Student Life


Science and Fine Arts

La Crosse Area Lutheran Schools work together to host both a Fall and a Spring Science and Fine Arts Fair.  The Fall fair includes arts and crafts, math, chess, spelling, and vocals.  The Spring fair includes forensics, science, social studies, piano, and instrumental performance.  Visit the La Crosse Area Lutheran Schools website for further details.

School Plays

Each year there are opportunities for students to be involved in plays, musicals, or other entertainment events.  Our early childhood children offer a production each Spring.  Students in grades 1-4 and 5-8 rotate each school year.  Lower grade productions are generally Spring performances, while upper grades generally host a Fall performance.


The website will give detailed information on schedules, contact information, fees, and registration forms.


Lutheran Elementary School Band Program

Participation in the Lutheran Elementary School (LES) Band Program is a fun and rewarding experience. Besides learning how to play a musical instrument, students learn to perform in solo and group situations.  In these groups they meet students from other Luther High School Association schools and are involved in making music with them.  There are several concerts throughout the year and two parades at the end of the school year.

Students will have lessons with a Luther High School music instructor here at St. Paul’s.  Group rehearsals will be at Luther High School.  Those will take place on selected Fridays throughout the school year.  Students are expected to be at those rehearsals as well as their weekly lessons.  If your child cannot attend a rehearsal or performance, please contact the band director.

Students will receive 30 lessons each year and each lesson will be 15 minutes in length.  There will be several rehearsals to prepare for a fall concert and several rehearsals to prepare for our spring concerts and parades.

If you would like more information or have any questions, please contact Jonathan Witte at (608) 783-5435, ext. 1320 or

Private piano lessons are available during the school day.  Contact the school office for the names and contact information for current piano teachers.


The St. Paul's Junior Choir exists to give students in grades 5-8 an opportunity to praise God with the gift of their voices.  Throughout the year, we sing for church services, festivals at Luther High School, and for an occasional funeral. Junior Choir meets Wednesday afternoons for 30-40 minutes during the school day.
