Dear Parents, Families & Friends,

I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful year at Lakeside and have already started to celebrate summer. 

Speaking of celebrations, I want to share some of our amazing celebrations from this year.  Our students learned about PBL (Project Based Learning) and were able to explore their content in a variety of ways.  Through their many PBLs, Lakeside learners partnered with Leukemia Texas, NASA, schools around Coppell as well as around the globe, The North Texas Food Bank, Coppell’s esteemed Mayor, and Pink Hearts Fund – just to name a few.  Our learners were able to demonstrate their skills as philanthropists, communicators, collaborators, digital citizens, and innovators this year. 

In addition to the many exciting opportunities PBL and digital tools have afforded us, our learners have been provided with the skills they need in order to demonstrate mastery on traditional assessments.  Lakeside learners achieved great success on the STAAR test this year and demonstrated strong growth on the MAP test as well.  Because of these experiences, our kids are better prepared to pursue their future with enthusiasm, knowledge, and confidence. 

As we look forward to the 2014-2015 school year, I want to make you aware of what is on the horizon for us at Lakeside.  We will continue to engage in rigorous instructional practices that incorporate digital tools and PBL.  We will focus on customizing instruction for our learners through instructional clusters and departmentalized sections.  We will continue to partner with our families and continue our monthly Learning Walks.  I know that with your partnership, Lakeside will continue to be an outstanding campus in Coppell and beyond.

As you prepare for the new year I want to be sure you are aware of some important events and timelines.
