We just experienced our 27th annual “Affair of the Heart Auction” and it was another rousing success. The largest group ever showed up, 275. We praise and thank God for the awesome support for LHSKC. I would ask that everyone continue to spread the news about LHSKC and the incredible opportunities that exist for students in this place. A Lutheran High School can only operate properly with the support of functions like these. Thanks to all who supported us by working, donating, or attending this year’s auction.
We move from that event to another significant happening—PROM. This year’s prom will be held this Friday, April 29th at the Bliss Plaza in Greenwood, Mo. We will be dismissing school on Friday at 11:30 a.m. All students who plan to attend the Prom must be present at school on Friday. The address is for the Bliss Plaza is 1303 West Main Street Greenwood, Mo. The Prom runs from 7-11 p.m. The cost is $40 per person. Student Council is responsible for hosting the prom. They have raised monies this year to keep the cost reasonable for all students attending.
All guests need to be signed up in our office PRIOR to the event. Similar to last year’s prom an assortment of finger foods and hors d’oeuvres will be served from 7-9. Water, soft drinks, and desserts will be available all evening.
Once the students leave the Bliss Plaza facility after 10 p.m. they will not be allowed to return. I advise parents to communicate with each other regarding transportation, parties, and the like. Prom is an exciting event in a young person’s life, but we want it to be a safe one as well. Do not be afraid to ask hard questions of students and parents regarding post-prom activities. We will supervise from 7-11 but then we turn them over to the night. I pray our students reflect their Lord and Savior as they enjoy their evening both at the Bliss Plaza and then afterwards as well.
