Cross Copy Weekly – Oct. 27, 2017

 

Now Showing!

The comedy Strange Boarders continues with performances in the LHSN gym at 7:00 tonight and tomorrow (Oct. 27/28). Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for students, free for kids 5 and under. Come support our talented and hard-working Crusader thespians. You are sure to be entertained!


Army All-American

Crusader senior Ronnie Perkins was selected to play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl which will take place on Saturday, Jan. 6 at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. This very prestigious event invites 100 of the best high school football players from across the country to participate and is broadcast live on NBC. The young men selected embody the characteristics of the Army soldier – demonstrating loyalty, duty, respect, selfless service, honor, integrity, and personal courage.

Ronnie was presented his Army All-American team jersey this Thursday in a school-wide assembly. Afterwards in his remarks, Ronnie thanked God, his parents, and the Lutheran North faculty, as well as all his coaches and teammates, for their constant help, support and encouragement. The entire LHSN community congratulates Ronnie on receiving this honor!


Students of the Month

Congratulations to the following students (pictured left to right) for leading by example and being named “Students of the Month” for October.

Ellie Jander (grade 9) was nominated by Mr. Dixon, who wrote, “Ellie is an outstanding student in freshman English. She currently has the highest grade out of every freshman in the school. She stays on top of her readings and provides insightful commentary in her annotation journal and in our classroom discussions. She freely shares her faith with her peers – I was quite impressed when she was able to recite large portions of the Small Catechism in one of our classes. She was elected leader of her tribe in our recent group activity and guided her team quite well under very difficult circumstances. Outside of class, I know Ellie works hard in cross country. I also got to witness her climb the difficult rock wall at Camp Wartburg over the summer at freshman orientation. No other freshman could make it all the way up – Ellie does not back down from challenges placed before her, and the result is that she can do extraordinary things!”

Faith Borgmann (grade 10) was nominated by Mr. Langefeld, who wrote, “Faith is a member of my sophomore Chemistry class. She is always prepared for class and has earned an ‘A’ through the middle of the semester. She is very willing to answer questions as we discuss homework and other topics. She is also courageous as she asks questions during class that many other students doubtlessly benefit from, but were not willing to ask. Thus, her behavior makes class easier to teach and makes learning easier for those around her. I very much appreciate her work and her attitude.” Mrs. Burreson added, “Faith is one of my small group leaders. She is always very excited to lead small group and is very well prepared with devotions that have activities and meaningful questions. She shares her love for the Lord and her love for her peers. Faith did an outstanding job at our Faith in Action site. It was a little chaotic at times, but Faith stepped up and led and did a fantastic job. Faith is an outstanding example and leader at LHSN.”

Edward Keith (grade 11) was nominated by Mr. Langefeld, who wrote, “Ed is a member of my ACC Advanced Chemistry class and has earned an ‘A’ at the mid-point of the semester. Ed is a very active participant in class. He very frequently asks questions or offers answers and insights. His participation benefits all the other members of the class. It makes my job easier. Ed is a transfer student (from Ladue High School) but yet he fits into our upper level classes perfectly. He is highly motivated and wants to do good work. He is a great addition to our student body. It will be fun to follow his progress after graduation as he works through college and enters the work force. Ed will make positive contributions to our society.”

Tosin Ogunjobi (grade 12) was nominated by Mr. Wittler, who wrote, “I appreciate the work that it takes to succeed in Physics and Calculus, and Tosin is doing that. He is asking the pertinent questions in class, which allow for reinforcement of concepts and furthering of discussion. Tosin has also taken the lead as the senior college acceptance spokesperson. I know when Tosin comes on the intercom in the morning, it’s usually great news that another one of our seniors has been accepted to college.”


All-District 

Congratulations to freshman Taylor Robinson who has been named to the Class 2 District 5 All-District Softball Team. Taylor was the Crusaders’ pitcher and leading hitter this year, batting over .700 and leading the team in runs scored and RBI’s.


Crusaders Put Faith into Action

Last Friday, students and faculty alike boarded buses and went out into the community to lend a helping hand. They spent the morning volunteering their services at Spanish Lake Park, Food Outreach, Forest Relief of MO, and area churches, preschools, and nursing homes. Service included yard work, cleaning, packaging food, assembling playground equipment, as well as crafts, reading, and playing games with the young and the elderly. Take a look…

 


Journalism Field Trip

LHSN students in Miss Bork’s Publications class attended the annual journalismSTL Student Journalism Conference at SLU. The students had the opportunity to attend three sectionals on a variety of topics and heard keynote speaker Mike Bush, KSDK anchorman, talk about his experience as a broadcast journalist. It was a very informative and interesting day for our budding journalists: (front row) Raevyn Ferguson, Lila Kate Burreson, Shannon Ambler, Alida Theard, (back row) Diamond Young, Josh Gray, Jack Krone, Chloe Liu, Allie Huntspon, Paige Liszewski.


