Concordia's National Junior Honor Society Inducts 37 new members.

CLS welcomes 37 new middle school inductees to the NJHS student organization known for leadership, scholarship, citizenship, service, and character.  This year, membership included students in sixth, seventh and eighth grade who earned a 93% grade average or higher in all core subjects.

Throughout the year, NJHS has participated in service projects such as Jar Wars which raised money to help meet the needs of underprivileged Cambodian children and the Children's Bereavement Center. Students also provide community service around the school by leading morning pledges and prayers, helping with the Bike Rodeo, and providing free tutoring, and school-wide recycling.

Concordia 8th grader qualifies to attend Duke University this summer for a Sports Management program.

This student took the ACT test last year and scored in the top 5% of all 7th and 8th grade students. As a result, he has been invited to participate in the DUKE TIP program. This summer, he will stay at Duke University and study Sports Management for three weeks. 

The DUKE TIP program is designed to give 7th grade students an opportunity to take either the ACT or SAT college entrance test.  The test is administered in both December or in February.  If they score high enough, they are invited to special summer camps.

The selection criteria for this program is based on sixth graders' IOWA Test scores.  In order to be eligible, a student must score in the 95th percentile in one of the selected assessment areas.

 

Fourth Grade researched important people from the American Revolution and put on a wax museum. Play the video below to see some of what the kids did.

Chapel Family Service Day

Cardinals share the love of Christ this season through Operation Christmas Child and our Chapel Family Service Day.  Our school, church, and local community members were very generous in providing donations of toys, hygeine items, school supplies, and monitary donation. As a result, our school schildren assembled 167 gift boxes for children around the world.  CLS students played a very active role in personally selecting items that were appropriate for their gift box that they prepared for others in need.

In addition to Operation Christmas Child, our students made placemats for senior citizens attending the Raul Jimenez Thanksgiving Dinner. Cardinals also decorated handmade cards to give to church members who are home-bound.  One of the highlights of the Service Day was our guest speaker, Officer Ruby, who talked to children about putting on the full armor of God (Ephesians 6:11-14).  He related this scripture passage with the protective gear that police officers wear on duty.  It was a great reminder to all of us that each day, we need to arm ourselves with truth, righteousness, readiness, faith, and the Word of God.

Students select items to fill gift boxes for children in need.

Operation Christmas Child Provides for Many:

Thank you for your generous donations for Operation Christmas Child. This year, we were able to create 161 gifts for boys and girls around the world.

In addition to making gift boxes, the CLS school children participated in our Chapel Family Service Day where they sang praise songs, learned about mission opportunities, made cards for families staying at the Ronald McDonald House, and created place mats for others in need.

These are some of the ways our school community shares the love of Jesus through acts of service.

Students reinact the nativity scene as they share the message of Christ's birth.

Elementary students worship the Lord with their voices as they share the news of Christ's birth.

Monday-Friday: JAR WARS [CLS students are invited to participate in a fundraiser for NJHS and Juvenile Myositis (JM)]

Lutheran schools have a rich history of excellence in education. Concordia's First Graders provide living proof.  Mrs. McIntosh's and Mrs. Grogan's classes celebrated their reading skills during their own special Super Bowl of Reading. This was a culumating event to mark the end of a special unit designed to maintain enthusiasm for reading. Each individual student earned a football for each book that was read. Then, groups presented selections of readings to eachother. Afterwards, they enjoyed a special lunch and treats together. From the looks of things, they had a wonderful time! Thank you to all of the parents who helped along the way.

NJHS students count donations each day to determine which class is in the lead.

Concordia Cardinals did an outstanding job in their donations during Jar Wars. Together as a school, we were able to raise funds for National Junior Honor Society activities as well as to support Cure Juvenile Myositis (Cure JM), a rare desease that affects children.  It is our hope that through our donatations, a cure can be found. This year's class that raised the most donations was 5th grade. Second place went to 4th grade, and third place went to 1st grade. We appreciate all of your support!

Twenty Questions with a Twist!

This week, several of our classes had a chance to use their geography and technology skills to solve a mystery. They Skyped with another Lutheran school and played 20 questions to identify their unknown location. This was a fun way to celebrate Lutheran Schools Week and were reminded that we are part of the larger body of Christ.

Mr. Cahill's seventh grade class took turns asking geography questions of students from St. Paul Lutheran School in California. Cardinals won their game of 20 Questions and made new Lutheran friends in the process. This was a fun way to use their iPads, SmartBoards and geography skills to locate a sister school in another region of the country.

In doing so, Student Council raised money to support the three Ronald McDonald Houses here in San Antonio, so all of the proceeds stay here in the local community. While the final tallies are not yet in, please know that your generous contributions are appreciated.

Concordia's First Cowboy Breakfast was fabulous! Thank you for all of the volunteers who made this possible: PTL volunteers who helped plan the event and prepare and serve tacos, and dads who arrived early to set up and cook; and our cafeteria staff who provided behind-the-scenes support. We'd also  like to give special thanks to Brandon Gaeke and his team from Turner Construction as well as Bill and Janelle Sykes from CH Guenther & Son, Inc.,  who were generous in their donations of food, equipment, and supplies as well as hard work in planning and preparing the event.

