  • American Mentor and New International Student October Activity

    Each year, new international students receive one special American Student Mentor for their entire first year at WLHS. American Student Mentors go through a selective application and training process which allows them to uniquely understand the challenges faced by New International Students and implement specific ways to support and help their New International Student Mentees. Monthly activities include relationship building games and talking sessions that allow students from different language and cultural backgrounds to appreciate each other.

    For the October Mentor-Mentee activity, teams competed for the best decorated pumpkin in these categories: scariest, best animal, multi-cultural and most artistic. Students also competed in a world cultures trivia game. 
     
    Mentors make a big difference in the first year of new international students' life at WLHS.

  • Reformation of the Christian Church Celebration

    On Wednesday, October 27, our chapel service will observe the Reformation of the Christian Church. God used the work of Martin Luther and others to re-discover the central truths of the Holy Scriptures: that our salvation is an act of God’s grace alone, delivered to us by faith alone, and revealed to us through Scripture alone. Though we recognize Martin Luther’s significant role in the Reformation, this festival gives glory to God for restoring Jesus Christ and the Holy Scriptures to the foundational position of the Christian Church and asks our Lord to keep us faithful to his word. Our Campus Pastor, Phil Huebner, will lead the service.

The most frequent violations are:
    • rips in jeans that are ABOVE the knee (even the tiniest amount of skin exposure is not allowed above the knee)
    • leggings should be covered to extended fingertip length in the front and the back
    • shirts need to cover up the entire midsection (even when they raise their hand)
    For more details, please see page 20 of the student handbook found here.

  • 2021-22 WLHS School Theme Announced

    Our school theme for the 2021-22 school year is "More than Conquerors" from Romans 8:37.

    Creator of the Mona Lisa and The Last Supper, Leonardo da Vinci is considered one of the greatest artists of all time. To ask whether he could draw a stick man seems a silly question. Of course he could. The question, though, illustrates a logical claim sometimes known as “the argument from the greater to the lesser.”

    Interestingly, this line of reasoning appears frequently in the Scriptures. Consider Romans 8:31, “If God be for us, who can be against us?” If the God who created the universe, human life in his own image, and proved his unconditional love for us by sending his Son to die for our sins, who or what could overpower him? No one or no thing.

    Still, we doubt at times. Despite what we know about the Triune God, we allow cares and challenges to look bigger than they are. But, in our relationship with the heavenly Father through Jesus Christ we are “. . . more than conquerors” (Romans 8:37), our theme for the 2021-22 school year. Romans 8:28-38 assures us that Christ’s conquests are ours and nothing can separate us from his love.

    Under the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) rule, all primary and secondary schools are required to develop and implement a plan for managing all building materials which contain asbestos. Included in the AHERA Act is the requirement to annually notify all workers and building occupants (or their guardians) of asbestos-related activities. Beginning in 1988, all buildings owned, leased, or under the control of Wisconsin Lutheran (WLHS) were inspected by EPA accredited inspectors, with building material samples analyzed by an independent laboratory.

  • Virtual Reality

    As with many things this year, the Business Ed. Department had a need to reimagine hosting the annual financial literacy event known as "Reality Store." Fortunately, River Credit Union had the answer with their Digital Test Drive program. This program filled the same purpose as our Reality Store event has for many years: to prepare our seniors for the financial budgeting and decisions that adults make on a monthly basis. Seniors met with Mr. Jason Goede, Business Ed. Department Chair, via Google Meet to begin their simulation, and then completed it at home using their Chromebooks. While we plan for a return to our face-to-face event in 2022, we are thankful for the opportunity to provide these lessons in using God-given talents and resources wisely to our young people.

  • Student Post

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    Today, on a day dedicated to reflecting on and celebrating the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., it is especially important that we acknowledge that Wisconsin Lutheran High School opposes racism and seeks to promote racial healing.  

    While we cannot control what each of our students posts to their social media channels, we can control what we model and teach them.  As a Christian school, one of our five core values is "multi-ethnic" -- celebrating the mutual benefit of cross-cultural, integrated relationships in the unity of the Body of Christ. 

    At Wisconsin Lutheran, students learn how to respond to racism in a constructive way through our Civil Rights Tour, and additionally are encouraged to discuss issues in our "Courageous Conversations about Race" groups.  Our faculty has regular professional development in confronting racism. This past summer, the high school developed a four-part video series on racial awareness ending in a one-day workshop addressing our current racial climate.  On Wednesday, we hold our annual "Thanksgiving for Civil Rights Service" for our student body to celebrate our commitment to live out MLK's legacy.

    We became aware earlier today of an incident involving WLHS students who posted inappropriate, unacceptable and racially offensive content on their own personal social media channels, and we began immediately to investigate the situation. While that process is ongoing, the students involved have been suspended indefinitely pending further action.
