LuHi parents have decked the hallways with boughs and holly, teachers are whistling tunes of lore, and students have visions of sugar plums (final tests) dancing in their heads. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at LuHi! Before we disperse for break on December 21st, there are many festive ways we get to celebrate the birth of our Savior with our school family.
“Black Friday” - the day following Thanksgiving - generated over $1,000,000 in online sales per minute! That day through the following Monday, now referred to as “Cyber” Monday, captured 20% of all online holiday shopping. Forecasts suggest the average U.S. consumer will spend $1,007 this year on gifts, food, decorations, and Christmas cards during the November-December holiday season.
In many ways, the four years that students spend at LuHi go by in a flash. High school is a time to cherish, but we also aim much higher. Every member of the Lutheran High faculty and staff wants to prepare our students for college and for life.
Annabelle is a sophomore at LuHi. What does a typical day look like for her this semester?
Finding the best school to academically nurture and challenge your children is critical to their success. For many families, paying for that academic investment in their children is a major stressor.
You want your child to do his or her best throughout high school. What parent wouldn’t? At Lutheran High, we are committed to providing the best curricula and learning environment possible for our students to excel.
In this day and age, it’s easy to swipe a phone screen to message a friend, post an Instagram pic or send a Snapchat. Our phones are never out of reach and our connections are always within reach. And why not? It makes friendships easier, right? We talk to people more often—maybe even to God, since our Bible app is on our screen and can be accessed anytime, anywhere.
When we meet with engaged parents who are invested in their children’s academic success, we often field questions about advanced placement — or AP — classes. AP classes were created by the non-profit College Board (If that name sounds familiar to you, it could be because they also run the SAT) in the 1950s to give high school students an opportunity to complete entry-level college work.
What have you been up to since you graduated from Denver Lutheran High?
After graduation, I attended Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, WA where I received a BFA in Communication with a graphic design emphasis. I graduated in 2001 looking to get into the web design industry. Unfortunately this was right after the dot com bubble popped, so I ended up in the service industry for a few years. After meeting my future wife, I decided to go back to school at the Art Institute of Seattle where I studied Interactive Media Design. During my time there I got an internship with a small advertising agency and was hired after I graduated.
