Let us be concerned for one another to help one another show love and do good. Let us not give up the habit of meeting together, instead let us encourage one another. . . Hebrews 10:24-25
I hope our parent/teacher conferences are an opportunity to support one another in the educational process of an adolescent. Times have changed, families have changed, teaching methodologies have changed, technology is constantly changing, but learning how to learn is still a significant part of advancing in this world. We may no longer use lecture and notes as the means to an end, but we still set high standards and have high expectations for our students at LHSKC. The three pronged tripod that must work together to stabilize a positive learning environment includes the parental unit, the child and the teacher. Listen, support, and encourage. To God be the Glory.
We can proudly announce that on Friday evening, February 24th, in Columbia Missouri our own Mr. Lee Rudzinski was inducted in to the Missouri High School Volleyball Coaches Hall of Fame. Lee has amassed over 600 wins in his illustrious career including two trips to the Final Four in the state of Missouri. We rejoice with Mr. Rudzinski and salute the consistency and the excellence of his volleyball coaching career.
Coach Ann Murphy, boys’ varsity soccer coach at LHSKC, has been named a Double Goal Coach winner for the state of Missouri. The Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) received over 2,000 nominations and selected 50 winners from across the country. Coach Murphy demonstrates the teaching of soccer skills and teamwork as well as the teaching of life lessons for her players. We congratulate Coach Murphy for her award.
Three LHS faculty members are engaged in their own learning process as they pursue graduate degrees. Mr. Dan Bickel is two thirds of the way through a graduate degree in Instructional Design and Technology with Concordia University Wisconsin. The degree focuses on the uses of technology within the curriculum.
Mrs. Hannah Froehlich is three fourths of the way through a Curriculum and Instruction degree at Kansas University. She is concentrating on teaching instruction as her emphasis. Also noteworthy is the fact that Mrs. Froehlich’s yearbook class has earned the National Yearbook of Excellence Award from Jostens for its work on the 2015-16 yearbook. Congratulations to all.
Finally, Mr. David Rindt has recently begun pursuing a doctoral degree through Concordia University- Portland in Educational Administration with an emphasis on transformational leadership.
Please keep these three in your prayers as they demonstrate their passion for teaching through their lifelong learning experiences.
Dr. Cary Stelmachowicz
