Mrs. Smith’s Snapchat…

Hello Lakeside Parents and Guardians,


It’s truly hard to believe that it’s May 31 and the school year is almost over! I feel that we have had a tremendous year working with your children and we could not have been as successful without the support you have provided our school. I would like to thank you for participating in the fundraisers and multiple events we have hosted throughout the school year. It’s also been great to see so many of you visiting your child’s classroom, eating lunch with your child in the cafeteria and being a chaperone during a field trip. Your presence and participation in our building and in the education of your child is sincerely appreciated and he/she will never forget your support.


If you and your child are leaving Lakeside, I would like to thank you for all you have done to make Lakeside a better place and I wish you the best in your transition to your next school. If you are returning to Lakeside, we look forward to seeing you at Back to School registration on Tuesday, July 16, from 12:00-8:00 p.m. Our first day of school is on Monday, July 29. Please know that it is very important that you attend registration in order for us to obtain updated information and to ensure we have your child placed in a classroom for the first day of school. Also, at registration, our PTA will be asking you to join. We are extremely proud of our PTA and the support that the organization has given to our students and staff. Please know that you are all encouraged to join and participate as much as you can.


In closing, thanks again, for all you have done to support your child, your child’s teacher, and our great school! I hope everyone has a great summer!


Sincerely,

Mrs. Smith

Lost and Found

We currently have many personal items in the Lost and Found bins located in the school clinic. Please check with your child and if they are missing any clothing, jackets, books, lunchboxes, or other personal items, please have them check our bins. Any item not claimed by the end of the year will be donated to a worthy charity.

Outside Recess

It’s that time of year when we need to remind student to make sure they have appropriate clothing for recess. The district policy states students will be going outside for recess if the temperature and the wind chill are above 20 degrees. We have extra coats, hats, and gloves for students in need. Please contact the front office if you need assistance.


Students must go outside unless we have a doctor statement.

HEALTHY CELEBRATIONS


While we love to celebrate, please remember that there is a “no birthday treats “ guideline. To access fun and helpful resources for healthy celebration ideas please visit the district wellness policy by clicking on this link. Also, note that no birthday invitations are allowed to be distributed at school. It is school policy.

SCHOOL DISTRICT PUBLICATIONS/ NEWS MEDIA USE FOR STUDENTS

The occasion may arise when the school district wants to recognize your child or your child’s school. This may include your child’s photo, your child’s name or your child’s work in district publications, newsletters, on school district websites, and in electronic/social media or in staff training videos. We may also want to tell the media (including newspapers, television, and radio) about your child’s achievements. We never knowingly release information about a student to anyone who wants to use it for commercial/political purposes. However, we will honor your request to not include your child in these types of recognitions if you notify your child’s school office in writing that you do not want this type of information released.
