January 2 - 5, 2018

Lakeside Lightning,

The Student Council visited RM Bacon to give gifts 
The World Is Yours: Turning Obstacles Into Opportunities 

Wow...It's hard to believe that we are in 2018! We are so excited to get back from the break and begin our learning process for the new year!

We accomplished so many things during the last few days of 2017. In fact, our school was highlighted in a Daily Journal article (and video) as we hosted the High School for a unique STEM Day. Please take a few moments to checkout this story. 

Throughout the Winter Wonderland week we also had our Student Council visit RM Bacon and provide gifts for the kindergarten students. The Student Council bought the gifts for the students themselves! It was amazing and many of the kids were convinced that our LMS students were elves! In addition the Student Council raised over 350.00 dollars to donate to a family who recently suffered a huge loss.

The LMS staff donated over 250.00 dollars to a needy family and 4 boxes of food to the First United Methodist Church in Millville. These generous donations were in lieu of attending the staff meeting, but more importantly, they came from the heart!

Winter Wonderland Week at LMS - Since we had so many pictures submitted to the blog this week, we decided to put them all together in a video for you to watch.

Phenomenal Friday - This is from Dr. Gentile's popular email to the district.
“Bobby Barber and Ryan Hudson organized a very successful STEM day for LMS 8th grade Algebra students. This event was attended by both parents and students and highlighted some of the awesome programs at the High School! Bobby and Ryan did a lot of work behind the scenes to make this event special! Go Junior Bolts!”

One of the staff PBSIS winners... Mr. Williams!

NJHS would like to thank all of the staff members who participated in our 4th annual Ugly Sweater Contest.  We had many that fit the criteria but the ugliest of them all goes to…. Mrs. Salvati!  In the spirit of the season, Mrs. Salvati donated her winning prize to a deserving family in need.  Congratulations!

All students interested in Intramural weight-training please get a permission slip from your PE teacher.  All students will need a physical in order to participate.

Seussical cast and CREW....please pick up the January schedules from the choir room.  Make sure you have one before the break because we start right in when we return in January.   Please study your scripts and practice your songs over the break.

Get your yearbook!!  Order your yearbook!!  Yearbook pre-orders are now being taken in Mrs. Sooy's room, M133.  The cost is $20 if you order in November or December and $25 after that.  Bring cash or check to Millville Board of Education to Mrs. Sooy in M133.  Don't miss out!!

Don't forget to eshare your photos for the yearbook.  Directions were handed out in homeroom, and they are on posters in the hallways.  Mrs. Sooy wants your pictures with friends, with teachers, with teammates.  She wants your selfies, your snapchat filters, your black and whites.  So upload, upload, upload using the code Lakeside18.

Thank you and the joke of the week is: What would you call an elf who comes to help the other 11 elves at the workshop? The Twelf.

We think that the coverage elf was captured 
Of course Dr. Cook had to take a selfie

Is that Mrs. Clause? 

Mrs. Salvati was so excited to see the elves 

She felt bad for the coverage elf but who wants coverage?
