Sisteens, Broteens, and Volleyball Teams Combine Efforts for Dig Pink
Sisteens, a service organization for Upper School girls, Broteens, a new service organization for Upper School boys, and the Lakehill Volleyball teams combined efforts to raise money for breast cancer research. Members sold t-shirts, bracelets, temporary tattoos, and other spirit items, as well as tasty pink treats, to raise more than $1000 for breast cancer awareness. All proceeds benefit Susan G. Komen. 

The Dig Pink Committee decorated the gym. The volleyball teams and parents wore black t-shirts featuring a pink ribbon to go alongside the pink ones sold by Sisteens. Survivors of breast cancer who were in attendance were recognized and celebrated at the Varsity game.

A representative from Susan G. Komen will visit Lakehill in November to receive the donation and explain how it will aid in their research.

"We had several people who offered donations without buying any merchandise and several who paid above the advertised prices," said Sisteens co-sponsor Tam Badgett. "We thank the school and community for their generosity toward this cause."

Homecoming Spirit
Sisteens and Broteens are selling Homecoming t-shirts for $10. The white t-shirt with a black Warrior head on the back was specifically selected for the traditional black-light Homecoming Pep Rally.

Order forms will be distributed through Upper School class meetings, Lower School Friday folders, and during Middle School English classes on October 12-13. Forms will also be available at the front desk.

Orders must be placed by October 18.
Students Head to Perry Campus for Annual Senior Work Day
While the rest of Upper School was busy with the PSATs, seniors headed to Perry Campus for a work day. They re-stacked the rocks in the brook, planted pansies, and cleared the main trail. 

They also cleaned up trash along the trails and in the woods, including the removal of mattress springs and a rusty gutter. Seniors left their mark on the ESC by personalizing the largest tree they could find in honor of the Class of 2018. When their work was complete, they grilled hamburgers and hot dogs for lunch. 

Extreme Spirit - One More Time
So far this year, Lakehill has won Bubblelife Media's Most Spirited Elementary School contest, and the Most Spirited Middle School contest.

Now the voting is underway in the Most Spirited High School contest, and Lakehill needs your votes--one more time! Voting ends Monday, October 16.

Who's New?
Lakehill Welcomes Hayley Stenger
Hayley Stenger joins the Lakehill faculty this year, teaching Lower and Middle School Spanish. She is also a co-sponsor of PASF.

A Dallas native, Stenger graduated from Ursuline Academy before receiving her Bachelor of Arts in Spanish and Markets and Culture and her Master of Education degrees from Southern Methodist University.

Prior to coming to Lakehill, Stenger taught second grade.

Stenger enjoys spending time with her family, who live in Dallas. Her hobbies include reading, watching movies, traveling, trying new restaurants, and participating in social clubs such as Junior League and Slipper Club of Dallas.

She is passionate about teaching children a new language, life skills, and how to problem solve. "The best part of my job is being able to teach many age groups. Each brings something special to the table!"

Stenger was drawn to education because she loves children and enjoys watching them grow, learn, and become independent. "I hope to instill enthusiasm and a genuine interest in learning the Spanish language."

She is looking forward to building friendships with her colleagues and forming lasting bonds with her students. "The Lakehill community is so welcoming and accepting."

Varsity and JV Volleyball
The Lakehill Varsity Volleyball team clinched a playoff spot with a win over Yavneh on October 10 in the annual Dig Pink game. This marks the eighth straight year that the team has qualified for the TAPPS State Playoffs.

The team did not disappoint and won in straight sets. Maddie Cerda led the team with 12 kills and seven aces. The girls will travel to Dallas Covenant to continue district play on October 12. JV plays at 4:30 p.m. and Varsity at 5:30 p.m. With a win, the team secures the third seed in the district.

The team will host two home games next week. On Tuesday, they take on district-leading Heritage Christian and on Wednesday, senior captain Lovely Lopez and statistician Reese Brown will be honored before the Varsity game against Cristo Rey. This will be the last home game for the girls. JV plays at 6:30 p.m. and Varsity at 7:30 p.m. Come out and support the girls as they wrap up another successful district season!
