By Lake Pointe News

Before heading into Thanksgiving break, elementary and secondary students came together to pack Christmas bags for children in Guatemala. Lake Pointe students packed 110 bags full of necessities, like tooth paste and soap, and small toys to be delivered to villages in Guatemala by Clubhouse Ministries. Including bags and donations from local churches, over 150 bags were shipped with funds for over 80 pairs of shoes to be provided.

A big thank you to all who donated and showed up to help pack bags!

Secondary students invited elementary students to campus after their Friday classes for a Gaga ball tournament and playground games. The Gaga ball "pit" was donate to the school through an eagle scout project; since then, gaga ball has been a favored sport for recess and lunch across the grades. The tournament began with the kindergarten through second grade game, which was followed by a multi-round tournament for third through sixth graders. Secondary students officiated the tournament and cheered the elementary students on. While the older students competed, K5-2 students played tag and other games on the playground, and parents enjoyed a time of fellowship.

Fall Time Fun

October 23, 2017
By Lake Pointe News

With beautiful fall-like weather, the Lake Pointe 2017 Fall Festival was a delightful celebration of the season! Elementary families flooded in at the peak of the afternoon. This portion of the day featured face painting, sack races, a bounce house, hay rides, and many other festival games. These activities were ran by secondary student volunteers who not only managed the games but also encouraged and played along with the younger kids.

As the temperature dropped with the sun, secondary students enjoyed an evening of pumpkin carving, pie eating, and yard games. The cooler weather made it just right for a bonfire and line dances.

Overall, there were about 110 tickets sold; about 90% of the profit from the festival will be aiding in this year's student life missions focus--to help build wells in areas without access to clean water!

A Fine Night for Art

May 11, 2017
By Lake Pointe News

The spring semester’s Fine Arts Night revealed talent across the grade levels. Opening the evening with a wide variety of musical talent, Mrs. Vinson and Mrs. Tyrpak lead the various music classes through a choreographed performance that combined and displayed the differing grade levels’ talent. 1st and 2nd grade music classes lead the way with hymns, sung and performed on the recorder. They were joined on stage by the beginner and intermediate violinists, who continue to play as the younger students exited the stage. The audience was then covered with a medley of songs performed by the advanced elementary and secondary ensembles.

After a small intermission where guests were invited to browse  the visual art displays throughout the building, the elementary drama group, the largest ever, performed the musical "Famous Kids of the Bible," with spirit, spunk, and humor. Through their theatrical display, students graced the LPA campus with the presence of prophets Nathan and Jeremiah, evangelist Rodah, and best friends Jonathan son of Saul and David son of Jessie--all in kid form, of course! These Biblical characters reminded the other performers, as well as the audience, that God values and loves people of all size, age, and position.

Fields of Festivities

The cold and clouds couldn't damper spirits at the annual LPA field day. From parents and students to teachers and staff, the Lake Pointe community came together at Camp Canaan for this last school-wide event. As the games began, teams, composed of elementary classes and headed by secondary student leaders, gathered together with great enthusiasm. Each team donned head bands, arms bands, and team colors and waved their team flag as they competed against one another. After the races and relays, each group enjoyed rotating through various stations coordinated by secondary students that challenged their balance, strength, and team work.

Meanwhile, parents, younger siblings, and teachers enjoyed spectating as they fellowshipped on the side lines wrapped in warm blankets. Afterwards, everyone gathered to enjoy a delicious, covered-dish cookout. Even though the structure time ended, the festivities did not. Pick-up games of soccer and basketball lasted until the sun and temperature began to drop.

Guatemala Christmas

To Guatema with love. For Christmas.

On November 4th, secondary and elementary students partnered with Clubhouse Guatemala by packing gallon-sized zip-lock bags with toys and basic necessities to send to children in Guatemala.

In one of the several joint elementary- secondary events held during the year, each elementary student had a secondary student as partner in assembling the bags. Afterward, all the students enjoyed a time of refreshments and recreation outside.

Through generous donation from LPA families and the Bridge Church, the students were able to send over one hundred packed bags. Tim and Lori Sunday, the worship directors and team coordinators with Clubhouse Guatemala, visited campus on Monday, November 7th to collect the packed bags and share their heart for ministry with the secondary students. Parent organizers, Mrs. Vensk and Mrs. McCarter were on hand to help the Sundays pack the outgoing truck.

According to the ministry's web site, Clubhouse Guatemala is "sharing, serving, and growing the harvest of Jesus Christ." CG is currently serving Guatemalan families in 13 different communities, with Student Development Centers working with over 1000 kids and their families on a weekly basis. The organization impacts thousands of lives with ministries such as VBS, Block Parties, Medical Clinics, Home Construction, Water Filter Systems, Chicken Coops, and many other ways. Two church plants are in process and a seminary is now open. For more info, click here.
