WELCOME TO PEACE LUTHERAN SCHOOL
Peace Lutheran School is so much more than simply a great school. We are a community of families who share the love of Christ through our dynamic, academically excellent school of nearly 300 students, grades Preschool through Grade 8.
For the 2015-16 school year, our ministry theme is “Fruit of the Spirit” as based upon Galatians 5:22-23: “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.” Faith is integrated across our academically challenging curriculum as we equip students for this world and for eternity.
Students receive excellent instruction from highly qualified and dedicated faculty and staff in the areas of Science, Technology, Math, Reading, Writing, Literature, Grammar, Spelling (Language Arts), Social Studies, Art, Physical Education, Music, Spanish, Religion and more. Our eighth-grade students graduate and do well going on to our sister school, Valley Lutheran High School, or the other high schools in the Saginaw area.
We have strengthened our National Lutheran School Accredited educational program by maintaining our academically rich curriculum and implementing the following enhancements:
Adding 2.5 hours of instruction each week.
Highlighting our K-8 Science instruction by adopting a “hands-on” and “inquiry learning” based program and dedicating staff to teach departmentalized Science in Grades 3-8.
Strengthening our Technology curriculum by dramatically increasing instructional time, dedicating staff to lead our Technology instruction and improving our infrastructure.
Enhancing our Art program by adding a full-time teacher to our faculty and significantly increasing dedicated instructional time, as well as integrating Art into other areas of the curriculum.
Spanish instruction has expanded both in grade levels (Early Childhood through Grade 8) and in instructional time.
Peace also has a Resource program that has successfully served students with academic needs for several years. We are implementing a Resource “Gifted and Talented” program to meet the academic needs of students identified as needing additional enrichment and academic challenge. The Christ-centered faculty and staff of Peace are working very hard to offer the finest quality Christian education program to our students and families, as it is our calling to be “disciples making disciples” as we GATHER, GROW and GO with God’s inspired Word.
Don’t just take my word for it, COME AND SEE FOR YOURSELF! Call the school office at (989) 792-2581 if you would like a personal tour of our school and a face-to-face appointment with me, the Early Childhood Director or time with one of our educational professionals.
In Christ’s service,
Mr. Henry G. Pahlkotter, II
