SECRET-SAVIOR OR SENSATIONAL SAVIOR?
This year a group of students was planning a secret-Santa gift exchange. Students would exchange names and keep quiet, while giving clues to the person whose name they chose. After the third small gift exchange the name of the secret-Santa would be revealed. One could only imagine what would have happened if God kept the greatest gift of all, his son a secret. Proudly and loudly the angels proclaimed the message of Christ’s birth. Mary and Joseph were each informed about the blessed gift, the Christ child. Even shepherds and wise men were informed of the Savior’s birth first by angels and later by a star in the East. The promise given so long ago to Abraham, “and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you ” finally was fulfilled. The Old Testament prophecies which did not attempt to hide, but rather revealed Christ had come to fruition. What will we do with the message of the Christ child? Is it our intention to hide him in mere gift wrap, ornamental fervor or traditional holiday parties? Where do you expose your faith and the message of Christ’s saving work? Is it only during convenient worship times or private meditations? Or do you take that secret-Savior out of hiding and make him a spectacular Savior in speaking to friends about his awe inspiring mission to save the world. Our job is to reveal a sensational Savior who needs no worldly hype or human exaggerations. The real message of Christ’s work speaks volumes in one word, salvation. This Christmas make sure you exchange the one gift that makes a difference, the one gift that shouldn’t be wrapped or concealed. There He is lying in a manger for you and for me!
Please consider this information about potential snow days: ? Closings are called in to FOX6 News, WTMJ 4, WTMJ 620 AM, WTKM 1540, and WBKV. ? We will close if the West Bend Schools close. ? Parents must make the final determination if their student is to drive to school on a day when it is snowing and school is in session. ? Students are not to call home during the day requesting permission to leave early because of weather—parents should call with that request. ? Parents, please don’t call school inquiring if school has been called off during the day-listen to the announcements via the media. Our phones can really get tied up! ? Please talk with your young drivers about careful driving in winter. ? Please direct them to clean off their windows and headlights. Be sure they have adequate tires on their cars. In conclusion, deciding when and if to close school is not always an easy decision. It is based on numerous factors, and not everyone always agrees with them. We ask for and appreciate your cooperation!
The Lord has led KML superintendent, Mr. Bartelt, to decline the divine call to serve as the development director of Arizona Lutheran Academy. We are grateful that the Lord has led him to remain at KMLHS. Kindly keep Mr. Bartelt and all KML faculty and staff members in your prayers!
STUDENTS AFTER SCHOOL
It’s very important that provisions be made for students to leave school as soon after dismissal as possible. Any student not in an activity should be out of the building no later than 3:30 pm daily. Because we are aware that car pools and other transportation arrangements may not make this feasible, parents of students not involved in after-school activities must register the reason for their student to remain later than 3:30 with Dean Hughes or Mr. Bowe. Students in activities are known to the school and will not need to be registered. However, if the schedule for their activity does not have them involved in their activity before 3:30, we request that those who live close to school leave the building shortly after school and return in time for the activity. Students who don’t live close enough for this to be feasible will be assigned to designated rooms in the building. Please provide a way for your student involved in an activity to be picked up immediately after school’s over. We sincerely appreciate your cooperation!

LOADING AND UNLOADING ZONE
All are reminded that the traffic lane closest to the flagpole is a flow through lane meaning that cars should never stop while in that lane. Drivers may stop and wait in the yellow striped area adjacent to the sidewalk. In so doing, please continue to keep your vehicle occupied. Thank you for your cooperation!
NO PARKING ZONE
The driveway leading past the new cafeteria into the back parking lot is a No Parking zone. Parking is not allowed on either side of the driveway. In addition, parking is not allowed in the circle in front of the school. We must continue to keep the driveway and circle clear in the event that emergency vehicles need to have access. To date, the KML family has done a terrific job of parking legally. Your appreciation is gratifying!
“There is Music in the Air” is the theme for this year’s Echo Fest. This is a day of family fun with food, games, musical entertainment, silent and verbal auctions, and more. Please join us on Sunday, February 22, 2004 from 11:30-3:00 for this event. All NHS members are required to work either for children’s games or in the coat check area.

