  3. All PE and sports bags need to be picked up from the gym before you leave school today and tomorrow.

Volleyball Update:

The girls showed the crowd an exciting night of Volleyball. The JV came out against a good Hartsburg team to play point-for-point, but couldn’t quite pull out the win. Losing 25-18, 25-20, but such a great match!

And hold on to your hats, fans……..The varsity faced a tough rival team that always elevates our play. The Lady Crusaders started off the night with phenomenal defense and net play to easily control the lead-- pulling ahead 22-13, BUT Hartem did not give up. They clawed their way back and capitalized on some errors to win game 1, 26-24, in a nail-biter. The great thing about the Lady Crusaders is that they will not let a game 1 loss dictate their night. The girls came out in domination once again, controlling most of the game, yet Hartem made it interesting by tying it up, but the Crusaders came out on top of game 2, 26-24. The most impressive part of game 2 was when both teams kept a rally alive for 24 back and forth contacts with the Saders winning that momentum-shifting point! Game 3 was very similar to the last 2 with the Saders controlling and Hartem fighting back. The Saders pulled out the victory with big defense, big blocking, and big swings! The consistent setting by Paige and serve-receive in the back line kept the girls steady to claim a HUGE 25-22 win. Erin led in kills with 12 and Kaleigh with 10, while Anna had 18 digs on the night and Paige had a big 35 assists. What a fun night of volleyball!

  • Five reasons why you should give blood:
  1. Less than 10% of eligible donors donate. Blood donation is completely safe and every part of the process is regulated by the FDA.
  2. Blood donations are essential for trauma patients and patients undergoing intense surgeries, as well as those with cancer and various other diseases.
  3. This process that SAVES LIVES only takes about an hour of your time!
  4. There is little pain involved. Most people who do not donate blood are afraid of the needle, but for most, it is barely a pinch. AaaaaND….they give you FREE snacks afterward!
  5. It doesn’t have to be a one-time gift. You can donate different components of your blood, including red blood cells, white blood cells, and even plasma.

Consider signing up to donate this week for LuHi’s Blood Drive located AT the Central IL Community Blood Center. Sign up either through the email sent home last week or LuHi’s Facebook page. Parent permission forms for 16 year olds are available in the school office, everyone needs an ID when checking in,...and tell them LuHi sent you.

Basketball Update:

We had a good team win last night against a tough Mt.Pulaski squad, winning 59 to 50. The seniors’ leadership skills kept the score in the Saders’ favor. We had 16 assists, along with 20+ defensive rebounds.

The Saders started out slow in the first half, but with a good half time talk, the players came out and played better team defense. We had a chance to press in the second half, which made the difference in the game. We went on a 19 to 2 run in the third quarter to put the game away for the Conference win, besting Pawnee, 52-30. Great job by the cheerleaders. It was fun to have a little bit of normal back in the gym!

It is Inauguration Day. From the sounds of ceremonial artillery and church bells ringing across New York City in President Washington’s first inauguration, to President Jefferson’s ride on horseback from the Capitol to the President's House, inaugural festivities have reflected not only the president they honor, but also the desire of Americans to celebrate our nation's rich history and the peaceful transfer of presidential power. (Excerpts taken from “The White House Historical Association”) Lutheran High School will be showing today’s Presidential Inauguration in the Learning Commons, as well as in some classrooms. This will not be viewed as a political statement, debate, or discussion, but to simply witness a historical event in the United States. On this day, we pray for our country; we pray for those assuming new roles in our governmental leadership, as well as those transitioning to a new phase in their lives.

A short Thanksgiving history...Originating as a harvest festival, Thanksgiving has been celebrated nationally on and off since 1789 when George Washington issued the first Thanksgiving proclamation by the U.S. government calling upon Americans to express their gratitude for the happy conclusion to the country’s war of independence and the successful ratification of the U.S. Constitution.

Abraham Lincoln, in an 1863 proclamation, entreated all Americans to ask God to “commend to His tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife” and to “heal the wounds of the nation.” He scheduled Thanksgiving for the final Thursday in November, and it was celebrated on that day every year until 1939, when Franklin D. Roosevelt moved the holiday up a week in an attempt to spur retail sales during the Great Depression. Roosevelt’s plan, known derisively as Franksgiving, was met with passionate opposition, and in 1941, he reluctantly signed a bill officially making Thanksgiving the fourth Thursday in November.   (Excerpt adapted from a History Channel article)

Enjoy your Thanksgiving with family and friends!  We’ll see you on Monday.

Veterans’ Day is a time for us to pay our respects to those who have served. For one day, we stand united in respect of our veterans.  This holiday started as a day to reflect upon the heroism of those who died in our country's service and was originally called Armistice Day It fell on Nov. 11, because that is the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. However, in 1954, the holiday was changed to "Veterans’ Day" in order to account for all veterans in all wars.  We celebrate and honor America's veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice to uphold our American freedoms.

Track Update:

Congratulations to the BOYS Track Team for their usual strong performance.    They traveled to Gillespie yesterday for the 1A SECTIONAL Track Meet and pulled off some miraculous feats.  The LuHi 4x100M relay team (Marshawn M., Justin K., Caleb S., and Jay M.) ran one of their best relays of the year.  Jay showed once again he is a top sprinter in Central Illinois with a couple of strong finishes in the 100M and the 200M dashes.   Jay, you are a gallant runner. Justin has taken on a new event this past season in the 400M dash. At sectionals, he turned in one of his best performances of the year.  Way to go Justin. Last but not least, was the strong discus performance by Senior Garrett D. Despite the mud, holes, and 30 MPH wind gusts throughout the competition, in the last throw of his high school career, Garrett threw a school record breaking discus toss of 131 feet 7 inches to eclipse the old mark of 131 feet 3 1/4 inches set in 1994 by Jon Benning.     

Congratulations to all of you young men for a fabulous SECTIONAL meet and a great track season.

All over the world this Sunday, multitudes will gather in churches, homes, and other places to celebrate the mothers in their lives.  It is a time of recognizing the many mother figures in your life: birth mothers, step-mothers, mothers-in-laws, grandmothers, spiritual mentoring mothers.  As Christians, we look to the Fifth Commandment, the first commandment with a promise, to see that we begin with honoring our fathers and our mothers. But that promise, as St. Paul says, tells us that we should honor our mothers (and fathers) that it may be well with us and that we may live a long life.

While we celebrate this day once a year, on a Sunday in May, we are to honor our mothers everyday.  So, this Sunday, remember that special person in your life, and hold her, and all mothers, in high esteem and honor.
