Welcome to St. Paul Lutheran School

Teaching Christ in All Things-Matthew 28:20

St. Paul Lutheran School provides an exceptional Christ-centered curriculum that celebrates academic excellence and prepares students for leadership and service.  St. Paul provides small class sizes, highly-qualified teachers and engaging opporutnities for learning at all ages.  We also offer art, music and foreign language, as well as after-school programs including competitive athletic teams.  Here at St. Paul Lutheran School, we strive to give our children a full range of educational experiences.  It is, "A Great Place to Grow."

OUR MISSION

St. Paul Lutheran School exists by God's grace to make disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ by educating, strengthening and equipping children and families for life and service in the church and world.

OUR CORE VALUES

It is our desire to:

  • Be an avenue for the giving of the Gospel so that each child (and family) may believe in Jesus Christ for salvation

  • Provide excellent academic preparation.

  • Develop a love and excitement for learning.

  • Create a strong work ethic, critical thinking skills and the ability to relate well with others.

  • Enhance the self-worth of each child and lead them to awareness of God's eternal presence in their life.

  • Help each child develop the talents God has given them.

  • Provide a nurturing and caring environment in which each child can work, learn, play and grow.

Educational Philosophy:  

I believe that Lutheran Education is a remarkable opportunity to make an eternal difference in the lives of children and families.  I believe that children need a safe and loving environment in which to grow and learn about the world God created.  Education is about leading children to discover their individual strengths while growing in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.  It has been my greatest joy to see children grow into young adults who are accomplished scholars, confident leaders and  bold and courageous witnesses for Jesus. 

"For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for the salvation to all who believe."  Romans 1:16

Kathy's Educational Philosophy: 

"Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6.

It is a blessing to teach the children to become the person the Lord has created them to be. I partner with families to continue teaching by example, not only preschool skills, but also the love the Lord has for them. The program begins with building a positive relationship between the teacher, family, and the child. Once this relationship is built, we are ready to learn in a positive way.

Angie's Educational Philosophy:  

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13

My goal as a teacher, is to aid in the development of a student’s character, confidence, and desire.  Character to accept failure and to turn it into success.  The confidence to ask what they do not understand, or to try what they have never done.  The desire to explore all that the world has to offer to them and to excel beyond the limits of their individual dreams and goals.

Danielle's Educational Philosophy:   

As a teacher, it is my goal to provide a safe and welcoming environment for my students where they can learn and thrive. It's always a wonderful feeling to see that spark of joy in their eyes when they are able to grasp the concepts that are being taught to them. I love 1 Thessalonians 5:11 "Encourage one another and build each other up." Always remember, "The influence of a good teacher can never be erased" (author unknown).
