  • Student Fund Raising – Annual School Raffle

    POPLS Parents; We will again this year host a fund-raising raffle to help raise money for the school.  The fabulous prizes donated include: a 55in Vizio flat screen TV, a Shark cordless vacuum, an Instant Pot & Cookbook, a 26in fused glass birdbath and a set of Collector Baseball Cards.
    Tickets will sell for $5 each or 5 tickets for $20; tickets will be distributed on Monday Oct 21st.  The goal is for every student to sell at least $100 worth of tickets.  Small schools like Prince of Peace depend on fund raising and donations to help fund our necessities.  The drawing will be held on November 23rd ; ticket holders need not be present to win.  There will be prizes for the student who sells the most tickets as well as random drawings and prizes for all who sell tickets.  

    Please turn your collections in weekly!


  • Every Halloween, the school parking lot is turned into a spectacle of sight and sound.  School parents, church and community members, as well as ghosts and ghouls from miles around, line up for “trunk or treat” – A ghastly way to collect way too many treats in one location.  

    Scare ya' there next October, if you dare!

    October 31st, 5:30-7:30 pm

    Tricks, Treats.  Hot Dogs and Drinks.  School and Church Open House.  

    Don't be scared - Come visit!

  • The Iowa Assessments are standardized tests administered to students in kindergarten through eighth grade in schools across the United States.  

    Prince of Peace, like many private schools, employs this series of tests in primary and secondary grades to gain information about students for instructional planning, to supplement teacher observations regarding student abilities, and to establish a basis for annual evaluation of student progress. 

    Assessments cover Vocabulary, Word Analysis, Reading Comprehension, Listening, Language, Mathematics, Social Studies, Science, and Sources of Information, all age-appropriate.

    For many years, Prince of Peace students consistently scored in the upper ranges of the IOWA Assessments.  When compared to the rest of the schools participating, our students do very well nationally. 

  • Each year we host the East Mountain Community Chorus and their presentation of Handel’s "Messiah".  Usually presented the first two weekends of December, the concert is a choral depiction of the story of the Messiah - the Saviour and Redeemer of mankind. An oratorio written by George Fredrick Handel in 1741, the "Messiah" is a traditional composition that uses sung scripture to tell the story of Jesus.  This traditional piece delights as much today as it did over 250 years ago.  

    Hallelujah to the King of Kings!

  • POP Lutheran Church & School sits at an altitude of 6,581 feet. Though only 23 min or 19 miles from Albuquerque, the average temperature is 10 degrees cooler.  The school resides in the community of Cedar Crest, population 958!  When school is in secession, the population of the community is elevated by approximately 1/2 percent!

    Wildlife is frequently seen on the POP Lutheran School Grounds.  In the past we have seen grey squirrels, owls, scrub jays, mounting blue birds, deer & even a bear cub.  Most of our wildlife though, comes in the two-legged variety & wears a backpack.
