Lakeside Lightning

Lakeside is an opportunity, not an obligation! 

A successful Step Up
What a great finish to an amazing school year. Our kids and staff worked all the way up to the final dismissal bell for the school year. Be sure to keep checking back on the Lighting Round Blog over the summer because it will be published weekly.

On Monday our PBSIS team hosted the End of the Year Extravaganza. Students had to have 20 Zaps in order to attend. During the Extravaganza, students were treated to pretzels and water while they played on bouncy houses. One of the highlights this year was the Dunk Tank. Each administrator and willing teachers spent time in the tank while kids tried their best to hit the target. A few administrators also participated in the "pie in your face" station. All in all a fun time was had by all!

On Tuesday we officially acknowledged the 8th grade class with the annual Step Up. This year we switched the event to the evening. The staff worked collaboratively to make sure the evening was special. A big thank you to everyone who helped out and attended. In case you missed it, Mr. Perry was able to produce this awesome video.

Wednesday we had our annual Awards Ceremonies in each grade level. Students were acknowledged for all of their hard work in athletics, academics, and their overall awesomeness. At the end of the ceremonies, the students watched the Lakeside Running Man. The kids laughed and some may have been pleasantly surprised with the staff's dance moves. A big thank you to Mrs. Ciccio and her daughter Devon for producing the video (and teaching us the dance)! In case you missed it, check out the video here:

  1. I love that the caption is Mrs. Cuesta "tried" to dunk Dr. Cook. Sorry about that failure Jen! ;) Beautiful student speeches at our step up, I am so proud of all of our graduates.
