History-making student teacher on campus

This quarter, Lakeside Lutheran is privileged to have student teacher Annalies Brander on campus. Mrs. Hirschfeld is mentoring Miss Brander in the Extended Learning Center this spring. Annalies, who is double majoring in Early Childhood Education and Special Education, is from Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

She hadn’t considered special education until she worked at a Jesus Cares camp. “It was so rewarding,” she says. “So I started taking all the classes.”

Considering that she is majoring in early childhood education, she was surprised by how much she enjoys working with high schoolers. “I wasn’t fond of high schoolers when I was in high school, so I was terrified when I found out I’d be going to a high school,” she admits.

But the Lakeside students and her experience so far has changed her mind. “It’s going really well,” she says. She enjoys getting to know the students she works with in study hall. I love finding out “how I can best help them and how they can succeed.”

This means “I’ve had to relearn things, like pre-Algebra,” she says. “I also have to learn how to explain things in many different ways. What might make sense to me doesn’t make sense to someone else,” she says. “It’s taught me to be very, very flexible.”

Miss Brander is the first special education student teacher sent out by Martin Luther College and we couldn’t be happier that she is here! Be sure to stop by the ELC and welcome her!

Lakeside Lutheran has chosen its representatives for the 2017 Badger Boys and Girls State Conferences in June. The reps for the class of 2018, pictured L-R, are Emily Raymond, Matthias Winters, James Neuberger and Emma Guld.

Ranked first academically in his class of 2018, James Neuberger has been part of the math team for three years, the Academic Bowl for two, and sings with the school’s traveling A Cappella Choir. He has participated in cross country, basketball, track and soccer. A member at St. Paul, Lake Mills, he is part of Teens for Christ, participating in school and community service projects throughout the school year. With perfect attendance and no tardies for all three years, he is planning to study for a degree in Pharmacy. “It’s an honor to be selected for Badger Boys State,” says Neuberger. “I appreciate that my efforts in the classroom have been recognized by teachers and administrators. Badger Boys State will give me the opportunity to find out more about myself and what I’m capable of accomplishing in the near future. Outside of school activities, he also works for the City of Lake Mills Parks Department. When asked what he was most looking forward to learning or experiencing at BBS, Neuberger replied, “I’m looking forward to further development of my leadership skills and a better understanding of the government process.”

Matthias Winters, ranked 6th in his class, has served as the class vice president for three years. He participates in concert band, jazz band, marching band, and A Cappella Choir. He has received two state first place medals at WSMA for piano and two outstanding musician awards for trombone. In addition, he participates on the math team and in the Academic Bowl, is the charter president of the Lakeside Lutheran STEM Club and writes for the student newspaper. For sports, he has participated in three years of football, two years of basketball, and one of baseball and two in track. A member at St. Luke, Watertown, Winters is part of the youth group, church band, and co-ed softball at church, and serves as an usher. He will also participate in OperationGo, the school summer mission trip program. He works as a cart-pusher at Walmart in Watertown. Winters plans to major in Industrial Engineering and minor in business at Milwaukee School of Engineering, while also doing the Reserve Officers Training Corps. He sees the opportunity to attend Badger State, “as an honor and a great opportunity to meet lots of kids who all have a bright future. This selection shows me that my teachers think highly of me and I can’t take that for granted,” he said. He is most looking forward to experiencing the elections. “I think it will be fun trying to run for the different offices.”

Emma Guld has participated in math meets, Academic Bowl, Forensics, Teens for Christ, and the school drama production each year. She participated in cross country, basketball, and band for two years. This year, she is part of FFA and STEM Club. Emma volunteers for the National Academy of Television and Sciences, and received two Emmy awards at Chicago Midwest Emmys for work on “Into The Outdoors.” Ranked 2nd in the class, she is considering becoming a dentist and eventually an orthodontist. Currently, she has a part-time job at the afterschool care program at St. Paul, Lake Mills, where she is a member. “I think that Badger Girls State will be a fantastic opportunity to learn from other people who have leadership roles in Wisconsin,” she says, and is “most looking forward to learning more about leadership with other girls that share a lot of the same interests that I do.”

Emily Raymond, a self-proclaimed “hard worker,” proves her claim. A member of the state championship forensics team, drama, and Teens for Christ for three years, she has also participated in track for two years and volleyball for one. She is making her second trip with OperationGo this summer. In service to the community, she has organized a book drive for a hospital clinic, volunteered at Second Harvest Food Bank, participated in Operation Christmas Child, been a “buddy” at the “Night to Shine” prom for those with intellectual and developmental disabilities, organized a food drive for local food pantries, and caroled at Bethesda group and Willowbrook nursing homes. At her church, Peace in Sun Prairie, she teaches VBS, serves meals, helps with Advent by Candlelight, and is a member of the Youth Group. Working as a cashier in Sun Prairie, she plans to attend Martin Luther College in New Ulm, MN, to pursue a double major in elementary and special education. “It is a great honor to be chosen for BGS. I love to try new things, and this is not like anything I have ever tried before,” she says. “I am really looking forward to meeting other girls from all over Wisconsin! I am also excited to learn how to be a better leader. (I’ve heard that the food at BGS is pretty good too.)”