Famous Illustrators and Authors Visit Concordia

E.B. Lewis

Celebrated illustrator E.B. Lewis visited Concordia this month to encourage students to  believe in themselves, to discover their unique, God-given talents, and work hard to develop those talents. Mr. Lewis shared his own story of personal struggles that led him to his current success in hopes of promoting literacy and an appreciation for art. Children were very excited to have their books signed and to hear from this exciting guest presenter.

Last year, children met reknown author Jerry Polatta and were facinated by his story telling magic. We are blessed to have these opportunities to experience reading through the eyes of these professionals. We give special thanks to our librarian Mrs. Moody for coordinating these events.

Thanks for Attending CLS's High School Preview Event

This year's High School Preview was a great benefit to parents and students who are considering high school options.  Principals, admissions directors, and student representatives from private and public high schools were available to answer questions and to talk about transitioning to high school.  Students in grades 7 and 8 and their parents attended various presentations and gathered valuable information.

CLS Robotics Team Places 4th in First Lego League (FLL) City Competition

Our CLS Robotics team placed 4th out of 61 teams during the San Antonio city-wide robotics competition. Our team earned exemplary marks for both mechanical design and for programming. We are so proud of you! Way to represent Concordia! We also commend Mr. Koops for his outstanding coaching!

Concordia's cheerleaders model school pride in many ways. Most recently, they lead a service project to benefit girls in a local emergency shelter. This is the second service project they have completed as a cheer team this year.  Earlier this spring, Ms. Mitchell, their coach, received the following message in a thank you note after they donated clothing and make up:

"I can tell you that girls that were the recipients of your group's generous gifts were so overwhelmed.  They put the scarves on right away and were giggly about the goodies in the bags.  Their house parent was quick to help them read the cards, carefully examine the decorated bags, and talked to the girls about the time put into the scarves and collection of items for the bags.  It is obvious that the girls felt the love you were trying to share.  I truly believe that when God told us to serve the widows and the orphans he meant that we should do so the way the Concordia Cheerleaders did...with all that we have."

Keeping America Strong Progressive Poem

Keeping America Strong

Veterans’ Day Progressive Poem by CLS

 

Sitting here at chapel, thinking about everything you have done

Some are here with us...others are deployed far away

Protecting our nation, deserving our full admiration

Your bravery is unparalleled.

 

You put yourself in danger by choice; we honor your selflessness

Protecting our country one sacrifice at a time

Dedication, courage, strength, endurance and trust

Your service is a blessing to us.

 

You serve God and our country by day, and your family by night

You are our Superheroes, defending our faith, ready for flight

You are a fortress for the weak and a shield for the strong

With your passion and grit we could never go wrong.

 

Like a shining candle of hope whose flame burns bright

You lead the path of peace throughout the night.

Burning and striving for success

You continue to fight for freedom and hopefulness.

 

To those in the Army - our thanks we owe

And the Navy and Air Force - you protect us from our foes

Coast Guard and Marines - we salute to you,

All the armed forces - thanks for everything you do

 

We admire you for being so brave

Day and night for lives you strive to save

You are the best of the best to represent our great nation

Words will never be enough to show our appreciation

 

You set us free with your bravery

You are strong hearted showing chivalry

You sacrifice your love to go on missions

We celebrate you with Veteran’s Day traditions

 

Thank you for your courage

And keeping us safe

Your sacrifice and faith

You are so brave!

 

To many different countries you may roam

While leaving your precious family at home.

They spend much time in prayer

Leaving you in God’s care.

 

We love you in Christ

We appreciate all you do

You are the Best

MAY GOD BLESS YOU!!!

Maya Sanders is about to have her Wish come true....Hear Maya Sanders' incredible story when you click on the following link: http://foxsanantonio.com/news/local/childs-wish-sends-local-family-to-rio-for-olympic-games

Two years ago, Concordia helped raise money for Cure JM which benefits children with Juvenile Myositis.  Maya was diagnosed with this life-threatening autoimmune disease.  Below is an update from her family on her progress:

 

Maya will have her very last IVIG treatment (#32), which is the last medication she is on. This means that one year from tomorrow, God willing, she will be declared in remission. There is no cure for her disease but through our faith and the prayers of many, we are confident and hold onto hope that she is healed completely. 

God has given us this amazing opportunity to go to Rio and witness some of the greatest athletes in the world. Whatever platform He gives us to speak here or at the Olympics, we plan on bringing awareness to Juvenile Dermatomyositis (JM) and praising God and his healing powers. 

Thank you to everyone at Concordia these past almost-3 years for donating blood in her name, praying for her and our family, and keeping up with her progress. I know from the outside it seems like she is doing well (and she is!!) but she has been through a whole lot to get to where she is today. My other girls have been through a lot as well and I am truly thankful that they get to experience this trip also. Thank you, Jesus.
