TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
To God be the glory—another school year successfully completed at the Lutheran High School of Kansas City. As we all go our separate ways, with some students and families returning to LHSKC and others departing, I would ask for your continuing prayers as we diligently prepare students for today, tomorrow and eternity. The tradition, the family, the mission that is the Lutheran High School of Kansas City marches on.
Another state champion—Senior Zac Breitkreutz won the 400 meter event at the Class 1 State Track Meet. Not only did Zac bring home the gold for LHSKC, he broke the state meet record. Congrats to Zac and his coaches, Dan Bickel and Christian Nord. The boys’ team finished seventh overall and the girls finished sixteenth. A total of nine boys and eight girls qualified and participated at the state meet. Once again, To God be the Glory!
As we race toward school opening on Wednesday, August 17th, I anticipate another year of achieving and believing for, and in our student body. The modified block schedule has been tweaked, Winterim will have new and exciting course offerings, and the coming of our 37th academic year should create a celebratory atmosphere for the 2016-2017 school year. Colossians 1:10 – “. . . live a life worthy of the Lord. . .” is the theme for next year. We continue to try and raise the visibility of LHSKC in both the Lutheran community and the community at large. Let us all try and support our school as we bring glory to God through the education of our young. The journey has never been easy, but it is well worth the effort.
Finally, we salute a fabulous outgoing class of seniors who distinguished themselves in many ways. An average ACT score of over 24, including 20 percent of the class scoring a 30 or higher, the accumulation of hundreds of thousands of scholarship dollars for university education, the compilation of numerous athletic awards, and the role modeling of Christian character as a standard of behavior were all in evidence for the class of 2016. While our job with them is complete, their journey into tomorrow and forever has just begun. We wish them God’s richest blessings as they head in a multitude of directions to continue to serve their Lord and become the foundation for Christ’s church here on earth.
Enjoy the summer and check our website often for information and updates regarding the 2016-2017 school year.
