Lutheran High School began a new chapter in its history on Thursday, June 14, with a formal groundbreaking ceremony for additional classrooms and a new gymnasium. The 27,970 square-foot addition will include an additional science lab, music and STEM classrooms; a larger gym; lobby, locker rooms, bathrooms and a concession stand.
Much of the construction work has now moved to the interior of the building as the crew works to seal the structure, connect utilities, and get the building “in the dry.” Work continues to progress on schedule, and completion is still on target for this spring!
We have currently received over $2.8 million in gifts and pledges to achieve the “Celebration” goal of the Reach Campaign, and we now continue our efforts towards the $4 million “Challenge” goal and ultimately the $6 million “Victory” goal of the campaign.

Students can sign up on the Key Club bulletin board outside room 102 to participate.
