Lakeside Lightning,

It's All About Respect At LMS! 

We hope that you are enjoying your Summer! Over the course of the Summer, we have been very busy here at LMS. We hosted several Summer Camps throughout June, July and August with over 600 students! In addition, we started our first Summer School with 28 students completing the requirements to move onto their next grade.

Our custodians have been extremely busy balancing all of the Summer Camps and cleaning the entire school.  We really appreciate our custodians and the hard work they do to ensure our school is prepared for the new school year.

The 3rd Annual 6th Grade Boot Camp will be held on August 20 and 21. We have had over 90 students register for this informative session. There are still spots available  on August 21. Please click this link to register.

We will be hosting our annual 6th Grade Parent Orientation on Tuesday, August 28, 2018 @ 6:00 PM in the Lakeside Auditorium. This will be a great opportunity for parents to learn more about what to expect at LMS in the upcoming school year.

Wrap up from 2017-18 School Year

Mrs. Sharpless's class earns 300 
Lakeside Lightning,

It's All About Respect at LMS!

We hope that everyone has been enjoying your summer. It is hard to believe that the school year ended just a few weeks ago. We have been busy at LMS wrapping up the 2017-18 school year and preparing for the 2018-19 school year. In addition, we have been planning for our first Summer School in a long time at LMS. Students who failed two classes or missed over 25 days will be engaged in a Summer School focused on academics, service learning, and motivation. The program starts on July 9 and goes until August 9.

In many ways we had another successful school year at Lakeside. We improved in a number of areas including Math and Language Arts assessments, recurring discipline referrals and subject area benchmarks. We offered more clubs and activities for the students to become engaged with. We offered new electives and more advanced classes! Lastly, we offered a new "Advisory" period which allowed students to work on character education as well as AVID strategies to improve their learning. We accomplished this together with help from the community, parents, staff and students!

We are looking forward to 2018-19 school year. As you can imagine, we are planning to continue to improve the school in all areas. Stay tuned for future LMS Lightning Round posts where will share all of the planned improvements!

Mrs. Sharpless's Class bits the 300 Club 
"On Wednesday we had a Chic-fil-a party to celebrate my students who made it into our 300 club.  These students answered 300 questions or more in one school week in addition to the work they did in math class and on their homework. That means they answered an additional 43 math questions per day!  As you can tell, this is a great accomplishment for these 7 students beings they are one of only 8% of all of my students who were able to complete this feat." by Mrs. Sharpless 

Mrs. Schwailik and Mrs. Birnstiel's achieved another milestone! 
"Another goal met and surpassed!!!  The "200 Book Challenge"!!! Mrs. Schwailik and Mrs. Birnstiel's 6th grade Inclusion Language Arts class is celebrating our "200 Book Challenge". As a class we have read 260 books and passed the corresponding AR tests." by Mrs. Schwailik

Mrs. Schwailik's class surpasses their 100 Book Challenge by 17 Books!!!
Each year Mrs. Schwailik proposes a challenge to her students by encouraging them to read 100 books. This year they exceeded the mark by 17 books. Not only did they read 117 books, they also passed all of the Accelerated Reader tests associated with those books. Her students read and more importantly comprehend what they are reading. This is such an amazing accomplishment. Congratulations to all of the students and to Mrs. Schwailik!

Student Council Trip to Great Adventure! 
Lakeside Lightning,

It's All About Respect At Lakeside Middle School 

You might have seen a different theme at the top of the post. We selected a new theme for 2018-19 school year. This theme is very special to us because as we examine all of the positive things and things that we need to improve the concept of respect keeps coming up. Next year we are going to talk a lot about respect!

This week our Board of Education celebrated the retirements throughout the district. Lakeside Middle School had two retirees attend the event. Mrs. Cirocco and Mrs. Corson were honored for their years of dedicated service to the students at Lakeside Middle School. Both Mrs. Cirocco and Mrs. Corson taught hundreds of students throughout their career. We are truly grateful for their contributions! At our final staff meeting of the year we will honor all of the retirees at Lakeside Middle School.

In addition, this week a few of our students had the opportunity to attend field trips. The Student Council went to Six Flags as a reward for their hard work and determination in making Lakeside Middle School better! The 8th grade AVID students visited the Magical Gardens in Philadelphia. The students are researching mosaics for an upcoming project at Lakeside.

Our week was capped off with an EPIC Lip Sync Battle. This year we had food trucks for the students and parents to enjoy. We raffled off over 15 baskets and with the entry fee totally 2,400 dollars raised for the PTO. This money will help off set activities for students and provides for the Staff Appreciation Luncheon. We are so grateful for all that attended and supported this epic event.

Good luck to all of the students this week as they take their FINALS. Here is the Finals Schedule:
Monday - LAL
Tuesday - Science/Social Studies
Wednesday - Science/Social Studies
Thursday - Math
Friday - Electives/Encore/PE
