Lady Crusaders Advance to Quarterfinal
After winning the Class 3 District 6 Championship last Friday, the Lady Crusaders were victorious over Metro in the Sectional game on Wednesday.
LHSN’s next opponent will be Clark County in the State Quarterfinal on Saturday, March 4. That game will be played at Warrenton High School (803 Pinckney Ave.) at 1:00 p.m. We’d love to have a crowd of Crusader fans cheering them on, but if you are unable to be there in person, the game will be broadcast live by Prepcasts STL here!

Freezin’ for a Reason!
Mr. Lorenz gave the signal and 3 brave Crusaders ran with him… straight into the frigid waters of Creve Coeur Lake! For the 11th year, LHSN participated in the Polar Plunge, an annual fundraiser to benefit Special Olympics of Missouri. On Plunge day, Feb. 24, the water was a brisk 34 degrees.
Crusader plungers this year included Cora Wallace, Chloe Liu, and Ray Pollvogt, who has plunged all 4 years of high school. Almost 500 people participated, helping to raise over $81,000 for the Special Olympics. LHSN is already looking forward to next year!
Band & Choir Tour
Crusader musicians performed well, represented LHSN admirably, and had fun in the process! The group traveled to Concordia, MO, Kansas City, KS, and Seward, NE Feb. 22-25.
Thanks to the directors, Mrs. Rusnak and Mrs. Pierson, for teaching and leading our students, and for planning and organizing the tour.
What’s the Forecast?
This past Wednesday, Feb. 28, Mr. Endorf accompanied 14 “business-minded” students to the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis for the St. Louis Economic Outlook Luncheon. Lutheran North was one of three high schools invited to this exclusive event, which was sponsored by the St. Louis Federal Reserve.
Students learned all about forecasting, not the weather, but in economic terms. Monetary policy (interest rates), unemployment rates, oil prices, CPI, GDP, and the DOW were all topics of interest as three nationally recognized economic/financial experts shared their opinions and forecasts with the luncheon assembly. This was a valuable opportunity for students to lunch and learn with professionals from all across the St. Louis area.

Project Graduation ’18

Get Your Tickets!
Lutheran Schools Day at the Ballpark will be Sunday, April 22 at 1:15 p.m. as the Cardinals take on the Cincinnati Reds.
Ticket sales are a little different this year. We are offering sections of seating for each Lutheran school (including elementary schools) so that families can be seated by school friends. We have made ordering tickets easy by setting up an online order form. On the form, families can choose from a pull-down menu to select which school they would like to sit with and support. (That school will get $2 for each ticket sold.) If you prefer to pay with cash or check (payable to LHSA), a paper order form is available here and in the school office.
Discounted tickets in the “Lutheran Schools Section” are just $20 each (face value $58). The deadline for ticket orders is Monday, April 15. Tickets will be available for pick up in the office beginning Wednesday, April 18.
Promotions on April 22 include:
• Kids age 15 and younger will receive a Players Weekend Yadier Molina Jersey AND a free ticket voucher valid for select Cardinals home games.

• The first 30,000 fans, 16 and older will receive a reusable tote bag.
