We continue to celebrate all of the great lessons and activities taking place in our schools. Here, in the Student Corner, we hear from our students in their own voices.
“The Student Council Crew of Lakeside would like to say a HUGE thank you to all the Lion Families for sending in items for our collection for Bobbi and the Strays. Bobbi and the Strays is a local animal shelter who has cats and dogs that can be adopted. The furry pets live there until they find their FOREVER HOME! Some of the items we collected were: Old towels, spray disinfectant, kitty litter, wee wee pads, and cat/dog treats. In addition, some of the Lakeside Lions brought in items that Bobbi and the Strays weren’t able to use. These items were donated to the Nassau County Animal Shelter. Thanks to everyone’s generosity, we were able to help out many of our furry friends!”

“This year has been a difficult one for many people. Each year the Lakeside Student Council hosts a dance-a-thon. Typically, the 4-6th graders raise money for two chosen charities. Since a dance-a-thon was not permitted this year, the crew wanted to still donate to two charities. It was decided that we would donate $400 from our own account. We decided to donate $200 to The Ronald McDonald House. The Ronald McDonald House provides all the comforts of home to family members when their children are hospitalized and they are far from home. The second charity we donated $200 to is St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. St. Jude is a hospital that focuses on the care of children with life threatening illnesses. The doctors there also conduct research so they can find cures for many of the diseases. We are sure both charities will put our money to good use. Even in rough times, the Lakeside Lions are very proud to help in every way possible! ROAR!!!!
