Lakeside Lightning,

Lakeside is an opportunity, not an obligation! 

Shelby and Robert at Cumberland County Government Day
Another awesome week at Lakeside Middle School. We completed our Spring Concerts this week as the 6th and 7th graders were able to show us their skills!

On Monday, we had two LMS students represent us at the County Government Day. Shelby Souders and Robert Cuff spent the day with Cumberland County Officials learning the intricacies of our local government.

Lakeside 8th grader, Savasia Durham, and her sister, Shania, an 11th grader at MHS presented to the 4th graders at Holly Heights about their Lenni Lenape culture.  Savasia dressed like a typical teenager and Shania in her regalia to show that they are normal teenagers whose culture is very important to them.  They talked to the 4th graders about attending powwows, showed them their dances, how they respect the elders of the tribe, and the importance of the Eagle feathers to their culture.  In the one picture below, Savasia is holding up the eagle feathers, and in another picture they are teaching them one of the jingle dances.  The 4th graders asked some amazing questions and were so respectful of their visitors.

Mrs. Oquendo's class with Officer Nick Cioncotti 
This week Mrs. Oquendo's class welcomed Officer Nick Cincotti.  He discussed the importance of respect and realizing your destiny, which only we can control.  The kids thoroughly enjoyed speaking with him.

Our 8th graders surprised Mrs. Stroup and her husband (Officer Stroup) with a baby shower. The students put a lot of time and effort into the surprise. They are excited to meet the baby!

Mrs. Abel coordinated her annual Bike Trip to Cape May. When you look at the pictures of the week below, you will see how much fun they had. Congratulations to all who earned their way!
