Every student can experience some nervousness about the upcoming school year. However, freshmen and seniors are in a particularly unique spot as they anticipate the future. Freshmen tiptoe or maybe dive into the vastly unknown high school experience, meeting new faces and classrooms and challenges around each corner. Seniors look forward to their last year of high school with mixed emotions, knowing that the next stage of life is a few months away and there is a lot to be done before graduation.
Every other summer, LuHi Teacher Mrs Loptien leads an EF Tour for a group of LuHi students, parents, and staff members. EF Tours (https://www.eftours.com/) are educational tours meant to expand student horizons as they explore a different part of the globe from their own. Students are exposed to new cultures and old history resulting in an experience they won’t be soon to forget.
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.
Earlier this summer, a group of 10 students, 4 parents and staff spent a week in El Nino, MX - about 15 miles east of Tijuana - serving the Comunidad Cristiano El Nino (CCEN) church. This is LuHi’s third year partnering with Christ for the City mission organization to serve the community. CCEN, led by Pastor Daniel Nunez, works with a ministry called Kingdom Builders which is part of a larger ministry, Ministerios Transformacion (TM).
Teachers spend their summers laying on their couches playing Fortnite, right? Not quite. After spending about 275 days with you, their wonderful students, they need to make up for lost time! Many teachers travel, but summer is also a time to catch up on work and further their teaching skills.
What do liquid nitrogen, Vex Robots, and perennial state bound coaches have in common? The Lutheran Lions Summer Camps! Lutheran High School offers a great variety of summer camps throughout the summer to accommodate your son or daughter’s interests and busy schedules.
A blessing is a sending out. As when the church sends out missionaries with prayer and words of encouragement, LuHi wants to give the same gift to our graduating seniors. As Mr Stelling, our Senior Blessings Coordinator, says, “What better way to send out our senior class than with a blessing?”
It may not feel quite like Spring since we are only a few weeks removed from the Christmas Break, but we know that the great state of Colorado will bring sunshine and 70 degree days before we know it. Mark your calendars with these events to look forward to this semester.
The transition from Fall to Winter brings with it many changes - cool breezes turn to Colorado snowstorms and fashionable Fall outfits turn to mittens and snowpants. LuHi transitions between the seasons as well, so we wanted to give you some dates to remember to keep your calendar seamless as we head into Winter.
