Chisago Lakes Baptist High School had their annual Christmas Concert on December 15th. Under the direction of Chris Young the high school band and choir performed holiday favorites to the delight of the audience. After the concert there was pie and coffee in the gym. Of course an offering was taken for the teachers' Christmas bonus, and this year the gifts were generous. Chris Young also pushed candy-grams, and at 50 cents apiece, they are a bargain and a great way to support the band tour in the Spring. The day before the concert the choir and band played at two nursing homes in the Lakes Area. The CLBS band and choir are an integral part of the education experience for our students.

CHISAGO LAKES BAPTIST SCHOOL— The American Association of Christian Schools has announced that Riley Keck of Forest Lake, the son of Kraig and Laura Keck, has been granted a scholarship to attend the annual AACS Youth Legislative Training Conference in Washington D.C. to be held July 11-15.

Riley, a rising junior at Chisago Lakes Baptist School, is part of a select group of 40 students chosen from AACS member schools nationwide to attend this conference where he will be provided the valuable opportunity to learn the inner workings of our political system.

Riley is president of the junior class at CLBS, on the student council, and plays on the boys varsity soccer and basketball teams. He is an active member of Chisago Lakes Baptist Church, playing in the orchestra, serving in children’s ministries, and is involved in the youth group (recently returning from a service trip to Camp Eden in Golden, CO).

More than just a series of lectures on political theory and philosophy, this conference gives the students an opportunity to receive a Congressional briefing, participate in a mock senate, meet Senators and Congressmen, and tour historical sites in Washington, D.C., including the U. S. Capitol, the Monuments, the Pentagon and Arlington Cemetery. In addition, the students will hear the Marine Band and lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

One of the oldest national voices for Christian education, AACS is celebrating its 43rd anniversary as one of the leading Christian school organizations in the country.

CHISAGO LAKES BAPTIST SCHOOL--Competing in the Minnesota Association of Christian Schools tournament last weekend (Feb 25-27) the CLBS Patriots completed their second consecutive run through the state tournament by winning the championship game over Fourth Baptist Christian School of Plymouth, MN. Coming in as the first seed, CLBS defeated Woodcrest Christian Academy on Thursday and the powerhouse Lake Region Hornets on Friday to set up their second straight appearance in the championship game. This year's game ended with the same result--the Patriots are state champs again. One of the smallest schools in MACS, the Patriots are a David-vs-Goliath story. Since the tournament is held in Plymouth, Fourth Baptist had a home crowd advantage, but the Patriots played well and won with a score of 49-37. Senior Luke Hraba was named to the All-Tournament Team and Junior Pete Mayerchak was the MVP of the tournament.
