Lakeside Lightning,

It's All About Respect at LMS! 

Last week Lakeside Middle School spread the love by wearing red on Friday for heart health. Staff and students wore red and supported the lifesaving work being done by the American Heart Association.

This week is a little different celebration of hearts in a different way... Valentines Day! Be sure to get your candy grams that are on sale.

Just a reminder that there is No School on Friday, February, 14, 2020 for Staff Professional Development Day. There is no School on Monday, February 17, 2020 for Presidents Day. 



Black History Month 
We are also celebrating Black History Month. Each day on the announcements we share an interesting fact or innovation attributed to an African American. There are also class activities and projects that students are working on throughout the day. Check out this Black History Month video by elementary and Middle School Students:

Daily Announcements 
Our Black History Month fact today is Minnie Jocelyn Lee Elders was the first African American, and the second woman, to serve as the United States Surgeon General.

Any 8th grade student interested in Fall Cheer for the 2020 season? Tryouts will start at Senior High March 2nd at 3:30 pm in the senior high gym! Additional information will be left in the main office.

The National Junior Honor Society is now accepting applications for new members.  Any current 7th or 8th grade student who has maintained an 85 or above average in all subject areas for six consecutive marking periods is eligible to receive an application.  Please note the following important information:

February 3 - 7, 2020

Lakeside Lightning,

It's All About Respect at LMS! 

We hope that everyone enjoyed the Super Bowl and the commercials. This week is another busy week at LMS. Our basketball teams are in full swing with a few games this week. Be sure to check the calendar below for times. Students must be escorted by an adult at all sporting events.

We are looking forward to celebrating African American History Month through various activities this month.  Each day, students and staff will hear interesting facts over the announcements. In addition, staff will integrate lessons and learning opportunities to expose our students to diversity.

Golden Spoon Award - Each year the LMS Staff has the Souper Bowl. The winner gets the Golden Spoon Award. This year's winner is .... Mrs. Salvati! She won for making a very yummy Chicken Pot Pie Soup.
Mrs. Salvati is on a streak of winning events at LMS
