The Student Council of Wisconsin Lutheran is partnering with Bloodcenter of Wisconsin to host a blood drive on Wednesday, January 25. Consider that patients in local hospitals use about 800 units of blood every day, and that these patients rely heavily on the participation and leadership of sponsors in our community. About half of that amount is collected at Bloodcenter's 12 donor centers, but the other half must be collected through local drives like ours. To find out more about becoming a blood donor, click here. If you would like to donate at WLHS on January 25, please contact Mr. Roger Festerling at firstname.lastname@example.org or 414-453-45667 ext 2222 to make an appointment.
Thanks to the generous support and sponsorship of many donors, over 20 scholarships are available to our incoming and current Wisconsin Lutheran High School students. Click here to see the scholarships available.

Getting on Honor Roll (3.4 GPA or higher) is not easy. Even for American students it takes a lot of dedication. Imagine trying to get on honor roll at a high school in Beijing . . . with teachers teaching you in Chinese. Just the thought is scary isn't it? Most of the students in Our Funky Family are doing just that here at Wisco!
Well I'm proud to announce that 29 of our 35 scholars in the Student Homes are on Honor Roll for second quarter. That's 83%! Getting grades this good is rare, but doing it in your second language is truly honorable.
On Friday, January 13, Wisconsin Lutheran will hold its annual worship service to thank God for the civil rights movement. The theme of the service is Precious Lord, Take My Hand. Pastor Aaron Robinson of Fairview Lutheran Church will be giving the address.

High school is an exciting time for many of our students receiving their driving licenses for the first time, but it can also be a dangerous time. Thousands of 15-to- 20-year-old drivers are involved in fatal car crashes each year. In fact, young drivers are involved in fatal crashes at a rate that is double that of all other drivers.
