James Pinchot
James Pinchot has attended Lakehill for three years and made the most of his time as a Warrior. He has played tennis at Lakehill and spends his time outside of school coding, gaming, and running. James’ interests fueled his involvement in computer science classes at Lakehill, which he notes as his favorite subject.

Among James’ favorite memories is The Addams Family musical in November of 2018 in which he played the iconic character Lurch. 

James plans to attend the University of Alabama next year and major in Computer Science. His advice to younger Warriors is, “You are going to make it! Just keep pushing!”
The Tragedy of Julius Caesar
by: Elizabeth Schmitt, Middle School English Teacher

Students in eighth grade recently completed their unit on Shakespeare’s  Julius Caesar. Rather than assign one summative assessment, students had a choice of eight different projects ranging from presentations on the Roman world to drawing, animating or performing a scene to creating a board game. The most popular choice was creating a news broadcast reporting Caesar’s assassination. Some students used classmates to act out the parts, while Beckett Friesen played all the roles and utilized a green screen to change scenes.Others used their pets. Emma Costa Almeida’s cat made an aloof Julius Caesar, while Austin Sander’s dog portrayed a police officer at the senate while he played all the other characters. Davis Reid and Sabina Chamoy each created a Julius Caesar board game. Davis based his game on LIFE, complete with Roman coins for money, chariots, and jobs such as augerer, senator, or conspirator. Sabina’s game included ghosts who could possess another player and come back to life! Harper Kuhn persuasively connected events and themes in the play to current events. Three students, Gray Henegar, Connor Sullivan, and Skylar Lambert, used Minecraft to build Roman villas, the senate, and even the Globe Theatre. One project did stand out: Matthew Hjertstedt painstakingly created a 90 second animation of the moments leading to the assassination of Caesar. The short film took over 20 hours to produce. Each and every project demonstrated an understanding of the play as well as revealing aspects of their creative personalities.
