Parents and students - Please be reminded that Fidget Spinners are not permitted at LMS unless you have specific permission in the Individual Education Plan. Spinners that are out will be confiscated and discipline will be enforced.

DRESS CODE – Your Image is Our Image
Also, this is a good time of year to become familiar with the dress code. For the entire dress code, please see this link on the Parent page of the Lakeside web page.

Lakeside Middle School believes that a strong relationship exists between what a pupil wears and the
attitude he/she displays. Therefore, students are expected to dress in a manner which is appropriate for a school setting. Clothing worn or items carried are not to be distracting to other students or disruptive to the normal routines and functions of the school. The following guidelines will be adhered to:
1. Students are expected to wear appropriate clothing to school, which does not affect the health,
welfare, or safety of the students or interrupt the education process.
2. District Policy applies; please see
3. Students are urged to be neat and clean, realizing that regardless of style, good grooming represents a personal quality that we all should possess. There is to be no personal grooming in class.
4. Specific dress requirements are as follows:
Hats, bandannas, scarves, other headgear, gloves, non-prescription glasses or sunglasses of any kind
will not be permitted to be worn in the building. Students must wear shirts fitted under the arm and
halter, tank, spaghetti strap, tube, midriff, and low cut tops are not permitted. Shoulder straps must
be at least three fingers in width. Students are not permitted to wear see-through clothing and all
pants are to be worn near the waist and not below the buttocks to ensure their safety. Students
wearing low-rise jeans must wear a shirt long enough to cover the top of their jeans or pants when
sitting. Items considered to be underwear, beachwear, or nightwear are not permitted. Clothing and
patches with anything inappropriate (alcohol related, drug related, violence related, anything with
profanity or racial slurs or of a sexual content) are not permitted. Shorts, dresses, and skirts must be
mid-thigh which generally constitutes 7 inches above the kneecap. Parents will be contact to bring
alternative clothing for their child to wear. No student shall bring heavy chains to school (including
wallet chains and pocket chains.) Outerwear jackets or heavy vests are not to be worn during school
hours inside the building.
5. The administration shall determine at what point certain types of dress or new styles are not in
accordance with the general principles stated above. Anything that is disruptive to the
educational climate will not be permitted.


Ms. Heim's 8th grade Art Club members 
We hope everyone had a great week like we did at LMS. With the temperatures in the 90s we were heating it up throughout the school as we finished the PARCC! Last week we had some excellent opportunities for Parent Involvement. On Monday we hosted our first Parent EdCamp. Unfortunately the turnout was a lot lower than expected. We were grateful for the one parent who attended. This dedicated father got one on one time with the staff, dinner and an opportunity to meet Millville Graduate Dwayne Hendricks (who happened to win a Super Bowl ring with the NY Giants).

On Tuesday we welcomed our incoming 6th grade class for a special education transition meeting. Parents and students were able to hear about the great things going on at LMS, get a tour, and meet the amazing staff.

This week looks to be a lot cooler and is starting off with some much needed rain. We have a few field trips this week and our 8th grade is hosting their first Field Day on Friday. Don't forget that next Monday there will be No School due to the Memorial Day Holiday.

Ms. Wichnick's Class is Starting a Recycling Initiative at LMS
Cumberland County participates in the Single Stream recycling process, in which all recyclables can be combined simply and conveniently. This includes paper, plastic, aluminum, glass, etc. (see reverse for county flyer). Please encourage your students to build the habit of recycling!

Each classroom and office should now have a blue container in which to place recyclables instead of throwing them in the trashcan. If you do not have one, please let us know and we will be happy to provide it.

Lakeside Lightning,

Turning Dreams Into Reality!

8th graders at the Semi! 
We hope that everyone had an awesome Mother's Day! This is a very special day for all of us because of the role that Mom's play in our life. In fact, many teachers feel that that they have plenty of "kids" each year. Yes, that's true that our teachers view the students as their own kids because they care about them, want the best for them, and are there for them while their at school. As we begin our week, we want to thank everyone for what they do to make Mother's Day an important day!
