March 13 - 17, 2017

Lakeside Lightning,

Turning Dreams Into Reality!

Mrs. Henry's students doing a gallery work in their latest PBL
We had another successful week at LMS. I am sure many of you wonder how do we continue to produce such amazing things each week? It is easy because we have the best students and staff!

We are not without our flaws or areas to improve. In fact, this week, staff and administration have been preparing to address these concerns in grade level meetings. Here is a list of things we will be reviewing:
- Earbuds
- Hoodies
- Running
- Volume
- Food and drink
- Students staring at their cell phones

- Students refusing to put cell phones away (failing to follow a reasonable request)
- Students bringing in homemade slime
- Students bringing in food and drink

Grade level offices (Once a student is removed)
- Cell phones
- Ear Buds

Is anyone seeing a pattern? Although we have developed a unique Bring Your Own Device Policy in our district (mostly pertaining to cell phones) we are reconsidering this at LMS because of distractions and misuse. Most concerning, however, is when staff members address students regarding these concerns, they are often met with disrespect. We feel that students may not be ready to enjoy this responsibility.

Parents, we will be making updates to our cell phone policies and sending them home this week. Cell phones are a privilege at LMS and those students who can not follow our guidelines will be subject to discipline and other consequences such as losing their cell phone privileges. We need your help to maintain a positive learning environment at LMS!

PI DAY - March 14, 2017 

They call him Dr. Buckets 
As you may already know, Pi Day is fast approaching. On March 14th and the days leading up to it, we will be planning a few school wide activities. If you have any additional questions, please contact Mr. Fien in M110.

COIN DROP: There will be three containers placed in the cafeteria for each of the vice principals. Students and teachers can drop their spare change in the bucket of the V.P. they would like to see get pied in the face. Whichever V.P. collects the most change will “win.”

MEMORIZATION CONTEST: We will be holding a contest during lunch periods to see who can memorize the most digits of Pi. Attached, you will find copies of the first X digits of pi. These can be passed out to students to study from. Whichever student can memorize the most digits, will win a gift card.

HAPPY PI DAY CARD CONTEST: Students can design their own “Happy Pi Day” card. We ask that they use an 8 ½ x 11 sheet of computer paper folded in half once. The card can open in either direction. Complete cards can be submitted to Ms. DiMattia or Ms. Moratelli on or before Monday, March 13th.

PAPER CHAIN: Contact Mr. Fien if you would like to have one of your classes participate in making a Pi paper chain. This will take no planning on your part, all supplies and directions will be provided. If you are participating, all completing loops need to be turned in by Friday, March 10th. Please see attached document for more detailed information.
