St. Paul's Lutheran School

St. Paul's Lutheran School is a place where faith and learning go hand in hand. We are committed to excellence in academics with a focus on the students' faith walk and our school values which are reflected in the Fruit of the Spirit. Our students become confident leaders and public speakers and have opportunities to appreciate traditions and perspectives through experiences.

Education

St. Paul’s Lutheran School is the only elementary school in Iowa affiliated with the ELCA. As a fully accredited school, we offer programs similar to public schools with the addition of faith-based curriculum. We stand apart from other schools by offering Spanish in all grades, art in kindergarten, as well as various extended field trips.

Faith

The development of faith is integral to St. Paul’s education. Each classroom has daily devotions and prayer. Classes have unique curricula to guide students’ faith development. Although we are affiliated with the ELCA, our curriculum is non-denominational. Click HERE to watch the school worship livestreams.

Learning

Students develop leadership skills in many ways. Students lead weekly Thursday morning worship, providing experience in public speaking and collaborative planning. Before graduating, 6th graders complete the Capstone Program, interviewing community members and reflecting on what it means to leave a legacy, culminating in a trip to Washington, D.C.

A Christian Education

Each day is a precious gift, and being part of St. Paul’s is a blessing for students, parents, and staff alike. Whether its in the classroom, at recess, or in worship, St. Paul’s educators see each child as a special gift from God.

2022 Pay It Forward Capital Campaign

The 2022 Pay It Forward Capital Campaign at St. Paul's focuses on investing in the future of our school and church. As we reflect on celebrating 150 years of ministry, we want to hand off our ministry, our facilities and our programs to the next generation in the best condition possible. For many reasons, we already have a great start on “paying it forward.”

The Pay It Forward campaign will focus on addressing the following needs of the church and school building:

  • School ventilation, heating and cooling, which will improve the air quality, safety, and comfort level of the school.
  • Classroom modernization, which will provide renovations and classroom equipment for the school and enhance the learning environment for students and teachers.
  • Parish Hall floor, stage, sound and lighting, which will enhance the utilization of the Parish Hall for the school, congregation and community.

All of this is in response to the blessings God has bestowed on St. Paul’s congregation for 150 years. We look ahead with thankfulness and praise that we can, in good faith, pass the baton of mission and ministry to our children, and grandchildren, and all who come after us.
