Lake Hills School
April 2015 - Several classes ventured outside to bring life into our Butterfly Garden. See them hard at work:
April 2015 - For 9 years the Col. Phillip C. Delong Detachment 1267 of the Marine Corps League has been blessing our school with their generosity. This time, $2500 was given for a swing set and 4 adapted bicycles. As one can see, they are already being enjoyed tremendously!
March 2015 - The Howey-in-the-Hills Garden and Civic Club donated $500 to Lake Hills School. The Garden Club has been a supporter of Lake Hills for many years and our hearts are filled with their generosity. The donation will go toward beautifying the school grounds and maintaining the butterfly garden.
February 2015 - The ladies from Harbor Hills Country Club in Lady Lake have been a sponsor for Lake Hills School for several years. This year they have made a generous donation of $2,500 to provide mini-iPads for our students. Their gift enables several of our non-verbal students to effectively communicate in ways they may never have otherwise. Their generosity will definitely make an enormous impact in the lives of our students. Our staff would like to publicly thank the Harbor Hills Ladies Charities for their wonderful gift!
