At Milwaukee Lutheran, extracurricular activities are an integral aspect of school life and are a means of developing knowledge, positive attitudes, sportsmanship, and effective human relation skills. Over 75% of MLHS students are involved in at least one extracurricular activity. Extracurricular activities are defined as activities that generally occur after the school day is completed. While these activities require as much time, careful planning, and commitment as academic subjects, the purpose of extracurricular activities is to enhance and extend student learning and experiences beyond the academic courses offered in the school. MLHS offers a variety clubs and activities that appeal to students with a variety of passions.
The Art Club provides a safe and fun envoronment for students to make art with their peers. Students will have opportunities to use their God-given abilities to make artwork of their choice, experiment, learn new art processes such as silk screening, and participate in service projects to benefit others.
Every year the Engineering Club participates in the Rube Goldberg Machine Contest. The objective of a Rube Goldberg machine is to perform a simple task in a complicated way.
If you enjoy competitions, holding argumentative debates, and talking a lot, then consider joining Forensics! No, this is not CSI; instead, you craft a speech to perform in competitions throughout the State whether they are persuasive speeches, poetry slam type pieces, or acting related. It looks great on a resume, really builds your public speaking skills/confidence, and is a great experience! Contact Miss Ihm to learn more at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Having a successful high school experience is one of our highest priorities at MLHS. To that end, all freshmen take part in FROSH (Freshmen Relying on Senior Help) Program. Freshmen are divided into small groups (4-6 students each) and meet weekly with an upper class student who serves as their mentor, explaining what is expected of a student at MLHS and the various activities of high school life. Each mentor works with their freshman group to ensure a smooth transition from elementary school into high school and build a foundation for their success in ensuing years.
Students in the Gaming Club at Milwaukee Lutheran gather weekly to play video games on computers and consoles as well as card and board games. Meetings are after school on Wednesdays until 5:00. See Mr. Heckert for more information and a permission slip to join.
