Cross Copy Weekly – Mar. 29, 2018

Holy Week Joy!

In his Holy Week message to the church, LCMS President Harrison said, “On that day of deepest darkness, our God was loving the world, loving you and me and all who fail Him again and again. He was loving us by giving His only Son into that horrid death so that our hate-filled, violent, rebellious race might be pardoned and given a life without end in His kingdom.

And come resurrection morn, He proclaims to all the world that its sins are forgiven, forgotten, gone! The resurrection cries out: ‘His sacrifice has been accepted – for you and for all. So rejoice!'”

As you celebrate the miracle of Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday, and Easter, savor the JOY of the cross! In His death, we have life, now and forever!

Future Engineer?

During spring break, junior Raevyn Ferguson attended the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) conference in Pittsburgh as a member of the Pre-College Initiative. Raevyn competed on the local NSBE chapter’s ten80 team in a robotics challenge. For an interesting news article about NSBE and the conference, click here. 

We commend Raevyn on her industriousness and enthusiasm!


Saturday Scholars

Seniors Alexa Halliburton, Ariana Ross, and Ryan Smith, along with chaperone Mrs. Donna McFarland, spent the past five Saturdays at the Washington University Saturday Scholars Academy. Having attended the Health Professions Fair in February, these Crusaders applied for acceptance and were selected to participate in this program.

Each morning the students attended a lecture on a different system of the body. Afterwards, the students went to an anatomy lab where they got hands on experience with a cadaver, concentrating on the system just covered. At the end of the lab they moved to the medical library to research a disease and prepare a presentation. On the final Saturday, parents attended a luncheon and viewed the students’ powerpoint presentations.

All three students will be attending the Excellence in Learning weekend at the University of Missouri-Columbia April 89, where they will see what it takes to be an actual medical student.


Bridge Program Graduates

Sixteen Crusaders have successfully completed the 2017-2018 Bridge Program Saturday Academy held on the UMSL campus the first two Saturdays of each month, October through February. The Academy offers academic enrichment courses in math, science, and communication, as well as career research, personal and professional development, college planning, and ACT preparation.

The program concluded with a recognition ceremony on March 3 at the America’s Center. Congratulations to the following Crusaders on this accomplishment: freshmen Jerrell Carter, Darrin Hill, Jackson Hurd, Briana Jackson, Bryce Oliver, Elijah Phillips, and Hope Villars; sophomores Deaven Crigler, Fred Davis, Louis Hurd, and Braiden Wade; juniors Mitchell Franklin and Erin King; seniors Joshua Gray, Alexa Halliburton, and Alida Theard.


Career Fair

LHSN held a Career Fair yesterday. Students were each able to attend two sessions to learn about different careers and programs.

Presentations included nursing, physical therapy, ministry careers, Title IX issues in college, selective college admissions, animation, cyber security, internal auditing, technology of the future, sport business, and others. Several of the speakers were LHSN alumni. What a fun morning for our students!

Scripture Verse

“but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8

Cross Copy Weekly – Mar. 16, 2018

Principal’s Posting

Lutheran North had a special treat this past Wednesday when Colonel John Hayden, St. Louis Police Commissioner, addressed the assembly of students and faculty. Chief Hayden is a 1981 graduate of Lutheran High School North, as well as a past and current parent. After graduating from Lutheran North, he earned a degree in mathematics from Washington University.

Chief Hayden shared his personal story, relating how and why he applied for his current position. While he was not as politically connected as most of the other candidates, he said he could definitely see the Lord’s hand in guiding him to this end result. Chief Hayden referenced four Bible verses which are especially meaningful to Him and said that his faith walk began – and was nourished – here at Lutheran North.

The second portion of Chief Hayden’s address pertained to current concerns such as school violence and drugs. His advice is to avoid drugs of any kind and not associate with those who use them. He also stressed the importance of putting time and effort into education.

Chief Hayden’s remarks coincide with what is taught at LHSN. Namely, that good character, moral values, and hard work, combined with a strong faith in God are what lead to one’s success. We thank Chief Hayden for sharing his time and thoughts with the LHSN community and pray for God to bless him in his difficult job.


Chamber of Commerce
Students of the Month

Congratulations to the Crusaders recently selected to be “Students of the Month” because of their high achievement in academics, leadership, and extra-curricular activities.

 Zach Hohenstein was recognized at the Northwest Chamber of Commerce luncheon and Josh Gray at the Maryland Heights Chamber luncheon. We commend both of them on this honor.


