ESL Class

Beginning on May 2, St. Thomas will host a weekly evening English as a Second Language (ESL) class. This class is designed to serve those in the north valley who work during the day. The class will be facilitated by Jose Valera, an experienced leader of ESL classes and a life coach. Jose is a paraprofessional at Hemingway School in Ketchum, where he has assisted in the English Language Development department since August 2023.

The classes will be held on Thursdays from 7-8 PM in Classroom One.

In order to ensure that our facilities are properly managed, we will need volunteers to be available on site during the class to help resolve any facility issues. If you are able to assist in this project, please contact Stefanie ( in the church office to sign up.
