National Lutheran Schools Week
St. Stephens Lutheran School joins with other schools, students, and staff to celebrate National Lutheran Schools Week. Our week-long celebration is usually held during the first week of March.
Lutheran schools and education have been a tradition in the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS) since 1847. Today the LCMS operates the largest Protestant school system in the United States and educates over 220,000 students each year. SSLS was established in 1943 and is one of approximately 2,255 preschools, elementary, and high schools under the auspices of the LCMS.
In addition to our heritage and traditions, Lutheran schools offer an excellent Christian and academic education. At St. Stephens Lutheran School we are able to offer not only an academically-challenging curriculum, but a Christ-centered environment where students grow spiritually as well as, intellectually, physically and socially; we share the love and forgiveness of Jesus each and every day at SSLS. And Lutheran schools regularly rank in first or second in each of eight categories rated in the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), also known as the "Nation's Report Card". St. Stephens Lutheran School is proud to be a part of the LCMS's commitment to quality Christ-centered education.
As you pray for our school, our students, and our teachers, please remember to pray for all Lutheran schools. We have been given a tremendous blessing so that we may be a blessing to others. And finally, pray that God would bless Lutheran schools not just during NLSW, but every week throughout the year!
Praise God for Lutheran schools!
