. She’s very close with my brother, Austin, and we are always going on fun adventures together.
Miss Heise likes to read and play the ukulele. She also likes to play the Pokemon card game, video games, and playing board games with friends. She always love trying new places to eat.
Miss Heise’s favorite color is aqua.
Her favorite Bible verse always changes based on what I need spiritually. One that I always keep at the front of my mind is Philippians 4:12-13. “I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.”
Miss Heise’s special school memory: “I just always remember being with my best friends in almost every class. We would always do projects together. We had to film some videos together and they were always so funny. We would love coming up with ideas together and we would laugh so much. It didn’t seem like homework because we were having so much fun.”

Witness Always — Daily Investigations

On Sunday, November 17th, the lives of many were changed forever because of the devastating tornadoes that struck Illinois and Indiana.  One congregation that was affected was St. John Lutheran Church in New Minden, Illinois.  This is the home congregation of our 7th and 8th grade teacher.  Students at St. Peter Lutheran School made encouragement cards and have been praying those affected by the storms.                                                                                                                                                 

On the day before Thanksgiving, students gathered together to sing “Fear Not!” as a message of encouragement to the people of St. John.  May the words of the song also encourage anyone experiencing a storm in life to remember that God is always with you.                                                                                                                              


The song is based on the words of Isaiah 43:1-2 —— “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are Mine.  When you pass through the waters; I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you.  When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.”                                                                                                                                                                    


The 7th and 8th graders also shared the song “Trading My Sorrows”  which encourages all to remember that the joy of the Lord uplifts us in our times of struggles.
