St. John’s School Held Open House


St. John’s Lutheran School held an open house on Saturday, April 15th, rescheduled from April 1st due to the April Fools’ Day snowstorm. The open house was an opportunity for prospective students, parents and people in the community to tour the building and visit with the staff. The school is adjacent to St. John’s Church, located at 36620 County 4 Boulevard in rural Goodhue. The church and school are affiliated with the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS) but welcome all that are interested in a quality, Christian education that will prepare children for this world and the next.

The four full-time staff members, additional support staff and volunteers were on hand to greet guests and answer questions. There were games for the kids and treats for all who attended. All classrooms were open for viewing and children’s art work was on display throughout the school.

There are currently 43 students enrolled in Kindergarten through the 8th grade and an additional 6 children attending pre-school for 3 and 4 year-olds. The school operates on the same schedule as the Goodhue Public School and offers bussing, hot lunches and co-operative sport opportunities. The congregation has set up a vision committee to consider the possibility of adding a full-size gym or enlarging the parish fellowship hall as they prepare to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the church and school in 2025.
