CLUBS & ACTIVITIES

 

At Milwaukee Lutheran, extracurricular activities are an integral aspect of school life because they are a means of developing knowledge, positive attitudes, sportsmanship, and effective human relation skills. 

Over 60% 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.

Art Club

The Art Club provides a safe and fun environment 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.  Contact Mr. Crayton & Mrs. Tennies for more information.

Business Club

The Business Club is an extension of the Free Enterprise Academy where students meet leaders in the community and learn about how to improve their financial standing for themselves and their communities.  Check out the Free Enterprise Academy here.  

Coffee Shop

The Red Knight Coffee Shop is a great way to sneak in your morning coffee and learn how to run a small business.  Join other coffee lovers or students interested in business.   Please reach out to Mr. Lasley for more information.

Comic Book Club

At Comic Book Club, join others in your enjoyment of reading and creating comics.  Please contact Mr. Dahlke for more information.

Engineering Club
Engineering club provides a way for any MLHS student to show and enhance their God-given creative, mechanical, and relational genius through challenging contests and projects. Membership in the club is open to all grades (9-12) and meetings are held about every two weeks (after school).  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. 
Forensics

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 Ms. Ihm to learn more. 

Family Groups

Having a successful high school experience is one of our highest priorities at MLHS. To that end, all Red Knights take part in Family Groups. Students are divided into groups (~15 students each) and meet weekly with an upper class student who serves as their leader and an advisory teacher.  Student leaders and advisors lead discussions on topics to build relationships with one another as Christ's big family.  Families are able to discuss unique topics and ask questions about life or student culture.  Families hold each other accountable and push each other to succeed.  Click here for a brochure.  Please contact Mrs. Tennies for more information.

Gaming Club

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.
