School success is not measured by how well the teacher teaches a lesson or how well the student masters a lesson. Rather, student success is ensured when home and school work together. Parents, teachers, and students must work together if the student is to develop spiritually, physically, socially, emotionally and cognitively. Child of God Lutheran School prides itself on building authentic relationships with its parents, grandparents and guardians to more fully embrace our mission of providing a quality Christ-centered education for we know when we work together we create an environment that has its root in Christian love.
