Save $$ by Re-enrolling Now
If you haven’t completed the re-enrollment process for next year, please do so ASAP. Your prompt cooperation will be greatly appreciated and for your benefit. The registration fee increases March 16. Pay $250 now; $300 after March 15.
The process can be completed online anytime, but if you’d like to complete the re-enrollment process here at LHSN, you may do so on Tuesday evening, March 7, from 7:00-8:30. Assistance will be provided.
As LHSN Science Department Chairman, Mr. Langefeld received an invitation to attend the preview of an IMAX movie entitled “Dream Big – Engineering Our World” at the St. Louis Science Center on Feb. 25. He asked interested students to join him and Chloe Liu (junior) was able and happy to oblige.
The movie explored the engineering of the Great Wall of China, the stunning Shanghai Tower which twists 120° as it rises 127 stories above street level, an underwater robotics challenge, earthquake tolerant buildings, and many more engineering feats.
The movie was introduced by Steve Burrows, a world renowned engineer. Mr. Burrows, with over 30 years of engineering experience, led the engineering of Apple’s planned headquarters in California, the Beijing Olympic Stadium, and the City of Manchester Stadium in the UK. After the movie, Chloe had the opportunity to have a lengthy one-on-one conversation with Mr. Burrows and obtain his autograph. She was also able to explore many engineering displays at the Science Center. Chloe left with a great deal of enthusiasm about a future in engineering!
Students of the Month
Congratulations to the Crusaders chosen to be the February “Students of the Month,” pictured left to right as follows:
Elijah Langford (Grade 9) was nominated by Ms. Ambler, who wrote, “Elijah is a very hardworking and excellent student. He is never afraid to raise his hand and ask questions if he needs clarification. Elijah will come in before or after school to get extra help. Elijah is the student that earns the highest scores on quizzes and tests out of all my Spanish I classes. He is a true joy and a blessing to have in my class, as I am sure he is to all of his teachers here at LHSN.” Mr. Schoedel added, “Elijah has emerged as a leader in his Biology class. He is engaged in class, both asking and answering questions. He’s been on top of his homework this semester and scored very well on tests. His current grade in Biology is over 100%.”
Secondo Kaka (Grade 10) was nominated by Mr. Pomerenke. “Secondo is an excellent student who enjoys engaging in thoughtful conversation about historical and current topics. Secondo is always asking a question, thinking beyond what’s in front of his face. Secondo has a great sense of humor and loves to apply comedy to whatever topic we may be talking about at the time. Secondo currently has an “A” in Honors World History and is an integral part of our class.”
Ted Laesch (Grade 11) was nominated by Mr. Dixon who wrote, “Ted was helping me send out emails for Saved to Serve hours when he had the idea of writing some code to automate the process. He came to me the next day with a program he had written to streamline the process. Since that time, I have asked him to incorporate new features, and he has been happy and excited to help. I also had Ted as a freshman and a junior in English class. He is a quiet student, but he always works hard.”
Abigail Spann (Grade 12) was nominated by Miss Bork who wrote, “Abby has been an incredible member of the yearbook staff this semester. She has taken a leadership role with the senior pages in the book and has been very proactive about gathering information, taking pictures, completing pages, and following up with her fellow students to ensure that the section is done and done well. She even keeps me on track with all the work. Thanks to Abby’s work, the section is sure to be outstanding. Abby is a great example of what it means to be a Crusader.”

Orders can be turned in through March with delivery by the end of April.
Golden Paddle Quarter Auction
All LHSN supporters (over 21 years old) are invited to the Golden Paddle Quarter Auction on Friday, March 31, in the Crusader Cafe at 7 pm (doors open at 6:30 pm). To make a reservation, please send $10 per person to the school office. Golden paddles will be available for $30 the night of the event. Please bring an abundance of quarters and an appetizer to share. The Mothers’ Club will provide nonalcoholic and alcoholic drinks, desserts and fun!
There are wonderful auction items, such as (4) Cardinal tickets to Lutheran High Day at Busch Stadium! If you would like to donate an item, please email Jackie Branneky, email@example.com. All proceeds go to the LHSN Mothers’ Club to purchase non-budget items for the school, students, and staff.
How does the Golden Paddle Quarter Auction work? When you arrive the night of this fun event you will be given a paddle with a number on it. When the auction begins the emcee will show and describe a wonderful auction item. The emcee will then tell the crowd how many quarters to place in the bucket sitting in the center of each table to be eligible to win that item. A number will be drawn and called out. Whoever has that number AND placed their quarter(s) in the bucket, WINS! If the holder of the number called did NOT place quarters in the bucket for that item, they lose out and another number will be called for that item. To make sure you don’t miss out on winning any of the auction items, Golden Paddles (with numbers on them) will be available at the door the night of the event for $30. By purchasing a Golden Paddle you don’t have to place any quarters into the bucket. You will automatically WIN any item(s) drawn having your golden paddle’s number. If you have any questions or donations, please email Jackie Branneky firstname.lastname@example.org.
