Dear Lakeside Families,
Class Placement Requests for 2022-2023
Class lists are created with the belief that student needs are best met through heterogeneous/mixed groups that take into consideration such variables as student numbers, gender ratios, student behaviors, and achievement levels. The services of our special education teachers and other academic specialists also impact a student’s placement. As a result, requests for classroom placements are usually not necessary.
The talents of our teachers at Lakeside are diverse. Matching teaching and learning styles requires appropriate knowledge of both the learner and the teacher. In addition, OASD Board Policy 5120 charges us with the important task of creating balanced classes. It also includes this statement in the policy: “Parent/guardian request for assignment of students to specific teachers prior to receiving notice of placement will be carefully limited to assure an equal opportunity for all students.”
If parents still would like to submit a request, they must base the request upon a legitimate need of the student. If a parent has an educational reason to support a classroom placement, the following guidelines should be followed:
Please submit a Request for Specific Teacher or Class Prior to Assignment form, stating the reasons why such a placement is important for your child's education. Forms are available in the office or you can fill out electronically here.
All requests should be received in the office no later than Friday, April 15th. No requests received after this date will be honored.
Due to the need to balance classes, distribute learning abilities, place students together in workable groups, and numerous other variables that must be considered, we are unable to guarantee that requests will be honored. Thank you for your understanding as we move forward to create great learning environments for ALL students!
Lakeside Glow Dance
The PTO-sponsored Glow Dance is next Friday, March 11th from 6 - 7:30 pm in the Lakeside gym. This is a fundraising event the PTO puts on each year with dancing, raffles and silent auctions. Some of the raffle baskets are valued at over $100, and there are always some great donations for the silent auction. This is a family activity and parents are expected to be present. The PTO is still in need of some helpers and some snack items, so check out the Sign-Up Genius to see if you can help. We look forward to seeing your families at the dance!

Lakeside Family Directory
In years past, the PTO has put together a directory of contact information for families. This can be incredibly helpful for people who are planning birthday parties, setting up play dates, or just making last-minute arrangements for an afterschool pickup, but it only works if families participate by providing their contact information to the PTO! If you are interested, please click HERE to fill out a Google form. The PTO will compile the information and publish it for families to use.
