Welcome, Mrs. Lusher!
The staff of St. Paul would like to to welcome Mrs. Sherri Lusher as our new head cook for the school lunch program. Mrs. Lusher and her husband, Brian, have three children here at St. Paul. We look forward to what the Lord has in store through your efforts in providing lunches for the students in the coming years! We pray that the Lord bless you and your family as you transition into this new role here at St. Paul. Mrs. Lusher politely asks that if you have any dietary restrictions or concerns for your child, please let her know.
Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!
  • The staff and parents would like to thank Mrs. Schultz for her years of service as head cook for the school lunch program. You have been a blessing to the children here at St. Paul over the years for the tasty lunches provided to the students. Missed will be the homemade cinnamon rolls and rolls for the hamburgers! Also, your dedication for preparing meals for special school events such as breakfasts for the parents, congregational members, and VIP Day! We pray that as you transition into caring for your granddaughter, blessings from our Lord will flow through you to Caleb, Mary and granddaughter, Ruth.  
  • Mrs. Dent and Mr. Garcia would like to thank ALL 2nd-5th grade soccer players, parents, and families for a wonderful season. It was wonderful to be back on the field representing St. Paul Lutheran School. We were truly blessed to work with such wonderful students throughout this soccer season. We can't wait for next fall. GO WILDCATS!
  • PTO thanks everyone who attended Pastries with Parents, and to Thrivent for the grant, and The Tiny Apple Store for the delicious apple cider donuts!
