COVID-19 Response Team @ Lakeside Elementary 


Dear Lakeside Families,

I am excited to share that our first annual Walk A Thon was a wonderful success! The weather was beautiful, the Oshkosh West pep band played out on the field while students, staff, and families walked, and the UWO Women's Soccer team and Officer Pete from the Winnebago County Sheriff's Department joined us to participate and celebrate! It was a great event to build community, stay active, and fundraise for new playground items! I am happy to report that we have raised over $5,000! We set our goal for $15,000 (about $60 per child). If you still have donations to turn in, please turn in next week. We are excited to share out our final total and work on the next steps to fundraise for our playground. 

Thank you to all families for partnering with us during your child's conference. We appreciate your insights and want to continue working together to help your child grow! 

Please note further down in this newsletter the date for the winter concert, as well as a reminder about the days off for Thanksgiving break. 

Wishing you well,

~Mrs. Ashton

Picture Day - Re-Takes Date

Lakeside's picture Re-Take day will be on Wednesday, December 1st. 

If you want a re-take of your student’s original portrait, please return the original package in its entirety to the photographer on re-take day.  A replacement package will be printed and delivered to the school with your student’s new image.  If you did not purchase photos from the original picture day and want a re-take, please have the student’s picture taken.


If you would like to order school pictures for the first time,  Please click HERE.


If you do not order your student’s portrait on re-take day, you will still be able to order online for the entire school year.  Approximately 3 weeks after the portrait is taken your student will bring home a proof form with their own secure private gallery password.  Online orders get mailed directly to your home and will include a shipping charge of $4.50.


Re-take photos will be delivered to the school approximately three weeks after the re-take day.



Lost and Found

Please have students check lost and found items. We really would like to have all these items find their way home.  

Please make sure all items are marked with children's name.
