St. Paul’s Ev. Lutheran School’s purpose is not only to aid parents in bringing up their children for a useful life as citizens of this world, but especially to direct the students’ attention to their lasting citizenship in heaven, and to lead them to boldly confess Christ to others.

St. Paul’s Ev. Lutheran School is a Christian elementary school maintained by the congregation to serve as an agency to assist parents in the Christian training of their children.  The Lord, through His Word, has bound the Christian home and church together as one unit with one and the same aim when He said:  “These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts.  Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up” (Deuteronomy 6:6-7).  Christian parents continue this God-given responsibility when they send their children to school.  The school is to serve and to assist parents in this responsibility.

About Richard Bakken

Mr. Bakken was born in La Crosse to Richard & Donna Bakken. He was raised on the family farm near Stoddard where he and his brother, James, attended grade school in the De Soto Area School District. Mr. Bakken is a graduate of Luther High School, and attended Northwestern College in Watertown for a short time, as well as UW La Crosse for two semesters before transferring to Dr. Martin Luther College in New Ulm, MN. He and his wife, Irene, graduated in 1976 and were married the same year before both began serving congregations in the Milwaukee area. Mr. Bakken’s first Call was to serve in an early staff ministry position at Zebaoth Lutheran Church where he was in charge of music and education at the Church. He also taught grade 5 at Siloah Lutheran Church. Mr. Bakken’s second Call was to St. John’s Lutheran School in Mishicot, WI where he served as principal and upper grade teacher. In 1986 Mr. Bakken and his family moved to Crete, IL where he served as principal and 9th grade teacher at Trinity Lutheran School. It was while serving there that the two congregations in Crete joined to form Illinois Lutheran High School. Mr. Bakken served as the first principal and music instructor at the high school. Since 1994 Mr. Bakken has been the principal and upper grade teacher at St. Paul in Tomah. During this time also, Mrs. Bakken taught Algebra classes and piano students at St. Paul’s. During the summer months she works at Wildcat Mountain State Park in Ontario, WI.
