Week of Gratitude - November 21 - 25, 2016

Lakeside Lighting,

Turning Dreams Into Reality

6th grade Staff Thanksgiving
Since we will be celebrating Thanksgiving this week, we decided to create a Week of Gratitude at Lakeside Middle School. Each day the students and staff will be encouraged to express their gratitude through a few activities. Who knows where all this will lead? Students and staff are encouraged to take this to another level!

According to Webster's dictionary, gratitude is defined as....
the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.

Here is an overview of our Week of Gratitude:
Monday - All staff will receive a blank Thank You card. They will be encouraged to write a Thank You to someone that they are thankful. 

Tuesday - Gratitude List into a Wordle - Staff and students will be encouraged to fill out the form (click here) and write 3 things they are grateful for at Lakeside Middle School. We will take all of the words and phases and create a Gratitude Wordle. 

Wednesday - All teachers will be provided with two blank sheets of paper for each student. Then, during their Strategies class they will be encouraged to write a Thank You to any teacher who has impacted them. 

This Monday (11/21) we will be hosting our Parents as Leaders Kickoff at 6:00 PM in the DMC. Parents have been encouraged to sign up for this awesome opportunity. If you would still like to attend, please feel free to show up on Monday. For more information, contact Ms. Moratelli or Dr. Cook. 

Just a reminder that we will be having an Early Dismissal on Wednesday, November 23 at 1:05 PM. 

Recap of Last Week
On Thursday, we had about 100 6th graders receive their yellow belt from Master Jung. The students have been working hard in their physical education class over the past 8 weeks. A big thank you to Mr. Godfrey and Mrs. Murphy for hosting the event.

6th Graders at the Tae Kwon Do Graduation Ceremony 
Are you tough? Did you play Soccer or Football in the fall and want something that will make you bigger, stronger, and faster in the wintertime? Check out the door outside of M101 to sign up for Lakeside Wrestling team. Lakeside Wrestling needs you sign up this week outside of Coach Williams's door at M101. If you haven't gotten a physical or recent this year, then keep listening to the morning announcements as the week continues.  If you have any questions about physicals just ask Coach Williams in between class changes. So, if you're tough enough sign up for the team.

Take it to the Bank
Mrs. Wichnick's class had representatives from TD Bank visit her class. They came in and did a lesson on savings accounts/deposits/withdrawals/filling out slips and had lots of goodies for the class, including a voucher to start a new savings account with $10.00 from the company. Mrs. Wichnick's class loved it!
