Lakeside Lightning,

The World is Yours: Turning Obstacles Into Opportunities

Mrs. Oquendo met Meteorologist Melissa Magee of Channel 6 
Another week is upon us and we are getting closer to the start of the 2017 - 18 school year. Honestly, there is still plenty of time left before school officially starts. In the meantime, be sure to make the most of the summer. We will be making the most of it here at LMS!

On Monday, August 21, 2017 our region will be treated to the Great American Solar Eclipse! We have completely sold out of the Eclipse glasses. If you would like to join us for this monumental occasion, we will be gathering on the front lawn around 1:00 PM. All are welcome to attend. Want more information about the Solar Eclipse? Check out the Video of the Week below.

New Student and Parent Orientation
Are you a new student? Did you transfer from another school? Are you an incoming 6th grader? If you answered yes to any of those questions, you should plan to join us for the New Student and Parent Orientation on August 29 from 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM. During the Orientation we will review the nuts and bolts of the school as well as answer questions.

Student Schedule Update
Mrs. Lokuta visited with daughter Lilly
Schedules are still being finalized and will not be given to students until the first day of school.  Homeroom assignments will be posted on the Lakeside website by August 29. We will also be mailing home a "welcome back" letter with homerooms. Schedules will be distributed to the students in homeroom on the first day of school.

Girls Field Hockey
Any girls interested in playing field hockey, Coach Wichnick strongly encourages you to have your physical completed and returned as soon as possible. Sports physicals are valid for 365 days from the date of exam. If your physical date is more than 90 days old, you must complete a re-certification form. Physical and re-cert forms are available in Lakeside's main office or the district website https://www.millville.org/Page/1137.  Any questions, please email amanda.wichnick@millville.org.

Second Annual Boot Camp - A Success! 
This week we completed our 2nd Annual BOOT CAMP. We were able to impact 110 incoming 6th graders.Without the support of several people this would not have been possible. Mr. Godfrey is very grateful to all that helped and participated!

Millville Pride Girls Soccer Team
This week our 6th Grade Boot Camp kicks off.. There will be 4 sessions this week on Monday and Tuesday. Each day there will be a 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM and a 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM session. Last week we had to close registration because all sessions are filled!


Congratulations to the Millville Pride Girls Soccer Team. These girls, both present and former LMS students, won the Hersey Cup 2017 over the weekend.

It wasn't easy to win the championship. The girls had to go into overtime and then eventually won on penalty kicks. On behalf of Lakeside Middle School congratulations!