Badger State Government and Leadership Conferences are an opportunity for students entering their senior year of high school to put the principles of democratic government into action during a weeklong assembly. Sponsored by the Wisconsin American Legion and its Auxiliary, the goals of Badger State assemblies are to prepare young men and women of high school age for citizenship in a modern world, teach principles of democracy, instill a love of country and desire to preserve our government. Schools are encouraged to select representatives based on a combination of interest shown, leadership qualities, character, fitness, scholarship and extra-curricular activities.

Warrior FFA Celebrates National Week

Joining over 600,000 FFA members from across the nation, Lakeside Lutheran Chapter members will lead the school in a celebration of National FFA Week February 19-25.
To kick off the week, Lakeside Lutheran FFA Alumni invites all interested parents and supporters of career education to meet in the Lakeside Lutheran Tech Ed room on Sunday, February 19, from 1-4 p.m. to hear about activities from throughout the year. Pizza will be supplied.
Official FFA Week activities begin Monday when Lakeside FFA members gear up for the celebration by working with almost 200 kindergartners who visit the campus on the annual KinderFest day. FFA students teach the children about unique foods grown and made in Wisconsin, as well as facilitate interaction with a variety of small and large animals.
On Tuesday, the winner of the second annual coloring contest will receive a $20 gas card. A thank you breakfast is also served to faculty and staff, and the monthly meeting is held that night. On Wednesday, FFA members wear official dress and chapter t-shirts, and distribute a Hershey kiss with a fact card that highlights reasons to join FFA and dispels common myths that members have to live on a farm or are required to show a project at the fair.
Throughout the week, “Ag Trivia” will be played during two of the lunch periods, and a race to eat ice cream cups and drink a pint of milk will fill the remainder of the week. Students may also participate in the before-school “Ag Olympics,” which includes nail-hammering, bale throwing and lassoing, and frozen chicken bowling. Winners receive candy bars.
 
LLHS FFA bale toss 2016
The Lakeside Lutheran Chapter will celebrate National FFA week with a variety of fun activities such as a bale tossing competition, February 19-25.
 
The Lakeside Lutheran FFA chapter, chartered in 2015, has grown to 46 members who attend leadership conferences, organize service projects, and develop projects related to animals, plants and natural resources in and outside of the classroom. Members can compete in career development or judging events in areas such as veterinary science, dairy products, floriculture and livestock.
FFA speaking contest winners 2017
Competing at the District FFA speaking contest in Palmyra-Eagle High School on February 13 were (L-R), Matt Gunst, 2nd in FFA Creed recitation, Caitlin Condon (part of parly pro team, see below), Emily Weber, 2nd in Extemporaneous Speech, and Nick Voigt, who along with Condon, Mindy Meske, Emily Meske and Madeline Mielke (not pictured) were the 1st place parliamentary procedure team.  The top two finishers in each category compete in East Troy on March 15 at the Section 10 speaking contest.
Designated in 1947 during the week of George Washington’s birthday for his legacy as an agriculturist and farmer, National FFA Week aims to share the advantages of FFA membership and show appreciation for the diversity of careers relating to agriculture as it feeds, clothes and fuels the world’s population. FFA is the world’s largest youth organization, creating leaders who explore careers through ag and technical education. From its start in 1928 in Kansas City, MO, with 33 young men, National FFA now offers a variety of awards, including over $2.1 million in scholarships annually.

LLHS waits out semester by giving back

The month of December – – often called Advent, or “ coming”—brings more than one connotation at Lakeside Lutheran High School. As with the traditional Christian term that refers to a time of waiting for the Savior’s birth to come or arrive, the final month of a semester brings other sorts of anxious waiting for high school students, such as final grades and a welcome break from studies. Lakeside students filled the wait this year with several activities that held a spirit of gratefulness and giving back, including a bake sale, food drive, mission offerings and volunteering events.

bake-saleEvery last crumb was sold during a 2-day bake sale that raised $336.06 by the school’s Teens for Christ group December 6–7. Dozens of students brought in hundreds of pre-packaged home-baked goodies and sold them before school to other students and staff. Thrivent Financial added to that total through a $250 action team grant. Funds raised are supporting a VBS in Linares, Chile, in January, under the auspices of WELS Kingdom Workers; Lakeside teens bought school and other supplies and arranged for their transport to South America.

