STEM Day at LMS 
Lakeside Lightning,

It's All About Respect at LMS! 

Although we had a short week, LMS had a very productive week. We received a check for $10,000.00 from Corning Inc., to fund our partnership with Rowan College of New Jersey for our girls Full STEAM Ahead program. We are very grateful for this generous donation and partnership. For the Daily Journal article click here

We also hosted the annual STEM day on Tuesday. Our students were able to experience some of the STEM related class offerings from Millville High School such as advanced photography, coding, engineering and they even saw a pumpkin chucking. 

We hope that everyone had a awesome Thanksgiving break.
