Principal's Corner

Mr. Steve Zielke

    We believe children are a gift from God. Our partnership in Christian education provides an environment in which children benefit, as they discover their God given gifts and grow and develop into Christian leaders and life-long learners. Lutheran churches and schools provide opportunities for lives to be transformed and minds renewed through the study and application of God’s Word. We are thankful for the sacrifices you make as a parent so that your child may be instructed and brought up in the fear and admonition of the Lord. The educational value you are adding for your child is immeasurable.

    St. Peter Lutheran School and all Lutheran schools are concerned about the total child. We exist for the development of children’s spiritual, academic, emotional, social and physical growth. We cannot operate in isolation if we are to be truly successful in helping children grow and learn about the world God provides and develop positive Christian values. A close working relationship between school and parents is critical. When teachers, parents and staff work in partnership God’s kingdom and His children benefit now and for eternity.

    We serve a loving God. Sharing the love of Jesus our Savior is what we are to be about. God’s gift of grace and forgiveness allows us to lead transformed lives. We learn from each other and grow daily. We are thankful you are a member of our church and school family. St. Peter students graduate with a solid foundation on which to build further learning as they serve their Savior, church, community and nation.

    May God’s blessing be upon us as He directs and guides our efforts together so that the children we are entrusted with grow and develop into life long learners and Christian leaders utilizing the wonderful talents our loving God so graciously provides.

    Welcome to the St. Peter Lutheran Church and School family!
