There are many opportunities for students to be involved in after school activities. It is important to us to be able to see interests and passions be developed in our young people.
Here are some clubs and activities that our students can join:
National Honor Society
Our advisor, Mrs. Susan Wendt, organizes this group to provide leadership for the student body and to perform acts of service in the community. Member students must maintain a certain GPA and must be students of high character to maintain eligibility in this group.
This organization provides leadership for the student body as well. Officers are elected by their peers and they meet on a weekly basis to plan dances, servant events, spirit weeks and blood drives. Our Student Council advisor is Miss Sarah Hansen.
The yearbook committee meets periodically throughout the year to design the look and layout of the yearbook. They also take thousands of pictures, organize themes and communicate with the student body and their advisor, Mrs. Allison Gibbons, to keep up with work that's required. Yearbook is offered as a class for credit during the spring semester.
This activity is very appealing to our students who gravitate to the STEM subjects (Science Technology Engineering and Math). Our school-sponsored team practices on a weekly basis on campus. The robot must be built up and programmed to perform specific functions during competitions. Our team competes against other high schools from around the region several times throughout the year. Mrs. Susan Wendt, along with two additional coaches, advise the team throughout the year.
Mrs. Allison Gibbons, our advisor, works to prepare our students in the art of public speaking. Forensics meets are scheduled throughout the months with many of our students advancing to the state competition in Madison during the month of March.
Math department chair, Mrs. Holly Blocker, leads our teams in competition against the fellow schools in the Packerland Conference. Several math meets are scheduled January through March for our 'Mathletes' to participate in. With three and sometimes four teams competing, Mrs. Blocker has a strong program that does very well against larger schools.
Outdoor sports and activities are very popular in our area of the country. We are able to provide an ice fishing club to compete against other schools across the state at weekend tournaments. Mrs. Ted Vander Meuse, is our coach for this new club at Lutheran High.
In addition to these ongoing activities, additional groups are formed based on student interest. Some of these activities are: art club, math and science bowl & newspaper.
