Today In History... marks the 80th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and other areas within the Hawaiian islands; and is also National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.  80 years ago, today, this military attack on U.S. soil led the U.S. to officially enter World War II in December 1941.

Just before 8:00am on that Sunday morning, Japanese planes began a surprise air raid on Pearl Harbor which destroyed or damaged 20 American naval vessels and over 300 aircraft.  2,403 American lives were lost as a result of the attack – including Navy personnel, Marines, Army members, and civilians.  The USS Arizona was hardest hit, with nearly half the total loss of life coming from service members aboard this vessel alone.

Each year, remembrance events are held at the Memorial, culminating in a commemoration ceremony on Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day. This year’s Pearl Harbor anniversary commemoration theme is Valor, Sacrifice, and Peace, focusing on heroic courage in the face of danger, the sacrifices made by members of the military both during and after the bombing, and the difficult path to peace upon which America found herself 80 years ago.      

We are thankful to our Lord for those who sacrificed for the safety of our country.             (adapted from Lucas, Melissa. MilitaryConnection. 2021)

Bible Verse:  Isaiah 43:2:  “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you; when you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.”

Happy Birthday today to: Freshman Dalton B.

  1. There will be a Baseball parent/student meeting on Thursday at 5:30pm in the Cafeteria.  
  2. It is our intent for Student Council to once again host our formal Christmas Dance on December 18th.  That means that outside guests will be allowed ONLY AFTER you provide a properly signed permission slip for your guest.  Permission forms are available in the school office.  Masking requirements will be enforced.  However, as we saw before break, COVID can appear without warning and the administration will act as necessary for the good of the health of Lutheran High School (especially with finals the week after the dance).  More information will be given in future announcements and in the Ledger.
  3. Auditions for the LuHi spring musical "Charlotte's Web" are next Wednesday and Thursday from 3:30-5:30, and callbacks (if needed) will be on Friday from 3:30-4:30. You may sign up for an audition date outside of Mr. Zander's classroom. If you are interested in pre-audition materials to help you prepare, please see Mr. Zander. 
  4. Crusader Aider wreath order pick-up is TODAY from 3-6pm in the LuHi garage...off the WEST parking lot.

Basketball Updates:

Here is the update on the final 2 games of the boys basketball New Berlin Turkey Tourney.  Friday, the team had most of its players back and capitalized by taking a lead of 10. Although the boys played as a team, they struggled in the second half. Lincolnwood took advantage, winning the game.

 Saturday, the team played South County. With an aggressive start, LuHi again ran the lead up by 10. Struggling in  the last 3 minutes of the first half, the team fell by 6 going into the locker room. At one point, South County had a 12-point lead, but by the end of the third quarter, we had whittled it down to 8.  Calling on teamwork and the effort put in at practices, LuHi outscored South County 20 to 8 in the fourth quarter for a good team win.

A Short History of Veterans’ Day

World War I – known at the time as “The Great War” - officially ended when the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919; however, fighting actually ceased seven months earlier when an armistice between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. For that reason, November 11, 1918, is generally regarded as the end of “the war to end all wars.”  In November 1919, President Wilson proclaimed November 11 as the first commemoration of Armistice Day with the following words: "To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations…"  (U.S. Dept. of Veterans Affairs, 2015)  Unlike Memorial Day, Veterans Day pays tribute to all American veterans—living or dead—but especially gives thanks to living veterans who served their country honorably during war or peacetime. (History.com, 2009)

7th Hour Announcements

Teachers: The band members are to be released 15 minutes early from 8th to prepare for the assembly and the Junior Volleyball players need to be released 5 minutes early. We will do PA announcements for these dismissals.

Here is the NHS Canned Food update as of 1:00pm today:

  Freshmen – 182

  Sophomores – 68

  Juniors – 101

  Seniors – 121

  And the “senior seniors” – 35

This gives us a total of 507 items, so we are halfway there. With Friday off, the food drive has been extended until NOON on Monday. Keep donating LuHi!

