Fresh air, wide open spaces, and a day away from school to enjoy it all...who could ask for more? 
 
For Lakehill's Middle School students, it just doesn't get much better than Fall Day Out. 
 
The fall weather provided the perfect backdrop for the 150 students who headed to the Roger L. Perry campus on October 31, to enjoy a full day of play.
 
Students started their day with kickball games, followed by a giant game of capture the flag on the baseball field. Many students and teachers enjoyed fishing at the lake with Daniel Bracken helping in the catch and release. Others challenged themselves and others with hamster ball races and inflatable games while some preferred board games or hopscotch. Bradley Neyland and Jimmy LaBrie fired up the grills to cook hot dogs and hamburgers to satisfy the appetites of the now hungry middle schoolers.
 
Seventh grader Jack Widhalm most enjoyed fishing in the pond. Unfortunately, his nearly two-foot-long catfish went undocumented, breaking the rod and swimming away before it could be photographed.
 
While the students clearly enjoyed a day off from school, Fall Day Out seems much more about the "out" - having fun with friends in the great outdoors. It is no wonder that this special day for Lakehill's Middle School students continues to be a fall favorite.

About Lakehill Preparatory School

At Lakehill Preparatory School, we know that bigger is not always better. Lakehill is -- and always has been -- small by design.

Our school combines a strong, engaging academic program with a kind and inclusive community. A small student body offers a greater opportunity for each student to experience academic and leadership growth. Students develop a strong sense of belonging, and pride in their community, their school, and themselves. 

Community spirit is encouraged in our small school environment. Strong relationships develop between home and school, and school leaders are far more involved with individual students than in a larger school setting. Lakehill staff pride themselves on knowing every child by name.

Lakehill builds an atmosphere of respect, accountability, collaboration, and mentoring between students and teachers, and provides the resources and learning opportunities that empower students to be architects of their own education.

The Lakehill Middle School Volleyball team played Zion Lutheran in the IAA Championship game on October 23. It was an intense and close game, going all the way to a tie-breaking third game. The hard work these girls put in this season paid off with the Lakehill team becoming the 2018 IAA Champions.
 
"The team put everything they learned on that court and fought for the championship every step of the way," said coach Alisyn Schreiber. "Each team member played an integral part in this season's championship."
 
Congratulations to the Middle School Lady Warriors on an amazing season.

Lakehill recently held its the third annual Volunteer Fair in the school's Lydia and James Perry Community Room and the Student Commons. Students were able to meet with 15 different charitable organizations, learning more about their missions and the volunteer opportunities available.
 
Participants were Bonton Farms, Catholic Charities/The Brady Center, C.C. Young, Community Partners of Dallas, Crossroads Community Services, Dallas Children's Advocacy Center, Feed My Starving Children, Hunger Busters, Jewish Family Service, Jubilee Park and Community Center, Meals on Wheels, Reading Partners, Voice of Hope, and the Wilkinson Center.
 
The Fair gave seventh graders through high school seniors an opportunity to broaden their volunteer horizons and find new ways to give back to their Dallas community. As one of those students, I appreciated the chance to network and communicate with a wide variety of volunteer partnerships and explore many new avenues for service.
 
Together, Lakehill students give more than 15,000 hours of volunteer service to their community.

The Lakehill Upper School biology classes traveled to Galveston Island on October 4-7, to dive a little deeper into their studies. 
 
While in Galveston, students had the chance to explore a salt marsh to collect comb jellies, a sting ray, and a variety of small fishes, shrimp, crabs, and mollusks by dragging a long seine through the waist-deep water. Using trowels and a suction pump, they found mole crabs, brittle stars, and ghost shrimp in the inter-tidal zone of the beach at Galveston Island State Park. They also collected squid, lizard fish, and other specimens with a trawl net in the deeper water of the Houston Shipping Channel. 
 
Students toured many of the smaller channels of the estuary in kayaks, allowing them to get a closer look at this important ecosystem. Here, they learned how some egrets use their wings to create shadows on the water to help herd schools of fish into shallower water, making it easier to snatch their prey.
 
This year, sponsor Jeremy Holman added a shark dissection and lecture to the trip, allowing students to learn first-hand about the physiology and behavior of sharks.
 
The class also visited the Houston Museum of Natural Science containing one of the best paleontology halls in the world, and spent time at Brazos Bend State Park where they observed alligators in their natural environment. They toured the George Observatory, where they performed a space station simulation to land on Earth's moon and Mars, and viewed the rings of Saturn, the bands on Jupiter, and a quadruple star system through the lens of a telescope. On the last day, they visited the aquarium on the Kemah Boardwalk where they touched and fed dozens of stingrays and a guitarfish.
 
"I loved learning more about the ecosystems from hands-on experience," said junior Stella Palmer. "The shark dissection was amazing, and helped us learn more about the anatomy of a marine animal." Junior Zoe Herrman enjoyed kayaking in the estuary. "The scenery was beautiful and I really enjoyed working together with my classmates as a team."

Lakehill's sixth grade class has taken on Lakehill's Meals on Wheels route for the 2018-19 school year. Groups of two or three students deliver meals on the first, third, and fifth Wednesday of each month. The group delivered their first meals on September 3, and will continue the project through May.
 
The experience is already making an impact. "I really liked seeing how happy they were when someone new was there to say 'hi' and bring them lunch," said sixth grader Harper Kuhn. "It was a fun way to do something good and help people with friends from my class," agreed Esther Neerman.
 
This is Lakehill's seventh year to participate in the Meals on Wheels program.
