After having studied basic Christian doctrine from the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod (LCMS) perspective last semester, Mr. Lindsey is leading our students in a study of other Christian denominations and other world religions this semester in comparison to the teachings of the LCMS. To that end, our school was pleased to welcome Father Luke Ferris, of Sacred Heart Parish in Shawano, as a guest speaker today. Father Ferris eloquently touched on the vast similarities between our two church bodies and respectfully addressed our doctrinal differences as well. The students enjoyed having an opportunity to ask him questions and our Roman Catholic students were particularly pleased to interact with him. We are thankful and honored for Father Ferris’ willingness to be with us!Read More

The Silver Eagles Forensics Team competed at the Sub-district Competition at Shawano High School. The entire team earned scores high enough to move to the next round. Participants were: Andrew Schmidt – Humorous Prose, Kanon Schneider – Radio, James Schmidt – Radio, Blaine Andrada – Humorous Prose, and Carley Lenz – Humorous Prose. With a combination of returning state medalists and freshmen newcomers, the team has high hopes for district competition coming up on March 22 in Marinette, WI. “We need to work hard between now and then, but I think our chances of qualifying for state competition are very good,” said Coach Jennifer Blake.
Congratulations to the entire team!Read More

The Wolf River Lutheran High School drama department hosted an afternoon of dessert theater this past Sunday in the school’s gymnasium. The production, Parents Just Don’t Understand, written by Bryan Starchman, consisted of a series of ten comedic but poignant vignettes about the ups and downs of parents rearing teenagers…or is it teenagers rearing parents?
Mrs. Jennifer Blake, our English teacher, directed the production and was excited about the big turnout and proud of the effort given by the eleven students who participated in the cast. “They did an amazing job,” said Mrs. Blake, “and I couldn’t be prouder of their efforts.” She added, “I was probably the most nervous about the tenth scene because it seemed to be the one part that we had trouble getting through in the rehearsals. Fortunately, it went smoothly when it mattered.” When asked what scene was the funniest in her opinion, she said, “It’s a tie between scene 6 (“To Grandmother’s House We Go”) and scene 8 (“The Talk”), but they were all funny.” Jimmy Luepke, a senior, said, “As the rehearsals progressed, I got more and more excited and when I noticed the big crowd, it made the hard work more satisfying.” Carley Lenz, a freshmen and newecomer to drama productions, commented, “It was more fun than I thought it would be and it went a lot smoother than I thought too.”
Our thanks to everyone who supplied the many delicious homemade desserts that were served and for those attendees who supported WRLHS with a free-will donation that raised approximately $400.
