Did you know that Lakeside has digital printers and robotics machines? Our science department is making a big push to include these new technologies. Lakeside PTA completely supports these efforts and this year was awarded a $3000 Science Grant to help purchase the supplies needed. We look forward to all the new engineers and computer scientist.
Meet Peter Fatzaun, he is Lakeside’s Library Media Specialist and chief conductor of all things cool in traditional paper and digital media. He encourages our kids to read and in fact, our Lakeside kids check out more books than any other middle school in the district. Mr. Fatzaun presented this bit of information and many others during one of our PTA meetings. PTA was so impressed by his enthusiasm and dedication to reading and kids, that we awarded a $1400 Library Grant for Lakeside and Mr. Fatzaun to continue his work. Here is just a small portion of the books the kids enjoyed this year and will continue to enjoy for many years to come.
PTA awarded Nathan Robinson a $5000 music grant, which was used to purchase 2 new beautiful cellos and 1 brand spanking new shiny tuba! Well deserved for Lakeside’s 2018 Teacher of the Year!
We ended the year by hosting a delicious holiday breakfast for all of the teachers and staff, which of course included the now-famous Donut Wall! Thank you, parents, you helped make the first half of the 2018-2019 so memorable!
During November, PTA helped with our second annual Turkey Trot. Thank you to all the parents who helped make that event a success.
As the year comes to a close, we look back at this year filled with so many fun memories and accomplishments. Do you remember last August? Seems so far away now, but for the incoming 7th graders, a whole new landscape to learn and the 8th graders ruled the kingdom, our Clothes for the Cause Drive, and Welcome Back Luncheon for the teachers started the year off!
Hot Coffee and Churros for snack today at Lakeside.
Teachers and staff enjoyed the Nachos bar at lunch.
It’s a Nacho Average Teacher Appreciation Week! Please take the time to send a teacher a thank you note this week.