Music Accolades

On March 2, Crusaders in the Bands and Choirs participated in the District Solo/Ensemble Festival held at Parkway Central High School. These students worked very hard to learn their music and everyone did a great job! Some of the students will be playing their pieces during chapel these next couple of months. The ratings are as follows: Rating III – Satisfactory, II – Outstanding, I – Exemplary. If students receive a Rating I at Districts, they earn the opportunity to participate at the State Solo/Ensemble held in Columbia the end of April. We have two Crusaders going to State – Nate and Ted Laesch.

Here are the District results listed alphabetically by student:
Adia Buford – Snare Drum Solo, III
Lily Kate Burreson and Allie Johnston accompanist – Vocal Solo, II
Cory Keathley, Paige Liszewski, Alexander Paul – Saxophone Trio, II
Erika Kreppert, Tieryn Minor, Abigail Moore, Alexander Moore – String Quartet, III
Joshua Gray – Vocal Solo, II
Nathaniel Laesch – Trumpet Solo, I
Theodore Laesch – Trumpet Solo, I
Elijah Langford – Vocal Solo, II
Alexander Moore – Violin Solo, II
Alexander Paul – Saxophone Solo, II
Timothy Proffitt – Violin Solo, II
Zachary Roeglin – Trumpet Solo, II
Rebecca Roth – Piano Solo, II
Anthony Walker – Flute Solo, III
Carl Walker – Clarinet Solo, III


Expanding Their Horizons

Maya Johns, Jihra James, Toni McConnell, and Quiwonyen Hallowanger recently attended the “Expanding Your Horizons in Mathematics and Science” conference at Meramec Community College. The girls were recommended by their math and science teachers and accompanied by Mrs. Dixie Buford.

The conference is for girls in 6th through 10th grade and is focused on increasing young women’s awareness of career opportunities for women in math and science related fields. The program involves hands-on workshops, career panels, and input from current students who are pursuing STEM majors. The girls enjoyed the experience!


Chemistry Contest

LHSN took seven first year Chemistry students to the American Chemical Society’s annual St. Louis Regional Chemistry Contest held at UMSL on Saturday, March 10. Competition between the 19 schools consisted of a 110 minute multiple-choice exam, followed by a 30 minute tie-breaker. Crusaders found parts of the exam to be difficult, as they covered material they will not see until April and May. Many other students found the exam difficult, as well. After scores are received in several weeks, students will find out if they qualify for the next level of competition, leading up to the Chemistry Olympiad.

The students who represented LHSN were Jasmine Bibby, Brittany David, Jihra James, Maya Johns, Toni McConnell, Carl Walker, and Tony Walker. LHSN enjoys putting our best students into positions that expose them to the best students in other schools. We know that our Crusaders will always compare favorably to other students!


Little Shop of Horrors

Mushnik’s Skid Row Florists is on the brink of failure when we first visit, but a mysterious plant bought during a total solar eclipse is about to change all of that. Seymour, Mushnik’s shop assistant is suddenly thrust into the botanical spotlight, and his fame might be enough to make his beloved Audrey leave her domineering boyfriend and see him as more than just the clumsy boy she works with. Little does the group know, however, that such success often comes with very high prices.

Join us for a visit to the Little Shop of Horrors and see what fate befalls our struggling florists. Show times are Thursday-Saturday, April 5-7, at 7:00 p.m. in the LHSN gymnasium. General admission tickets at the door are $5 for adults, $3 for students. Reserved seats are $8 each and can be purchased in advance from the LHSN office (389-3100).

– $10 per person includes a bid number paddle, drinks & snacks
– Optional $30 Golden Paddles available at the door
– Bring lots of quarters and an appetizer or dessert to share

How does the Quarter Auction work?
– Each guest will be given a bid number paddle.
– The emcee will showcase an item.
– If you hope to win the item that the emcee is displaying, you should place the requested amount of quarters into the center bucket of your table and hold up your bid number paddle.
– A wining bid number will be drawn. If your bid number is called and you have placed your quarters into the bucket, you win! If your number is called but you didn’t place any quarters into the bucket, you lose that item and another number will be drawn.
– What is a Golden Paddle? Purchasing a $30 Golden Paddle bid number will automatically put you in every drawing for all the Auction items. You will not have to put any quarters in the bucket for each item. This option is a worry free way to enjoy the night. You will have the freedom to use the restroom, visit with fellow supporters, refill your food plate and drink – all while waiting for your Golden Paddle number to be called. You will still be able to win on your regular bid number Paddle also, as long as you have put quarter(s) in the bucket when that number is called.

Click here for a flyer to give to your family and friends. We hope to see you for all the fun! Please make your reservation now.

