NHS/Student Council Students Attend Conference

Members from the Lake Park Audubon National Honor Society and Student Council attended the MAHS/MASC Leadership Forum on Sunday-Monday, November 4-5 at Cragun’s Resort in Brainerd, Minnesota. Faculty advisers Cheryl Hogie and Jamie Nelson attended the Advisor session that was facilitated at the same time.  The students were able to hear guest speaker Kyle Willkom who just recently moved to Minnesota from Nashville, Tennessee. Willkom uses music to help facilitate his message and is a professional speaker, leadership consultant, and music author who speaks at schools, conferences, and events nationally. He is the author of the “Wake Up Call,” and “The Thinking Dilemma” - trainings and curriculum that help guide high school students avoid distractions and build an intentional life of purpose. He focuses on leadership elements of networking and mindfulness.

Meanwhile, the advisers attended a training facilitated Doug Erickson, the Executive Director of Minnesota Honor Societies.  Doug shared a training he had recently attended on the “Legal Issues for Advisers.”  In addition, Kyle Willkom did a training session on networking and helping advisers facilitate discussions on programs and projects that work well in their respective schools.

Both student leaders and advisers were able to learn more about Internet Safety and Social Media Influences from Detroit Lakes speaker, Kent Molberg. Finally, MAHS State Advisers Karrie Fredrickson and Jerome Johannes led the advisers in a question and answer session.

LPA students attending the Fall Leadership Forum include Etta Miosek, Shadasia Stalberger, Haidyn Peterson, Hailey Frohman, and Paul DeBlieck.  The students and their advisers had an energizing training and look forward to implementing some of the activities and ideas into their student-lead programs and projects.


The “Skinny” on Healthy Cookie Creations

“Reduce your sugar, increase your fiber, eliminate the fat,” are all common phrases heard from dietary educators working in today’s nutrition arena.   Advanced Standing and Placement Nutrition students at LPA are learning that there is a direct link between diet and health through modifying foods they already eat.  Good eating habits involve knowing how to prepare and select foods that fit into the Dietary Guidelines provided by the USRDA.  What better way to demonstrate and learn that how dietary goals can be accomplished through some minor recipe changes.

Using curriculum provided from the NDSU Extension Service, students modified a traditional chocolate chip cookie recipe in five different manners.  Cookies were lowered in fat, increased in fiber, cholesterol free, gluten free, or lowered in sugar content.  Students learn that establishing a goal, such as lowering sugar content, is the first step.  Next, students calculate appropriate recipe substitutions, since all ingredients serve a “purpose” in the final result.  For example, applesauce can serve as a substitution for either fat or sugar in a baked product, as long you reduce in proportion to the other quantities.  However, the cookies will not be as crisp, nor will they brown as dark since the properties of sugar are altered.  Students were able to sample and complete a written critique of each version. “Learning through technical skills helps students experience the concepts we are discussing in a more meaningful way,” stated FCS Instructor Cheryl Hogie.  Although the cookies were “identified” by the ingredient changes, most students agreed they could not tell the difference between the non-modified cookie and some of the modified cookie versions.  “While some of them looked a little different, I thought they all tasted pretty good,” stated class member Justin How.

Members of the Lake Park Audubon National Honor Society will be collecting “Treats for Troops” once again this year; however, the change in how they approached their goal last year will remain the same.  Historically,  students have gone door-to-door, asking for “Treats for Troops,” and have had a resounding positive response.  That response resulted in over 80 pounds, of mostly candy, being sent to active troop members in the past several years.  While the “treats” are greatly appreciated, the commanding officers may not  have seen it as a part of a healthy diet and regime for their troops.  Thus, the request for healthier “treats” will be implemented once again this year.  Some of the recommended treats that will be accepted include: “packaged coffee, jerky, pretzels, snack crackers, trail mix, and hunting/fishing/sports magazines.”  Liquids cannot be shipped abroad to the troops and will not be accepted.

The LPA NHS will accept donations of the healthier options at the LPA High School or will collect them upon request up through Monday, November 5th.  The Lake Park Legion has once again agreed to help with the shipment of the items. Aaron Christensen, former LPA student (2007) is a current chaplain in the military and is connected to a Minnesota unit in Kuwait that would receive the treats.     If you have items to donate or an enlisted service member from the LPA area that you would like to recognize, please contact the LPA NHS adviser, Cheryl Hogie at chogie@lpa.k12.mn.us or school phone 218-325-0754.

Naturalization Ceremony

We attended the ceremony again this year at MSUM.

41 LPA students watched 103 individuals from 34 different countries become citizens.

In today's society it is so vital that students see these people become Americans. They are all very proud to become part of our country and that students get an up close and personal view of this is amazing!

The 8th graders at LPA are starting off the year with some STEAM! They are already in the middle of their second collaborative problem-based learning project. Students in Mr. Wixo and Mrs. Watland's classes teamed up to design and build a tower out of tape and spaghetti noodles. The goal was to build the highest tower that could successfully hold a marshmallow on the top. Students needed to use critical thinking and problem-solving skills, as well as creativity, innovation, and collaboration. The 8th graders are currently in the middle of another design challenge, building catapults. This project helps students to better understand the engineering design and scientific inquiry processes while stressing the importance of teamwork! The catapults will have to hold up to five different challenges.
