Kettle Moraine Lutheran High School

Thankful for the Power of ONE

PO1
 

Each of us has so many different things for which to be thankful … family, friends, work, home, and more. At KML we are individually thankful for the one thing that unites us as family … the power of the grace of Jesus Christ that is freely given to each of us. That one personal gift is the Power of ONE which unites us in thanksgiving. We share the same mission and purpose to teach the truths of Jesus to others. We see the world through a biblical lens. We look forward to standing next to the eternal Savior in heaven. Our lives are filled with gratitude.

 

The KML faculty, students, and staff are thankful for your prayers and support. We are united by the Power of ONE!

NHS Induction

Kettle Moraine Lutheran High School recently inducted 57 students into its chapter of the National Honor Society. Students must have maintained at least a 3.3 cumulative grade point average as well as demonstrated significant leadership, character, and community service contributions during their high school years. KML's chapter now includes 95 members.

Guest speaker, Mr. Jay Shambeau, highlighted students' efforts beyond KML in the future, reminding them of the Christian attitude in the workplace. The NHS officers each spoke on the four pillars of the organization - scholarship, service, leadership, and character. A reception to welcome new members followed the ceremony. The KML National Honor Society is advised by Mrs. Barb Olsen.

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving back. On the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, you’ll have the chance to join people around the world and support a cause close to your heart. This #GivingTuesday we need your support to help KML educate, encourage and equip God’s people for life and for eternity.

Once again, we thank the Lord for John and Sue Bieberitz for providing a gift-matching opportunity. This year Dave and Sarah Egelseer and an anonymous donor have also joined their lead to collectively match every gift up to $50,000 that is made on #GivingTuesday, November 29. Mark your calendars, spread the word, and stay tuned for more details!

You Are Invited!

Please join us for a pre-concert reception on Saturday, December 10, at 6:00 PM in the KML Cafeteria. This reception is for members of our Builders program, Macedonian Circle, and Heritage Society.