TEEN ISSUES SEMINAR
On Wednesday, January 14 at 7:00 pm KML will host a Teen Issues Seminar. Our guest speaker will be a representative of Aurora Health Care who will speak on the topic of Teenage Alcohol Abuse. In addition, representatives of the KML student council will make a presentation on SADD, Students Against Destructive Decisions. Parents and students are encouraged to attend!
Prior to Christmas, students participated in a penny wars class competition. The class that collects the most will be declared the winner. Any student guessing the total amount or is the closest to guessing the combined amount of all penny jars will receive a gift certificate. All proceeds will be given to Wisconsin Lutheran Institutional Ministries.
LUTHERAN INVITATIONAL TOURNAMENT (LIT)
The 2003 Lutheran Invitational Basketball Tournament was held on December 5 and 6. KML hosted four of the eight first round games. The girls beat Fox Valley Lutheran for their first game and lost in a close game to Onalaska Lutheran in the championship. The boys lost both of their games against the same two opponents in hard fought contests.
Congratulations to the varsity volleyball players for their post season honors: Kristina Martin—Washington Country Player of the Year; 1st Team Washington County, Wisconsin State Coaches Association Honorable Mention; Journal Sentinel All-Area Second Team. Nicole Schulz—1st Team Washington County; All State Honorable Mention; Wisconsin State Coaches Association Honorable Mention. Staycie Greefkes– 1st Team Washington County; Wisconsin State Coaches Association 4th Team. Becky Peters—1st Team Washington County.
The basketball teams are working hard to represent KML well throughout the current seasons. The boys are playing an exciting up-tempo style that provides an entertaining brand of basketball. The girls have a blend of size and speed that make them very competitive. Come and enjoy sports as they were meant to be. There are no commercials, no theatrics, good sportsmanship, great support groups (students, parents, cheerleaders and dance squads), and good food in the concession stand. There is a home game (either boys or girls) on most Tuesdays and Fridays. The WIAA is holding discussions with various conferences to resolve some problems that currently exist in current conference alignment. We are expecting to have more definite details in January or early February on what this means for KML. We are currently pursuing joining the East Central Flyway Conference which includes schools that are similar to us in size and program offerings. The schools that would be our main competition in that conference would be Mayville, Horicon, Lomira, Winnebago Lutheran, St. Mary’s Springs, and North Fond du Lac.

PROSPECTIVE YEARBOOK STAFF
Mrs. Wierschem will be having a introductory meeting with the yearbook staff on Monday, January 12 from 3:004:00pm. All student who are interested in helping with the yearbook should meet in the new computer room (room #1327). Our Jostens representative will also have a workshop meeting with all yearbook staff on Monday, January 26 from 3:00-4:30pm. Yearbook will meet every other Monday during the rest of the school year.
The student council held their 2nd annual student auction December 11th. Student council waited on those coming to place bids with food and drink. Thank you to everyone who helped with and attended the auction. It was a BIG success. We raised $1,268.50. Two thirds of the money will be used to pay off our bleachers and to buy a new chapel podium. The final third will go towards tuition assistance.
WONDERING HOW TO GET THERE?
A “Directions to Schools” booklet containing maps or directions to away contests is available at games or from the athletic office for $1.00.
Snowcoming introduced the basketball season for 2003 and 2004. The cheerleaders and dance squad worked hard to put together a pep rally. Student council organized dress-up days and a black light dance that was held on Saturday evening. Although our preseason basketball teams did not rise to the top in the tournament, there were indicators that with more practice the teams could certainly exploit their talents and have a good year in the Parkland Conference. Good luck to all teams!
We will be holding a consultation day on Monday, February 2. The purpose of this consultation day is to register current students for the 2004-05 school year. You will have the opportunity to meet with your student’s homeroom advisor and discuss the course selections for the upcoming school year. Please make sure that your student accompanies you to this consultation so that he/she can be a part of this very important decision-making process. In order to schedule an appointment for you, please return the appointment request form that is included with this newsletter. Have your student return it to the school office no later than Friday, January 16. We will send home a notice of your appointment on Monday, January 26.
KML has a dozen Entertainment Books yet to be sold, the price is $35 each.
The National Honor Society is sponsoring its first blood drive of this school year on Friday, January 16. The hours for the drive are 8:00-12:00 noon. Please note that this date is a change from the date that was published on the activities calendar. The change had to be made because the Blood Center informed us that they were not able to conduct any blood drives on the date that we had originally chosen. If you want to donate blood, please contact the school office to register.
KML AT THE MILWAUKEE ART MUSEUM!
The Art I class took their semester test on the first day of exams, but it wasn't at Kettle Moraine Lutheran High School. It was at the Milwaukee Art Museum. Students were asked to search for particular paintings and analyze the work using various content they have learned from the Art I course. Their final task was to copy a portrait from one of the masterworks at the museum. The highlight of the test was the recent Calatrava addition to the museum.
Senior parents, we need your help! The yearbook needs the following pictures: Formal Head Shot: Angie Bowe, AshLiegh Brown, Emily Cohoon, Jessica Hadfield, Nick Lederer, Andrew Marzinske, Dustin Melius, Robbie Oestreich, and Briana Schulz. Other optional pictures that would be nice to have, but are not a must: 1) Toddler picture (age 3-5) 2) Favorite Senior pose If you have any questions contact KML and ask for Becky.
88 KEYS TO
THE OLD YEAR NOW HAS PASSED AWAY
The old year now has passed away God has granted great blessings to the Music Department's campaign for a new piano. The new piano was delivered on Wednesday, December 17- it is an incredible instrument. Thank you to everyone who was moved to donate a "key" to make this possible. We will need to buy a cover, dolly, and an adjustable bench in the near future, so if you missed your chance to donate a key, consider making a donation to "cover" the costs of these items. God is so good! (donors should watch for their invitation to the upcoming dedication recital in 2004). We thank you O our God, today That you have kept us through the year When danger and distress were near. We pray you O eternal Son Who with the Father reigns as one To guard and rule your Christendom Through all the ages yet to come. Oh, help us to forsake all sin. A new and holier life begin! Forgive the old year's sins, and bless The new year with true happiness.
