A Message from Mrs. Gochenour, 7-12 Principal

Inserted Image

Welcome back! I hope you are having a wonderful summer! It gives me great pleasure to welcome everyone back for another great year at LoMa. We are all excited to have students back in our hallways and classrooms, filling them with energy and enthusiasm for learning. It is our mission to help every child, every day feel welcomed, connected, and a part of our LoMa family. At LoMa, we have great teachers who spend hours planning and creating learning experiences to engage our students. We believe that all students should graduate from high school prepared for the demands of postsecondary education, meaningful careers and effective citizenship. This means that when students graduate from LoMa, they will be able to:

  • ➔  Relate to and work with a variety of individuals,

  • ➔  Work with and manipulate a variety of technologies,

  • ➔  Demonstrate, understand, and appreciate global cultures, as well as their own native culture,

  • ➔  Move into the next phase of post-secondary training/education,

  • ➔  Demonstrate the ability to effectively communicate with others visually, verbally,or by writing,

  • ➔  Solve problems effectively and think critically,

  • ➔  Appreciate the need to become a part of a community of life-long learners,

  • ➔  Showconfidenceinselfandprideintheirroleofresponsibilitytothecommunity,

  • ➔  Appreciate the importance of a substance free and healthy lifestyle.

    Thursday, August 19, is the District open house night. We have a few new faces in secondary school. Mr. Ben Kill is our new special education teacher, Mr. Jake Krueger is our new Industrial Technology teacher, and Ms. Morgan Estergaard is our new Family and Consumer Science teacher. Each of the new teachers are excited to meet their students and become a part of our community. Beginning at 6:30 we will hold the 7th grade orientation in the auditorium for parents and students. In May the 7th grade students engaged in a full orientation to Jr. High, where they moved around the classrooms and met their new teachers. This parent/student orientation is an information-based format to help you understand what to expect as your child moves up to secondary school. We will discuss the opportunities your child will have as a 7th grade student, from academic to extracurricular, as well as the academic and extracurricular expectations.

    Our daily schedule has been adjusted to accommodate the sharing of Career and Technical Education courses with Missouri Valley and West Harrison. I have included a copy of our new schedule in the News Letter.

    I am very excited for the school year to get started. If you have questions, please contact the High School office at 712-644-2250, or email me at cgochenour@lomaschools.org. I hope you all enjoy the last part of the summer! See you soon!

Hello, I am Christi Gochenour, the Jr./Sr. High School Principal. My husband, Rich, and I have three children and have lived in this area our entire life. I graduated from Lo-Ma in 1988. I earned my Bachelor's in Education from University of Nebraska-Omaha and my Master's in Educational Leadership from Northwest Missouri State University.

I have been the 7-12 Principal at Lo-Ma since 2010. I have worked in education for 17 years. My education career started at Alpha School in Omaha for 2 years. I then taught middle school at Missouri Valley Schools for 10 years, spent 1 year at Blair Community Schools as a TAG Coordinator, and then 2 years at Green Hills Area Education Agency as a Professional Development/School Improvement Coordinator before coming back home to Lo-Ma.
