Dear Lakeside Families, 

As the end of 2022 nears, we have many reasons to be grateful at Lakeside. First, your children are simply amazing! As I've been in classrooms and hallways this week, I have heard such kind words from students to other students. Students are following expectations in the hallways and in other common spaces, showing respectful, responsible, and safe behavior. We have less office discipline referrals than last year at this time of the year. We also are pleased to continue seeing more faces volunteering in our school! If you want to volunteer, please reach out; we definitely can use extra hands! 

Next week, our student council has fun spirit days for all students and staff to participate in. Candy cane sales will continue next week as well. On Thursday, we will have a school sing-along prior to classroom holiday parties. 

Wishing your family a wonderful holiday ahead!

Mrs. Ashton, Principal

Reminder - Brighten Someone's Holiday

Just a reminder that the gifts for Lakeside's "Brighten Someone's Holiday" tree should be returned by Monday, December 19th. Gifts can be wrapped or unwrapped, but should be accompanied by their ornament so that Mrs. Lubinski knows which family the gift is for. Thank you all for your generosity and helping to make the holidays a little brighter for some of our families! Please contact Mrs. Lubinski with any questions. 

Happy Holidays!

Event RemindersAre you coming to school for an event during the school day? If you know you will be attending an event at school and you've already been scanned using our "Raptor" security system (this year or any prior year), call the office or send me an email ahead of time. I'll have your visitor badge printed and ready to go, and you can skip the line! 

Not "Raptored" yet? Please remember to bring your photo ID the first time you come to school for an event during the day. After that first time, we can look you up by name. 

Thank you for helping us keep our school and your children safe!

Volunteering RemindersWhat Volunteer Opportunities are Available? - Ask a Librarian Delaware

As a reminder, if you are interested in volunteering by helping in your child's classroom or chaperoning a field trip, you must have a pre-approved volunteer application on file before the volunteering event. These applications are to be filled out each school year, but then are good for the remainder of the year, and are effective for all OASD schools. You can find the application HERE.

Important!: Once you have completed your application, let the office know so that we can request that the application be processed; this does not happen automatically, and can take up to 48 hours, so please plan accordingly!
