These vets—and Lakeside alum—attended the Veterans Day event held on Wed. Nov. 6.

Lakeside Lutheran High School hosted a Veterans Day event Wednesday, November 6, that featured an introduction to and speech from State Senator Scott Fitzgerald.

Eighty-six guests spent the morning at Lakeside. The veterans in attendance represented more than half a century of military service, from World War II to the conflicts and wars in Korea, Vietnam, the Persian Gulf, Iraq, and Afghanistan. After a breakfast and social time for veterans and their guests, Principal James Grasby greeted the veterans and introduced Senator Fitzgerald, who served in the U.S. Army Reserve for 27 years.  Fitzgerald expressed his thanks to the veterans in attendance and to those currently serving. Addressing the students before chapel, he encouraged them to consider serving their country through the military.

A special Veterans Day chapel service, presided over by Pastor Tony Schultz, from St. Luke, Watertown, and Pastor Mark Toepel of the Lakeside faculty, included the honored veterans as well the entire student assembly, faculty and staff.

Students show off brain power

Nine teams of 15 students came together in Belleville on November 4 to compete in the annual Academic Bowl.

Total silence. That’s what happened when the Academic Bowl team logged into the bit.ly and started taking the written test portion of the Academic Bowl competition.

After concentrated efforts, students closed their chromebooks, stood up, and silently left their respective testing rooms.

Students took preliminary tests in English, science, and social studies. Belleville High School provided a taco bar for dinner. The competition then moved into the gym and on to the Oral Rounds.

During the orals, each category made up of all 4 grade levels had 20 questions to answer— and only 15 seconds to answer each question. They competed in English, science, social studies, and current events. The current events section is the one that kept the team from a second place finish . . . who would have thought that Khloe Kardashian’s prom date was important enough to be included in current events.

Volleyball benefits Tomorrow’s Hope

The Lakeside Lutheran High School volleyball teams and a crew of parent and other volunteers raised $2,966.00 for Tomorrow’s Hope on the evening of their conference match against Columbus High School on October 1. The event, called “Volley for Hope,” raised funds through raffles and concessions as well as a variety of sales: mums, pumpkins, concessions, t-shirts and a bake sale. The night also featured recognition of Lutheran grade school volleyball teams from surrounding communities (see photo gallery).

Tomorrow’s Hope, headquartered in Jefferson, is a non-profit that supports local health care organizations who help those touched by Alzheimer’s, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and other life-limiting illnesses. They also foster health-related research, education, and support activities.

The 2019 Warrior varsity team, Capitol North Conference champions for the 7th straight year, begins its #2 regionally-seeded journey in the WIAA state tournament when it hosts Clinton High School on Tuesday, October 22 at 7 p.m.

Teens provide meals for foster families

Members of the Lakeside Lutheran Teens for Christ service organization met recently after school to make meals to support area foster families. Several teens assembled “freezer meals” that included chicken casserole and dessert that will be provided to area foster families. As these families serve their community by caring for children in need, Teens for Christ wish to serve them by lightening their load at mealtime.

TfC 2019 foster meals project (1)

Senior Elise Meier from Watertown, co-president of Teens for Christ, worked with Mrs. Kessia Boche, Kingdom Workers Foster Support Coordinator, to coordinate the event. Boche and Mrs. Ruth Hirschfeld, Teens for Christ faculty advisor, supervised the teens during meal assembly. Students making the meals (pictured above, L-R) included Laura Zank, Juneau; Lydia Buxa, Oconomowoc; Annika Bilitz, Cottage Grove; Keira Thurnbauer, Lake Mills; Madelyn Plitzuweit, Oconomowoc; Megan Grambsch, Columbus; Megan Reinke, Watertown; Emma Statz, Helenville; Harmony Schmidt, Watertown; and Brynn Boche, Watertown. The service project was also supported with grant dollars from the Thrivent Financial Action Team program.

Lakeside Lutheran Teens for Christ is an education and service group that focuses on pro-life issues, and commits itself to service projects. The group is comprised of more than 150 Lakeside students and meets regularly throughout the school year to discuss life issues and plan activities that relate to the topic. These and other teens have or will participate in a shoe drive for Samaritan’s Feet that supplies children with shoes for school; “New Friends,” an afternoon to have fun with special needs individuals; visits to residents at nursing homes and assisted living facilities; volunteering at Second Harvest Food Bank in Madison; serving at the Watertown Alpha Resource Center gala, and more.

Loppy’s provides pizza and proceeds

Like any normal Thursday, the varsity football team had its team meal, but this time it was a little bit different. On Thursday, Sept. 26, Loppy’s Hiawatha Inn not only catered a delicious meal to the team, but also gave all of the profits back to Lakeside as a donation to Operation Go.

The whole thing started when Loppy’s offered to provide the coaches a fish dinner before the game, but Coach Asmus asked if they could do it as the Thursday team meal.

The restaurant is too small for everybody to fit, so Carl and Laura Loppnow brought the food to Lakeside. They provided pizzas, shredded pork, and scotcheroos as dessert for only $10 per person.

They wanted to help support Operation Go only because of their love for Lakeside. Pastor Helwig commented, “I think it’s cool. They’re only doing this because of their love for the program. And that’s what Op-Go in the future will be about.” 

Operation Go also received a $500 check from the Ladies’ Guild at St. Paul Lake Mills after the Op-Go students gave a presentation there.
