Joan Hill, Lamplighter head of school, meets with a boy from Peak Prep when Lamplighter delivered 75 presents.

The Lamplighter School dedicated its Angel Tree project to Peak Preparatory School, made up of mostly low-income families. Seventy-five students there received presents this Christmas.

Peak is part of Uplift Education, a company that runs charter schools in Dallas. Peak students are high-performing despite the fact that 97 percent of the student body is on free or reduced lunch.

After the success of the Angel Tree, Lamplighter is considering an ongoing relationship with Peak – maybe launching a joint service project.
