Dear Lakeside Community,

Congratulations to Mrs. Wingfield's classroom for having 90% of their classroom show Lakeside spirit. They will have the Lakeside Raccoon & bragging rights for the next week. Way to go!

Thank you Annika Norquist and Katherine Wilcox for a great student report for Wednesday's Board meeting. I am proud of the hard work you put into your report and your courage for speaking in front of an audience.

Message from Miss Nelson -
Dear Lakeside Families, 
As many of you know, I have a background in vocal music and am excited to let you know I will be starting an after school choir! I would like to meet once a week after school for one hour and plan to have two performances this year. Choir will be open to all students. Rather than assigning a cost to this program, I would like to ask for donations of your choosing to be put towards the playground fund.  
I would like to meet Thursdays from 2:50 to 3:50. (This means students can come directly to practice and would need to be picked up at 3:50.) Please email me at with:
Your name:
           Your child’s name:
           Any questions:

Deadline to register for choir is September 13th.

Thank you,
Kajsa Nelson

Message from 4th/5th Grade - The 4th and 5th graders will be collecting money donations for victims of Hurricane Harvey. We have researched ways to support the victims and have found that donating money is the best thing we can do. The class has decided to send the donations to the Red Cross.
A container will be put in the office and posters will be made to encourage all students to participate and to encourage their parents, families, and friends to donate also. 

Picture Days - Please send your students in bright colors, that is what looks best in pictures. Try to avoid shirts with writing or big designs. If your child wears glasses and will be wearing them for pictures, please bring non-transition lenses.
  • Wednesday - K, 2nd and sibling pictures
  • Thursday - 1, 3, 4/5 pictures

Supervision After School  -  School ends at 2:40 Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and at 1:15 on Wednesday. We have had a few students remain in the office since school has started. Please make sure that your student is picked up on time.

Parent Information - If you are going to be on campus for any reason please make sure you sign-in with the office first. This helps us ensure we know who is on our campus at all times for the safety of all students and staff.
