Immanuel Lutheran School

Providing caring, challenging, Christian education since 1881.

Dear Parents,

Immanuel Lutheran School is proud to once again offer its students an opportunity to participate in after-school clubs and sports. ILS’ s goal is to provide an education in which the whole child is enriched. By providing after-school clubs, the children have a chance to explore areas that they do not always get a chance to experience during the regular school day. Many members of our staff and parents have developed a wide range of activities for the students to help to expand their horizons. Thank you to all who are giving of their time for the children.

Please review the available clubs and fill out the attached permission form. Please be aware of the time and days each club meets as all are different. Club leaders will provide a schedule for students and dates will also be posted in the Lion’s Roar. Some clubs may require a sign-up before each session due to limited space. For club fees, please include a check payable to ILS with the permission slip. Costs listed are for each child. If you have any questions, contact Mrs. Baker.
