Meet the Teacher Night
Did You Know?
Students admitted to Luther College are not required to be Lutheran or Christian. By welcoming students of all faiths and religious backgrounds, Luther College enjoys a richly diverse student body.
In the late 1920's, during an in-house baseball tournament, Rex Schneider entered a team called "Prof Schneider's Battling Lions." This is the first hint that someday Luther teams would be known as the Lions.
The first LIT was held on January 31, 1953. That year it was a one-day tournament involving sixteen teams from Southern Saskatchewan. All preliminary games were played cross court, two games at a time.
Luther graduates have gone on to universities such as Harvard, Oxford, Pennsylvania State, McGill, Queen’s and other renowned educational institutions throughout Canada, North America and the world.
Did you know there is a 3rd floor to the boy's dorm? It was traditionally assigned to upper level students who were more mature & responsible. Students who lived up there in the 1940’s confessed, in hushed tones, to having a radio when those devices were against school policy.
The choral tradition at Luther began in 1914. In addition to in-school performances, the choir has shared its ministry of music with many congregations across Canada and has performed regularly on local and national radio and television shows, at contests and festivals.
The gym officially opened July 8, 1951. The Sunday afternoon celebration, attended by 1,500 people, featured speeches followed by an evening celebration with another 1,500 people in attendance to hear the Luther Choir and the RCMP Band.
Do you know someone in Kindergarten to Grade 8 that would like to be part of the Luther Family? Encourage them to join the Future Luther Student program!
Meet the Teacher Night
We invite you to come meet the teachers on Wednesday, September 27, 2017 from 7-9 pm.
The Meet the Teacher evening is a time for you to follow your student’s daily timetable and briefly experience the courses of study being offered at Luther and to meet the teachers you have heard your student discuss since school started.
To prepare, please bring a copy of your student’s schedule with you. If you have more than one student at the school, you have a choice of which schedule to follow, or you could build your own by combining the schedules. Please park in the west parking lot, access off Dewdney Avenue and enter the school through our new west entrance. Student hosts will be available to help you find your first class. Classes begin promptly at 7:00 pm. Each period will be ten (10) minutes in length and a bell will ring to begin and end each period. There will be four (4) minutes between periods to move to the next class.
During a spare and lunch, you are invited to stop by the Student Commons for light refreshments. We will gather for a short Chapel service in the Merlis Belsher Heritage Centre during period 4. During your lunch break (period 6 or 7) we invite you back to the Commons where we will be introducing the Parent Council and telling you about an exciting fundraising event the parents are planning for January. We will also be selling tickets to the high school production of Cinderella. The Lion’s Den will be open to purchase your Luther College spirit gear!
