Lakeside Lightning,

The World Is Yours: Turning Obstacles Into Opportunities

Although we didn't have school, the custodian crew worked!
Last week the east coast experienced an unprecedented storm called a Bomb Cyclone. I am sure every had to look that up as we did, but in short a Bomb Cyclone refers to "a phenomenon expected to occur as this weather event unfolds. The official term is explosive cyclogenesis, or bombogenesis which—in addition to being my new favorite word—is actually really common." (Source: Popular Science)

A big shout out goes to our custodial staff. They braved the storm and shoveled the grounds around the school. As you are aware, our school is humongous with lots of sidewalks. The custodian staff ensured that we would be safe when return to school on Monday.

Important Parent Meeting - January 10 at 6:00 PM in DMC 
This week we will have a special parent meeting on Wednesday, January 10 at 6:30 PM in the DMC. The purpose of this meeting is address concerns of bullying at Lakeside Middle School. Sue Bacon, from the NJCAP program, will review how all of the students and staff are trained to identify and address bullying at Lakeside Middle School. This will be a great session for parents to attend so they can see first hand how LMS is addressing bullying.

Buffalo Wild Wings Fundraiser - From now until April 2, 2018 (Benefits 8th grade) 
We are participating in a unique fundraiser at Buffalo Wild Wings.

Here are the rules: "When your guests dine with us they simply show this card to the staff member processing payment.  At this point the team member will tag the check with a "Team L".  This will tag the check so the discussed percentage will be set aside for your fundraiser. 

This PDF file can be emailed, printed/handed out, sent through text, or posted on social media.  All we require is that your guest presents the flyer in some fashion.   We do not allow solicitation in front of the restaurant handing out flyers."

Daily Announcements 
Do you like to sing? Dance? Is acting your specialty?  Are you a talented artist?  If so, Performance Plus is for you.  This two-day workshop takes place at Wheaton Village on February 8th and 9th .   All Lakeside students are able to sign up for this activity.  There is a $40 fee to attend.  Please see Mrs. Gaudio in Y 133 to register.  Don’t delay – spots fill up quickly!
