St. John’s Classical Lutheran School

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, this is an update on the current status of St. John’s Classical Lutheran School. The following is a one sentence definition of classical education: A classical school might better be called “traditional education” because it is the type of education that predominated in the Western world for centuries prior to the mid-1900s. Pending the approval of the Elders the following will be the staff of St. John’s Classical Lutheran School. Andrea Kosmicki will be the primary full time teacher, Erin Grass will be part time in music, P.E. and other instruction. Bethany Johnson in addition to her current duties will be a part time teacher for latin and choral music. The plan for the location of the school is to have pick up and drop off at St. John’s Lutheran church. Drop off and pick up will be at the south doors next to Luther Hall. Primary instruction will take place at the District Office.
