Lakeside Lightning,

Turning Dreams Into Reality

Bird-feeder Dab by Mrs. Scwailik's students 
We hope that you enjoyed Memorial Day Weekend. The purpose of Memorial Day is to remember those in the Armed Services that lost their lives while fighting for our country. It has also become the "unofficial" beginning of summer where most people go down the shore or have a barbecue. At LMS, we do not celebrate the beginning of summer until June 17 (this year). We have plenty of school days left to make a difference and to turn dreams into reality!

Last week we had a few activities that engaged our parents and community. On Tuesday we hosted the final Millville Neighborhood Alliance meeting of the school year. All of the students who identified problems in the city were supplied with resources from the Millville Neighborhood Alliance. These projects will continue through the summer and into next year!

In addition, we hosted our annual AVID Awards Dinner on Thursday evening. We had over 200 parents and students enjoying hot dogs, hamburgers, water ice and cake during the baseball themed event. A big thank you to the AVID site team as well as all of the parents and student who attended!

This week we have some amazing performances scheduled!!!! 
On Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings our student concerts and art show will be taking place in the Auditorium! Art show begins at 6:30 PM followed by Choir and Band performances at 7:00 PM. Come support the Fine & Performing Arts students and see all their hard work pay off!

High School STEM Labs will be created for our 7th graders on Wednesday

  • Pop Rocks Viscosity – students will complete a 5 senses test with pop rocks and then they will complete a viscosity experiment using different liquids to test the pop rocks reaction to each.
  • Tower Challenge – students will learn about the strength of shapes and then participate in a tower building activity.
  • Slime Creation Station – students will discover the chemical reaction as ingredients are combined and slime is created!
  • Spherification – students will learn about the chemical process of transitioning a liquid into a semi-solid liquid filled bubble.
  • Rube Goldberg Machine – students will work in groups to create and test a complex series of simple machines to complete a simple task.
