Yearbooks

Our yearbooks have arrived and we will start to distribute them to our learners this week. I want to give a huge shoutout to our PTO for the outstanding publication that was filled with happy pictures of our kids and documents a year that was anything but typical.

Here is how we will distribute our books:

  • VIRTUAL 3rd and 4th graders that ordered a book and that are here for testing took their books home TODAY (5.12)
  • VIRTUAL 5th graders that ordered a book and that are here for testing will take their books home TOMORROW (5.13)
  • Face-to-Face learners in grades E-5 that ordered a book will take their books home on FRIDAY
  • VIRTUAL learners in E-2 that ordered a book will be able to pickup the books in our CAFE loop on Monday (5.17) from 9am to 10am and again on Tuesday (5.18) from 11-12:30pm.

I'm sure you will enjoy the yearbook as much as I did.



Shops of BHall

If your child is a K-2 learner, be on the lookout for your weekly newsletter regarding Second Grade’s Shops of B Hall for your chance to purchase handmade products made by our second graders. The proceeds from all sales will be donated to a charity of choice, chosen by Lakeside’s second graders.

Field Day

Lakeside's field day is coming in May.


Here are some details to get you ready for our fun-filled day

Field Day Information:

  • All K- 5th grade learners will be doing 11 different activities outside. K-2nd grades from 8:30-11:15, and 3rd-5th grades from 8:45-11:30. Pre-K will be outside for just a short period, 30-45 minutes. They will be mainly completing activities in the gym. Please apply sunscreen at home.

  • During field day, learners will be on different surfaces (grass and cement), so sneakers are a must.

  • During the fun flusher your child will become VERY wet if they choose to sit under the flusher, so please have them bring a complete change of clothing. Pre-K will not be participating in any water activities.

  • During field day, all learners must wear shorts, and a “top.” “Tops” can be a tank top, swim shirt, and/or t-shirt. (No bikini tops)

  • There will be a school wide snack break during the morning provided by PTO.

  • After morning drop off, both loops will be closed.

  • Since we have several fun stations located in the Cafe Parking Lot. This area will not be accessible for parking on May 21st until after 12:00. So, please plan to walk or bike to school that morning.
