Lutheran Schools Week runs Jan. 27-Feb. 3
Online Staff Report
“There is a great diversity in our schools, and it serves the community well,” said Don Gillingham, executive director of Rockford Lutheran School, as a reason for the launch of a new website that serves as a portal for people looking for information on the Greater Rockford Area Lutheran Schools. GRALS.org provides the searcher with the location of the seven free-standing preschools, the five elementary schools and Jr./Sr. Campus of Rockford Lutheran School. A quick click takes the searcher to the individual websites for each of the schools.
Today there are more than 1,800 students enrolled in Preschool-12th grade schools in the Greater Rockford Area Lutheran Schools. The schools will have special events to mark this year’s observation of Lutheran Schools Week Jan. 27 through Feb. 3.
Lutheran Hour Ministries is helping to extend the reach of the local schools by sponsoring a virtual field trip to Thailand, which will take place Monday-Friday, from 10 to10:30 a.m. at the following locations: Rockford Lutheran Academy, 4700 Augustana Drive, Rockford; Rockford Lutheran Junior/Senior High School, 3411 N. Alpine Road, Rockford; Immanuel Lutheran School, 1045 Belvidere Road, Belvidere; Concordia School, 7424 N. Second St., Machesney Park.
