In addition to class choirs, the students in grades 5-8 have the opportunity to participate in the Junior Choir. The choir will sing for various church services including, but not limited to, a post-Easter concert and the PTO Taco Night/Spring Concert which is held in April.
Hand Bell Choir
St. John’s has a voluntary 8th grade hand bell choir which practices once a week at church. Their playing schedule is included in the singing schedule. In the event that we do not have enough 8th graders, we will ask for volunteers from the 7th grade.
Children have the opportunity to participate in drama presentations throughout their years at St. John’s. Grades 1-4 present a fall musical and grades 5-8 produce a spring musical.
Fine Arts Fair
Fifth through eighth grade students at St. John’s Lutheran School are encouraged to participate in the Fine Arts Fair, which is held twice a year at Luther High School in Onalaska. The Fine Arts Fair allows students from several WELS schools to compete in various academic activities. This includes vocal music, instrumental music, piano, art, math, social studies, chess, spelling, and forensics. Due to the large number of events, the fair is held on two dates. The first phase is the first Saturday in November, while the second phase is the second Saturday in March.
