Fundraiser details

December 23, 2021
By LPA staff

As a reminder of the opportunity, here is a brief recap from the families meeting on Dec. 20, 2021.

·       Since March, the goal has been to acquire and renovate the former YMCA and then Cotton Hall event center across the street.

·       Praise God, those properties have already been purchased and rezoned for Lake Pointe purposes.  

·       Renovation for academy uses and government codes for school, activities, and athletics more than double the property costs.

·        $800,000 was the spring fundraising challenge set by the board for families to help to raise a portion of the overall cost.

·       $270,000 was raised through November. Earlier this month, after comparing construction costs with the amount left to raise, the board reached out to families and faculty to share how essential completing the original $800,000 fundraising goal is to finishing the campus. 

·       Rather than to overly-leverage the properties in too large of a mortgage, the board is likely to cut out sizeable parts of the renovations, and to be content with what can be accomplished now. This would certainly reduce usable space and growth potential on the second story in the YMCA, as well as improvements in the Cotton Hall.

·       The $530,000 year-end push to complete the $800,000 goal for families will not cover the cost for renovation. It is a share of the overall cost, that will also be offset with profits from the sale of the existing campus and a conservative mortgage on new campus properties.

The Details    From the families meeting

The need

    We discussed in April the need to raise $800,000. 

    To date, we have raised $270,000. 

    Without raising a minimum of this additional $530,000, we have to make significant changes to the project which will ultimately add more cost for engineering, re-design and the future build out costs.

    That amount of money is necessary to fully renovate and expand the usable space in the former YMCA, especially upstairs.

 

The plan

Any funds or commitments received by end of this month will help the board with tough financial decisions. Either we receive additional funding to hold to the renovation plan or else prudence dictates that the board cut areas to stay within our means, and to be content with that. To be clear, the areas to be trimmed are those that we cannot simply come back in a year or two to add. For example, one important area is structural support for an expanded second level for space needs in the near future.

 

The deadline

The donation deadline is 5:00 p.m. Wednesday, December 29, 2021.

 

The families’ plan

After the presentation, some of the parents realized the urgency, the opportunity, and the benefits, and they quickly discussed how we can break down this need into manageable commitments.  We are asking that each family consider what they can commit to, whether it is a tax-deductible donation before end-of-year 2021, or a three-year commitment of monthly or quarterly donations.

 

The Breakdown

 Last night, family representatives suggested the following to accomplish the goal of more fully building-out the former YMCA

 

120 Families giving $4,417 each, in one lump-sum check, yields $530,000 before end of year to move forward with the campus plan as designed.

OR

In lieu of a single one-time gift, a commitment of $122.70 monthly or $368.08 four times per year for three years accomplishes similar results. These would need to be firm commitments, not just “if the money becomes available.”

Of course, any donations and all commitment forms are helpful and appreciated, and all donations to the campus fund are tax-deductible, since LPA is a 501(c)3 ministry.

We understand that some families may be able to commit much more than what is shown below, while others cannot even commit to these numbers. 

 

The Action Step

We ask that each of you pray as a family and reach out directly to Louis Lemmon or Karen Applegate prior to end-of-year, via email, to advise of your commitment (check or three year commitment). Encourage extended family members or others who you believe would want to support LPA's ministry to do the same.

Secondary students and Elementary students will meet outside to pack and pray over Christmas bags going to Guatemala. We are asking for specific items to be donated in the weeks leading up to our packing day. (Our goal is to fill and ship 130 bags.  However, last year we were able to fill around 180, and with additional bags from a church, we sent out 211!)

-$5 to ship each bag. ( if you would also like a child to receive a new pair of shoes, a $20 donation will cover both shipping and shoes). (130 bags x $5 shipping is $650, so anything over $650 allows us to give these children shoes.) 

Checks can be made out to Clubhouse Ministries.

About Christmas in Guatemala :

Two groups of LPA students from two different organizations went on mission trips to Guatemala several summers ago. When there, our students personally witnessed how great the needs were for the children in Guatemala. As a result, for the last four years the Student Service Council has hosted a service project alongside the Clubhouse Guatemala/Clubhouse Ministries organization called “Christmas in Guatemala.” This project enables families at Lake Pointe to partner with other churches and organizations and provide Christmas to children in need in Guatemala.

 

According to the ministry's web site, www.clubhouseg.com

Clubhouse Guatemala was founded with the idea that everyone is created equal in the eyes of God. They choose to share the love of Christ through serving others and helping them to grow in their faith to increase the Harvest of God’s Kingdom. Clubhouse Guatemala is currently serving families in 22 different communities of Guatemala. They have:

• Student Development Centers in 8 communities, working with over 1000 kids and their families on a weekly basis

• Child Sponsorship Program which paves the way for hundreds of personal relationships between US families and Guatemalan families

• Church partners from all over the United States who spend time at the Clubhouse Mission House in Guatemala City and Camp Calvary

 

Today, Clubhouse is making a huge impact in thousands of lives with ministries such as VBS, Block Parties, Medical Clinics, Home Construction, Water Filter Systems, Chicken Coops, and many other ways.