Reformation Celebration

In light of the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation, LHSN is in a unique position to celebrate this historical milestone, taking note of its worldwide impact – politically, socially, theologically, and artistically. What a privilege to teach all of our students about the history of the Reformation and the birth of the Lutheran faith, along with the Good News that Jesus is all we need for our eternal salvation!

Throughout the month of October, daily announcements after Chapel and a bulletin board display provided facts about the Reformation. Activities included a “Tetzel’s Pretzels” giveaway (they’re FREE, just like our salvation!), wearing flip-flops/sandals to signify “Here I Stand” (for the TRUTHS of the Gospel), and a school-wide Reformation trivia contest.

Special Chapel presentations by Mr. Fehrs and Rev. Schmidtke also focused on the Reformation. The culminating Chapel will be on Tuesday, Oct. 31, and will be lead by Rev. Michael Salemink. Rev. Salemink is the husband of LHSN Admissions Assistant, Heather Salemink, and father of freshman, Christian. Currently, Rev. Salemink serves as the Executive Director of “Lutherans for Life.” Guests are always welcome to attend Chapel, which begins at 9:30 am.

We continue to thank God for His precious gifts: Grace alone, Faith alone, Scripture alone!


Football Playoffs

The Crusader football team completed the regular season with a record of 9 wins and 0 losses, making this only the second undefeated regular season in the history of Lutheran North football (2002 was the other)! The Crusaders finished first in the Metro League with a 5-0 record. This is the first Metro League football title for Lutheran North and the first League Championship since 2002 (ABC League). The Crusaders are averaging 63 points a game, while allowing 10 points a game.

Lutheran North received a bye last week in the first round of the District Tournament. In the first round matchups, Carnahan defeated Cleveland ROTC 62-0 and Cardinal Ritter defeated Herculaneum 49-0. The #1 seed Lutheran North Crusaders will play the Carnahan Cougars tonight, Oct. 27, at 7:00 here on LaMothe Field. If the Crusaders win, they will advance to the District Championship to play the winner of Trinity (8-0) and Cardinal Ritter (9-1) on Friday, Nov. 3 at 7:00, also at LHSN.

Everyone is urged to come out and support and cheer for your Crusaders!


From the Counselors

Students registered for Saint Louis University 1818 ACC classes may chose to drop a class for SLU credit through next Tuesday, Oct. 31. With SLU, it’s all or nothing–you either earn credit for all the courses for which you are registered or for none of them. If a student wants to drop a class, he or she needs to log into the SLU account and officially drop the class.  Mrs. Burreson is available to assist.

Walk for Wellness

Lutheran North FBLA members are happy to announce the next event in the LN Battle of the Classes. Starting Monday, Oct. 23, members of FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America) and the Faculty Wellness Committee will sponsor the LN Walk for Wellness.

This competition will last for two weeks and consist of counting laps walked or run around the track after school. The idea is to promote physical wellness and encourage students and faculty to get outside to walk and socialize. Laps will be recorded individually and tallied to figure class totals. Rewards will be given for top class individuals as well as the top class total. Encourage your student to come out and Walk for Wellness over the next two weeks from 3:00–4:30!


TREND Activities

Red Ribbon Week
The Crusader chapter of TREND (Turning Resources and Energy in New Directions) is sponsoring Red Ribbon Week Oct. 23-27. An assembly with a guest speaker is planned for Monday. Each day, facts about alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs (ATOD) will be shared. In an effort to show support for living without ATOD, all students are encouraged to participate in the following:

Monday – Wear the Red Ribbon distributed in chapel; guest speaker.
Tuesday – “Put a cap on drugs” (wear a hat or cap).
Wednesday – “Team up against drugs” (wear a team sport top/jersey).
Thursday – “Shade out drugs” (wear sunglasses).
Friday –  “Be a jean-ius! Don’t do drugs” (wear jeans with uniform top.)

Operation Christmas Child
TREND is also sponsoring this school-wide project. Operation Christmas Child is a part of the Samaritan’s Purse ministry. Each small group will collect items to fill two shoeboxes to be sent to children around the world. Each group chose the age and gender of their recipient and decided what items to put in the boxes. Please remind your students to bring in their items!

If any families would like to fill a box, we have a few extras available. Boxes are due by Nov. 15 so they can be shipped in time for Christmas. This is a fun service project for our students, and we invite you to get involved!


