The Faith Lutheran School high school choir director asked students to individually record their assigned parts of "Victimae Paschali Laudes" at home. Students did so, then emailed their recordings to the teacher. Roundey combined the student voices with her own organ playing to create a stunning video that the school shared on Easter Sunday morning via social media. The video is available here: https://youtu.be/9TvLpcTRLLM

Students at Faith Lutheran School haven't been on the school's Plano campus since before Spring Break in mid-March.  But students are enjoying ample opportunities for a variety of enriching learning experiences and fun face-to-face visits with teachers and classmates thanks to some dedicated, innovative teachers and the school's new "Learn From Home" program.

Like schools across the country, Faith Lutheran School's Plano campus is temporarily closed due to COVID-19.  Teachers at the classical, Lutheran school immediately begin planning for alternative learning after learning that students would experience time away from the classroom as a result. Administrators, teachers and staff quickly created the school's new "Learn From Home" program to serve the school's students at all levels - preschool through grade 12. The Learn From Home program combines recorded videos, personalized class work packets, emailed assignments and interactive, live video classes to provide a unique education experience for the school's students.

In addition to traditionally-assigned class work with textbooks, worksheets, research papers and tests, teachers are hosting group and individual video calls with students to stay in touch. Science labs now occur online instead of in the lab, but are supplemented by live videos and online supplemental material. Band and orchestra group classes and individual instrumental music lessons are continuing via live video call. Weekly school chapel services are live-streamed, so that students can worship together through the power of technology.

"Through the combined efforts of faculty, staff and our beloved school families, the Lord has brought about a plan in the midst of trouble that our children might continue in a classical Lutheran education," said Faith Lutheran School Headmaster Rev. Stephen W. Kieser.  "The first week of Learn From Home is under our belt. We’ve learned a lot about ourselves.  Even more, we’ve witnessed that the Lord provides.  He has been our Refuge and Strength. The Lord has saved us.  He has taken care of us.  We have been preserved in Christian faith and made stronger because of our trials."

Faith Lutheran School of Plano today announced that the school has hired its second intern in the school’s classical Lutheran education internship program.

Nathanael Hahn, a senior at Concordia University Wisconsin has been selected as the second participant in the program.

Hahn will intern at Faith Lutheran School for the month of January, observing teachers and administrators and working with educators and staff in a variety of classroom and school-wide activities.

“This classical Lutheran education internship is different from traditional student teaching,” explained Faith Lutheran School of Plano Headmaster Rev. Stephen W. Kieser of Wylie.  “Mr. Hahn will have the unique opportunity to experience and observe not only day-to-day teacher activities and routines, but also school administrator duties and responsibilities. He will also prepare and teach no less than two lessons under the supervision of a mentor.”

Classical Lutheran education internships are designed to be about four weeks long, rather than the typical 10 weeks or full semester time frame that is typical of student teaching. Interested students may complete multiple internships at various campuses throughout their education as part of this program.

“This idea is very new,” said Kieser.  “Concordia University Wisconsin (CUW) has had several students complete similar internships.  Faith Lutheran School of Plano’s participation is a flagship opportunity for Mr. Hahn….the second internship in this program to be completed away from the CUW campus. We are proud to participate in such a program that furthers the experiences of our future classical Lutheran educators.”

Faith Lutheran School hosted its first Classical Lutheran Education intern in August 2019.
