Dear Parents, Families & Friends,
Happy New Year and Welcome Back!
I hope you all had a wonderful winter break and were able to enjoy some family time.
As we approach the midpoint of the school year I’d like to take this opportunity to highlight how Lakeside is working towards meeting the needs of our learners. Lakeside is a Digital School of Communication. Our learners are provided with a rigorous instructional program that incorporates digital tools, 21st century soft skills, and PBL (Project Based Learning) where learners have the opportunity to master content in a relevant way.

The 21st century focus at Lakeside does not stop at the integration of meaningful soft skills. Lakeside learners are surrounded by instructional media that they use to communicate with the world around them, collaborate with peers, create multimedia presentations, and critically evaluate information from global sources. Lakeside learners and educators have access to an ample supply of current technology from a variety of platforms. Each homeroom has an interactive smart board and available computers for learners to use. Grade levels have access to netbooks, laptops, two computer labs, Macbooks, iPads, iPods, and participate in virtual learning experiences on a regular basis. Our learners are preparing for the world of tomorrow and mastering the tools of today.
