"To All to Whom These Presents Shall Come"

One of our office assistants and I had a nice chuckle the other day as we decided where to hang a new accreditation certificate.  We noticed a particular frame and certificate that was different than the others, one that nobody seems to ever notice.  It started out with the words:...

"Top Choice"

How about some very recent history?  In 2015 our school began making use of the Wisconsin Parental Choice Program, which means that we became a school that parents could choose who received a voucher from the state.  A certain percent of families in the Manitowoc area would qualify for a...

"Overflowing with Thankfulness"

Interview#7: Pastor Tom Klusmeyer The reason for the title of this weekly blog is to recall the past and its blessings while looking forward with confidence and joy.  Well, those two perspectives are the reason why, in the 2006-07 school year, as MLHS observed its fiftieth anniversary year,...
