Nearly 8,500 Lutheran school students in the St. Louis Metro Area celebrated National Lutheran Schools Week, Jan. 26 - Feb. 1, 2020, with service projects, special events and open houses.

The theme of this year’s National Lutheran Schools Week was “Joy:fully Lutheran”!, from First Thessalonians 5:16–24: “He who calls you is faithful; he will surely do it.” Throughout the week, students celebrated individual themes for each day:


Nationwide, National Lutheran Schools Week provides nearly 2,000 Lutheran preschools, elementary schools and high schools with the public opportunity to proclaim and celebrate God’s work among us in schools of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod.

In the St. Louis area and southern Illinois, nearly 8,500 children attend 33 LESA-member Lutheran schools, making Lutheran schools the second largest private school system in the Bi-State Region. Lutheran schools serve children of all faiths, abilities and backgrounds and meaningful tuition assistance is available for students who qualify. To date, LESA has awarded more than $5.5 million to St. Louis area families, touching the lives of more than 3,300 children.

About 20 Lutheran school Robotics Teams participated in the first ever Lutheran Schools Robotics Expo, Sat., Feb 1, 2020, sharing experiences and resources as we continue to inspire captivation in the vast world of STEM.

Lutheran High, St. Charles hosted the Expo, giving students and mentors from all over the St. Louis Lutheran school community the chance to demonstrate their robots, projects and programs in a low-pressure environment of exploration and inspiration. 

Thank you to the numerous LESA and Lutheran High volunteers who helped things run smoothly, especially Lutheran High's FIRST FRC Team 4329 Roboteers. And congratulations to all of the schools that participated:
