My name is Laura Drews, and I am eager to assist our teachers through our ELP program. I attended both Wisconsin Lutheran College and Martin Luther College, graduating from MLC in 2009. My husband serves as Principal and grades 7-8 at St. John's. We have three children, Lydia (10), Thomas (8), and Ezra (4). We moved to Lewiston from Lincoln, Nebraska in 2018. Growing up, I lived in various places throughout the Midwest. During my years as a stay-at-home mom, I have served as Afterschool Care Administrator, and as an in-home child caregiver. May God bless our school year!
School Is Now In Session
The 2021-2022 school year is now in session! Our day began with an opening church service led by Pastor Kuckhahn. His message was based on the school year’s theme, “Live Your Faith” Students, teachers, and parents were reminded in the message to let our light shine during the school year as our acts of love serve to honor and praise our Father in heaven.
We thank God for giving us another opportunity to learn about Him. The school year is off and running! Teachers here come the kids!
Preschool Has Begun
Mrs. Mierau reports that the K3 and K4 classes are now in the building! The little ones enjoyed meeting their new friends, but also hearing the beautiful message that Jesus loves them too. Mrs. Mierau was happy to see the smiling energetic children. May God continue to bless our preschool and their teacher.
St. St. John’s held their family registration and School Open House on August 23rd. The evening included registration, tours of the decorated classrooms, a pork master meal and a few student activities.

Mr. Witte and Mr. Baures from Luther High School were at St. John's today to talk to the 4th and 5th graders about the Luther Elementary School Band program. The 4th and 5th graders had the chance to try a clarinet, flute, trumpet, and tuba. The students each received information and registration information for this coming school year. The band program is open to all 5-8 graders at St. John's. Contact Mr. Witte, firstname.lastname@example.org, or Mr. Baures, email@example.com, for more information.
Recently St. John’s purchased property northwest of the school. This week, demolition began to remove the house. The congregation will decide on the next phases for the project. If you have questions about this project, please talk to Principal Drews.
