From the Principal’s Pen
Dear KML Family,
KML is blessed with a diversely gifted family of students. We daily strive to encourage and equip them for their future on this earth as well as their future with Jesus for eternity. What a privilege it is to help our students reflect on those gifts and ask the question, “How can I use my strengths for the good of others?” In a world which perpetually tells us everything is about us, we reinforce their primary purpose – to make their God known and to serve others. Thank you for believing in and sacrificing for the Christian education our future leaders get to be a part of each day at KML!

Community Blood Drive at KML
Please join us for our blood drive to be held in the KML gym on Wednesday, January 22, from 8:00 AM – 1:00 PM. Student sign-up will take place during lunch periods on Thursday and Friday, January 16 & 17, and on Monday, January 20.

Our Turnabout Dance will be held Saturday, January 25, from 8:00 – 11:00 PM. Student permission forms were sent via email to all students and are required only if your student did not attend the homecoming dance or if they are bringing a guest from another school. The deadline for guest forms is Wednesday, January 22.
Turnabout tickets will be on sale during lunch periods the week of January 20 – 24. Ticket price is $5 per student and $5 for a guest. This is a formal/semi formal event. Please review our formal dress code in the student handbook. If you have any questions, please contact Pastor Randy Hughes (email@example.com).
Each year, KML partners with Martin Luther College (MLC) in New Ulm, MN, to give our students an opportunity to experience what a normal day is like in the life of a college student preparing for full-time ministry in the WELS. For many years, KML has been encouraging students to consider the full-time ministry as pastors, teachers, and staff ministers. This is a great opportunity for KML students to see life at MLC firsthand and receive personal encouragements to continue thinking about becoming a pastor, teacher, or staff minister.
If you have a student who has the gifts to serve in full-time ministry, please encourage them to participate in the second trip to MLC on February 5-6. These are weekdays, which means we will leave from KML after chapel on Wednesday, February 5, and return to campus around 10:00 PM on Thursday, February 6. We will also be partnering with Shoreland Lutheran High School to travel on a coach bus. It is a quick trip, but students will attend college classes, visit KML alumni, and meet new friends! Please contact Pastor Ben Reichel (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions you might have.
