PAWS is the parent teacher organization of St. John's Lutheran School and stands for Partners At Work for our School. All parents, guardians, faculty, and staff are automatically members of PAWS.

PAWS Objectives are:

  • Support school improvement and promote the finest education possible for the students of St. John's Lutheran School.
  • Raise funds to cover costs created from/for special activities and events.
  • Facilitate effective Christian training of St. John's students and parents achieved through educational, developmental, and social experiences at St. John's Lutheran School or at local locations.

PAWS meets the second Monday of every month at 6:30 P.M. in the school faculty room. We invite all parents and guardians to attend our monthly meetings to help plan our activities. What an excellent way to meet other families and to get involved with your child's school!