Dozens of sophomores in Pastor Clark Schultz’s religion classes have helped churches in the Madison area during December weekends. Teens volunteered at Good News Ev. Lutheran Church in Mt. Horeb and Resurrection Ev. Lutheran in Verona in their efforts to deliver goodies and invite the community to Christmas services. Other sophomores volunteered with “Christmas for Kids” weekends at Abiding Shepherd Ev. Lutheran Church in Cottage Grove, where the church provided activities for community families.

SONY DSCOn December 13, dozens of National Honor Society members and Teens for Christ helped Mrs. Sandi Corlett, the LLHS Family and Consumer Education teacher, wrap “shoebox gifts” for homeless and families in need in Madison. This was part of a larger family effort for the Corlett family. All year long, the Corletts, including four adult children and their families, gather personal care items, school supplies, toys and clothing. Sandi Corlett and others donated items, boxes, gift wrap, labels, tape—enough for 325 shoeboxes this year.

Teens for Christ also organized an all-school food drive for the Lake Mills Food Pantry that brought in more than 400 non-perishable food donations for the community. The drive ended this week and donations will be delivered in the coming days.

Student Council organized an end-of-semester mission offering in chapel on Fridays that asked students and staff to help supply an Ethiopian village whose students need school supplies and equipment. A Lakeside council member visited the village during a mission trip last summer and was able to educate the student body to the need. The effort raised over $1,000.00.

SONY DSCDecember also brought the excitement of announcing a new summer of “Operation Go” mission trip teams. Thirty-two juniors and seniors were assigned to one of six trips across the country to assist congregations with outreach efforts, including WELS churches in Alaska, Texas, Idaho, Louisiana and New Jersey. These students will spend coming months volunteering and spreading the word about the opportunity before them in order to help fund the soccer camps and vacation Bible schools they will help organize and run next June through August.

Finally, even after semester exams are finished, students in the Lakeside Lutheran National Honor Society chapter plan to Christmas carol at nursing homes in Lake Mills and Watertown on December 23. That’s a service project that always ends up being a win-win as the singers enjoy their time as much as those listening do.

The entire staff and student body at Lakeside Lutheran High School wish all those in our communities a blessed Christmas and Happy New Year.

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it

Although this adage was used for years, it was popularized in the 1970s. In context, the speaker referred to government trying to fix things that were not broken, while ignoring things that needed fixing.

“If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”

As Christians, we may wonder at this time of year,
“If Christmas ain’t broke, then why does the world keep trying to fix it?”

The answer is that the world views Christmas very differently.

It sees Christmas as an occasion for lavish gift giving, disregarding God’s greatest gift— his Son, the world’s Savior. “Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord” (Luke 2:11).

The world sees Christmas as family time, losing sight of God’s promise, “So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith” (Galatians 3:26).

The world sees Christmas as a party time, ignoring the true reason for celebration, “Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion! Shout, Daughter Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you” (Zechariah 9:9).
baby_14775cIn short, the world has lost Christmas’ true meaning: the celebration of God becoming man to perfectly fulfill the law and pay for mankind’s sins.

From the Christian perspective, Christmas works just fine!

God bless your Christmas celebration. May he also give you a joyous New Year.

Principal’s Pen: What are you giving thanks for?

Thanks be to God!The fourth Thursday in November is America’s national day of Thanksgiving. To many, it is the kickoff to Christmas shopping. To others, it is family and feasting. Many look forward to parades and football.

Although America’s Thanksgiving does not have distinctly religious roots, Christians can only see the possibilities.

The lesson of the Ten Lepers is often read on Thanksgiving. In it, we find earthly and heavenly meanings. It provides reasons to thank God.

First, like the lepers were without hope, we can only admit our lost state due to sin. Theirs was an incurable physical disease. We face eternal death. We are born with sin, we live in it, and – without God’s intervention – we will forever die in it. Just as the lepers thanked Jesus for physical healing, you and I can thank God for spiritual healing through his Son.

Secondly, Jesus’ healing brought the lepers physical blessings: extension of their lives and the right to return home. Every day, God blesses us physically with “clothing, shoes, food, drink, house, [and] home.” The depth of our blessings is far beyond what we need and can use. We can thank God for these physical blessings.

Most importantly, our greatest blessing is identified through the returning leper’s words and actions. He knew and believed that the one who physically healed him was the One who also brought him spiritual healing. The evangelist notes that this leper—a Samaritan—“came back, praising God…[and] threw himself at Jesus’ feet” (Luke 17:16). Why? That is found in Jesus’ words, “Your faith has made you well” (v. 17). This man’s physical healing was an act of Jesus’ mercy. His spiritual healing—and ours—is God’s gift through faith in Jesus.

Being thankful is always appropriate. The Bible commands, “Give thanks in all circumstances” (1 Thessalonians 5:18).

As Christians, let us always thank God for our salvation through Jesus.
God bless your Thanksgiving!
