View the Capital Campaign Groundbreaking announcement video

The celebration will begin promptly at 5:30PM, so be sure to come a little bit earlier to get parked and meet everyone on the east side of the school. At 6PM there will be a cookout reception for all to enjoy. This evening is also the night of our annual Homecoming bonfire. After the half-hour groundbreaking celebration, be sure to stick around and tour the student-decorated Homecoming themed hallways. If you like powderpuff football, you may want to catch the action at 7:15PM on Lancer Field. Weather permitting the bonfire will take place at approximately 8PM. See you there! For more information about the Capital Campaign visit www.mlhslancers.org/campaign.

School Pictures

School photos were taken last week during homeroom, if your student missed getting their photograph taken there will be an opportunity when we have photo re-takes.That date is currently to be determined. After all photos have been processed and edited we will provide a link in the Lancer Express and on social media for photo purchases.  


This year’s Fall Festival and Concert will be Sunday October 22nd, 2023. Doors will open at 2pm, when the silent auction begins, and the concert will take place at 4pm and will showcase the talents of our 121 students that make the Fine Arts Department as wonderful as it is. This year the proceeds will go directly towards MLHS Students that are participating in the Fine Arts Trip to Nashville, TN in April. We hope to raise enough funds to help offset the cost of the trip and make it affordable for everyone.

Please consider donating an item or service to our Fall Festival Silent Auction. We are in need of baskets and/or goods and items to be auctioned off. Whether it’s a complete basket or something that can be combined with other items, every donation is needed and appreciated. This is a long-standing tradition of the Fall Festival and we hope to keep it going and make it the best year yet. Baskets and donations can be dropped off in the main office at Manitowoc Lutheran High School from October 12th through the 20th. Or contact Kris Buege at 714-539-1478 to arrange pick up and with any questions.

We are infinitely grateful of your support to MLHS and the Fine Arts Students. Every gift is valued and means so much to us.


Set Building Help Needed

The fall production of "Rip Van Winkle" & "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" still needs help constructing a couple items for its November performance. As of now, we have no one in charge of set construction. Any help is greatly needed and appreciated! Direct interest and questions to Mr. James Otto (jotto@mlhslancers.org). Thank you for considering!
