LEST is a significant event in our school’s year.  Our 5th through 8th graders compete at LEST in a wide variety of Athletic and Academic events.  LEST is held every Presidents Day Weekend at Concordia University in Portland, OR.


With a huge gathering of students and schools, and wide range of events, LEST can be chaotic if you’re not prepared.

This page provides links to schedules, directions, and general information to make your LEST experience easier to navigate.

First, the LEST Home Page  is where you can find official schedules, directions, and more provided by Concordia University.

Secondly, the links below are specific to our school.
