A Message from the CEO
SCHOOL CANCELLED FRIDAY MARCH 13, 2020
Update from March 12th, 5:00 PM
Dear Faith Family,
As promised, we are providing updates to you as they develop. We meet and discuss daily and continue to monitor the insights and opinions of health professionals. Today’s meeting has prompted some changes:
Why are the numbers 186 and 78 of interest to Faith Lutheran students? Because this year high school students have 186 classes from which to choose, and middle school students have 78 classes from which to choose. Each student only gets to choose 8 per year so middle school students get to take 24 of the 78 offered in their careers, and high school students get to take 32 of the 186 in their careers. So many choices, so little time!
Each year the entire Middle School takes one day to go out into the Las Vegas Valley to serve those around them. Advisory classes connected with local non-profits, schools, and businesses. Many of the locations have been re-occurring partnerships that we hope to continue for year to come. Watch a video for highlights from the day and read reflections from the teachers about why serving is something all kids should do!
Mr. Erik Ball is known on campus for his expertise and creativity in the Theater Department as teacher and director for our musicals, but not many know that he worked on a major project this past year. Dream Big: Rudy Ruettiger Live on Broadway premiered as a one-night-only show on February 11, 2019 at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre. The show also featured Faith Lutheran alumni Jessica Ruettiger '16, current student at the Boston Conservatory at Berklee. Mr. Ball wrote and produced the show which can now be viewed on Amazon Prime Video and has recently been nominated for a Special Event Regional EMMY award. Read more for our Q&A with him!
When I was in middle and high school if a kid did something embarrassing during the day we all went home at night and forgot about it. Today, students make a bad decision during the school day and it becomes digital fodder for an infinite amount of people…forever.
