Dear Lakeside Community,
Happy Friday! We recently had another phase of
of our water supply
and there hasn't been much change. There are still small amounts of lead in the water in a number of locations, which have been mitigated by running the water in the morning and filters. We have a formal letter and report to share - click
to access that information.
September 1st marked the announcement that monthly STEM Challenges have started (Science, Tech, Engineering, Math). As a recovering math and science teacher, I'm offering a monthly challenge to any students or teams of students who want to participate. This voluntary monthly challenge is attached

Project Cornerstone will be surveying our 4th and 5th graders in September on the "Countywide Developmental Asset Survey." Most of the districts in Santa Clara County will be participating, and the Santa Clara County Office of Education (SCCOE) is picking up the expense of administering the surveys. The data gleaned will help SCCOE focus on trends in the county and services that can help districts better support students.
The Search Institute survey tools measure students’ attitudes, behaviors, and developmental assets. Developmental assets are positive values, relationships, and experiences that help young people succeed. Because we have so few students, trends may not be possible with our data, as the intent of the survey is also that students not be identified in any way. Permission slips have gone home and should be returned to opt out.
