Make ‘em Laugh, Make ‘em Laugh, Make ‘em Laugh!

1Act Web Banner

Our Drama department is excited to present three comedies for this year’s One Act Festival. We invite you to come and laugh with us on Friday, March 6th at 7:00 p.m. and Saturday March 7th at 1:00 p.m. The Friday performance will be a Dessert Theater.  Our Booster Association will provide a fabulous dessert bar for you to enjoy while you watch the show.  All three skits are directed by actors in the senior class. The first skit, Check Please, follows a series of blind dinner dates that couldn’t get any worse—until they do. Next, 13 Ways to Screw up Your College Interview, shares the frustration of two college recruiters as they try to fill the last spot at a prestigious college in an effort to keep their jobs. The third skit, NSA: How to Make Friends and Influence People, demonstrates the value of tapping into the National Security Agency’s arsenal of techniques to get ahead in life.  Admission for each performance is a freewill donation.

Let us entertain you!

Calvary’s Gift – Continuing to Serve

Store Front

Recently, Calvary’s Gift, moved to a new location where they continue to serve Calvary families by taking in donations and re-selling them.  The amazing journey of Calvary’s Gift began five years ago just around the block on Washington Street.  Volunteers came together in an effort to provide some tuition assistance to Calvary students.  The Lord has blessed this ministry to the point of outgrowing their original location.

Now located at 722 Jefferson Street, donation drop-off and shopping are easily accessible.  The open space is tastefully arranged into vignettes for beautiful glassware, decorations for your home, kitchen items,  jewelry, women’s clothing, a shoe room, children’s clothing, a man’s cave, and a reading area.

Our volunteers are happy to take your generous donations…

game night article

For those who don’t know what game night is, game night is a time where all of the students can come to school and hang out with friends and teachers. With the stress of school removed students are able to see their teachers in a new fun light. At game night students are able to compete against other students and teachers in games like basketball, volleyball, and gaga-ball. During the night students can enjoy themselves with various snacks and candies. Game night is a night at school every student can enjoy.

Tenth Academic Year

faculty

Our halls are once again ringing with the exuberant sounds of students returning from summer break. While  summer was less hectic than it is now, there was plenty of activity on our campus. We are very grateful to be using our auditorium, cafeteria space, and gymnasium.

Enrollment increased to 99 at the beginning of this year. We are blessed with an amazing group of educators who give their time and talents to our students and their families, striving to achieve the goal of Building Christian Leaders. We look forward to watching the Lord work in the lives of our students as the year unfolds.

Witnessing Honor

Calvary kids and General Danner

Recently, John Sullivan, a local World War II veteran, received France’s highest award,  the award of the Knight of the Legion of Honor medal as presented by Governor Jay Nixon.  Applications for the honor are reviewed by France and veterans must meet strict criteria.  Sullivan was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army Air Corps and served as a bombardier aboard a B-24 Liberator heavy bomber.  On July 6, 1944, Sullivan’s crew flew the first of 35 bombing missions in the hostile skies over northern France.

Among the family, friends and local dignitaries present at this private ceremony, were four of our Calvary students.  Seniors Trevor Dusheke and Steven Gunn, along with juniors Even Brenner and William Doggett, had the pleasure of meeting Major General Steve Danner–the Adjutant General of the Missouri National Guard.  Gen. Danner presented each of the students with a “challenge coin.”  Additionally, the students had the privilege of having their photograph taken with both Mr. Sullivan and Governor Jay Nixon.

“It was truly an impressive event and one that I believe has positively impacted these students.  Every one of them that I spoke with has expressed an interest in a potential military career with one noting a desire to become a Lutheran military chaplain.” Jeremy Amick remarked. Jeremy took the photograph of the event.

Cross Country New at Calvary

cross country

“God made me fast! And when I run, I feel His pleasure.”  This declaration is attributed to Eric Liddell in the award-winning movie, “Chariots of Fire”. Now students at Calvary Lutheran High School may learn to say the same, as Cross Country joins the expanding roster of sports this Fall.

“I had been hoping for Cross Country to happen here at Calvary—and this year, it has,” says junior John Meyer. “Running is my passion.” John described the beautiful golf courses and parks where the team of five boys and one girl practice every day after school.

Cross Country involves 3.1-mile races run over varied terrain. While it tends to be more of an individual effort, team scores are kept.  It is similar to golf in that the lowest score wins.

Kerri Morris is the coach with enthusiasm to spare.  “I love running, and I hope to encourage students in a pursuit of lifelong fitness. I am truly grateful for this opportunity to work with such a great group of kids and parents at Calvary. It is exciting and fun to help start a program from the beginning.”

A marathon runner herself, Kerri has much coaching experience with high school students.  She continues to coach girls track here at Calvary, and currently coaches Cross Country at Trinity Lutheran School, as well.

Coach Kerri Morris says this “hardworking group of kids with terrific attitudes” focuses on hill training for endurance and conditioning exercises (sit-ups and push-ups!)  to develop a strong trunk.  They learn to “run smart” by adjusting their stride along their way. And that is how they run the race!
