Immanuel Lutheran School
Immanuel prepares children to both compete and build community. We are fully accredited by the National Lutheran School Accreditation as well as the National Federation of Non-Public Schools. A sizable percentage of the past valedictorians at Washington High School have been graduates of our school. We welcome you to visit our school and talk with Nick or the teachers about enrolling your child in our preschool, prekindergarten, kindergarten or any of the eight grades.
Mr. Nick Hopfensperger serves as principal at Immanuel Lutheran School. He helps teachers and parents prepare their children academically, socially, and spiritually for living out their faith in their family and in the secular world.
Our current school families can access FastDirect, the secure school administration software, by clicking on the link above. FastDirect is an online program that allows the school office to track tuition payments, student grades, daily attendance, and lunch count. It also provides a simplified way for ILS families to track their child’s lunch accounts, view tuition payments that are due, and visit the sports calendar.
Friday, March 24th, is our Family Movie Night! Join us in the cafeteria for the showing of Disney’s “Moana”. Doors open at 6:00 pm and the movie begins at 6:30 pm. Families are encouraged to bring blankets to lay on the floor and pillows to make their spots comfortable. Soda and popcorn will be available for purchase, but feel free to bring your own snacks for your family to enjoy.
In addition, there will be an Open House held prior to the show from 5:00 – 6:30 pm for families that are interested in learning more about Immanuel Lutheran School and the benefits that ILS can be for families. Invite those you think may be interested not only to the movie, but join them a bit earlier to tour with them – what a great way to share Immanuel with others!
This week we celebrated Lutheran Schools Week! Lutheran Schools provide many blessings to those who attend as well as those who support it. For nearly 155 years, Immanuel Lutheran Church and School has been able to support parents in their God-given role as care-givers for their children. We thank you for all you do to support the ministry at ILS and ask for your continued prayers. We had a great week celebrating the opportunity we have in Lutheran Schools - we enjoyed Grandparents Day on Monday and taught our guests how to dance a German Polka, explored the science behind various candies on Tuesday, competed in a canned food drive / sculpture contest on Wednesday, held our school-wide Spelling Bees on Thursday, and enjoyed a field trip to the movie theater on Friday. What a busy week!
Join us for a fun night of trivia on Saturday, February 25 in the ILS gym! This night will be hosted by our 7th and 8th grade families, as they raise money for this summer's class trip to Washington D.C. Doors open at 5:30 pm with trivia starting at 6:00 pm. The cost is $10 per person with a maximum of eight per table for early reservations - forms are available in the school lobby or by calling 636-239-1636. Seats are $11 each ($88 per table) if purchasing tickets at the door on the night of the event.
Registration for the 2017-2018 school year is already taking place! Parents are able to stop by the school office any day during the week of January 23rd between 8:00 am and 3:00 pm or on Tuesday, January 24th between 5:30 and 7:00 pm to register their child(ren). These registration times are open to all interested families from the community whose children do not already attend ILS. If you know of someone looking for a Christian education, have them call the school office (636-239-1636) or stop by during that week to get more information.
