Additional information for this website is welcome. Contact Judy Maginnis Kuster
Madison Lutheran School, located between Jennifer and Spaight Streets in Madison, Wisconsin, began in 1945, as a "Synodical Conference School" supported by several Madison area Lutheran churches in the Missouri (now LCMS), Wisconsin (now WELS), and "old Norweigen" Synods (now ELS).
On Tuesday June 20, 1950, at 1:30 p.m. Miss Buchholz hosted a get-acquainted party for perspective first graders. The invitation read, "There will be games, lunch, and a movie. The purpose of the party is to acquaint the children with our school and with the teacher, Miss Esther Buchholz. The mothers and the younger brothers and sisters are cordially invited to accompany the guests of honor." Children attending from Our Saviour's included Ruth Oesleby, Barbara Prescott, and Judy Maginnis who became a part of the first grade class that entered in the fall of 1950.
