School Pre-Registration is now open/online for the 2021-22 school year. Please visit https://www.stpaulsbangor.com/forms/school-registration/ to pre-register for next school year to help with planning! Wisconsin School Choice Program
St. Paul’s is moving forward to become eligible for the Wisconsin School Choice Program. (WSCP) We have learned this can be a tremendous economic benefit to our school and parents, without giving up control of our school. It will not jeopardize our core values or mission. Many of our surrounding WELS schools are already in the program. Others are in the process of enrolling. Once a child is found eligible for School Choice funds, the eligibility carries forward and will benefit members attending Luther High as well.
The first step is to have St. Paul’s initiate the Accreditation process. This can be a demanding task. We are forming an Accreditation Committee in order to “spread the workload” and proceed efficiently. If any of you would be interested in helping in this important endeavor, please contact President Dan Arndt at 608-269-1200 or firstname.lastname@example.org or Education Committee Chairman Ben Hoth at 608-386-9868 or email@example.com.
