Dear Lakeside Community,

     Happy Friday! Just reminder that next week has a minimum day EVERY DAY with a dismissal time of 1:15 pm. Thank you for making those arrangements ahead of time. It will be overwhelming for our minimal staff to supervise students and contact parents. 

     Thank you to all of you who attended the Lakeside Parcel Tax Study Group meeting last Friday night. The Ad Hoc Parcel Tax Committee is grateful for your insights and support. A special thanks to parents Desiree Hedberg, Matt Price and Kenji Morita for facilitating the important discussion and feedback session.

     Please calendar the following community meetings that have been scheduled so far to continue the conversation:     
     
     Tuesday, October 18th - Town Hall discussion (10:30 am)  
      Tuesday, October 18th - Town Hall discussion (7:00 pm)  

     A special thanks to Lakeside (Loma) parent Tammy Kelly-Nielson for her amazing dedication in taking all of our student and staff/school photos this week. Her merry group of volunteers (captured below by yours truly) were an incredible support group who helped organize, entertain and enliven our students. We couldn't do it without you!   

Warmly,

Dr. Lisa Gonzales
Interim Superintendent & Lead Learner
The 1st STEM Challenge
Quite a few students joined me today for the STEM Challenge. Here are our designers with their creations. A special thanks to the parental supervision on this one. The October challenge will be easier.

Think "eggs."
