PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

Dr. StelmachowiczEven youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.  They will soar on wings like eagles. . . Isaiah 40:30-32

On May15th we celebrated an exciting ending to another school year at Lutheran High.  Our largest graduating class ever, 39, proudly walked across the stage and received diplomas for their accomplishments.  Congratulations to our newest alums.

Congratulations are also in order for our girls and boys track teams who also completed a successful season by sending 15 athletes to the state meet.  All-State medals were earned by 12 of our athletes. Congratulations to coaches Dan Bickel and Christian Nord for their efforts in leading such a young team to such lofty heights.  To God be the glory!

As we race toward another school opening on Thursday, August 16th, I anticipate another year of achieving and believing.  The schedule has been tweaked, we have new, exciting course offerings, new faculty additions, and the milestone of our 38th academic year in 2017-2018.  We continue to try and raise the visibility of LHSKC in both the Lutheran community and the community at large. 

As we enter summer and continually monitor the growth of our teen clan, let us consider the disturbing societal trends that tempt our youth.  Social media, children physically maturing into young adults, and society’s overall disdain for Biblical truths all set the stage for potential trouble and heartbreak in a teen’s life.  Be vigilant, be consistent, and be loving with your care for your child in these formative years.  The goal is not popularity, but rather a strong, consistent message to our children.  They are children of God.  We should not and cannot dismiss the breaking of state laws as “teens will be teens”.  I want to be clear with a message here.  LHS does NOT tolerate underage use of alcohol, drugs, or tobacco.  Co-curricular activities (sports, drama, NHS, etc.) are privileges, not rights of high school students at LHS.  Clearly, there needs to be continual communication between parents and between parents and the school.  Do not be afraid to ask the hard questions of your child regarding “who, what, where, when”.  A lack of communication can create more pain, more disappointment, and more stress for all involved.  The goal is not to punish, but to forgive and encourage.   Isaiah 40:30-32  “Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.  They will soar on wings like eagles...”  Just like their parents, our youths will make mistakes.  They will fall to temptation and we need to be there to forgive them, pick them up, and send them back onto the path of righteousness for His sake.

Later this summer look for updates regarding minor dress code changes, new faculty additions, sports practice dates, and a bevy of information for the upcoming school year.

In His Service,

                                                                                         Dr. Cary Stelmachowicz
