Principal's Welcome

Welcome to our website and thank you for your interest in Shepherd of the Woods Lutheran School, a ministry of Shepherd of the Woods Lutheran Church!

By exploring this website you will see how we live out our mission, vision, and core values. When all of these come alive in our day-to-day life together, our students experience love, acceptance, faith in action, and a quality, personalized education. We use the latest technology to determine each student's strengths and weakness and to assist each student in growing their God-given gifts. We also partner with different community agencies to help support your child's learning and development.

We understand and appreciate that learning is a partnership among parents, teachers, and church community. Through this partnership, we learn and serve together in Christian love. We value open and ongoing communication among the home, school, and church.

Since the choice of your child's school is one of the most important decisions you will make; I invite you to contact me directly to discuss how our program may fit your child's needs and to come for a personal tour. Only through seeing our school in action can you truly experience our motto: Love to Learn. Learn to Love! Join us for worship and fellowship. Come be part of our family!

In His service,

Dr Madelyn M Speagle


Minister of Christian Education
