May 31 - June 3, 2016

Lakeside Lightning,

Lakeside is an opportunity, not an obligation 

We hope you are all enjoying Memorial Day Weekend. This is a very special time for our country as we pay respects for real reason we have this extra time off. In short, Memorial Day is a Federal Holiday for remembering the people who died while serving in the country's armed forces.

Here is a video about Memorial Day

Mrs. Gaudio and Dr. Cook with  Jordan, Jorja, and Phoebe
Last week we had an amazing time at Lakeside. On Monday, 3 eighth graders (Jordan Sprowl, Phoebe Baldasarre, Jorja Hibschman) were honored at Stockton University for winning the Stock Market Challenge 2015. Our team beat out at least 15,000 teams in New Jersey and thousands more nation wide as they were named the Middle School Champions.

On Wednesday, our 8th graders took the NJASK Science. In addition, the National Junior Honor Society (who came in early) went to Dave and Busters. Later on Wednesday, the entire staff gathered together to analyze 8 areas for improvement for next year. Teams were grouped randomly and everyone had the opportunity to share ideas. Look out for an awesome year!  On Thursday, the Student Council and Student Leaders club went to Six Flags for their annual trip.

This week our 8th graders will be going on their field trip to iPlay America. The 8th graders will have the opportunity to play games in New Jersey's lagest indoor boardwalk. Only those 8th graders who have earned enough points and paid their admission fee will be able to attend.

Any 8th grader who missed the NJASK Science assessment will need to participate in the Make-Ups on Wednesday. This Thursday evening is the annual AVID Awards Dinner at 6:00 PM. AVID students  and parents will great food while getting honored for their hard work!

This Friday our 6th graders will their annual trip. This year the eligible 6th graders will be going to the Funplex complex in Mt. Laurel.
