Spring Concerts – May 1 & 2
Tuesday evening, May 1, bands from our Lutheran elementary schools will combine to play several selections in the LHSN gym beginning at 7:00 p.m. This concert experience is exciting for the middle school band students taught by Mrs. Pierson and Mrs. Rusnak.
Also on Tuesday, immediately following the middle school concert, Lutheran North’s bands will showcase their talent in a variety of pieces, representing multiple styles and genres.
On Wednesday, May 2, a choral concert will feature the Crusader Chorus and Concentus, as well as the String Ensemble. Note that this concert will begin at 7:30 p.m., due to LHSN sports that day.
The theme for all the music performed in both concerts is “American Composers.” No admission is charged for these concerts and the public is invited. There will be a freewill offering at the door. Please come, sit back, relax and enjoy the beautiful music!

Congratulations to Jonathan (Jack) Krone on being named LHSN’s St. Louis Post Dispatch Scholar Athlete for 2018. Besides excelling in academics with a 3.99 GPA, Jack participated in varsity soccer and track for 4 years. He is also a member of HiSTEP, Concentus, Future Business Leaders of America, Peer Ministry Team, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Chapel Crew, and National Honor Society. In addition to all those activities, Jack has been in all 8 Crusader drama productions over the past 4 years.
Jack is a wonderful example of how Crusaders can use their God-given gifts and talents to bring glory and honor to our Savior!
St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church has an ongoing outreach program. To support their efforts, LHSN is seeking donations of any size new or gently used clothing, underwear, and shoes. Please bring items to school and deposit them in the box in the main hallway. Thank you!
Thrills & Skills at Six Flags
Mr. Wittler’s physics students put their knowledge to work at Six Flags last Friday. The class had spent the prior week studying amusement park rides and the physics concepts associated with them. Then at “Physics Day at Six Flags” they collected data from various roller coasters and circular motion rides. Students wore a data collection vest on Mr. Freeze that measured all the various forces experienced on the ride. Upon leaving the ride they got a printout of those forces to be analyzed later.
This is definitely an experience that the physics classes at LHSN look forward to every year. The lovely weather that day made it even more fun!

TREND will be hosting our second Finals Study Jam on Thursday, May 10, from 3:30-6:30 p.m. Students are invited for quiet study, group study, and tutoring/reviews from teachers.
