Hello Lakeside Families,

The MSD of Warren Township is evaluating our technology needs and how to better serve our families and students in the district. Since iPads and Chromebooks require a WiFi connection, we are interested to know whether our students have access to WiFi at home. Please take just a few moments to complete the survey below:

We had a GREAT 1st week of Learn at Home activities! It was great getting to see so many familiar faces connecting with each other! I look forward to being able to visit with more students in Zoom classrooms next week! Just a reminder that our Learn at Home Lessons and choice boards will be available for students at 8 am on Monday morning at

Although we have enjoyed connecting virtually with 95% of our students this week, we all still look forward to the day we can be face to face again. Please take a moment and share the video linked below with your student. We miss our Lakeside students!

I hope that you and your family have a great weekend and as always, I thank you for your continued support of Lakeside Elementary!

Playworks has for over 24 years focused on bringing games and activities to schools, while creating a safe and healthy recess for students. We are now, more than ever, committed to responding to the need for continued healthy activities at home through several resources we are offering for free:

  • Play at Home Webpage: A library of videos and other resources featuring games and activities families can play at home. Each meeting the CDC requirements of social distancing and limited equipment. All available free on the Play at Home webpage

  • Play at Home Playbook: This game guide has a variety of games and activities families can do in their own home, with little to no equipment necessary.

  • Live Virtual Recess: A Playworks Coach leading a morning warm-up, a midday game, and an afternoon cooldown each day. Anyone can tune into Facebook Live Monday- Friday at 12:00pm, 2:00pm, and 4:00pm EST and play along.
