Your quiet time, your prayer time, the time you spend in the Word,

is absolutely essential for a happy Christian life.

callCall Process



As a reminder whether you are Calling for a teacher or if your school is Calling for an administrator, out of courtesy and respect, please communicate to the candidates who had taken time to interview with you, yet didn't receive the Call for the position, to let them know you have decided to "go in a different direction."  Or, that they are no longer being considered. Many times these individuals are unaware of the process, or had forgotten it, and are left wondering. 


Thanks for your attention to this matter.

Opportunity to support a Racine Lutheran High School Athlete

It is with great pride that I announce that one of Racine Lutheran High School's seniors Emily Hlavacek has been selected to play on the Division 4 South All Star Team in the annual Wisconsin Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) All Star Game. This is quite an achievement as Emily was selected to the team from all the players in our school's state athletic division in order to participate in this State All-Star basketball game. The game will be played at the Just-A-Game Fieldhouse in Wisconsin Dells on Friday, June 19.


The main function of the WBCA games is to raise money for the MACC (Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer) Fund, and all proceeds go directly to this fund. Each athlete is asked to secure sponsors.  All the players involved in this event need to raise $500 in order to participate. I am hoping that you might help Emily by contributing as a "sponsor" for this event. 


Information on how you can be a "sponsor" and support Emily.
