Selah: Pause & Reflect

For the past few years I have chosen a word to frame my year instead of a resolution. Often it has been a one-time, half-hearted commitment to a word. In 2018 I chose “go,” and on January 2 I forgot about it. In 2019 I chose “joy,” and I spent my year filling notebooks with things that brought me joy each day, even when I was feeling less than joyful. In 2020 I chose a word that I had never heard before and barely understood. I didn’t know why, but I felt like “Selah” was going to be my 2020. And as the events of this year started barreling in, I knew it was the perfect fit.

Statement from Mychal Thom, Head of School

We are deeply saddened and disturbed over the recent killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless others in the past due to racial injustice.  We lift up their families in prayer.  We also lift up all those that have been mistreated due to the color of their skin, those that are made public and those that are not.  In short, these have to stop.  Our faculty and staff are committed to actively building and investing in relationships, to walk alongside our students and families as we seek to affect a positive change in a Christ-centered way.  At times we do so privately.  At other times a public response is needed. In all circumstances, however, we seek God’s wisdom, guidance, and direction.

Certainty in Uncertainty

This year, seniors enrolled in English Literature were asked to write two poems: one saying goodbye and one saying hello. The assignment’s intent, more so than evaluating achievement of standards, was to allow the seniors a place to reflect on the changes they had and were about to experience in their lives. I didn’t realize the poems would produce a more significant theme.

You, LORD, Remain the Same

I am a Concordia graduate. Some of the teachers I had are still here and even the classrooms feel the same, smell the same. Yet it’s all very different. I’m now teaching with the teachers who taught me, and my classroom is the same one I took AP Statistics in while I was a student here.

Interviewing the Future

For my junior AP English class, we always end the year with creating a college portfolio. Students gather information to use for applications in the fall. They draft application essays, create or update a resume, draft a business letter to request a recommendation, and fill out a college application, among other things.

Drop off and Pickup Days on May 27-29

From Wednesday, May 27 to Friday, May 29, we are welcoming students back to campus in a limited capacity to retrieve materials and clean out lockers as well as returning CLHS items, such as books, computers, art supplies, music, etc. to the school. Seniors will also be walking across the stage in a “virtual graduation” for a photo and video. You are assigned a day to come based on your last name. It’ll be important that we honor those days as much as possible to limit any potential bottlenecks of students. See link for all details.

Summer Classes are still continuing

I have been in charge of coordinating our summer school program here at CLHS for the last four years, and I wanted to get the word out that we are still planning to hold summer school this year despite formatting changes due to social distancing guidelines! Just as we have in the past, we are planning to offer a wide range of classes throughout two different sessions that students can take either for recovery credit or to work ahead on graduation requirements.
