Lakeside Elementary

Just the Facts...October 9, 2019

What Starts Here Changes The World...

We have made it to the end of the first nine weeks! We will mark this occasion with our first Spirit Rally where we will:

  • Introduce our (Award Winning) Student Leaders.
  • Highlight our Red and Black Superstars.
  • Celebrate our Citizens of Character that demonstrated GRIT these first 9 weeks.

Congratulations to all of our LONGHORNS.

Please remember that school will not be in session this Friday (11th) and the upcoming Monday (14th). We do hope to see you for your conference this Friday. It's important for you to plan for the following:

  • Conference schedules are back to back throughout the day. Please plan to arrive and depart on time in order to respect everyone's time.
  • You will not need to sign in upon arrival. Please plan to head directly to your child's classroom.

I hope you all have a wonderful long weekend!

Safety Drills

Remember that some of our drills must take place monthly and others will take place quarterly.

Red Ribbon Week is coming:

News you can use...


Do you have markers that don’t work? Send them to the Lakeside Art Room for recycling. When we get 8 pounds, we can send them to Crayola and they will make them into new markers!!!

Thank you Lakeside PTO Green Team ~ What starts here changes the world!