Moms’ Club-Oct. 21

All Crusader Moms, Grandmoms, Aunts, and Friends are welcome to join us at our breakfast “Meet and Greet” Saturday morning at 9:00.

Food will be provided. Bring your favorite drink and come get acquainted! We’d love to meet you!


Flu Shots Here!

Flu shots for the seasonal flu will be offered by Shop ‘n’ Save Pharmacy at LHSN on Tuesday, Oct. 24 from 1:00-4:00 pm in the Main Office/Health Room.

A consent form must be completed to receive a flu shot. Insurance information can either be entered on the form or you may bring your insurance card with you when the shot is received. Please note that parents must sign the consent form for students age 13-17. The consent form is available in the office and can also be downloaded here.


Did You Know?

Many Lutheran North students are new drivers. Being concerned not only for their safety, and the safety of their passengers, but also wanting them to be in compliance with State of Missouri laws, here is a reminder of the Missouri Department of Revenue restrictions for 16-year-old drivers:

“License holders who are 16 years old may not drive with more than one non-family passenger unless accompanied by a parent, guardian or legal custodian.”

LHSN has a policy stated in the Handbook regarding this same issue. Students are not allowed to travel in another student’s car unless permission has been granted by the parents of both the driver and the rider. Administrative approval is also necessary. We are trying to prevent students arbitrarily leaving campus with other students without their parents’ knowledge.

Thanks, parents, for impressing these rules upon your kids… whether they be drivers or passengers!

National Merit Commended Student

Last fall over 1.6 million students took the 2016 Preliminary SAT test. This test is also the qualifying exam for the National Merit Scholarship Program. Ted Laesch has been named as Commended Student in the National Merit Scholarship Program. To qualify for this honor, Ted scored in the top 5% of the test takers, demonstrating outstanding potential for academic success.

Ted currently takes an independent study class, with Mr. Kersten as his mentor, in order to concentrate his efforts on mastering computer programming. One of the ways Ted has helped LHSN is through this avid interest in programming. Last year, at Mr. Dixon’s request, Ted wrote a program that pulls Saved to Serve data from a spreadsheet and composes individual email updates for each student. This program, though it may sound simple, is really quite complicated and has greatly reduced the amount of time it takes to inform students about their Saved to Serve progress. We congratulate Ted on his testing accomplishment and thank him for all of his contributions at Lutheran North.


Outstanding Student Leader

Rayonna Pollvogt, senior, was LHSN’s recipient of the 2017 Outstanding Student Leader Award sponsored by the St. Louis County Executive’s office. Each St. Louis County high school can select a student who exemplifies leadership, service, citizenship, and high personal standards to be recognized at a conference and luncheon at Washington University. Congratulations to Ray, who serves in a variety of leadership roles at Lutheran North.

FBLA News 

Over the last two weeks, students in Future Business Leaders of America have been promoting their first event in the LN Battle of the Classes. Throughout the school year, FBLA will promote/sponsor a variety of events meant to bring about fun competition among the classes and faculty. Rewards like dress down days and bragging rights are the motivation for students and faculty.

The first event was Penny Wars, where the premise was to collect spare change at lunches. This event was not only a competition, but also a fundraiser for hurricane relief efforts. Any change collected in the respective class jar counted positively towards that class total, while any bills subtracted from their total. With the faculty competing, the students really had to band together. The lead changed almost every day between juniors, seniors, and the faculty. The faculty was a close second heading into the final day (last Friday), but after third lunch, (even with $11 in bills against), the seniors prevailed as victors by netting over $100 in change! Over the course of TWO weeks, students and faculty donated more than $300 in change and small bills for hurricane relief! Wow, great job Crusader Nation!


Faith in Action Day – Permission Form Needed

Friday, Oct. 20 will be Faith in Action Day for all Crusaders. The entire school will venture into the community to serve God by serving their fellowman. Attendance is required, as it is counted as a regular school day. Dismissal will be at 12:00 noon. Students should be sure to dress appropriately for whatever tasks they’ll be doing. No cafeteria lunch will be served, but pizza slices and water will be available for purchase.

Permission slips must be signed in advance. This is done electronically in OnCapus. Students must show you (parents) the form on their iPad and then have you sign your name. Ask them to do this ASAP! Please don’t wait. We must have your signature in order for your child to participate.

Attention Senior Parents! Cilento, our senior photographer, will be back on campus for another session of yearbook photography on Oct. 18 from 1:30-5:30. Appointments must be made directly through Cilento. You can visit their website at http://cilentophotography.com/ or call the Chesterfield office at 636-237-2732 to schedule an appointment.
