In January, we will remember the 1967 and 2002 team for what they achieved on the gridiron. That is a good thing. Even 49 years later, we honor those who did something special and are not forgotten in time.

It’s a great reminder during the hustle and bustle of the season. I need to be still and remember that during everything else that I have going on I am still a wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend and a child of Jesus Christ.

On November 29, the nation celebrates Giving Tuesday. What an awesome way to demonstrate giving and thankfulness. Our Concordia family is so blessed because it has faculty, staff, alumni, parents, and grandparents that truly care about the overall well being of the students and providing that Christ-centered education and experience. I encourage you to consider contributing to the Concordia family this Giving Tuesday. Praise the Lord, give thanks to the Lord and bless others!!
As we signed up for posting to the new CLHS blog I was flooded with ideas to write about. I’ve got about four blog posts “started” with ideas, notes, links, fragments, etc. to keep the creative juices flowing. It wasn’t until about four hours ago that this post was started.
Every day Concordia has 800-plus students, teachers, and staff cycle through the cafeteria in four separate lunch sittings to feed the school community. At the end of every lunch period we as a community stand and pray, “Oh give thanks unto the Lord for He is good, and His mercy endures forever. Amen.” In this goodness and mercy, I give thanks for our kitchen and custodial staff who prepare the meals, clean the tables, floors and dishes, every day. Likewise, I am thankful for the wonderful people of God who minister at Concordia as secretaries, assistants, nurses, and directors.
This fall the Honors Academy students are busy hitting the road as they visit various schools both in state and out of state. While the Honors Academy is in its third year of formation with nine freshmen, sixteen sophomores and eleven juniors, each class of students has a different focal point for their fall trips.
