Learning today...Leading tomorrow. It is more than just a slogan here at St. Peter Lutheran School, but a part of our identity. We begin with a strong foundation in Jesus Christ, and extend into our relationships with teachers, students, and parents. We then nurture and build upon our foundation to develop students that are examples of faith in the community. The spiritual development, therefore, is a core value of our school, and at the center of everything we do. Each day begins with prayer and Bible study in the classroom. Memorization of Bible verses is a regular part of the curriculum. On Wednesdays we gather together for our weekly chapel which contains praise music, liturgy, pledges, and an uplifting message. Students also take a regular part in our chapel services. Students in every grade are responsible for leading a chapel service twice a year. In addition, they act as greeters, ushers, and flag bearers on a weekly basis.
Our middle school students are also looked upon as leaders of our school. They lead chapel groups, team building, and assist in some of our ongoing operations. Middle school students also participate in a yearly retreat to Jenness Park. This event is a highlight for our students. The experience is designed to build leadership capacity, grow together as a group, and nurture our faith in Jesus Christ. Worship and Bible study, in addition to many out-door activities, is a key component of our trip.
