 Mr. Dais Call

This past Sunday, Mr. Dais received a divine call to Faith Lutheran School in Tacoma Washington. The call is to teach 5-6th grade along with the extra duties of athletic director and technology. Please keep Mr. and Mrs. Dais in your prayers as he contemplates where he should best use his talents.

Once a student receives a Wisconsin Parental Choice Program (WPCP) voucher, the voucher is renewable for three additional years. Renewal is relatively easy.

The parent/guardian logs back into the same site that (s)he did the first time and answers the required questions. There is no need to prove financial eligibility for renewal. The state assumes the family’s financial eligibility based on the initial application.

Most WPCP applicants report that reapplication takes far less time than first-time application - just a few minutes. Once reapplication is complete, most applicants send a proof-of-residency document to Lakeside with the student for verification. No meeting is necessary. Lakeside sends an email to the parent/guardian once verification is complete.

Like first-time applicants, the parent/guardian of students in their second, third, or fourth year will receive notification in June from the state Department of Public Instruction that the voucher is renewed. The parent/guardian should follow the directions in an email that Lakeside sends to its WPCP families in May.

This is the final week for application and reapplication to the WPCP for 2018-2019. Applications must be completed by this Friday, April 20, and all necessary documents must be at Lakeside the same day.

For further information how the WPCP may serve your family, contact Principal Grasby at Lakeside (920-648-2321).


Yearbook Committee: We will have a work day tomorrow, Wednesday 4/18.

The annual Lakeside Math Competition for 5th-8th graders will be held on Wednesday, April 25, 2018.  The competition begins at 4:00 and usually wraps up around 5:30.  All students are encouraged to consider participating using their God-given talents and abilities.  Please remember that this is examination night for the eighth grade students being confirmed at St. Paul. Students compete both as individuals and as part of a six person team.  We are planning on fielding several teams at both the 5-6 grade and 7-8 grade levels.

We will also hold two optional practices: one on April 11 and the other on April 18.  They will go from 3:15 to 4:30.  if you have any questions please contact Mrs. Enger or Mrs. Struck.

LLHS Drama presents The Nifty Fifties, a Musical Comedy

It was the fifties. Captain Midnight decoder rings and hula hoops. Teenage girls dressed in poodle skirts with bobby socks and saddle shoes. Teenage boys imitating Marlon Brando’s black boots and black motorcycle jacket or James Dean’s blue jeans and a white t-shirt. Elvis on the Ed Sullivan show. American Bandstand. And, of course, there was a place in every town where kids would gather to have a coke and some fries after school, while listening to the jukebox.

Our story begins in a place just like that. Your LLHS is staging a vintage 50s musical that will have you cheering! Advance tickets available online (start at or by calling 800-838-3006. Call or e-mail the LLHS office with questions 920-648-2321 •
