Educating with Christ in San Francisco since 19XX

From the Desk of Les Morris, Principal

Welcome to West Portal Lutheran School! Since 1951, West Portal
Lutheran School has existed to partner with parents, to provide a
Christ-centered and challenging educational experience for children.
We at West Portal Lutheran understand the significance of home,
church, and school working together to maximize each child’s potential
in a faith-based, safe, challenging, and loving setting; and to
explore opportunities in music, art, drama, and sports, always keeping
in mind that God wants us to honor Him through our thoughts, words,
and deeds. West Portal Lutheran School is dedicated to student
learning, which is focused on building responsibility, leadership,
character, academic skills, and the value of service.
        I can assure you that our teachers love to teach and diligently seek
to make a positive difference in the lives of our students, who I am
equally confident are eager and engaged learners. Therefore, let us go
forth together to learn, to teach, and to do all things for the glory
of God.
        The theme for the 2017-18 school year will be respect. The theme is
based on the passage from 1 Peter 2:17: “Show respect for all people,
treat them honorably, love the family of believers, fear God, honor
all authority.”
        In our various academic classes and in our student chapel services,
we will be emphasizing respect for God, family, friends, school,
environment, church and government officials, and self.
        Parental involvement and support in the life of our school are
essential. There will be numerous opportunities to add to the fabric
of the life of all of our students at both campuses such as by serving
as a room parent, a coach, a ChoiceLunch helper, or by taking book
orders for the school. If you have an area of expertise that you would
like to share with the students, please contact your child’s teacher
and principal and we would look forward to incorporating that into our
        This webpage will provide current and significant information for all
of our families. Please take the time to read all of the announcements
and, if you have any questions, please feel free to call either the
Sunset office or the Sloat office for any concerns or questions and we
will respond accordingly.
