Top LLHS News of 2018

As Lakeside Lutheran High School looks forward to the blessings a new year brings, there’s value—not to mention, enjoyment—in reviewing the year past. The LLHS good news team took a look at the 49 Warrior stories from our blog and 609 other social media posts released in calendar year 2018 and narrowed them to 10 newsbits that garnered the most attention, celebrated accomplishments, introduced a new aspect, or were a major change for your Lakeside Lutheran High School and its community. Enjoy the year in review!

April: 1st Youth Apprentice program participant

NehlsJeremy Nehls, class of 2018, was Lakeside’s first participant in the Wisconsin Youth Apprenticeship (YA) program. YA is designed for high school students who want hands-on learning at a worksite along with classroom instruction. Nehls worked at the Robert Schwandt Jr. and S.E. Schwandt Sr. Farms near Juneau. YA is part of a statewide School-to-Work initiative done under the supervision of the state’s Department of Workforce Development and serves a wide variety of career programs.

May: 1,000+ Warrior mark at Lighthouse

Lighthouse1000We broke the 1,000th-Warrior mark for visitors to the Lighthouse Youth Center of Milwaukee. This is the 12th year of a partnership that provides sophomore Warriors in Pastor Clark Schultz’s Word of God classes the opportunity to make new friends and enjoy new experiences. Pastor Jim Buske, LL class of ’93 and director at Lighthouse, visits his alma mater each year to present Warrior teens this opportunity to live their faith. On May 1, 2018, Lighthouse reported that Jacob Horta, class of 2020, was the 1,000th Lakeside Lutheran Warrior to step through the doors of under this program.

June: Two state champions in four days

With a score of 147 (+3), junior Lukas Heckmann captured the WIAA D2 golf championship on June 5. The previous day, Heckmann opened the state tournament at Madison’s University Ridge course with a 4-under-par 68 that was the best score of the day, regardless of division. He was named Capitol Conference Golfer of the Year, All-State Second-Team, Madison All-Area Player of the Year. Three days previous, sophomore Collin Schulz took the D2 boys high jump title with a jump of 6’6 at the WIAA State Track and Field Championships on Saturday, June 2, at University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. Collin also smashed the school record in 2018 with a jump of 6’9 earlier in the season.

June: A Cappella sings National Anthem

A CapOn June 11, more than 500 Warrior family and friends packed the stands for the second year in a row to hear our A Cappella choir members sing the National Anthem to kick off a Brewers game, this year vs. the Chicago Cubs. Though the Brew Crew lost the battle that night, they proceeded to capture the NL Central title with a 96-67 season win-loss record (winning the tiebreaker game over the Cubs [95-68] in October).

 

June: Drama wins prize for favorite photo

Nifty FiftiesOur “Nifty Fifties” script provider, Pioneer Drama Service, ran a contest for best photo submitted on its Facebook page in spring, as voted by its Facebook page visitors. Student photographer Taylor Wolfram, class of ‘19, snapped a great action pic of a dancing Donald (Isaiah Coleman, class of 2018). Our photo took 1st place (with 450 votes) and the LLHS drama department received a $200 gift certificate good for play materials, royalties, or books!

August: Several new faculty faces

IMG_2317 InstallmentFour new full-time faculty members were installed at the start of the 2018-19 school year, the largest number at once since the 2000-01 school year. Mr. Justin Vanderhoof (second from left) teaches English and Geography and coaches football and track. Mrs. Hannah Uher teaches Science and coaches soccer and cross country. Mr. Nate Sievert teaches in the Math and Phy Ed departments and coaches basketball and track. Pictured at right, Pastor Michael Helwig teaches Word of God classes and directs Operation Go mission trips. We also welcomed back Word of God adjunct instructor Pastor Christopher Koschnitzke (leftmost in photo) for another year.

 

August: Inaugural STEM Academy year

STEM-polos-logo-cross-colorThe 2018-19 school year marked the inaugural year of our STEM Academy, a special program for students interested in taking engineering or biomedical sciences in their post-secondary education. STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, and the Academy is designed to add classes yearly as this first-year cohort ages through the school. The program is using Project Lead the Way (PLTW) curricula administered through Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE). The first class includes 19 students enrolled in “Introduction to Engineering Design” (IED), facilitated by Academy Director Andrew Willems. Next fall, the second course in the series, “Principles of Engineering,” will be available. Successful performance in the high school courses earns students college credit at participating PLTW universities.

