"I have found a job that promotes God, family, and learning, and isn’t that what education should really be about?"

Building Faith...One Child at a Time
Our 2009-2010 school theme is Building Faith...One Child at a Time. The illustration depicts how the church, home, school, grandparents, alumni, and the community of believers work together in a family atmosphere to help a child grow and develop their faith.
The bottom represents the tap root of the Holy Spirit growing deeper in faith. It also shows how that faith branches off to create a stronger hold in the word. It is this area that really makes the education at First Lutheran School unique. At First Lutheran School we expand, enhance, and reinforce the work of the church through the congregations.
God may have blessed a child academically. The nutrients the children need to develop this gift are at First Lutheran School. Or the child may be blessed in athletics; again, the nutrients needed to grow that gift are here. Basically almost any gift God has given to a child can be nurtured and tended to at our school.
It is important that this “root” system is developed deep and wide. In this way children learn to relay on God when life’s storms his. At First Lutheran School we educate for the future and beyond!
