Dear Lakeside Families, 

This is the last school newsletter of the year- unbelievable!! We hope your child(ren) have had a great year and you have been able to see their growth- academically, socially, and emotionally. We had a successful Kona Ice celebration day earlier this week to recognize students for showing the Lakeside Way: respectful, responsible, safe behavior! This year, over 97% of our students have had 0 or 1 office discipline referrals. That is phenomenal! We continue to work hard at practicing kindness and having a safe, inclusive environment for all students. Thank you for continuing to talk to your children about these important life skills at home too!

Next Thursday is the last day of school. The 5th grade promotion ceremony and DARE graduation is at 9:00 am on Thursday morning. Fifth grade families are welcome to attend! Please check in early at the office (Door #1) and bring your driver's license for our new check in system for volunteers/visitors. Fifth graders and families, we will miss you next year! Students, your collective leadership capacity, kindness toward others, and hard working spirit will be remembered! 

Field Day events will take place next Thursday afternoon beginning at 12:30 pm. Parents need to check in at the office if they are attending or volunteering at this event. Please use the PTO's sign up genius website if you'd like to contribute/volunteer this day! 

We have a few staff members that are retiring at the end of this school year. Please have your children join us in celebrating Mrs. Jari on Tuesday, May 31 by wearing her favorite color, purple! We will then celebrate Mrs. Grasley on Wednesday, June 1 by wearing her favorite color, red! Here is a little more information about our retirees:

  • Mrs. Jari has served students in Oshkosh for the past 31 years. She has been a first grade teacher at Lakeside for the last six years. Prior to that, Mrs. Jari served for 25 years at Merrill Elementary and as the District’s first English language teacher. Mrs. Jari is known for having high expectations, getting to know her learners as individuals, and tirelessly working with individuals and small groups to ensure all children grow! 
  • Mrs. Grasley has served students exclusively at Lakeside for the past 30 years. Mrs. Grasley has a deep-rooted connection to the school and Town of Black Wolf community, her father attended school at Lakeside, Mrs. Grasley attended school at Lakeside, and her children attended school at Lakeside! She also lives across the street from school! Mrs. Grasley was instrumental in efforts to create, revise, and update the mission statement of our school over her many years at Lakeside. She will be remembered for her creativity and her traditions with students, and hard working, dedication to our school.
  • Mrs. Murphy has served students at Lakeside in second and third grade for the past three years. Prior to that, she taught in Sheboygan as a classroom teacher and before that was a part-time reading interventionist. Mrs. Murphy’s appreciation for health and wellness is something she will be remembered for! 

As we wrap up this year, I am incredibly thankful for the opportunity to serve your children, your family, and the staff here at Lakeside. This is a special place and I look forward to seeing so many of you next year! 

Mrs. Ashton, Principal
