Stay up-to-date with your ...

A week ago at this time I was on my way to China, to attend that anniversary celebration of a high school where my family and I have visited often.  It was great to be there and to even speak a little bit during one of the sessions.  What was even greater was to meet up with some friends who belong to a group we would call our "fellowship." 

I'm so glad that we could squeeze in some time for worship together in one of their homes.  It reminded me of how things probably were during the days of the early church, when Christians met in homes instead of in public.  I talked about Martin Luther and the Reformation, but especially about the central truth that "the just shall live by faith."  Those words, that teaching, are what "opened the gates of paradise" to Luther, as they do for all of us.
We don't just "squeeze" that in at our school.  We make it a high priority each and every day.  We gather around it during chapel.  We use it in our prayers and in our teaching.  We implement it somehow in our relationships and in our discipline, in our motivation.  How blessed we are that we can do all this and do it publicly besides!
I ask you to pray for all those "in our fellowship" around the world and especially for those who don't have what we have.  They don't have leaders to guide them.  They don't have fine buildings for worship or for school.  They don't have lots of others to give them support like we do here.  But they do have the gospel!  And therefore, they have "paradise." 
That's where you'll get to meet them some day!
"For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom his whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name.  I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith."  Ephesians 3:14-17

The Federation extended a call to Dan Unke to serve as Assistant Principal/AD at MLHS. He currently serves as AD at Divine Savior in Florida. Dan is 35, married, 4 young children.  He is the grandson of former Pastor Unke of Immanuel.  (Son of Jim, for those that know that family). 

Mrs. Alana Enger received the call to teach in the math department, replacing Mr. Schwartz who has been helping us with the vacancy this year.  Her duties include teaching Geometry and Algebra 2.  Mrs. Enger currently teaches at St. Paul Lutheran School in Lake Mills, WI.  Our prayers are for her deliberation process and for a peaceful conviction in the end.

Athletic Contest Travel Releases
MLHS requires that student athletes ride the bus to and from all athletic events and departure from this requirement will release MLHS from all liability for any adverse results that may occur.

If excusing athlete from taking the bus

TO the athletic event...

If you are going to give permission for your student not to take the bus to the athletic event, they must present this Athletic Contest Release  (located on the MLHS website on the Athletics page under “Forms & Information”) to the head coach BEFORE the team leaves for the contest.  

FROM the atheletic event...
If your student athlete is not going to take the bus home, a parent needs to ask the coach for the Travel Release Sheet in the 3-ring binder. On that sheet you will simply write the name of your student and sign your name reflecting that you take full responsibility for their safe return home.
