Spring Break Edition (March 28- April 1)

Lakeside Lightning,

Good Luck at RM Bacon, Mr. Coyle! 
The Lakeside Lightning had a very busy week leading up to the Spring Break.

On Tuesday, March 22, the National Junior Honor Society held their annual induction ceremony in the Performing Arts Center. Students were selected based on the core beliefs of the NJHS: Scholarship, Service, Leadership, Character, and Citizenship. A BIG THANK YOU to the coordinators of the program Mrs. Gaudio and Mrs. Booz. Congratulations to all of our new inductees and their parents!

For the past few weeks, students have been encouraged to raise money for JDRF walk on Thursday, March 24. Lakeside has supported JDRF for many years and continues to raise money and awareness for this cause. JDRF is major charitable organization dedicated to funding Type 1 Diabetes research. This year we had over 150 students participate in the walk and we raised over $6,000.00! For all their hard work and effort in fundraising, the students got a chance to walk, listen to music from DJ Mr. Garrison, and hear the message about JDRF from Mrs. Pettit. This event was co-sponsored by AVID. THANK YOU to all the teachers who helped organize the event and for their support of our students!

Also on March 24 we hosted our annual PBSIS Movie Reward. Students who have been following our rules have been rewarded with Zaps. Once they earned enough Zaps, the students were able to kick back and relax while watching The Good Dinosaur. We had over 500 students attend the Movie Reward! A BIG THANK YOU to the PBSIS Committee for establishing the reward for our students!

Dr. Cook held his first Staff Meeting on Wednesday, March 23 in the cafeteria. He reviewed his first 13 days at Lakeside and talked with the staff about his vision for the school. The staff also had the opportunity to hear updates on PARCC from Mrs. Benfer, 6th grade news from Mr. Godfrey, 7th grade news from Mr. Jimenez, and front office news from Mrs. Diaz.

Mr. Coyle, who will be the new Principal at RM Bacon starting April 4, was honored for his years of service at Lakeside Middle School at the staff meeting. Be sure to check out the article in the Daily Journal about Mr. Coyle's new position. He will be missed at Lakeside!

Enjoy the rest of your Spring Break. We will see you back at school on April 4, 2016.
