October Mission

Our mission project for October is to collect non-violent costumes for kids at the Ramsey County Family Service Center. Students are encouraged to bring their donated costumes to their classrooms.


Don’t miss the first adult-only night out! Join us on Friday, October 7, from 6-9pm for yard games, s’mores, appetizers, and more. Come to Rice Creek Picnic Pavilion in Centerville.

Meet the Teacher

We had a wonderful turnout for Meet the Teacher. The exciting energy, enthusiasm, and support was a fantastic way to start the year. Thank you so much for attending and for supporting the school in such a positive way. The Pupedis family won the drawing for the $25 Tuition Credit!



Bibles were presented to all third grade students, and new students in grades 4-6, during our Chapel service on September 21. Thank you, First Lutheran Women’s Ministry, for providing the Bibles.
