By CINDY MELCHER
Principal, St. Paul Lutheran School

St. Paul Lutheran School will open its 123rd year on Aug. 15. The school is operated by the St. Paul Lutheran Church in Thorndale. The school provides a quality Christian education for students in Pre-Kindergarten 3 through eighth grade.

We are accredited at both the state and national level. Our students in third through eighth grades scored in the top 10 percent of the nation on national standardize test. We have a mulitgrade classroom for grades first through eighth. Seven teachers work at the school. All teachers have certification by the state of Texas.

Our academic program includes a traditional curriculum as well as daily religious instruction. The school also provides a band program for grades 5-8, Spanish in 7-8; a full range of competitive sports that include state level tournaments for grades 5-8. Our graduates excel in local high schools and go on to become productive Christian citizens.

In addition to being principal, I also teach grades 7th and 8th. I have been at St. Paul’s for 35 years and have served as prinicpal for the past 12 years.

I would invite you to learn more about our school by visiting our website at www.stpaulthorndale.com . We currently have an enrollment of 112, but there are a few openings in all grades except Kindergarten, PK4 and third grade.

I invite your readers to come and see what a gift Christian education can be not only for your child but for your family.
