SALT for 2023 – 2024

Wednesdays after school from October 4, 2023 to May 22, 2024.

The SALT tutoring and mentoring program is a FREE ministry of St. John’s Lutheran Church.  We enjoy activities, snacks, and a variety of learning centers.  Our focus is on helping students improve their basic skills in reading, language arts, math, and writing.  Our focus is helping first and second grade students improve the things they are learning in school, such as telling time or understanding money.  Every SALT Day ends with a special devotion.

  • Parent and student commitment to the program leads to success! Weekly attendance is expected.
  • Please let us know if your child will require bus transportation to the program after school.
  • Transportation is available from Bonner School via Grisim Bus for one of their tokens.
  • If your child will be absent, call the church office at 507-533-4420.
  • Parents, it is your responsibility to pick up your child by closing time. Pick your child up promptly at 5pm as other church programs follow SALT.
