Gryphons Come together in Celebration
In a school-wide assembly on Tuesday, February 28th, students and faculty continued our recognition of Black History Month. We also held our first induction ceremony of the newly registered Lutheran High Chapter of the National Art Honor Society (NAHS). Our celebration began with a performance by the Lutheran High Choir directed by Mr. Scriber, followed by a special poetry reading of the poems " I, Too" by Langston Hughes and "New Day's Lyric" by Amanda Gorman. Five students meeting the core requirements of service, character, leadership, and scholarship in the visual arts were then inducted into the NAHS by LHS Chapter Advisor, Mrs. Lagarde. Principal Hernandez presented new members with their certificates and a NAHS gift. Many thanks to all of our school families for joining us to support our students. Thank you as well to the faculty and students who participated today and shared their creative gifts. Special thanks to Ms. Loughmiller for opening and closing our program with prayer.
2023 National Lutheran Schools Week (NLSW) - Making Disciples for Life (Matthew 28:18-20). What a great theme for LHS where we teach our students to Love, Honor and Serve! Our celebration of Lutheran education included a chapel skit performed by the Service Club, NLSW crosses colored and shared with the members of First English Lutheran Church, daily fun with disciple trivia and "Where's a disciple?" We concluded our celebration just before Mardi Gras with a special lunch of tacos/nachos and an afternoon of "team building games" that included some friendly competition between classes! Many thanks to Ms. Loughmiller and the Service Club for coordinating the festivities!
Lutheran High celebrated Valentines Day with Love and Kindness! Student Council sponsored a kindness tree filled with messages of love and encouragement written by all of our students, and a bake sale benefiting 2nd Harvest Food Bank. Thank you to all of our students and faculty who brought sweet treats and everyone who participated in the bake sale!
Gryphons rose early and Shined at the District Literary Rally! On February 4th, accompanied by Ms. Loughmiller and Mrs. Lagarde, thirty-five Lutheran High School students gave up their Saturday morning to participate in the District Literary Rally hosted by Southeastern University. Students competed in academic testing, exhibited original art, and enjoyed “Rockin Roar,” an event designed to showcase the many programs and clubs Southeastern University offers prospective students. Today the results are official, and we can proudly announce that eighteen of our students qualified for the State Rally that will be hosted at LSU on March 4th. In addition, one of our art students earned a first-place distinction in her category! Fabulous job, Gryphons! We are so proud of you!
Mrs. Lagarde's photography club made a splash experimenting with water photography. Students adjusted shutter speed and captured objects of different sizes and weights hitting water in various depths. Objects included apples, olives, a tomato, rocks, king cake babies, and Mardi Gras beads.
