Lightning Bots at the Tech Showcase 
Lakeside Lightning,

It's All About Respect at LMS! 

We had a very successful week at Lakeside. On Wednesday we hosted over 45 educators from Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey. The feedback that we received from the AVID Showcase was very positive. The educators observed classrooms with high level of activities. They were impressed with our hallways and how respectful are students were. During the visit, we highlighted 10 AVID students who talked about their experiences at LMS, their binders, and the academic rigor at our school. Dr. Cook, in talking with the visitors said, "We have a lot of amazing things going on at this school. It is important for us to take the time to recognize this and to be grateful for the positive contributions of our teachers and students."

In addition, we had LMS students who attended and presented at the Technology Showcase held at Silver Run. Plus, we had students share their special Jazz talents at Shalick High School. Our 6th grade students did an amazing job at the 6th Grade Dance! Great job everyone for displaying their hard work and efforts!!!
