An historical event

November 13, 2016
By Lake Pointe News

 

Elementary students unfold history 

Mayans gazed in wonder at the Hebrew Tabernacle. Egyptians were inspired by the Gettysburg Address. And representatives from various nations and eras of church history reminded the audience that God loves all people groups and that history has a purpose in His plan. Students and teachers combined for a very successful History Night and are to be commended for their efforts.

Grades K5 through six each presented a program on their studies so far this semester. Additionally, various history projects were on display for all the families and extended families to see. Lake Pointe's curriculum uses the teaching of four periods of history: ancient, medieval, early modern, and modern. With one period studied each year, this cycle repeats every four years through 10th grade, after which students study American History and Government.

 

Fall Debates held

Series of 8 debates shows students' skills

Secondary students recently showed a lot of mettle in facing each other in a series of grade level Lincoln-Douglas styled debates.

Throughout the fall semester,  students in grades 7-12 participated in practice and planning sessions for the annual debates. Focusing on historical and moral issues, organized through the history courses, students were placed in groups according to class and assigned either affirmative or negative positions to varying issues.

Groups worked together to build supports and defenses for their stance and Friday they gave their argument presentations in front of a large audience of parents and fellow students. Though winners were awarded, everyone participating did an excellent job.

Future debates will focus upon fine-tuning the training for students and coaches alike. "We were very pleased with the students' work and execution," said head of school Louis Lemmon. "The students were prepared and represented themselves well. With continued training in how to sharpen their skills, we see the debate component as an important part of equipping students."

History instructors agree that the debates teach students two vital skills: to be prepared and to think on their feet under pressure.

Campus work

Two campus grounds improvements took place this week.

Creekside Landscaping used a load of topsoil to level low spots in the side and back yards so that students would be less likely to stumble during recess games. Seed and straw topped off the newly leveled ground.

Additionally, the parking lot was reshaped, and ruts were smoothed for an easier entrance to and through the parking areas.

Guatemala Christmas

November 07, 2016
By Lake Pointe News

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.
