Gates headed to UW Stockwerk Deutsch

Gates, NoelleNoelle Gates, a senior at Lakeside Lutheran High School, daughter of Andrew Gates of Madison and Terry Jacobs of Middleton, has been selected by the Department of German at the University of Wisconsin-Madison to participate in Stockwerk Deutsch for Academic Year 2019-20. She is the first from LLHS to participate in this program.

Stockwerk Deutsch is a housing program of the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The exclusive program offers immersion in the German language and culture. “I will be using German as my primary language with my floormates, and printed materials will also be in German,” says Gates. “I am required to take meals regularly with my floormates and I will also attend a for-credit seminar that is held in German.”

Gates, who will major in Textile and Fashion Design, wants to become a theatrical costume designer. “In whatever career I end up, being fluent in a second language will be a great tool,” she says. She is thankful for the German program offered at Lakeside, “Mr. Walta has a way of explaining how things are connected,” says Gates. “He is also a native speaker of the language, which helped me to learn the correct way to pronounce words.”

LLHS ready to begin ’18-19 school year

Lakeside Lutheran High School will open its doors to incoming freshmen on Friday, August 17, 2018. Freshmen begin their school year a day early to get a chance to learn their schedules, meet other incoming freshmen and explore co-curricular opportunities. Classes begin for 427 students on Monday, August 20. That’s an increase of 22 from the close of the 17-18 school year, a 5% increase. This is also a 22.7% increase in the past five years.

LL 18-19 theme

The theme for the 2018-19 school year commemorates the 60 years completed as a ministry with the phrase, “Decades of Faithfulness” that invokes Psalm 86: 11: “Teach me your way, Lord, that I may rely on your faithfulness; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name.” The theme will be a focus in devotions and other events throughout the anniversary year.

The Opening Service and installation of new faculty will take place as part of the first day’s events on August 20 at 10 a.m. in the west gymnasium. Pastor Timothy Schwartz from Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church in Columbus will offer the devotion during this special chapel service. The community is invited to attend.
