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.
The annual Choral Vespers Service is scheduled
for Wednesday, December 18, beginning at 7:00 pm and will be held in the sanctuary. Ms. Kaaz is coordinating this worship service and is working with the teachers and students to prepare for this special evening. Students in Kindergarten through grade 8 will share the Christmas story through songs, instrumental music, and spoken recitations. We invite you to join us for this wonderful evening and annual tradition at ILCS! Plan to come early as the seats in the sanctuary will fill up quickly!
ILS students and families donated boxes and enough items to send 355 boxes to various countries of the world! This is a new record for ILS in the fourth year we have participated in this program. These boxes were assembled for under-priviledged children in poor nations and include such items as toothpaste, toothbrushes, t-shirts, socks, small toys, flashlights, and the like. In addition to these items, the Gospel message is written in their language for the children to receive and read. We pray that God would bless our efforts again this year! Many thanks to the ILS Student Council for overseeing this outreach program!
Our Veteran's Day celebration will be held on Friday, November 8th, at Immanuel Lutheran School. A reception for our veterans and their guests will begin at 1:00 pm in the Fellowship Hall. At 1:30 pm, an all-school program will be presented by students in K through 8th grade. We invite all veterans to attend this program as we honor your service to our country! Please call the school office (239-1636) if you plan to attend. A special thanks to Ms. Kaaz and Mr. Wunderlich for all their work in planning this event.
On Saturday, October 26th, Immanuel will host a Trunk-or-Treat on the east side of the school building from 4:00 - 6:00 pm. We had a great turnout in past years as we enjoyed the fall season! This year, the children will be able to visit several decorated cars, receive candy, make crafts, decorate pumpkins, and watch a couple of pumpkin carvings. This event will be held outside, so dress comfortably. If it rains, we'll simply move the fun inside to the gym. This event is free and open to the community - we encourage you to dress up in your best costume and join us for the fun!
