“Laker Leaders” are LMC students who are living the LMC mission statement: “Nourishing the human spirit ~ mind, body and soul ~ through Jesus Christ.”  Parents, you should be proud of the caring children you’ve raised!

Not part of the LMC family?  If you’d like your children to learn in a caring, Catholic environment with peers like the students listed below, visit our Admissions page.

Congratulations to LMC 5th grader CHLOE KIBLER, who won 2nd place in the STATE Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) American History Essay Contest!  Chloe qualified for state competition by writing the winning essay for the local Algonquin Chapter of the DAR.  This year’s essay topic was “A Colonial Family’s Reaction to the Stamp Act”.

Each year, a topic is selected for the DAR Contest which is open to students in grades 5 through 8 who attend public, private, and parochial schools, and home-study programs.  The contest was established to encourage young people to thing creatively about our nations history.  Essays are judged for historical accuracy, topic relation, organization, interest, originality, spelling, grammar, punctuation, and neatness.  Participants receive certificates from the chapter and winners receive bronze medals.

Congratulations Chloe!  LMC is proud of this Laker Leader.

Sophomores: Logan Meyers and Maya Insidioso-Tucker

for taking the initiative and assisting during the Band Lasagna Dinner. These two students showed leadership in that they were the only two who showed up to assist in the set-up of the dinner. They were not discouraged as their classmates were all committed to sports activities and weren’t able to join until later.  While still being able to help, Maya and Logan were able to get ready to perform in the band themselves.

5th grade student Jayce Franklin exhibited leadership when he was asked to let a prospective student shadow him for the day. Jayce did his best to make the new student feel comfortable and welcome.  Thank you Jayce for being a great ambassador for LMC!

Thank you to the entire high school for raking 49 lawns on Monday, November 2nd.  You are all Laker Leaders in my book!

Mr. B.



Congratulations to these Laker Leaders (Varsity Soccer Team) for helping pick apples last weekend for the annual sale.  Great job!

Thank you to Chloe Simmons for helping Mrs. Schemenauer (broken foot) each morning by carrying her bag upstairs to her classroom.  Great job Chloe!

Katie Sullivan and Lauren Osborn are Laker Leaders for their role in the Women’s Service League and their effort to collect coats for the poor.  Way to go ladies!

Sarah McCoy and Hannah Christensen put together welcome cards for the incoming 6th grade, 9th grade, and new students.  They came in on the Saturday before school started and hung them on their lockers.

Tommy Koenig and Logan Myers noticed a student sitting by himself at lunch and invited him to sit at their table.

Sarah McCoy and Hannah Christensen also volunteered to take care of all the music for the High School Band – Mr. Jarvie reports that the Band area has never looked so good!

Random act of kindness…Tyler Deuel and Emmy Koenig reached out to a new Laker recently to make sure they were making the adjustment to their new school!  Great job guys!

 Tommy Koenig today was walking down the hallway today with Charles Hudson-Smith just having a nice conversation with him and as Tommy went into Spanish just said to Charles to have a really good day. The smile on Charles face was priceless:)…It was a small and simple act but sometimes those are the most meaningful:)

Mr. Adams Writes:

I would like to acknowledge Lizzie Stolte, Grant Defrancesco, Ryan Tidey, and Matthew Tan for building the MS School Robot, and installing all of the software necessary to program the robot.

They are in high school, and willingly mentoring the MS team, and they have spent time sharing their knowledge and experience, so the MS team could benefit.

I was very impressed with their willingness to help, as well as their knowledge of programming and engineering.
