School Notes

  • Our teachers work in partnership with parents and other family members to promote children`s learning. They provide information about the curriculum and early learning, invite family members to participate in classroom activities, discuss children`s progress, and share ideas for extending classroom learning in the home. As a result, families have a better understanding of how their children are developing and learning.
  • Chapel School is an outreach ministry of Memorial Lutheran Church.  Our mission is Making Christ known . . . by empowering educators, lifting  families, and preparing our youngest for school and for life. Every day we focus on the variables that allow all children to be their best selves, regardless of their circumstances.
