St. Paul Lutheran School combines old and new traditions
For the Gazette
STEVENS POINT – St. Paul Lutheran School in Stevens Point began what is planned as a new tradition on March 18, as they welcomed next year’s incoming Kindergarten class with a “Kindergarten Signing Night.”
The class of 2030 at St. Paul signed their “Certificate of Intent” as family members looked on and a brief bio was shared with those in attendance.
“In addition, St. Paul’s principal and kindergarten teachers shared a brief bio of themselves, reflected on their own time in Kindergarten and why Kindergarten is such an important step in a child’s educational journey,” a St. Paul’s release stated.
“Kindergarten is so foundational to the many years of learning that these kids will have – especially having a faith foundation that will guide them,” Jim Wegner, principal stated.
Parents were also able to visit their child’s classroom for this fall.
“The following day, all St. Paul students participated in an “old” tradition in a safely adapted manner when a Spring Carnival was held in the parking lot,” the release added. “Student council members set up and ran carnival games allowing each classroom time to have fun in the warm spring weather.
“The annual Winter Carnival at St. Paul is a long-standing community tradition but needed to be postponed due to COVID restrictions this winter. The Spring Carnival was a great way to have fun just before Spring Break.”
St. Paul Lutheran School has held in-person classes five days a week for their three-year-old preschool through eighth grade classes this year.
St. Paul is a Wisconsin Parental Choice School and is currently enrolling for the 2021-22 school year. For more information, call 715-344-5660.
