Thousands of students at 35 Lutheran schools in the St. Louis area celebrated National Lutheran Schools Week – January 24-30, 2021 – with dress-up days, fun activities, special treats, and service projects. Several schools also celebrated their 100th Day of School!

The theme of this year’s celebration was Sent to Serve, based on Matthew 20:28: “The Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

Nationwide, 180,000 children in more than 1,900 preschools, elementary schools and high schools celebrated National Lutheran Schools Week this year! The week, which occurs annually during the last week of January, gives Lutheran school students and staff a public opportunity to proclaim and celebrate God’s work among us in schools of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod.
