Dear Lakeside Families, 

I hope your family had a nice spring break week. It's hard to believe that we are in the last quarter of the school year! Classrooms are busy places as we continue learning and growing. Our third, fourth, and fifth grade students have been preparing for the Forward Exam, the state-wide assessment taken once a year. District-wide literacy and math assessments will take place in April and May. 

We are excited about the new playground that will be installed in late April and even more excited that families will be able to see it at our Family Engagement Night on Thursday, April 27! Family Night will be from 5:00-7:00 pm and will include a quick dinner (Little Caesar's pizza) before checking out all the other events for the night. Please see this link for more information about Family Engagement Night and send in your RSVP for dinner! A copy of the form will be coming home with your child early next week. 

Mrs. Ashton, Principal

Fifth grade families are invited to attend during any of these times. If you come to either of the first two sessions, don't forget to check in at the office!

Spring Concert Announcement from Ms. Flood!

Hello, Lakeside families! I am happy to announce that we will be having a spring concert this year! All grades will be involved. The concert will be held on Monday, May 15th at 6:00 pm in the Alberta Kimball Auditorium of Oshkosh West High School. Every student has a special role in this concert, so it is important that your student is there. If you know that your student will not be able to attend, please let me know by email ( so we can plan ahead. Students will begin learning their music in the upcoming weeks and are so excited to share what they have been working on in class!

Please mark this date on your calendars! We will be sending out more information closer to the concert date.

I look forward to seeing all of our Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th Grade Lakeside families at this fun event!

Ms. Flood


We Need Your Help!It's that time of year when the playground gets extra wet and muddy at time, and spills can happen any time of year. Every day we have students coming to the health office in need of a change of clothes, and we could use your help! How? 

  • Send your child (even the big ones!) to school with an extra change of clothes, if you are able. They can live in their backpack, or stay in their locker until needed. We're always the most comfortable in our own clothes, so this is a great option!
  • If your child does need to borrow clothes from the office for a day, please wash and return the items as quickly as possible so that they can be available for another student in need. 
  • Do you have extra pants or shirts that your children have outgrown and can donate to the office? Please send them in! We could use shirts and pants in sizes 5 through 14/16!

If your child has a fall or spill resulting in wet clothes at school and we don't have something they can fit in, we may need to call you to bring some to school to get them through the end of the day. Thanks for your help - we appreciate it!


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!
