Immanuel offers a wide variety of supplementary programs to enhance academic success and social development. Through these programs our students have opportunities for challenge, achievement, and recognition for their exceptional God-given gifts.
Hearts for Jesus
Each winter we partner with many other Lutheran schools in the Michigan District to support selected ministries. Students learn about a need and we find creative ways to engage the students in each project.
- The Student Council members are elected by their homeroom classmates in early September.
- A monthly meeting is held with the administration of the school to discuss ways to improve the school, build school spirit, plan service projects, and to bring the concerns of the students to the principal.
- A monthly bagel sale by the Student Council is held to raise funds to purchase an item each year that will enhance the learning environment of the school for all students.
412 Club (Leadership, Kindness, Character)
Here at Immanuel, we stress the importance of the culture of kindness and spreading Jesus’ love to everyone we meet! The 412 Club is an opportunity for students to develop their leadership skills and to demonstrate to others their commitment to kindness.
