Mr. Mitchell




Dear Lakeside Parents,

April. How is it possible that we have arrived to April already? There are two obvious benefits from April having arrived: the snow appears to be receding and the sicknesses that plagued us for much of February and March seem to have run their course. Spring Break tends to curb the momentum of each.


March brought us Dr. Seuss Night, fifth & sixth graders traveling to Mobius, Parent/Teacher Conferences, Spring Break, and passage of the PWSD Levy. All were arguably a success. So much was packed into an abbreviated month of March. April will bring us Assessments, no shortened days, no holiday breaks and weather that is turning the corner. All bring new challenges to our school year. Kids are getting excited. Teachers are prepared for change. All other staff look forward to a normalized schedule.


Parent/Teacher Conferences for the third quarter are nearly done. A few conferences had to be rescheduled to accommodate parent schedule changes. Currently, of the 197 students at LES, 141 had a guardian attend a Parent/Teacher Conference. So our percentage of guardians attending conferences currently sits at 72% with 6 to 10 conferences rescheduled for this week. Whereas we see room for improvement, we were pleased with the attendance percentage. Well done to all. Hope to see you in our school on a frequent basis. You make a difference.

Russ Mitchell,
Lakeside Elementary School
