This January we have had a lot of fun at The Lutheran Academy!
Here we have pictured out school with Mrs. Val Caple, Vice President of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Commission here in Scranton! She came and shared with the students about the work of Martin Luther King and how he was led by God to be a very important blessing to our nation!
Here we are celebrating our "AWESOMEST" teacher's birthday! Happy Birthday Ms. L!
This picture is of the excitement of being invited to Mrs. Sharyn Martucci's house with her gracious husband Bob, for a Christmas Lunch - in January! :)
One of the things that we do really well at The Lutheran Academy is FIELD TRIPS! Field trips are so easy because we can all fit in our 15 passenger van and just GO! :) This week we attended a special presentation by the University of Scranton Exchange Students who shared about their home countries of Korea, Japan, and Columbia! The kids got to "Go to College" for the day and dream a bit about when THEY can go to university!
After the presentation we are treated to a lunch by the University (and the student from Columbia ate with us! And lastly a pose by one of our students in front of a traditional Columbian dress!
On Thursday, October 4th at 7pm we had a most blessed gathering of staff, volunteers, current and former students, and friends of the Academy. We all came together to say farewell to Mrs. Scheller who worked most diligently and faithfully as our teacher for five years! We are SO thankful for her and we were pleased to have this even to say "Thank You"!
God bless you, Mrs. Scheller, and THANK YOU - from all of us!
The school year is underway and our first field trip was to Miller's Orchard to see the farm! It was a great time indeed! This was the last day that we had Mrs. Scheller along with us. :(
During the Year End Program the Chime Choir played. Here is the youtube video of "For the Beauty of the Earth"!
Also…. here is another video… this time of an alumnus of the Academy! Hannah Bjornstad played in Mr. Ray Cramer's student recital this past June 13, 2012. Hannah is 16 years old and attend The Lutheran Academy for her 5-7th grades.
On Thursday, June 14th, the students of the Lutheran Academy presented a program of beautiful music for their families and the other generous supporters of the school! In addition to the music, the students were each presented a character award! It was a beautiful time for everyone! God bless ALL our students! THANK YOU TO ALL OUR FAMILIES AND SUPPORTERS FOR A WONDERFUL YEAR!!!! WE MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE TOGETHER!
For several years now, St. Stephen's Lutheran Church has been inviting the Academy to sing and play for the joint Ascension Day worship service held there. The kids were very excited to share their music and they did an absolutely WONDERFUL JOB! God has truly blessed them in so many ways! Here pictured is the little rehearsal before the service with our Choir Director Ginger Daubenhauser directing them. Praise God!
On Monday, April 2, 2012, our Academy kids all piled into the van and spent a beautiful afternoon with the residents of the Scranton Health Care Center. We were able to share the message of Holy Week with the residents and definitely lift their spirits with lots of singing led by our Choir Director Ginger Daubenhauser! We even played our chimes for them!
The Academy was privileged to be chosen to sing at the Mother's Against Drunk Driving vigil December 5th at the downtown Wells Fargo bank. The choir sang at the reception before the vigil, during the vigil, and also at the conclusion of the presentation ceremony of the student poster contest sponsored by MADD. The kids did an awesome job and everyone was very pleased! Thank you Ginger Daubenhauser, our Choir Director, for doing such a great job preparing the kids! And thank you to Sharyn Martucci for arranging all the details for us to participate in this event!
We all had a GREAT time at the farm! Thanks everyone!
