Your Critical Advantage
Your Future Advantage
...focus on parenting mission Lakeside Lutheran High School is committed to assisting parents and area WELS/ELS congregations in nurturing the faith of our students through a Christ-centered education that emphasizes the grace of God in Christ and lives of Christian service in the home, the church and society. Lakeside’s mission is dedicated to the glory of God on whom alone we are dependent for all blessings and is carried out in response to his love for us.
Remember the name? Mr. Steve Lauber Hundreds of grade school students have been finding our Director of Recruitment, Mr. Lauber, at Lakeside events, at their schools and even in the community.When they remember his name and he can’t remember theirs, he adds their names to a fishbowl in his office. In April, two out of all those names will be drawn and they’ll win iPod Touches!
Terrible twos or teenage blues?
a message from Mr. Lauber
Some people believe raising a baby is the most difficult time for parents. The lack of sleep and constant attention that a baby needs has to be the most trying time. Babies are totally dependent on parents. It’s physically and emotionally demanding time.
Others think it’s the “terrible twos.” Preschoolers are into everything— moving around by themselves means dangers are everywhere. From running into the street, falling off a swing or tripping down the stairs, parents need to always be on guard to protect their children. Ages 6-12 tend to be some of the calmest years for a child and possibly the most manageable for parents. It’s at these ages that children are somewhat independent, yet they still tend to listen to most things that parents or teachers tell them. Often they are respectful and helpful. Most 6-12 year olds tend to enjoy being around their parents, feeling safe and at ease when they’re around.

Many parents who have experienced the teenage years believe that this age may actually be the toughest of all to parent. Teenagers become less reliant on their parents, while friends and influences of school and society become more and more evident in their lives. This, then, is not a time for parents to come off the relative lull of the elementary years, loosen their hold and let teens go and decide for themselves what to do and where to be. It’s during these years that parents need to be around making a positive influence more than ever. Allowing teens to spread their wings while keeping a very gentle hand in whom they will become as they leave high school is one of the greatest gifts parents can give their children. Your work as a parent of a teenager is critical; it may well be the most important parenting time. Leading in the right direction and making sure God’s Word is there each day is your main job. That is also one of the goals here at Lakeside Lutheran High School.

Maybe your school has some of these too—classes that teach you important stuff, but also usually let you move around more and do things.

veryone seems to know high school students can make great memories and have a lot of fun when they join in extras like music and sports. The Lakeside Lutheran Warriors have 16 sports teams to try out for and over a dozen ways to be musically involved, including the Warrior Marching Band during the summer months. These are definitely dreams chased by many students.
Your Lakeside Lutheran offers dozens of choices for “elective” courses—those classes that aren’t required for graduation, but are ones that teach specialized, often critical skills for your life after high school.
