April 25 - 29, 2016

Lakeside Lightning,

Lakeside is an opportunity, not an obligation

Lakeside Middle School supports Autism Awareness! 

The weather is finally starting to feel like Spring! Birds are chirping and the flowers are blooming.
Mrs. Schwailik's Earth Day Activities
This is always a special time of year when the beauty of life is evident!

When you look at the calendar of events, you may notice that we are starting 8th grade PARCC a day late. This is because the PARCC website was down this week. The website outage impacted almost all New Jersey School Districts.

This week we are looking forward to Take Your Child to Work Day. Some of our staff will be bringing their children to Lakeside. Student who participate in this event must get a note from their parent's place of work.
