We are excited to introduce you to two new coaches joining the LuHi Coaching Staff this Spring: Melissa Skovira our tennis coach and Brian Vickery our lacrosse coach. Let’s meet them!
Before you know it, madness will be here and both Lutheran’s girls and boys basketball teams could see themselves squarely in the thick of it as March approaches. For both teams, individual statistics won’t wow you, but their pace of play and discipline will.
Each year, the administration at Lutheran High starts looking towards next year to think through what we can add, expand, and improve to make our school even better equipped to serve students in the future. This year is no different. We are excited to share plans to expand all aspects of the school from athletic and academic to the physical building.
An average high school student will spend more than 4,000 hours at school in four years. We do not need to ask if our students will be affected by their teachers, because they will. What we need to ask is how they will be affected during this formative phase of their lives. At LuHi, our teachers demonstrate ten exemplary traits that positively impact our students for life.
So frequently in life, we are determined by our performances. We think getting into heaven looks like what Jack and Patrik had to go through to get into worship class. Unfortunately, some people think this is what it’s going to look like in heaven: a process of weighing our deeds and trying to live up to expectations.
Classroom learning today has evolved significantly from 30, 20, or even 10 years ago. Technology has been one major factor influencing the classroom. But in many instances, the students themselves are dictating classroom change.
The high school experience encompasses many elements: academics, sports, clubs, arts, friends, and teacher mentorships. At LuHi, we encourage students to fully take advantage of these critical years to define, explore, and pursue their passions.
As you know, the teenage years can be some of the best and some of the most tumultuous times. Teens need extra support from their parents. As a result, parents need extra support. Busy schedules and adolescent hormones can make you feel isolated on a lonely island of teen parenting. You need to be equipped to nurture your child and hear you are not alone on this precarious journey. Who do you turn to for help?
After a student makes it through middle school, sometimes all the parent hopes is for their child to survive high school. But LuHi has a greater vision. “If we put students in the right environment surrounded by the right people where culture matters and Christian worldview is taught, God will work through them,” says Executive Director Dan Gehrke. “I’m amazed at their faiths and I’m amazed at what they accomplish.”
