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.
On Friday, May 10 and Saturday, May 11, the upper grade students at ILS will present “The Wizard of Oz”. This well-known musical will be held in the gym and will begin at 7:00 pm both nights. Join us as we go with Dorothy and Toto to a magical place called OZ . . . and meet some unforgettable characters along the way! Come out to see this elaborate production as well as support the talents of these young men and women as we showcase their acting, singing, and set design! These shows are free to all.
NASA astronaut Colonel Jeffrey Williams will be at Immanuel this Friday, April 12. He will lead a children's presentation on Friday at 2 p.m. and one for the community at 7 p.m.
Colonel Williams spent 183 days aboard the International Space Station in 2006 taking more pictures than any astronaut past or present. He will share those pictures and his story. It will be a unique and exciting opportunity for children and adults alike.
There is no cost for the event and the Washington community is invited.

Pi Day was celebrated on March 14 (3.14) again this year at ILS. Students celebrated not only the significance of this mathematical term, but the love of math in general. Pictured to the right is our 7th grade class, giving themselves the nickname of "The Pi-thons"! They were responsible for the planning and much of the assistance of the day's activities. This year, students participated in pie relays, a pie throwing contest, and a pie eating contest. The highlight again this year was our competition of the recitation of the digits of pi - one student reciting 236 digits!
