Music is an integral part of the Lutheran High experience and we are blessed to provide our students with many ways for them to get involved and to explore their musical talents.
Opportunities are available for all students in the following areas:
* Concert Band (for credit)
* Stage One Show Choir
* Alethia Praise Band
* Concert Choir (for credit)
* Pep Band
* Solo and Ensemble Regional Contests
Our students also perform at various churches, schools and community sites throughout the school year to honor God with their musical talents.
Concerts are held at Christmas and again in the spring to culminate each semester's accomplishments.

Drama is just one of the wonderful extras that NEWLHS has to offer.
In addition to the Drama/Speech class that we offer for credit, we also typically run 2 major productions per school year: our Winter Drama in February each year and our Spring Production at the end of April each year.
The Winter Drama is most often a comedic compilation of shorter plays. We choose shorter plays so that students participating in Winter Sports and Math Team can also participate in Drama. Each Winter Drama one-act practices once a week for 30-45 minutes depending on the play length.
The Spring Drama is typically a full-length comedic or dramatic production. The daily commitment for this show is bigger, but practices are still organized around/after that of Spring Sports so that students can choose to participate in both.
Musicals have taken place either in the Fall or as a replacement for the Spring Show. Musical productions are dependent on our School Musical Director and the ability/interest level of the current student body.
Opportunities in Drama go beyond being in the spotlight as students helping behind the scenes are also needed. We have opportunities for students to help in the creation of the set by being on set crew, the backstage performance needs are provided by our stage crew, the light and sound expertise is provided by our tech crew, and the makeup needs of the actors/actresses are provided by the makeup crew.
Typically our drama productions include 30-40% of our student body (counting both the on-stage and behind the scenes groups). Drama is an incredibly fun and valuable extracurricular activity that enriches our school community and allows students to become more well-rounded individuals.

Our Art classes work hard to produce projects every semester that develop and demonstrate our God-given creative and technical skills and abilities. The Art Courses currently provided by the school include:
Art 1 & 2
Advanced Art 1, 2, 3, & 4
Opportunities to be involved in Art Club arise in the Fall each school year as we create wood burned items for sale at the School Auction. Art Clubs have also been formed for other school needs including the large mural in the new addition of the school.
An Art Show of student work happens every spring in the commons; where each art student chooses their favorite piece created in that school year to put on display. In the meantime, miniatures of student work are featured in a mini-Art Museum that is set outside of the Art classroom door.
For further information regarding the art program or to donate to Art program needs please contact Mrs. Dunahoo at 920.469.6810 or via email at email@example.com
Each year students are given the opportunity to join the Forensics team here at NEWLHS. Students get to choose their category for competition and may compete individually or as part of a small group. Each season includes 3 levels of competition: Sub-District, District, and State. Throughout the season, students are given the opportunity to refine their communication skills, increase creativity, and share their perspectives.
NEWLHS is a member of the WISDAA (Wisconsin Interscholastic Speech & Dramatic Arts Association). This organization values the opportunities that are provided for those who participate in their contests and strives to give all students equal opportunities to be successful.