Scripture Verse

The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.” Psalm 34:18

Cross Copy Weekly – Mar. 9, 2018

Recording Artists

Concentus vocalists Paige Liszewski, Becca Roth, Lily Kate Burreson, and Allie Johnston had the opportunity to record a soundtrack for Christian Tools of Affirmation (CTA, Inc.) at Shock City Studios this past Wednesday. This is the fourth consecutive year that Crusaders have been asked to record an original Christmas song for CTA.

After comments such as “Don’t sing a note without thinking about it” and “That’s beautiful!” and many takes, a great recording was produced that will release later this summer. Mrs. Rusnak directed the girls and is proud of their professionalism. Look at all those buttons on that soundboard!


Students of the Month

Congratulations to these four Crusaders who are the February “Students of the Month” and pictured left to right as follows:

Jacob Fuller (grade 9) was nominated by Mrs. Roth, who wrote, “Jacob is doing an excellent job in Honors Geometry. He works very hard and asks insightful questions. He focuses during class and works to get the most out of every activity – no matter whether it is done by the whole class, in a small group, or as an individual. He is able to make connections between prior material and new concepts as they are introduced. He also has a very mature approach to his responsibilities and the assignments in our class.”

Jordyn White (grade 11) was nominated by Miss Bork, who wrote, “Jordyn has done an exceptional job so far in Psychology. She is interested and engaged in the subject matter and a helpful participant in class. Her homework is always done and always thorough. She scored over 100% on the last exam. Before that exam, Jordyn used the flash cards she had prepared for her own study to lead the class in a review session. Jordyn maintains this academic excellence while also being an integral part of the girls’ basketball program. Jordyn is a great example of what it means to be both a high achieving student and standout athlete at North.”

Brittany David (grade 10) was nominated by Mr. Langefeld, who wrote, “Brittany is a member of my sophomore Chemistry class. She currently has a 99% average. Brittany was able to maintain an ‘A-’ average on the quizzes naming substances and providing formulas for substances. Many students struggle with that skill, but not Brittany. It is an essential skill before moving on to more areas of Chemistry and Brittany will be well-prepared. Brittany has test scores of 99% and 103% on the tests covering quantification in chemistry and chemical reactions.” Miss Bork added “Brittany’s work in Honors Sophomore English has been commendable. She consistently turns in high quality work and takes the time to ask questions. While often quiet in class, when Brittany speaks up it is always sure to be an insightful and productive addition to the class.”

Jessica Hines (grade 12) was nominated by Miss Bork, who wrote, “Jessica is a joy to have in Psychology class. She can be counted on for thoughtful additions to the class discussion, consistently turns in high quality homework, and has done well on exams. On top of her strong academic work in the course, Jessica’s positive attitude is a great addition to the classroom. I have truly enjoyed being able to work with Jessica this semester.”


Straight “A” Tickets

The St. Louis Post Dispatch “Newspapers in Education” program and the St. Louis Cardinals award two FREE Cardinal tickets to high school students who attained a GPA of at least 3.5 for the first semester. Crusaders who qualify are listed on a poster in the main hallway and can be downloaded here. All winners’ names will appear in a special section of the Post Dispatch on Friday, April 6.

“A” Students need to pick up their ticket voucher in the LHSN office and redeem it online (instructions on voucher) or at Busch Stadium. Vouchers can be used for most Monday-Thursday home games. Tell your “A” Student to be sure to stop by the office to pick up a voucher!


Prepared Crusaders

A new law has been passed for the 2017-18 school year requiring high school students to receive 30 minutes of CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) instruction and training in proper performance of the Heimlich maneuver (or other first aid for choking). Although this law applies to students in public and charter schools, LHSN has elected to include this training in the curriculum.

To that end, during the past two weeks during Crusader Block, all senior students received 60 minutes of instruction in hands-only CPR and first aid for choking. The instruction was provided by staff members Ms. Renaud and Mrs. Mark, RN, who are both certified American Red Cross instructors. We are proud that our senior students are now able and ready to save a life!


Trouble Logging in?

On Monday, March 5, OnCampus started enforcing stricter password parameters for all users. Any users who login with an inadequate password are required to reset their password to meet these new minimum password strength requirements. Passwords must:

  • be at least 8 characters long,
  • include at least 1 number,
  • and be different from the user’s previous 3 passwords.

Please note that users whose passwords already meet these requirements are NOT required to reset their password.

It is very important for you to have access to OnCampus so you can re-enroll your student BEFORE the late fee of $500 is imposed! Please take care of this NOW, if you haven’t already done so.


Project Graduation ’18

Graduation is fast approaching and we need parents to join in the fun of planning and hosting a fantastic celebration for our seniors.

The next meeting for junior and senior parents is Tuesday, March 13, at 6:00 in the Counseling Center. Hope to see a large number of parents!
