What a Year it Was

Fiscal Year 2021 has wrapped up, and although it has been a year full of questions and struggles, it has also been a year of blessings!

From trying to navigate how, or if, we were going to be able to start school amid a pandemic to installing plexiglass throughout the building, watching the students fill the halls wearing masks, serving meals in classrooms daily to prevent the spread of germs, watching ball games and performing art performances on-line rather than in person — what a year it has been not only for our students, but also for their families, CLHS faculty, staff, & administration!

We’re thankful for everyone’s cooperation and understanding as we navigated the waters of this past year, and we’re so very blessed by the wonderful donations and support from so many of our community organizations and members.

A big shout out to The Lutheran Foundation for their generous donation not only to our new Zollner complex, but also for their extra financial assistance during the year. Another big shout out to The Mary Cross Tippmann Foundation for their generous financial support for the resurfacing of the tennis courts and renovating of the third-floor bathroom.

Without organizations such as these, Concordia Lutheran Schools would not be sitting in the financial position we are today, so for that we are so very thankful.

Our hats are off to not only these organizations, but to everyone that participated in our Cadets in Cadence Dinner Auction last December but to those that have provided us with a monetary contribution to benefit one of our athletic, fine arts, or various other programs; to those they have sewed masked; to those that have lent a helping hand around our building assisting a project or program; or just lifted up a student and/or CLHS in prayer. Without all of you, our ministry here is not possible — so with all our hearts WE THANK YOU!