 

Clubhouse is a registered Non-Profit in Guatemala and in the United States for the purpose of partnering with Christ-centered companies and individuals to help with the ongoing ministry of Guatemala. 

Our goal is to love people into a true relationship with Jesus Christ.

Family night at the Drive-in

Where
Hound’s Drive-In Theater
(114 Raven Cir, Kings Mountain, NC 28086.

 

How

Please RSVP.
You can come if you do not RSVP but it would be helpful to us to know family vehicle counts for planning. Mr. Miller's June 04 email has the link to respond.

 

Drive in movie FAQ

 

Is there an entrance cost?

No. There is no fee to get in.

Lake Pointe has rented the facility for this private event, so the normal $20 charge per vehicle does not apply.

 

May families bring multiple vehicles?

This question was in relation to a father meeting his family at the drive-in, coming from work.

Yes, a family may bring multiple vehicles. Since there is no gate charge, this is a good idea. We would ask that the second vehicle be parked on the side or the back to maintain as many spots as possible with good views of the screen.

 

What if it rains?

Good question, especially since the graduation plans washed out.

This night at the movies will be held rain or shine. According to the owner, since the audio is played through the car stereo or portable radio, people can sit in their car during a reasonable shower and see the movie just fine. It will only be canceled if there is severe weather, such as with very high winds, lightning, and threat of a tornado.

The current forecast for Tuesday has been going back and forth, as is normal for hot, summer evenings. It seems as if every summer night has a chance of rain.

 

Are alumni invited?

Yes! This private event is open to LPA current families, families entering in the fall, faculty and staff, and alumni. Friends and relatives are welcome to be part of their group, with the understanding that families are responsible for any guests.

 

Why does the movie start so late?

Drive-ins require darkness! Those with younger children are welcome to come enjoy the experience , to see people, and to view the start of the movie, and then to leave when they want.

 

Why are there concessions vouchers, and how do they work?

As part of the arrangement to hold his private event, Lake Pointe committed to provide a five dollar concession stand voucher to our first hundred guest vehicles. They are the same as cash at the concession stand if used that night. This guarantees the theater will make at least that much money, so that it is worth opening on an evening it is normally closed.

 

Do we have to buy items at the concession stand?

No, you do not have to buy anything. But you may not bring your own food and drinks. This is the same rule at other movie theaters, and ball parks for that matter. The owners make a certain amount of money on their concessions. That is why Mr. Miller encourage families to plan to spend some money at the concession stand – since there is no gate charge --  so that the event will go well and that we may be invited back to hold a similar event in the future.

 

Will Mr. Miller dress in a toga and do the hula in the pre-movie activities?

While this is simply a wild rumor and unsupported speculation, it is delightful to imagine, and we can always hope.

Final pick-up for students who are dropped off will be 8:00 pm at Kate’s Skating Center.

Be careful to wear shorts that don’t ride up as you are engaging in physical activity since we will be skating.

If you have any questions and/or concerns feel free to email LPA student life director, Chris Miler, at cmiller.lpa@gmail.com.

Jan. Parent meeting

December 30, 2016
By LPA staff

Tue., Jan. 10, 2017    Parent - Teacher: training & encouragement

On each year’s academic calendar, LPA schedules one or two days for parent training and encouragement activities to start each semester. These days look different from semester to semester, depending upon felt needs. For this year, the academic committee has decided to focus upon very practical and strategic matters, based upon what the parents will face in the new term.

Elementary parents

  • This semester’s activities for elementary parents focus on parent-teacher interaction in strategic subjects.
  • The sessions are scheduled only for the morning on Tuesday, so that parents can get what they need and be done by noon.
  • Elementary middle grade parents (5th and 6th) have a special session with grade level supervisor Shay Wilkerson.

Secondary parents

  • Secondary parents do not need to attend on Monday or Tuesday. There is nothing planned for secondary parents on these January days.
  • Instead, there will be one-hour morning assembly for parents, students, and teachers on the first on-campus day, Wed. Jan. 11.
  • Additionally, for 7th and 8th grade parents, there will be a special session with grade level supervisor Shay Wilkerson to follow the assembly.
     

The following is the elementary parent-teacher meeting schedule for Tue., Jan. 10

  • The sessions are designed to minimize overlap for parents of multiple students, but since families have differing age combinations, there is no way to eliminate this inconvenience of a parent being asked to be in two places at one time. In cases of schedule conflict, the best general advice is for the parent to go where he or she feels will offer the greatest benefit.
  • The day is for adults, - for parents and teachers to connect, to benefit, and to enjoy. Students will get their chance to come to campus on Thursday’s first day!
