Reminder - There is no school on Monday, January 30, 2017 due to Teacher In-Service

We had another amazing week at Lakeside. We had our monthly Millville Neighborhood Alliance Meeting with the 8th grade AVID students. This month they continued working on the various problem-based activities our students have identified. Each of the Neighborhood Alliance representatives worked with our students to refine their presentations.

On Tuesday we hosted our monthly PTO meeting. The parents planned the upcoming fundraisers and activities to support the teachers and students. In case you missed the meeting, you can always check out our Facebook page for the video.

Also on Tuesday, the AVID site team hosted their annual fundraiser at the Stratosphere Trampoline Park in Hainesport, NJ. The trip was well attended and the students (and staff) had a great time. Dr. Cook was even doing flips and climbing the rock wall.

We had a great turn out for our Chick Fil A night. In fact the Chick Fil A cow made a special visit to LMS and was even on our announcements! Thank you to everyone for their support.

PBSIS Ice Cream Social 
On Wednesday, Our PBSIS team coordinated an Ice Cream Social during the lunches and the students really enjoyed their treat. Be sure to continue to follow our 4 basic rules (Be Safe, Be Responsible, Be Respectful, Be a Good Learner) to earn ZAPS!

Also on Wednesday we had our monthly Staff Meeting. The teachers were trained in the new LGBTQ requirements for schools. In addition, we learned more about our ESS program and the awesome results so far this year.

The 8th grade teachers and students have already begun planning out their end of the year trip. This year will be different than the past. Stay tuned for more details.

Students - Enjoy the 3 day weekend and we will see you on Tuesday!

21st Century News
Shawn Jenkins & Gerald Bruman came from Millville High School to teach our 21st Century students about robotics. They even brought the high school Robotics Club's competitive robots.  They basically gave our students a box of parts and said, "Build a robot." Our kids learned to work in teams, push through their frustration levels, and reap the benefits of their hard work with an obstacle course challenge today.  It was an awesome experience and a metaphor for life. Thank you Mr. Bruman and Mr. Jenkins for supporting LMS 21st Century!
