"Sing and make music to the Lord." Psalm 27:6

Here at Immanuel Lutheran School we have many opportunities to live out these words!

During music classes we actively discover elements of music such as rhythm, pitch, note reading, composition, etc... all while singing, dancing, and praising the Lord. In addition, we experience music through playing a variety of instruments including boomwhackers/drums/percussion (4K- 2nd grade), recorders (3rd grade), xylophones, (4th grade), choir chimes (5th grade), and the piano (6th grade). Along with these separate weekly music classes, music is woven throughout many areas of the curriculum. There's nothing like learning your addition facts to a bouncy tune! Over the past years, Immanuel Lutheran School has also been blessed to participate in the "Opera for the Young" program as well as the Central Wisconsin Symphony Orchestra - Dorothy Vetter Memorial Educational Concerts.

Students can expand and share their musical interests outside of the classroom by participating in a variety of music opportunities:

  • K-Grade 5 Worship Singing at Immanuel Lutheran and St. Luke's Lutheran churches
  • Wisconsin Rapids Area Band (Grades 4-8)
  • Immanuel Lutheran School Handbell Choir (Grades 5-8)

  • Literature

    At Immanuel we offer two book club opportunities for our students.

    Caldecott Club: 4K-Grade 3

    We choose 20 books with strong possibilities for winning a Caldecott award. These books are then circulated throughout the classes, and the students vote each month on the ones they like best. At the end we take the favorites and have the kids do a final vote. Immanuel's Caldecott winner for the 2010-2011 school year was Chalk by Bill Thomson. Most of the students just enjoy reading great new books while the older students also learn a bit about illustrations and winning the Caldecott Award for unique and original illustrations.

    Fiction Addiction: 4th-6th Grade

    We meet about once a month after school at 3:45 to talk about the book we read and do a fun activity that coincides with our book (trivia, short dramas, online games, online trivia searches, graphic novel illustrations, etc.), and of course have a snack.


    Art continues to be an important part of the curriculum here at Immanuel. Our art teacher, Ruth Macomber, teaches art to Kindergarten through Eighth Grade. Check out some of our student's work by visiting the photo gallery here.

    Recently Mrs. Macomber finished illustrating three childrens' books for an author in Wausau. Two of the books are already published and are for sale in various bookstores. The third book comes out in November. "If I Lived in the Jungle" and "If I lived in the Ocean" are the titles of the first two books. These books are for ages two through seven. According to Mrs. Macomber, "It was a real challenge and a fun project for the summer. Amy was a nice person to get to know." Amy Kaiser, author and mother of three small children, always wanted to write, and has thus fulfilled her dream. Her books can be found on ebay or amazon.
