We Are Walther Newsletter, September 2022

Greetings from Walther in the name of Christ!
I am pleased to report that our 69th year is off to a great start. We opened school on August 16th, the day after hosting over 200 teachers for CLEF’s Networking Conference. 288 students are walking our halls (94 of them new to Walther this year), marking our second consecutive year of significant enrollment growth. This is our largest student body since 2017, when we welcomed much of Luther North’s Senior Class to finish their high school career with us. We have added an additional teaching position this year to help accommodate our growing student body, we welcome three new teachers in all to our fold, with most of our faculty returning from last year. We also thank God that we were able to give our teachers a 13.8% raise this year, long overdue–although it must be pointed out that they are still paid well below their public-school peers. We are so grateful for their service to our students and families.
While it is exciting to talk about growth and to quote numbers, what is even more exciting is the “what” and the “why” of our ministry here at Walther. We are welcoming our students into a Christ-centered learning environment in which our excellent teachers nurture and prepare all of our students to know Christ, to grow as leaders, to excel academically, and to discover God’s unique plan for each of them individually. Please keep us in your prayers this school year, and please come visit Walther at one of our many events, including our Homecoming Football Game vs. Christ the King on September 24th at 1:00pm!
Go Broncos!
