Biographical history

In 1958 the Rev. L. H. Gierach started the third Lutheran Christian Day School in Canada in Cloverdale, BC. A building was constructed for the school in 1958 and dedicated in 1959. There were nineteen children in four grades and Miss Marj Guebert was their first teacher. By 1961 numbers were sufficiently large enough to add an intermediate class taught by a second teacher and two years later grade 7 was added. Finally in 1968 a kindergarten class was added. The school became part of the Lutheran Church-Canada though its association with the Zion Lutheran Church congregation in 1988.
