Thank you Lakeside Parents and Friends,
In the spirit of Thanksgiving, Lakeside PTA is wholeheartedly thankful to all of our parents for their continued support. On November 21st, we had our Turkey Trot, the rescheduled run day for our Red Ribbon Run, and once again our parent’s signed up to volunteer to do the chute, charts, distribute water, and monitor the path on their bikes! It was a fun experience to watch them race to the finish line, and it could not have been accomplished without our volunteers. Thank you, parents!
And also many, many thanks for the water donations, coming to our restaurant nights and supporting all of the kids as they participate in Reflections and Red Ribbon Week. Your continued presence at our events is truly amazing and appreciated.
Wishing you a fun, and food-filled weekend with friends and family. Happy Thanksgiving!

Red Ribbon Week is fast approaching and once again Lakeside will hold its annual “Red Ribbon Week” Lake Run. This is a fun run for students and staff and it is an event in which everyone participates! This year we find that we are in desperate need of WATER! We only have 2 cases of water in storage and we have 760 students, along with staff, participating in the Run. We are asking that you please consider donating a case of water to keep our runners hydrated. The 16 oz. bottles are great for this event and you can drop off your water donations by the Lakeside sign on Lemongrass or by the Lakeside sign on Stone Creek.
We are also in need of volunteers for the event day. Come and support Lakeside. Click on the Signup Genius Link to find out more information on how to volunteer. http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0e4da5ad2aa6f49-lakeside4

Thank you to all the Lakeside families and friends who donated bags and bags of clothing, shoes and textiles. In a short few days, we collected 5370 pounds of clothing! That is over 2.5 tons of clothes that will be reused or recycled. For all of your efforts, we will receive $537 that will go directly back to our kids this year. Our clothing drive was a success and we look forward to doing it again next fall.
Welcome Back to School Luncheon
This year started off with a spectacular welcome back lunch for all of the teachers and staff. Samantha Rogers and Maia Starling, our two wonderful Hospitality PTA volunteers, created an amazing display as the backdrop to a yummy luncheon from Square One Pizza. This year, the PTA reached out to Coffee Bean Tea and Leaf during their give back to teacher’s campaign and they generously donated enough coffee and tea for each staff member! Thank you Coffee Bean!! And finally, PTA gifted to each teacher and staff member their choice of Spirit Wear! This year you will see our teachers and staff on campus with Lakeside pride. All this to start the year off and recognize the dedication that our Lakeside teachers and staff have for our kids. Thank you!
Welcome Back Mariners
Welcome back to school Mariners! We hope you are all enjoying the last few days of our lovely California summer weather. If you have not yet purchased the new Spirit Wear during registration day, you can still order until Sept 25th. You can also find the spirit wear form, the PTA registration form and other information on our forms and flyers tab.
This year we will continue the tradition of having our clothing drive fundraiser with Clothes for the Cause. Instead of discarding clothing and household linens, give them a second life. Clothes, shoes, textiles, purses, belts and more will be RECYCLED and REPURPOSED. Clothes for the Cause closes the loop in the end life of clothes and materials at the same time they turn all of our discarded material to cash for our school.
Our Clothes for the Cause drive will be September 5-8th. You will be able to drop off your bags of clothes at the Lakeside Middle School sign on Lemongrass and we will take them to the trailer for you! It’s that easy!!
We look forward to another successful and fun year at Lakeside.
