Are you mad for science? If so, Join Lakeside’s Mad Scientist Club! From August 28 to December 18, students will meet with Ms. Chambers every Tuesday, 3:30-4:30 p.m., in the MPR. Open to grades 1-4, limited spots available.
Does your child have a cell phone? The odds are the answer is “Yes.” Statistics show that 56 percent of children 8-12 have a cell phone. It’s difficult to think of a product or technology, designed for adults, that was so quickly and ubiquitously co-opted by kids. Of course, Mom and Dad have to buy the phones and pay the bills, but cell phones have become a necessity in many kids’ lives.
Parents are invited to join their student for a pancake breakfast, courtesy of La Paloma Lakeside, on August 22, 7:30-8:15 a.m. Because it starts early, parents and students can wear pajamas if they wish. Students who participate can stay in their PJs all day, as long as they promise not to fall asleep in class.
Thanks to Yvonne Walker, Alorica’s Operations Manager in Tucson, Lakeside is the proud recipient of 45 new backpacks filled with school supplies. Yvonne’s team at Alorica had a contest to see who could donate the most supplies, and she and her team were happy and excited to be able to help so many kids at the start of a new school year.
