Since the first graduating class in 1852 St. John School students have gone on to become pastors, teachers, engineers, actors, athletes, missionaries, doctors, scientists, lawyers, artists, firefighters and police officers.
Alumni have taken the values and traditions learned here and gone on to serve our Lord worldwide.
Alumni have returned to St. John School as teachers, coaches, volunteers, and visitors.
We are glad to welcome you (again) and are happy to get this opportunity to share with you the good news at St. John Lutheran Church & School.

"When I started school at St. John, there were two classrooms with Grades 1 - 4 in one room and 5 - 8 in the other room. The building also had a basement and a gym upstairs. There were 4 students in my first grade class. Mr V Schachtsick was our teacher. Later, they added a classroom in the basement for the 1st and 2nd grades and the classroom I had been in was for Grade 3 - Grade 5, so I had Mr. V. Schachtsick until I went to the 6th - 8th classroom. Mr. Wukasch was the teacher. When I graduated, there were 8 students in my class. I am the only student from my class who is still a member of St. John, two are deceased and the rest have moved away." -Elsie Freese (Meyer)
"I remember cheerleading and going to Zion and different schools to cheer on the Eagles! I also remember my fourth grade show and tell with Mrs. Johnson. I got to bring in my dog Benson. He is still alive. but is 9 years old now!" -Courtney Anne Swarm, Alumni 1996-2000
"I remember going through Confirmation Class with Pastor Schaper and how we had to participate in questioning exercises the week before Confirmation. Each student had to answer three questions. We didn't know which ones we were going to be called upon to answer, so we had best be prepared and know our stuff." - Pamela J Stapert, Class of 1975
"This was the first school I ever attended where I truly felt loved. St. John changed my life and continues to be an inspiration to me everyday. Now I enjoy being an aid to children at this school and my children love attending here. There was and still is a real community at this church and school. Some names and faces have changed, but the bond we all share is the same in Christ." -Lori Reno-Howard, Alumni 1980-1984
