Crusaders “Give” and “Take”
Something new has been added to the counseling center hallway! Please check out the “Give and Take” bulletin board, provided by the LHSN Culture Committee.
The “give” side of the board has suggestions for how Crusaders can do simple acts of kindness around the school for peers or teachers. Tag @lhsnstl on your social media post and Lutheran North will share your #Crusader Kindness with others.
The “take” side has many Bible verses for different emotions or situations Crusaders might be struggling with. Crusaders simply take a slip and read a helpful message from God’s Word.
Ask your student if he/she has seen the board and encourage him/her to make use of it!
Students Sink Their Teeth into Math!
Last week, students in Mrs. Roth’s Honors Geometry class were asked to use graham crackers, pull ‘n’ peel licorice, pieces of gummy worms, and toothpicks to model various Geometry terms and postulates. Using their iPads, they took pictures of their creations and labeled them. After completing those tasks, groups shared their photos. As a class, Crusaders discussed the pictures, making any corrections and prompting further questions.
Great communication, critical thinking, collaboration, and creativity in a Christian environment – all hallmarks of the 5 C’s of 21st century education! As an added bonus, it was something the students could really sink their teeth into – yum!
Breakfast is Served!
Lutheran North’s cafeteria staff now offers hot breakfast items every morning from 7:15-7:45. The inexpensive a-la-carte menu includes egg sandwiches, pancakes and waffles, fresh fruit, continental pastries, etc. Students can pay with their lunch card or cash.
