New Piano

Most of you know how important music and theater are at Lake Country School. Unfortunately, our piano needs to be replaced, and we could really use your help to purchase one that will be the best value for the heavy use it will get here at school.

The Board of Education has approved a new piano for Lake Country School. Our #1 school is a fine arts school and a new piano is needed immediately. The Board is asking families to consider a donation towards the new piano. Any amount will help, please drop off your donation or send your donation to school with your child. Donations should be dropped off in the school office. PIANO should be written on the memo line and/or a note should be sent with your donation. Receipts will be sent out in March. Thank you for your support!

New School Check-in System (Driver's License will be needed)

Starting April 1, 2020 we will begin using a more sophisticated check-in system called Raptor. The Raptor system will require you to scan your driver’s license when checking into school. Every visitor is instantly screened against the registered sex offender databases in all 50 states. The Raptor system checks visitors against custom databases set by each district, which may contain custody alerts and/or banned visitors. The system will also be used for volunteer/chaperone background checks. Many of the local districts use this system and 32,000 schools nationwide use this system to protect their students and staff.

Spring Book Fair - Starts Tomorrow!

The Spring Scholastic Book Fair will be held March 5 – 13th. The book fair is a wonderful and engaging opportunity for all ages to come to the library, explore and purchase books in every ready level at a discounted price from Scholastic books.

We still welcome volunteers to help with the fair. Volunteering is a fun & easy way to be involved to help support the school. All volunteers also receive a discount off all purchases!
