School Notes:

  • Our school began in 1949 when members of the congregation saw a need to provide full time Christian education for its children. There were only two teachers and classes were held in the church basement. We are one of 346 Lutheran elementary schools who are operated by congregations of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS). We exist to help parents with the spiritual training of their children and to reach out to the community with Gospel message of Jesus Christ that Your child won't get lost in the crowd, Your child can progress faster and participate more, Teachers commit themselves fully to the school's mission.
