Homework-How Much is Too Much?

Posted by Courtney Burns on Dec 5, 2017 5:30:00 AM

As a parent, the most frequent point of contention I have with my teen and tween is homework.  As a school counselor, it is a frequent concern voiced by parents.  Homework can quickly become a power struggle, turning kitchen tables into battlefields and consuming family time in the evenings.  While there is no easy rule for how many minutes of homework a child “should” have each night, and some nights will have more homework than others, there are ways to help ease the burden.

Posted by Jacob Kothe on Nov 14, 2017 5:49:00 AM

Playing high school sports is a tremendous experience in which lasting memories and friendships are formed.  As seniors end their athletic seasons, many of them seek opportunities to extend these experiences into the collegiate level.  They have invested countless hours into becoming better athletes playing a game they love, and they realize the huge impact that competing in college can make on their lives.  However, college recruitment can be a tricky process.  How should families begin the journey?

The Power of High School Internships

Posted by Emily Blank on Nov 7, 2017 5:00:00 AM

High school students should have many opportunities to explore their passions.  At Faith Lutheran High School, we have created five distinct Academies for students to pursue their academic interests.  As the person who supports the directors of these Academies, I have observed the power that a quality high school internship can have on a student’s future.  Our Academy students complete 50-90 hour internships to learn more about themselves and even more about the world in which we live.
