Terrific Teachers
Three outstanding Lakehill teachers were named as finalists for the 2018 Greater East Dallas Chamber of Commerce Teacher of the Year Award.  Laura Gigliotti (Lower School),  Kaye Hauschild (Middle School), and  Jennifer Herta (Upper School) were nominated by their colleagues and peers for this prestigious award.

Each year, the Chamber recognizes six teachers from the community who are making a positive impact in the lives of students and leaving an indelible mark on their school. Nominees must display excellence in professional practice, community engagement, leadership in professional development, and attention to diversity. Recipients of this award have made significant contributions towards innovative, unique, and novel programming.
Nominees and award winners will be recognized on November 13, at a Chamber luncheon in their honor.

Kaye Hauschild was selected from nearly 50 nominees as the Private Middle School Teacher of the Year and will receive special recognition at the ceremony. Congratulations to these outstanding educators.
Students Enjoy Halloween Carnival
Lower School students and teachers showed off their creative costumes on October 31, during Lakehill's annual Halloween parade. Second grade student Aidan Deason led the procession through the building, before continuing to the gym for the Carnival. The coveted position of Parade Leader was sold at last year's PFC Benefit Auction. Parents, students, and faculty members lined the hallways to capture the moment and cheer on the children.

Following the parade, the Parent Faculty Club (PFC) hosted the Halloween Carnival, complete with a fortune teller, bounce house, craft table, face painting, and a variety of games, old and new.

Thanks to   Susan Widhalm  and  Shelley Shook for organizing the event and all the parents who came out to help.

NJHS Spotlight on Seniors
This week's senior: Nicole Dan 
Xinsheng Dan, or Nicole, is a exemplary student who has attended Lakehill since the second semester of her freshman year. Her favorite subject is math because she feels a sense of accomplishment after solving a really complicated problem. Nicole has participated in Math Club, International Club, Choir, and Varsity Tennis. Outside of school, she enjoys reading books and watching movies. Her favorite movie is Spirited Away.

Nicole has earned many awards while at Lakehill, including the Headmaster’s Honor List. She also was inducted into Lakehill’s National Honor Society last year. Nicole is interested in studying business in college. She has applied to the University of Texas, Purdue University, and University of California Santa Cruz. Her favorite Lakehill memory is from the Biology Trip last year, where she enjoyed seeing the fossils and observing the moon through a telescope.

A piece of advice that she would give to the younger Warriors is, “Enjoy and work hard in every class that you take.”
