Lakehill Preparatory School students are involved in Community Service from Kindergarten through Grade 12. Through community outreach, Lakehill teaches students to embrace a spirit of volunteerism in the hopes of fostering a life-long passion for service.
Throughout the school year, Lower School students are involved in many of Lakehill’s community service projects. Through pizza sales for tornado victims, book drives for local schools, bake sales for a multitude of causes, and a variety of hands-on projects, students are encouraged at every grade to give back to our community. Other initiatives include organizing activities at local nursing homes, preparing sandwiches for the homeless, delivering Meals on Wheels, as well as organizing canned food and toy drives and writing letters to soldiers overseas or their families at home.
As a UNICEF Ambassador School, Lakehill students learn about the global community. Through their participation in the annual “Trick or Treat” drive for UNICEF, Lakehill students touch the world with their annual contributions.
Lower School students are actively involved in Lakehill’s Recycling Program and in the Adopt-A-Shoreline program at White Rock Lake, volunteering monthly to preserve this neighborhood treasure. These programs educate our students about the world’s natural resources and the benefits of using them in a sustainable manner.
Lower School students in grades 1-4 are invited to participate in Lakehill’s Community Connections Club. The club meets monthly to work on a variety of Community Service Projects. Additionally, all Lakehill students are invited to monthly family service projects.
