St. John's Lutheran School has served our community for more than 70 years.

In 1957, the first 8th grade class graduated St. John's Lutheran School with a grand total of 19 graduates. 

Our alumni now consisits of many generations.  There are Facebook pages devoted to St. John's Lutheran alumni sharing fond memories from their youth.

Something about St. John's Lutheran just stays with people who have attended here.  It seems to be an intangible quality that people want to hold onto.


It is with sadness that I write to inform you of the passing of Ms. Gay, our 3rd Grade teacher at St John's Lutheran School. Ms. Gay passed suddenly at her home on Tuesday morning, November 24th, 2020. She served our school faithfully for over thirty years, and she will be sadly missed. A well loved and respected member of our faculty, Ms. Gay taught generations of St John's students and will be remembered fondly.  ~ Pastor Bagnall
