Learn Your Lancers!

Greetings Lancer Family! This week we will be led in chapel by one of two longest tenured Lancers. Mr. Wayne Foelske was recently our first person featured for the  Lancer Spotlight. The Lancer Spotlight will highlight faculty, staff, students, and alumni. Each week on Tuesday watch for the Lancer Spotlight on all of our social media outlets, as well as around school. 

Wayne has been serving at MLHS since 1999, he currently is the Chairman of the science department and is currently teaching biology, honors advanced biology, earth and space science, and our newest science course, introduction to agriscience. 

This week our chapel will focus on Psalm 46, which was Martin Luther's favorite Psalm. Just as Luther found strength and comfort during difficult times in the Psalm, so do we. Join us each day this week on Livestream

Pastor Kock would also teach Latin 1 and 2.  If he accepts this call, the MLHS Federation would look to call a new President as soon as possible. Regardless of his decision, President Kock would continue to serve as MLHS President for the remainder of this school year. Please pray for him, his family, and MLHS during this time of deliberation.
