12 Days of Christmas at KML

Over twelve days in December, KML’s Student Council and National Honor Society work to collect money through student involvement to support families in need. Parents, federation members, alumni, friends, and the community are encouraged to donate as well.

This December we are raising money to help the Bublitz, Schram, and Strong families. For more information about these families or the 12 Days of Christmas at KML or to donate to support them, visit



Call News

Pastor Ben Reichel has returned the call he received to serve as the pastor at Emmanuel Lutheran Church in Hudson, WI, and the call to serve as the pastor at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Rapid City, SD, and will continue to serve at KML teaching Word of God 12 and Latin.

Mrs. Amanda Cvikel has accepted the call to teach Foods and Sewing at KML, filling the vacancy upon Mrs. Linda Hering’s upcoming retirement at the end of this school year. Mrs. Cvikel is a KML alum (nee Jung, ’04), and we look forward to welcoming her back on campus next fall!



Thank You for Your Prayers and Support on GivingTuesday

With partners like you, we are truly growing together! What a blessing to have your prayers and support as we respond to God’s blessings. The faculty, staff, and students of Kettle Moraine Lutheran High School are overwhelmed by the many donors who have given their support to our KML ministry. We ask God for his continued blessings as we strive to meet the challenge to raise the funds for our next building expansion to meet the needs of our growing enrollment.

Our GivingTuesday goal was to reach 500 total donors to the Let’s Grow Together campaign. Our generous supporters exceeded that goal by adding 574 donors to the campaign, just for GivingTuesday, for an amazing 924 total donors to Let’s Grow Together! All praise to our Heavenly Father who has blessed us through you!

With so many great ministries to support on GivingTuesday, we are especially thankful that you shared your gifts with KML to help us grow together as we respond to God’s continued blessings of more and more KML families. Let’s Grow Together!
