"Nurturing Spiritual
& Academic Growth"

We are asking you, 
as a parent, grandparent, 
former student, and 
friends of FLS for continued 
support. Since 2008 over 
$164,000 has been received 
in the "FLS To Keep It 
Happening Fund."


In the past few years First Lutheran School:

  • Had eight high school valedictorians or salutatorians

  • Finished in the top three of the Lutheran Spelling Contest eight times

  • Qualified in the Minnesota State Geographic Bee

  • Won championship in the Lutheran State Basketball Tournament

  • Tied for 14th place in the 7th Grade Minnesota Math League Contest

The FLS To Keep It Happening Fund is 
designated for educational improvements 
in the school, providing funds for families 
who need tuition assistance, and keeping tuition rates at an affordable cost for all parents. We are asking you to prayerfully consider a special gift. All gifts to the "FLS
To Keep It Happening Fund" are fully tax deductible. We hope that you will consider helping as we strive to provide an education that nurtures spiritual growth and success in the world for our children.

Thank you for your consideration of this request and all that you have done to assist First Lutheran School in the past.

God's richest blessings to you and your family.

We encourage any Thrivent member making donations, both member and non-member, to take advantage of the benefits found in the Thrivent Financial for Lutherans "Thrivent Choice" Program. This program started in the summer of 2010. For more details, contact the Church Office for a Thrivent member. We thank Thrivent for their partnership in the ministry!


These programs allow children to enroll at First Lutheran who otherwise may not be able to afford the tuition.


During the school year First Lutheran School families are asked to participate if they choose, in various fund-raising activities. The All School Marathon and the FLS Silent Auction/Luncheon are two of our biggest fundraising events. These activities in addition to many others generate additional funding for the school in the range of $30,000 to $35,000. Below is a list of some of the ongoing programs we also  participate in regularly. If you have any questions about a particular fundraisery/program please call the school office, 320-864-3317.



Please remember to turn in the "Box Tops for Education" labels. The school received $.10 for each label returned.
