NHS Toy Drive:
Lakeside's chapter of the National Honor Society is holding a toy drive during the month of April for their group service project. Proceeds will go to the Children's Cancer Center, an organization that helps families with children suffering from cancer. Acceptable donations include newly purchased toys, teenage items (headphones, electronics, etc.), art sets, books, restaurant gift cards, gas cards, or monetary donations. You can send donations to the school with your students. Elementary students can bring donations to their classrooms, and upper school students can bring donations to their Bible classes. Donations will be accepted through April 30th. Your participation would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

FCAPPS Coach of the Year:
Congratulations to Coach James Coffman on being named Coach of the Year by FCAPPs state football conference!
Enrollment & Re-Enrollment:
Enrollment for new students and Re-enrollment for current students opens on February 1. New students should fill out an application by clicking on the Apply Now button to the right. Re-enrollment for current students should be completed through ParentsWeb. The re-enrollment link can be found under the Family Information section in ParentsWeb.
Upper School Textbook Policy:
Unless an E-Book is unavailable in a core academic class, all textbooks will remain in the classroom. In addition, students are not permitted to "check out" textbooks. Only those students who have received permission from administration will be issued a textbook. Parents requesting a textbook must sign this document stating the inability to access the internet from home.
The policy is in alignment with the strategic vision to move into a cloud-based, software-defined infrastructure. To prepare our faculty and students for this change, it is necessary to implement the new expectation immediately.
