Character Amongst Athletes

Lincoln Lutheran Middle School sent two teams to the Trinity Lutheran Grand Island Tournament and had success.  The A-Team took first place and the B-Team took fourth place out of eight teams who were invited to the tournament.  In a tournament the character of athlete is very apparent.  One of the most important rules of engagement is to have quiet confidence when a team takes the court and the A-Team definitely demonstrated this concept.  The comments that flowed to me from referees, coaches, parents, family and everyone else amazed me.  One item of interest that I have been trying to teach them is that you do not know who is watching and they judge your character by what an athlete does on and off the court.  I will share some of the comments that were made:

Referee:  Where did you get those girls? Coach:  They were my B-Team last year.  Referee:  I do not know what you have done with them but keep it up (The referee was one of the same ones that we had last year). 

With Valor

 Warriors 20, Syracuse 38

 The Answer is: With Valor 

I have never enjoyed games at Syracuse. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not bashing the town or anything like that. It’s just the feel there isn’t welcoming.  The bleachers can’t hold the whole hometown crowd and so infiltrators sit amongst the Warrior fans, the announcer butchers our players’ names, the dad cheer squad irritates me and the nachos don’t come with jalapenos.  I digress. Back to the title of this review. 

The question which the title answers is one that popped into my mind during the 3rd Quarter when Syracuse took a long pass in for a TD and then took a botched pass to the kicker and converted it into a 2pt effort.  The question continued to buzz in my brain when the Warriors couldn’t answer on a 4th and 2 effort.  The question was: How does character respond? 

Family Day

Family Day - A Day to Eat Dinner with Your Children, is a national movement to inform parents that the parental engagement fostered during frequent family dinners is an effective tool to help keep America’s kids substance free. Family Day reminds parents that Dinner Makes A Difference! We hope we can count on your support for Family Day 2009, which will be celebrated nationwide on Monday, September 28th!


Middle School Drama

The middle school students are working on a production of American Idle under the watchful eyes of Mrs. Kuhn and Miss Nuckols.  This show guarantees entertainment as it is a parody of the show we all know, maybe love,  or maybe love to hate, American Idol. You can support the middle school students, the directors, and the production by purchasing a t-shirt.  It will be a black shirt with the logo very similar to that of the real “American Idol” but with the adjustment in the title and the names of the cast, directors, and the technical and production crews on the back. T-shirts will cost $10.00 each.  Check the next online newsletter for forms. If you have additional questions about the shirts, please contact Sharon Groothuis at 489-3024 (Messiah Lutheran School), 438-9360 (home), or at
