Dear Lakeside Families, 

We were so excited to see so many of you at Family Night last night! We hope you learned a lot about our school community! Do you have feedback for us? We'd love to have you complete this short, three-question survey to let us know how we did!

We invite your participation and volunteerism here at Lakeside anytime! Please consider joining us or participating in these upcoming events:

  • Our next PTO meeting is Monday, October 9th at 3pm. Please join us in the library for this meeting. The agenda is HERE
  • Annual Pumpkin Decorating Contest- coming up at the end of the month, see information below for details
  • Parent/Teacher Conferences are coming up at the end of October and early November. Make sure to sign up using the PTC Fast website! More information can be found below. 

Lastly, our first school fundraiser is going to be launched next week. This fundraiser also happens to be an amazing event for our students; the third annual Lakeside Walk A Thon! This fundraiser celebrates heart/body health and funds will go toward field trips and special events for our students. More information will be coming soon!

Mrs. Ashton, Principal

 Thursday, September 29, 2022 Picture Retake Day - October 25th!

Pictures from our picture day on September 20th should be arriving at school soon. If you ordered photos online or with a paper form on or before picture day, your package will come home with your student soon. If you did NOT order pictures, it's not too late! A proof sheet will come home with your student with an order link.

Don't like the photo? No problem! Lakeside's picture retake day is October 25th. If you already ordered a package and want a retake, just send the photo package back to school with your child on the 24th and your package will be re-created with the new photo. If you want a retake but haven't yet ordered, you can download the form HERE, or contact the office and we'll send one home with your student. Order forms need to be given to the photographer on the retake day in order to avoid shipping charges.
