2019 Warrior Winter Dance Clinic for K-8 will be held Sunday, February 10 from 1-3:30 PM.  Registration forms are in the kiosk, or go to Lakeside’s web site and look under K-8 at llhs.org.

K-8 Extra footwear – We are asking that all students bring an extra pair of footwear to school for recess. It really helps in keeping the rooms and church clean when we can minimize the muddy traffic areas.

Annual Voters’ Meeting is Sunday, February 3 at 11:45 AM. Committee reports, highlights of ministry programs and election of officers is the business of the day.

Preschool Open House/Registration

You are invited to our annual open house on Thursday, January 31 from 6:00-7:00 p.m. Come check out the classrooms and see the teachers. 

Basketball Etiquette Reminder – Parents of younger children, if your child is not in the gym watching the game, we ask that they be supervised by a parent. The hallway is too crowded to have students running the hallway. Come cheer on the teams.

YEARBOOK PHOTOS: As we begin another school year we would like to collect photographs for consideration for the yearbook.  Please email pictures to our committee at yearbookspl@gmail.com. Photographs of sporting events, music events, class parties, school events, every day classroom events, etc. would be appreciated.
