Lakeside Lightning Round June 14 - 18, 2021

Mrs. Richardson's students exploring in class 

Lakeside Lightning,


We had over 600 students participate in our selection of the school theme for the 2021-22 school year. It was a close race, but in the end the new theme is..... 

Grow Through What You Go Through 


We believe that this theme will guide us as we return to school next year. The theme will allow us to go in so many directions with our activities, t-shirts, bulletin boars, videos, etc. We are very excited to get planning and ready for next year. 


Last week was our last full week of the school year. Our 8th graders did a fantastic job with their End of the Year Activities. Unfortunately, the rain hampered many of the planned activities for Friday, but the students still had fun. 


This week the 6th and 7th graders will be treated to some parting rewards and activities. Also, the students in 6th and 7th grade will be keeping their Chromebooks over the summer. Dr. Cook, Principal of Lakeside Middle School sent out a School Messenger that reviewed Anti-Cyberbullying efforts and resources for students and parents over the summer. In case you missed it, here is the link to the summer Anti-Cyberbullying resources (Click here). 


8th Grade Step Up 
Be sure to view the Step Up Procedures in the video below. We look forward to sending our 8th graders off to High School on Monday, June 14, 2021. Ceremony starts at 6:00 PM and cars are permitted to start entering LMS at 5:45 PM.

Lakeside Lightning, 

The School of Tomorrow, Today! 

We are entering into the last week full week of instruction for the 2020-21 school year. Although we do not normally do "count downs" it is obvious that this has been a very challenging year and many are seeking to get back to some normalcy in the post pandemic world. With that said, we still have things to accomplish this year and we are also seeking to make memories for our students. Grade levels and individual teachers have planned end of the year activities to honor the hard work of the students this year. Stay tuned for individual announcements in Google Classroom for more information.

  • Monday: Kick off! Wear your favorite sports team gear.

  • Tuesday: Proud to be the MHS Class of 2025-Wear your orange and blue!

  • Thursday: Twinning! Twin with a Peer Day.

  • Friday: LMS Class of 2021 Pride-wear your 8th-grade t-shirt. 

8th grade Step Up - Start Your Engines
