“REALLY???? They don’t want to leave?” “Really! They don’t want to leave!” Why is it that Natalia doesn’t want to leave school when the bell rings at 3:15? She, like so many other students at St. Paul’s, is enjoying and engaged in every aspect of their education at St. Paul’s Lutheran School in North Hollywood.
The mission statement at SPLFS states that the school “exists to assist parents in providing children with a Christ-centered education; promoting spiritual, emotional, social, physical, and academic growth; equipping them for life and eternity as redeemed children of God.
Spiritual growth is happening on a daily basis as students at all levels hear and learn the truths of the Bible.St. Paul’s graduates have been recognized in high school for their knowledge and understanding of God’s Word in the Bible. The faculty is lead by highly trained pastors, Paul Meitner and Lynn Wiedmann, who participate in the Christian instruction.
Emotional growth occurs as children are carefully tended to by loving teachers. All classrooms have excellent student-teacher ratios. Every school family becomes a part of theSt. Paul’s Family, with many children building friendships that last a lifetime.
Social growth is happening in and out of the classroom every day where respect and manners are a priority. Couple this with the many social activities like St. Paul’s Fall Festival on October 20th or Trunk or Treat on Friday, October 26th, and the result is great times, great friends, and great social experiences.
Physical growth is seen as wonderfully supportive parents ensure that children come to school healthy and well prepared to take on the rigors of classroom instruction and work. After the school day, many budding athletes in grades 4-8 participate in an array of interscholastic league sports, including basketball, flag football, softball, volleyball, and track and field.
The academic growth is so well-rounded atSt. Paul’s! Children receive a solid, foundational education starting with the three R’s, complimented by regular Bible study, an updated Social Studies curriculum, an extensive music program (including regular instruction and numerous music electives), art, technology, and drama. An exciting addition to the curriculum this year is in the Science department, with teachers and kids dabbling with new light, magnetic, gas, and voltage sensors, electronic microscopes, solar car kits, and Lego robotics kits.
