Summer computer class

Click to read full article

Each summer, Lincoln Lutheran offers an intensive two-week Computer Applications course, and each year the course is nearly full. The course is a non-graded, competency based class, where students can advance at their own pace. The class meets from 8:00 am until noon, but because the course is self paced and mostly centered around online activities, some students can work longer either at school or at home if they want extra practice or just want to get ahead of the game.

Why would students want to spend two more weeks at school, even if it's just for a half day? For some students it's the self paced nature of the course, for others, taking the course in the summer frees up time in their 4-year high school plan to take more advanced computer courses or other electives they could not fit in otherwise.

Holly Atterbury, a Junior at Lincoln Lutheran said she was taking the class, "So I can get the computer credit out of the way so that I can do other things; like arts and crafts classes." Holly also recommends anyone thinking of taking the class have good typing skills and know their way around a computer.

Monday, June 13th is the final day of the class, but several students have been putting in extra hours so they can add an extra weekend back into their summer vacation. If you are interested in enrolling your child in next summer's course, look for details in the second half of next school year.


State Track Meet Qualifiers

Click to read full article

Since 1994 the Lincoln Lutheran Track Team has sent athletes to State each year! Quite a feat!  Sohomore Kory Kohlhof helped keep that streak alive as he and the girls 4 x 400 m relay qualified for the State Track Meet. Kory qualified in the 200 m dash after an outstanding performance at Districts last week.  

The girls 4 x 400 m relay also qualified, earning a wildcard berth to State.  Just to prove how competitive District B-3 was, 3 of the 4 wildcards came from our District! The girls on the relay are:  Tarynn Rozanek, Claire Dull, Ashley Brozek, and Kassidy Nuttleman.  Senior Adrienne Langewisch ran a great race for Kassidy after her injury at Districts, and will be an alternate again if needed.  Also, freshman Mickaela Oneth will practice with the group and serve as an alternate if necessary. 

Kory runs his prelim race on Friday evening, and hopefully advances to finals on Saturday.  The girls run their relay Saturday afternoon. The State Track Meet is held at Omaha Burke High School - located just sout of Dodge on 120th Street. Hope some of you can make it there to see their performances!

Other District medalists were:  Alex Melius in the shot put with a mark of 51'4", setting another school record, taking 5th place in our District, but just missing automatic qualifiying by 2"! The boys team also had Paul Rasmussen take 6th place in the long jump. At the Conference Meet, Paul broke the school record with a jump of 21'3/4". The boys 4 x 100 m relay team also took 5th place medals at Districts. On the girls side the other District medalists were: Claire Dull took 6th place in the 100 m dash, Kassidy Nuttleman 6th in the 300 m hurdles. The girls 4 x 800 m relay team also brought home 5th place medals and came very close to earning a wildcard bid as well. Relay members were Paige Orth, Karstin Ptascek, Ashley Brozek and Lexi Volk.

Overall, congrats to the track team as a whole for their season, as the girls had 1 Championship trophy and 3 Runner-ups. Also the boys won the NWU Indoor meet to start out their season. The Warriors had 29 personal best perfomances in District competition! Great job tracksters!

State Science Fair Results

Five middle school students represented Lincoln Lutheran at the State Science Fair Friday at Nebraska Wesleyan. Josh Wendland, Rachel Wheeler, Sarah Gahan, Ben Stirtz, and Caleb Ziems were selected to represent the Southeast Region at the Regional Fair in March. They presented their indpendent research to numerous judges. The competition inluded the top twenty-five projects of the state.

From these 25 projects, ten projects are selected as exemplary. Rachel Wheeler's project "The Nose Knows" and Caleb Ziems's project "Effect of Boiling on the Iron Content of Spinach" were selected as exemplary projects. Student projects were recognized by the Nebraska Junior Academy of Science. Certificate and medallions were distributed by Miss Nebraska Nicky Haverland.

Rachel's research concluded that the olfactory system plays an imporant role in identifying flavor. She tested subjects with and without a nose-plug to determine if they could identify Skittle flavors correctly. Caleb tested how preparations methods of spinach effected its iron content. He found that boiling spinach did reduce the iron amount. He found that there was a greater change in iron content between 1-5 minutes of boiling compared to 5-10 minutes of boiling.

Congratulations to all students who partipated. A special note of congratulations to Caleb and Rachel being selected as 2 of 10 exemplary project in the state!  Thank you to all those who have been involved in the science fair process and have encouraged students through the process.

Mr. Bassett Awarded Fellowship

"Fund for Teachers" has awarded Mr. Nathan Bassett, Social Studies and Religion teacher at L.L., $5000 to cover travel and other expenses this summer for a trip to Washington D.C., Philadelphia, and Boston to study colonial and revolutionary era history. 

A primary goal in this trip is to obtain ideas for creating a "living history exhibit" with students in his U.S. History class.  This living history exhibit is focused on students recreating life in colonial and/or revolutionary America through re-enactment.  Mr. Bassett is looking forward to making contacts with various education experts in these three cities. 

Mr. Bassett's trip will take place in June of 2011.  He will spend most of his time in Virginia, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and New York, but will travel through 15 states in total. 

Congratulations Mr. Bassett!  Have a great trip!

Why should your student attend Lincoln Lutheran?
The Lincoln Lutheran mission statement, “Lincoln Lutheran exists to equip young people to be faithful disciples of Jesus Christ by providing an excellent, Christ-centered education” addresses this question.
• Lincoln Lutheran equips young people to be faithful disciples of Jesus Christ not only through daily religion classes and twice-weekly chapel services, but through teachers who integrate their faith into classroom teaching and their daily interactions with students. In addition to the examples seen at school every day, required community service helps students learn how to serve Christ in their everyday lives.
• Lincoln Lutheran provides a comprehensive, Christ-centered, college preparatory education that enables students to be successful in life. Smaller class sizes allow teachers to know students on a more personal level and more accurately meet each student’s educational needs. We currently offer ten dual-credit courses for junior and senior students, allowing them to earn up to 32 hours of college credit through Concordia University-Nebraska while taking classes at Lincoln Lutheran. Our graduates are prepared for success in college, as indicated by our student’s ACT scores, which are the highest in the Lincoln area.
• Lincoln Lutheran offers a wide range of extracurricular activities for students, including opportunities in athletics, music, speech and drama, cheer and dance, and different clubs and organizations. Students are encouraged, and have the opportunity to, be involved in several different activities during the school year.

Did You Know…
The deadline for Early Registration is Tuesday, March 15th. The Registration Fee increases after that date. We rely on Early Registration to give us an estimate for class sizes, which assists us in planning for the next school year.
