It is with mixed emotions that we announce the retirement of our beloved first and second grade teacher, Mrs. Patti Kooi. It is difficult, if not impossible to sum up all the lives she has touched in her 43 years of Lutheran Ministry, 41 years here at St. John’s Lutheran Church and School. Mrs. Patti Kooi will always be remembered as a teacher who dedicated her life to sharing the love of Jesus with everyone she meet but most importantly to her students. Join us as we take the time to honor Mrs. Patti Kooi with the following Events: Retirement Luncheon Sunday, September 12, 1:00 pm- 4:00 pm. Tickets for the luncheon are on sale now. You can purchase tickets by contacting the church and school offices. If you are unable to attend this event but would still like to express your memory, blessings or well wishes to Mrs. Kooi, please contact the school office for other opportunities.
