Welcome Back, we missed you!!

On behalf of our entire staff, I would like to welcome our new kindergarten students and our returning students to Lakeside School! Much planning, construction and hard work has gone into preparing over the summer for a successful school year.

I am thrilled to welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year and I am looking forward to meeting new faces, revisiting with familiar ones, as well as hearing all about your summer adventures! I am excited to begin my 2nd year with Lakeside and my 12th year in education. I look forward to partnering with you to make this a fabulous new school year!

All teachers and support staff have spent hours preparing materials, creating child-centered classrooms, attending classes, and reviewing data. Office staff have registered new students, put together online back to school forms, and organized new materials. Our custodial staff has worked hard to clean our classrooms and campus. Our college/summer help students have done a fabulous job preparing the campus.

I very much looking forward to watching the students come back to school on August 15th and to have the hallways filled with the hustle and bustle that has been absent all summer. Old friendships are quickly rekindled and new friendships made. Students swap stories about summer and show off new backpacks and school supplies.

Please know that I have an open-door policy and welcome any opportunity to meet with you. I am looking forward to our collaboration in providing a safe and nurturing environment as well as a challenging and diverse curriculum.

Remember, school starts on August 15th! School will begin at 8:20 am and end at 1:15 pm.

This will be a FABULOUS year!
