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.
