Lakeside Lightning,

Turning Dreams into Reality

Lakeside Lighting attend the AVID Summer Institute

This past week 7 Lakeside Lighting were fortunate to attend the AVID Summer Conference in Philadelphia. Monday through Wednesday, the team worked from 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM on their "strand" or in their "site team." Mrs. Benfer, Mrs. Hallenbeck, and Mrs. Lokuta presented to educators from across the country on the benefits of AVID. We also sent 10 students to attend the conference. The highlight of the Summer Institute was during the student spotlight Keynote speeches. Millville's own Quiana Rice delivered a powerful speech to thousands of educators on Tuesday evening. Be on the lookout for an increased AVID presence at Lakeside!

Lakeside Middle School to host inaugural Boot Camp
All incoming 6th grade students were recently sent a letter about the Boot Camp. We are excited to announce that we are hosting our first Boot Camp for incoming 6th graders on August 8th and 9th. The goal of the Boot Camp is to discuss the transitional process by demonstrating binder set up, establishing realistic expectations, and creating group activities. We hope to accomplish a positive experience while teaching new skills as our students’ transition into the middle school setting.

The Century 21 Summer program concluded this week. During the last week, the students were able to visit Cumberland County College to take part in STEM activities.

Throughout the program each of the students had the opportunity to work collaboratively as well as attempt new activities. A big thank you to the Century 21 staff for their hard work and their support.
