March 7 - 11, 2016

Lakeside Lighting,

Welcome to Lakeside Middle School's new blog, The Lighting Round. The purpose of this blog is to shine a bright light on all of the awesome activities going on at our school! This blog will be published weekly throughout the school year and summer. Have an idea or a suggestion? Be sure to email Dr. Cook.

Announcements for the Week
An informational meeting for anyone interested in participating on the Fall Varsity Cheer leading squad will be held on Thursday, March 10th at 2:30 in the cafeteria. See Coach Bracaliello or Coach Gaunt at the Senior High with questions.

If you want to be a part of the track and field team this spring you need to listen to this announcement. There will be a track and field meeting after school on Monday. The meeting will end at 4 o’clock. If you are planning on staying for the meeting, you should have your ride pick you up from behind the gym. Again, track meeting will be on Monday until 4 o’clock.

The March Coin Drop AVID fundraiser is up and running! Bring your spare change to the cafeteria by March 15th to help select which teacher will “win” the honor of either getting a pie in the face, dressing like a leprechaun, or dressing like a pirate for a day.

It’s that time of the year again!  AVID is sponsoring its annual JDRF Kid’s Walk for the Cure.  Help us raise funds to find a cure for diabetes by asking your friends and family to sponsor you.  Any student who gets at least $10 in sponsor donations will attend the walk on March 24th from 8:40-10:40.  As an extra incentive, all students who raise at least $20 will get to attend the walk AND get a free ticket to the PBSIS movie that afternoon.  Money is due my MARCH 17.  See Mrs. Lokuta in B106 if you have any questions
