Your Found Advantage

...focus on your world's champion seeker Ask and it will be given you, seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened to you. Matthew 7:7

Hide-and-Go-Seek is a game that almost all of us have played at some time in our lives. Finding a great place to hide can be difficult, but kids sure love to try as they sprint to secure the perfect spot to stay hidden for as long as they can. Then the real work begins. The person that is “it” begins to go out and seek. The hiders may be under a blanket, behind the curtains, in a closet, next to the couch or packed away underneath a pile of clothes. Sometimes everyone is found, but at times, the seeker may just say “I give up.” Thankfully, our God doesn’t play hide-and-go-seek with us. Jesus tells us in Matthew 7:7, “Ask and it will be given you, seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened to you.” He lets us know that he is here whenever we need him. In the Bible, God gives us all the information we need for this life, and he supplies us with Christian parents, teachers and friends to guide us. Lakeside Lutheran High School is centered on educating teenage students about God and His great love for us, encouraging them to continue to stay close to their Savior, and equipping them with the tools for this life and beyond. With Jesus as our Shepherd, we can be confident that we are found.

Your Federation Advantage ...focus on Zion, Columbus

PARTNERS IN CHRISTIAN EDUCATION This fall, Zion school families raised money for a child in the MakeA-Wish foundation. To help celebrate this generosity, members of the LLHS pep band performed at Zion’s pep rally. After the Warrior teens performed, they stayed and mingled with the younger students. “This had such a positive impact on our students. They loved having high schoolers socializing and playing games with them,” says Zion Principal Alex Vandenberg. Check out the YouTube video! http://bit.ly/zionpep This wasn’t a one-time connection, however. Vandenberg goes on to list other ways this partnership is demonstrated, “We encourage our students to consider LLHS whenever we talk about their choices for high school. We love to have Mr. Lauber come and present all of the great reasons for our students to attend LLHS. We have had the choir come and sing in our church services. Many of our students participate in sport camps at LLHS. Our students not only improve their talents but also meet students from other WELS schools.”

PARENTS CHOOSE LAKESIDE • For us, Lakeside is peace of mind that we’re doing all we can to encourage our girls’ spiritual development during years they may be naturally questioning everything they’ve ever been taught. They need to be in God’s Word at every turn, especially during the tumultuous teen years, and the Christian education at Lakeside ensures that their faith doesn’t become relegated to “I’ll get to that when I have more time.” Or, “I already learned all that. I don’t need it til I’m older anyway.” We also want them in a Christian school as long as possible so that the adults they spend most of their time with have the same values we are trying to instill, and are role models they can look up to. The difference Lakeside has made for us is that it is a joy to continue to watch our daughter’s faith grow every day. —Dan & Becky R • Lakeside promotes a positive environment where our children can grow and flourish to be their best. Having chapel with their brothers and sisters in Christ keeps their faith strong at such a critical and challenging time in their life. —Matt & Sue Y

CRUSADER 7/8TH GRADERS LOOK FORWARD TO LAKESIDE BECAUSE: ♥♥ I will get to learn more about God. —Noah ♥♥ I’ll get to go to another Christian school, and I have friends going there. There are also many different things to do there. I can get good education for college. I did many camps for Lakeside and I really like the school. No one can judge you for who you are. —Caitlin ♥♥ I am excited to learn about Jesus there everyday just like at Zion. I am excited to meet a bunch of new people. I am excited for all the electives and to move around between classrooms. —Megan issue 18 • llhs.org/K-8 • page 3

Your Inside Advantage

...teachers share wisdom about high school years This year we are celebrating... SIX DECADES of Christian education at LLHS. Our last contest even had you guessing how many years combined some of our 33 teachers have served here (see p. 4). All that service gives teachers years’ worth of wisdom; several share what makes Lakeside extra special, and some even share tips for our future Warriors...

Mr. Rosenau, any advice/tips for making high school an easier transition? Just be yourself. Don’t try to be what you think others want you to be. You will make true friends this way. Why do you love teaching at Lakeside? I just love being around Christian young people and having the privilege to help them grow into the Christian leaders they can eventually become. And Lakeside donuts… Mrs. Hirschfeld, what should 8th graders know about starting LL? Time flies! You start one day and graduate the next. That is what it feels like...even to the teens as I talk with them. Any advice/tips for making it an easier transition? Write all of your assignments in your planner, take your planner home with you, cross assignments off when you are done with them. Put everything in your backpack before you go to bed so it’s set for morning, and you forget nothing. Mr. Willems, what fun do they have to look forward to? There is literally something for everyone in classes at LLHS: woods, metals, sewing, foods, engineering, government, psychology, math, science, literature, world languages, videography, computer programming, and, of course, God’s Word every day. What’s great about teaching at LL? I love seeing teenagers grow their minds from childhood to adulthood in four short years—and of course, that it is all done within the guidance of God’s Word. Mr. Pufahl, what should 8th graders know about starting at LL? Make sure to get involved, especially in Band. We get to travel all over the country. Any advice or tips? When walking the hallways, make sure to follow the biggest football player. He will make a great blocker for making it through the mass crowds. Mrs. Schommer, what fun to they have to look forward to? Homecoming competitions, homeroom food days, new friendships, my freshman English classroom...puns and plays on words all the time. Why do you love teaching at Lakeside? I can share Jesus any time of the day with anyone. We all have the same goal...eternal life in heaven..together we journey in that direction. page 6 • The Lakeside Advantage • 2019 Issue 1
