Mr. Hand bringing history alive! 
Lakeside Lightning,

It's All About Respect at LMS! 


We completed our first full week of 2019! There were so many great things going on throughout the school. One of the most notable areas for our school was the Lightning Bots. The Lakeside Lightning Bots competed in their qualifier on Saturday January 12th and placed 7th overall for their robot. They received many compliments from the judges on their project, but most importantly their core values. We are so proud of Max, Oliver, Jayvin, Riley, Chet, Logan, Joshua, Lorenzo, and Tadden for all of their hard work this season! Thank you to Mrs. Salvati and Ms. Carroll for their hard work as the Lightning Bots advisors.


The first 2019 PTO meeting is being held this Wednesday at 5 p.m. in the Lakeside Art Room. Enter through the art room ramp on the Genesis side of the building near bus lot A. If you'd like to be included on the agenda, contact Mrs. Salvati by Tuesday evening via email.
See you there!

Lakeside Lightning,

It's All About Respect at LMS! 

This is our first full week of 2019. Last week the staff and students were able to get back into the routine of Lakeside Middle School. Our teachers did a great job of welcoming back the students and reviewing expectations as well as reflecting on the first part of the year.

Our marking period ends on January 29 and the students have off on January 30. Starting on January 31, the staff will be doing another (modified) version of the First Three Days called "The Next Three Days."

LMS Staff Meeting was "decorative" 
Lakeside Lightning,

It's All About Respect at LMS! 

Happy New Year from the staff at Lakeside Middle School. We hope that you enjoyed the Winter Break. It was very much needed for the staff and the students.

Prior to the Winter Break we had a bunch of very amazing activities at Lakeside. On Monday, December 17, 2018 our AVID team hosted the Holistic Life Foundation. The Holistic Life Foundation is a Baltimore-based 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization committed to nurturing the wellness of children and adults in underserved communities. Through a comprehensive approach which helps children develop their inner lives through yoga, mindfulness, and self-care HLF demonstrates deep commitment to learning, community, and stewardship of the environment. HLF is also committed to developing high-quality evidence based programs and curriculum to improve community well-being. 

Mrs. Pettit won the Ugly Sweater Contest
On Wednesday, our staff took some time to work collaborative as well as have a relaxed staff meeting. This effort was coordinated by our teachers and it was a huge success!

On Thursday, December 20, 2018 Lakeside Middle School hosted the second annual STEM Day. The purpose of the STEM Day is to expose students to the various programs offered at Millville High School. Big thanks to Mr. Barber for coordinating the event! Be sure to check out the SNJ article and video (click here). 

On Friday, December 21, 2018 our PBSIS committee raised 334 dollars for Pajama Day. Since it was 1 dollar to participate we had about 1/3 of our students wear their pajamas! They also hosted the Bagels and Board Games as a reward to those students who continue to earn Zaps for being safe, respectful, responsible and good learners.
