8th Grade

8th graders are leaders at Our Lady of the Lake Catholic School. We lead school families which include students from each grade level coming together to complete service projects and community activities. We uphold a tradition of being the leads in the spring school play. 8th graders expand on their knowledge of Science, Math, Literature, Social Studies, and Religion with a focus on preparation for success in high school.


Mrs. Stephanie Hawk
This is my 6th year at Our Lady of the Lake and my second year as the 8th grade homeroom teacher. I teach English Language Arts and 6th, 7th and 8th grade  math. My passion is math and middle school. We strive at OLL to instill a love of math in all of our students. We don't believe in "math" people. We believe everyone can learn math at a high level with quality instructional materials and plenty of time. 
The middle school team at OLL is committed to preparing students for high school, honoring differences and celebrating the gifts of each of our students. We strive to provide rich learning experiences with opportunities for collaboration, critical thinking and creative expression. We also do our best to have fun!
In my free time I enjoy traveling, quilting and spending time with my family.
