November 28 - December 2, 2016

Lakeside Lightning

Turning Dreams Into Reality

Gratitude Wordle 
We had such an amazing week last week as we celebrated gratitude. Each day there was something to remind us why we need to thank others and be grateful for what we have accomplished as a school. One of the collaborative activities was the Wordle we created as school with input from parents, staff, and students. The Wordle was comprised of all of the comments in the Google doc that over 300 people filled out.

The Week of Gratitude expanded into the classrooms as teachers and students wrote thank you notes and cards for each other. Some classes made "Gratitude Walls" for everyone to express what they were most grateful for. In fact, Wednesday before the break there was a definite shift in the climate as everyone focused on gratitude.

PBSIS Fall Frolic Challenge - Cup Staking 
Our PBSIS Fall Frolic was awesome. Students who have earned Zaps were able to take part in "Minute to Win It" type challenges such as flipping the water bottle. multiplication pong, and scooter races. Thank you so much to everyone who supports a safe, responsible and respectful school!

This week we will be transitioning into December.   During the month of December we have a lot of exciting activities planned. Each grade will be performing at the Winter Concerts (8th - December 5; 7th - December 7; and 6th - December 8) all starting at 7:00 PM in the Auditorium. Our students will be visiting the Veterans home. We will be hosting our annual Book Fair December 5 - 9.

We want to thank everyone for their continued support of Lakeside Middle School. We couldn't do it without YOU!
