We invite the parents of our Pre-Kindergarten class to consider St. Paul’s Lutheran School when enrolling your child in Kindergarten. Choosing the school for your child is an important decision. We feel that a school which includes spiritual as well as academic, social, and physical learning is very important. Early in February, all Pre-Kindergarten parents will receive an invitation from Mrs. Shelley Eisele, our Kindergarten teacher, to our Kindergarten Information Meeting and Open House on Thursday, February 16th. We hope you will plan to attend and learn about our Kindergarten program.
