Westchester Lutheran Church and School will dedicate its new administration and education wing during a ceremony Sunday, October 18th.

Members of the school community, residents and school alumni are invited to attend the dedication at the school, which has been part of the Westchester community for over 60 years.

In recognition of the building dedication, October 18th has been designated as “Homecoming Sunday” at the school, 7831 S. Sepulveda Blvd., Westchester. The school serves children from pre-school through eighth grade.

The event will begin with a worship service featuring alumni from a range of classes at 10 a.m. The service will be followed by the dedication ceremony at 11:30 a.m. and an Open House from noon to 1:30 p.m., which will offer alumni and the community an opportunity to tour the campus and classrooms and to learn more about the wide range of programs offered.

“Our school motto is ‘Believing and Achieving,’” explains Lisa O’Leary, president of the Parent Support Organization at Westchester Lutheran School. “We help our students do that by teaching them to honor the strength of tradition while they prepare for the challenges of the future.”

O’Leary points to the ten faculty and staff members who are graduates of the school as examples of the strong sense of community at Westchester Lutheran.

“These are teachers who had such a great experience here as students that they wanted to come back and create a similar experience for their own students,” she said.

There are also two dozen current students who are children of alumni.

“We’re honored to be part of a family’s tradition from one generation to the next,” she added.
