Principal's Message                                                               


Cross Lutheran School has wrapped up another ROCK SOLID year.  Isaiah 26:4 says, “Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord God is an everlasting rock.” (ESV)  Our students, teachers, and parents excelled in a variety of ways as they trusted in the Lord, our everlasting rock.

Reached out into our community in a variety of ways.  We brought in a mountain of diapers for Options for Life; We filled care packages for the homeless in our own New Braunfels community; We collected warm winter gear for those in need; We loaded quilts for those struck by disaster around the world; We gathered unto the Lord more than $3000.00 to be sent to flood stricken Lutheran school families in Baton Rouge, LA; and much more!  Christ used the hands and feet of our little ones to bless our school, our community, and beyond!

Opened our doors to 167 students and their families.  The Gospel is proclaimed each and every day on the campus of Cross Lutheran Church and School.  Those 167 kids have a profound impact on the lives they touch, so sharing the Good News with them is like sharing it with the world!

Created beautiful art together.  Our students, drew, painted, sang, played instruments, rang bells, acted in skits, and glorified God with a host of artistic talents and abilities this year.  Our teachers know that encouraging the arts wholly supports what we do in the realm of academics and athletics!

Kept the Cross of Jesus in our sights.  Ask any student at Cross Lutheran Church and School what the cross means, and they’ll let you know that it’s where Jesus died to take away our sins.  They’ll also know that He didn’t stay on the cross, but he rose again, and promises to return for us one day.  Until then, we have the great privilege of sharing His love with others!

Sports—Our student athletes had an awesome year.  Cross Country, Football, Volleyball, Basketball, Golf and Tennis are all ways our middle school athletes strutted their Eagle pride as they worked hard to glorify God with their minds and bodies.  P.E. classes and field days were also great ways for us to incorporate sports into our daily walk with Jesus.

Opened our hearts and minds to academic challenges.  Challenges like the Private School Interscholastic Association (PSIA) competition in the spring.  Our students took 2nd place overall at our district meet, and we sent a dozen students on to compete at the state level as a result of their academic prowess.  We also had student winners in poetry contests, Patriot’s Pen essay contests, and field day academic meets.

Learned, Learned, Learned!  We learned all kinds of things this year!  Bible Study, Math, Science, Language Arts, Spanish, Music, Art, History, P.E., Library, and whole lot of other cool stuff!

Included new people into our Cross Lutheran school family.  New teachers, new students, and new families!  Our school continues to grow.  With that growth comes change.  Change is hard.  It’s sometimes scary, but we know that Cross Lutheran is a great place to grow, and the new people, ideas, and traditions that we develop are finding a home right alongside those that have been here awhile.  

Developed lifelong relationships.  One of the blessings of a Lutheran school ministry is the opportunity to build lifelong friendships.  Students graduating leave our school knowing that they have a church and school family that will always be interested in what they are doing and how God is using them to bless those around them.  Sometimes, we have conflict, but we also have forgiveness, grace, and love to share with one another because of the Rock Solid foundation we have in Jesus Christ.  It’s an honor to serve in your midst.


In Christ Alone,