 

November: Fourth round playoff football

footballOur Capitol North Conference champs had the longest run in football program history through the WIAA playoffs this season, reaching the fourth round of the playoffs. They defeated Beloit Turner, River Valley, and Edgerton in consecutive Friday night playoffs before losing to eventual state champion Racine St. Catherine’s in the state semifinal on November 9.

Bsuer footballSome sweet icing was added when Head Coach Paul also received accolades from the Wisconsin State Journal:

“Lakeside Lutheran entered with an experienced core and delivered on that promise, led by coach Paul Bauer,” the release read. “For his efforts, Bauer was named the Wisconsin State Journal/WisconsinPrepZone.com All-Area football coach of the year.”

 

 

November: Math team participation sets record

After a remarkable October showing when both our Varsity and JV math teams took first place at the highly-competitive Madison LaFollette meet, November saw a record number of students—117!— participate in the Fall Capitol Conference Math Meet.

math(That’s more than a quarter of our students.) The results are in and, according to math team advisor Todd Hackbarth, “God once again blessed Lakeside with incredible success!” Varsity Team #1 took first overall. Juniors Gil Haw took 1st and Trevor Geerdts placed 5th individually. JV Team #1 took first & JV Team #2 took third in Capitol North. Individually, sophomores Lydia Buxa placed 3rd and Ashley Grundman & Ella Butzine tied for 4th.

December: Greenhouse updates complete

Thanks to a team effort from the Agricultural Survey class, FFA, and the construction class, the courtyard greenhouse, mostly unused for almost 10 years,  was recently renewed and revamped. The construction class built benches from recycled benches donated by St. Coletta, Jefferson, and a fan was added too. Jefferson County AgriBusiness Club also helped pay for benches, and over $2,000 of supplies and equipment were covered by donations from the Lake Mills Rotary Club and last spring’s Grand Event bidders. An HVAC contractor helped with a furnace over Christmas break and the greenhouse is winter-ready! This will help future students learn and work with the greenhouse as part of the Ag Survey course.

Senior earns Commended Student status in the 2019 National Merit® Awards

BuxaAbigail Buxa, Oconomowoc, has been named a Commended Student in the 2019 National Merit Scholarship Program. Buxa is one of 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation who are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise. Though they will not continue in the 2019 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, Commended Students placed among the top 50,000 scorers of more than 1.6 million students who entered the 2019 competition by taking the 2017 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®).

ACT exam results among highest in state 

ACT Research Services of Iowa City, Iowa, recently released the ACT scores for Lakeside Lutheran High School Class of 2018.

Of the 85 members of the 2018 class, 73, or 86%, wrote the exam. Based on a 36-point scale, the composite score of these students was 24.2, which is above the state composite of 20.5 for almost 100% of students writing the exam statewide. This composite score keeps Lakeside Lutheran among the top 2% of over 460 high schools in the state, as reported by the Wisconsin Department of Instruction. Once again, mathematics scores led the four tested areas.

ACT_LLHS_for_2017-2018

According to ACT Inc., the test is not an aptitude or IQ test, but directly related to what students have learned in high school courses. They use the results to predict college readiness in four areas: English Composition, Algebra, Social Science, and Biology. “It is the rigor of coursework—rather than simply the number of core courses—that has the greatest impact on ACT performance and college readiness,” the non-profit organization states.

“In addition to having higher average ACT scores than many local schools, the College Board stated that our composite percentage of students who are ‘college ready’ in four core subjects is more than double the state’s composite,” says Principal James Grasby. “This means that a majority of Lakeside graduates are very likely to earn a “B” or above in English Composition, Algebra, the Social Sciences, and Biology in college-level courses. This is a great testimony to God’s blessing on our students’ work.”

ACT_LLHS_2018_5year_trend

The ACT is a national college admission and placement examination that is used by more colleges than any other examination. Begun in 1959, more than 1.8 million students wrote the ACT last school year, including almost 67,000 students in Wisconsin. The ACT is a standard assessment for all 11th-graders in Wisconsin public high schools.

Lakeside Lutheran High School in Lake Mills is a ministry operated by a federation of 31 Lutheran congregations who are affiliated with the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod or the Evangelical Lutheran Synod. The school holds accreditation from the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI), a division of AdvancED. For more information, contact Principal James Grasby at (920) 648-2321.

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.