Abigail and Makenna are in the running for the State Journal Register’s Athlete of the Week; and Makenna is also in the running for Channel 1450 PrimeTime Performer. Vote for both through Friday!

We wish Abigail and the Varsity Volleyball team and its coaches well in their State appearances. We pray for safe travels and awesome dives, digs, and volleys for all.

Who would win a battle between the Spartans and the Crusaders ? No, this is not a new video game or a History assignment, but was an actual soccer battle on Saturday.

Duncan S. scored the second goal as LuHi went into halftime up 2-0. Landon S. scored off a beautiful free kick assist from Duncan.

The Lady Crusaders traveled to Plains last evening for a rematch of the County tournament.  The girls did not disappoint and came out with the game plan and executed flawlessly.  They took game 1, 25-19.  They maintained the lead in game 2, but Plains answered to take it to 3.  The girls were point for point in game 3 until Plains’ tough serving took us out of serve-recieve for a couple points which shifted the momentum.  The girls lost game 3, but seeing the improvement and passion elevate from Monday makes a coach proud.  Keep working ladies - these are the games that push our ability to its highest!  

Thanks to ALL the amazing fans in our student section - you did not disappoint!  So proud of you and the class act that you are - supporting your fellow schoolmates!

  3. Basketball & Cheerleader carwash tomorrow at the Wabash Ave. Ace Hardware from 10-2.

 Soccer Update:

If you missed the soccer game, it’s hard to describe the great comeback by the Crusaders. The score was tied at 1 at halftime off an awesome header by Mason K. from a corner taken by Reece B. But LuHi went down 3-1 with just over 21 minutes left to play. These Crusaders never gave up and got a goal back by Landon S. off an assist from Reece.  Leo L. scored to tie the game at 3 off an assist from Duncan S. Lutheran had some great chances, but could not find another goal and the game ended in a tie 3-3. Come out to the field this afternoon at 4:00 to watch the game and join in honoring our seniors.

 Volleyball Update:

Volleyball traveled to Petersburg for a non-conference match-up with the BlueJays.  The freshmen came out taking game1, losing game 2, and finishing 10-11 in game 3 before time was called.  Great work, girls!

 The JV team faced a very tough Porta team losing in 2.  We saw some good hustle plays, but Porta was a bit bigger at the net.

 The varsity team came out in complete domination in game 1, but the BlueJays found some holes in the defense to take game 2.  With some adjustments and great play, the Saders took control of the 3rd game, and  even with a little fight by Porta in the end, it didn’t rattle the Saders and they won in 3.  The girls were led in kills by Makenna with 16, Kaleigh with 14, and Ali with 8.  The defense was incredible: Kaleigh had 30 digs, Makenna had 25, and Anna 21!! Caleina had 40 assists and Kaleigh had 9 aces on the night. 

Today’s Activities:

Soccer @ Home vs. Mt. Pulaski - 4:00.  It’s Senior Night!!!  Come watch the game and then join the seniors in celebrating the hard work they’ve put in over their LuHi career!

The entire Varsity Volleyball team.  The girls are 9-0 and are winning every game because of the cohesiveness of the team.  Each girl shines at times, but the whole team deserves recognition this week!

Finally, in observance….

In the years since September 11th, 2001, this date has been officially designated, Patriots’ Day...a day to remember those who were killed or injured in the terrorist attacks on our country’s soil, a day when first responders and common men and women alike became heroes, and a day to remember all of those who have been involved in the War on Terror since that date.  

Students, although none of you were even born on this dark day in our country’s history, you still feel the effects of 9/11, but you probably don’t even know it.  Take some time to talk with someone who is old enough to remember what happened...take some time today and tomorrow to lift up in prayer for those who were, and continue to be, affected by the tragedy...take some time to think about this day in our history which so changed our worldview.   This is a day for us to remind you, our next generation, to stay vigilant in defending our country, our liberty, and our way of life. 

Each year on 9/11, we stand together, and proclaim, "never forget", and we thank our Lord because we are blessed to live in this land!!
