Attend the Virtual Event

On behalf of the 35 member schools, 500 faculty, and 8,300 students we serve, we invite you to join us as we gather virtually to celebrate our honorees and joyfully advance the ministry of the Lutheran Elementary School Association (LESA). We sincerely appreciate your partnership to empower children to become all that God made them to be both spiritually and academically.  Silent auction opens April 10!

A ticket is not required to participate in the virtual event and auction, so join us April 17!
