The prayers of our school community are with you and your family in the coming days as we journey from Palm Sunday’s parade through Jerusalem, to the events of Holy Week, culminating with Christ’s resurrection on Easter Sunday. God’s hope and promise of life eternal are ours through the death and resurrection of our Savior, Jesus Christ. With confidence we celebrate His love to us as we live in relationship with Christ and with one another. It is from Christ’s death and resurrection that Concordia Lutheran High School exists in serving and educating our community. Happy Easter. He is Risen, Alleluia!

With the excitement of graduation, college/career decisions and announcements being made, spring sports and other co-curricular events occuring at full-speed, the stress of school can build. Stress is a reality for everyone of us. Please take time and effort to help yourself with proper diet and sleep, while attending to the academics of school. Unfortunately, stress and anxiety can build beyond what our body and mind can adequately handle, especially in teens who are learning how to balance family, friends, faith, academics, and social responsibilities.
Please save this information of services available to help individuals suffering with a mental illness. Please know that our school counselors, teachers and administrators at Concordia are always available to help.
Did you know that symptoms of mental illness can often appear similar to average teen development? (from: mentalhealthfirstaid.org)

The Lutheran Foundation
The Lutheran Foundation’s vision is spiritual, mental, and physical well-being for all people. In 2013, the Foundation commissioned a comprehensive mental and behavioral health needs assessment which revealed people don’t know where to go for mental health help. LookUp is one of the Foundation’s major initiatives in response to the assessment and the vision of mental wellness for all people.
