St. James Lutheran Elementary School

St. James Lutheran School is a mission arm of St. James Lutheran Church.
Our school exists because our church body wants every child to come to the knowledge of truth which is to recognize that salvation comes only through Jesus Christ, our Savior.
At St. James we want each child to know that he is loved by Jesus.
We want each child to know that his sins are forgiven through the death and dying of Jesus Christ.
We want each child to know that he is special and that God created him that way.
God wants us to worship him. He wants us to honor him by word and deed.
The teachers of St. James are dedicated to serve. Our mission is to train children in the word by integrating the faith in all that we do.
