St. Mark Lutheran Elementary School

St. Mark Lutheran Elementary School Photo #1
St. Mark Lutheran Church started a Lutheran elementary school in September of 1984.
The elementary school is currently a two room school with classes for students from Kindergarten-8th grade.
We have two full time teacher.  We also use volunteers from the congregation that allow us to give a quality Christian education. The school's primary purpose is to aid in the Christian education of the members of St. Mark's Lutheran.
If space is available, children of parents who are not members may enroll.
For the 2016-2017 school year there were 28 students enrolled in Kindergarten through 8th grade.
St. Mark's offers a full curriculum that includes math, science, social studies, reading, phonics, language, spelling, handwriting, and, most importantly, the study of God's Word.
The Word of God classes for the Kindergarten through 4th graders are the teaching of Bible stories.
The 5th-8th grade students have catechism instruction in addition to these bible story lessons.
Because we are teaching the children our church doctrine parents that are not members of St. Mark's Lutheran Church need to meet with our pastor a few times before their child can be enrolled, so that the parents and the pastor can discuss some of the key points that will come up in the religion classes.
