ELS OLYMPICS

Scarville Lutheran School established in 1927. Helping students receive a Christian education.

You are invited to the 2016 ELS Olympics!  The event will be held on May 7th, in Scarville, Iowa.  There will be no rain date if the weather is inclement.  The day will begin at 8:00 a.m. in the school building for signing in, and refreshments in the basement of the church.  Opening devotion will begin at 8:30 in the church sanctuary.  After the devotion, we will dismiss the students by grade to go to their first event.  Lunch will be served after the completion of the events.
