This is why we offer an opportunity for students to attend Summer School, SACC Summer Camp, Summer Culture Camp, KinderConnect and First Fundamentals Camp, Science Literacy Camp, and Math Mindset Summer Camp, Camp Invent.

#1) Lake Shore Graduation Celebrates One School, Unlimited Futures

There are 325 graduates embarking on the next chapter of their story. The hours of blood, sweat, and tears that you've put into Lake Shore hasn't gone unnoticed. 

Graduation is a milestone in anyone's life. It shouldn't matter what grade it is: Kindergarten, middle school, high school, college. It is absolutely important to encourage each other, and never stop learning. The Class of 2019 has a left a legacy of being the first to paint parking spots, have 19 students sign their letters-of-intent to play sports at the collegiate level, have accumulated over 1,350 hours of community service, and 148 Seniors have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or above. They chose the color pink, the lotus flower, and Life is a Highway by Rascal Flatts to represent them.

Approximately 3,500 f
amily members and friends were seated, with overflowing love in their hearts and homemade signs and flowers in their hands. Teachers, administrators, and board members marched alongside you to illustrate the fact that they have walked with you the entire way. Caps were decorated, a tradition that shows individual creativity, and then tossed in the air as a symbol of high school completion.You’re a Shorian, and you’re ready to continue making a difference. Congratulations to the Class of 2019!

#2) Lake Shore Shines at Moonbeams for Sweet Dreams

Lake Shore Public Schools participated in Moonbeams for Sweet Dreams! According to Kathleen Grobbel, Pediatric Family Advisory Chair, there was an estimated 1,300 people in attendance on Friday, December 14th at Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, at least 300 representing Lake Shore. It was an honor for the Lake Shore Family to show support for your Pediatric patients during the 2018 holiday season. We loaded 5 buses to capacity and met many others on location!  At 8 pm, pediatric patients will shine flashlights from the hospital windows and look for community members standing outside the hospital to flash them back. Thank you, Lake Shore, for bundling up in red and white attire, creating a poster, bringing a flashlight, and putting on a smile as we brightened a hospital stay for children during the holidays.

#3) Homecoming

Homecoming is a time to announce your Lake Shore pride. And after you’ve graduated, it’s a time to return to Saint Clair Shores and reminisce about your school days. The entire district enjoyed Homecoming festivities which included the Cartoon-themed parade beginning from Kennedy Middle School, following Greater Mack, and ending at Lake Shore High School, a winning Homecoming football game with a final score of 47-6 against Sterling Heights, securing a playoff spot for the first time since 2010, and a celebratory dance. Learn more about this win here.

#4) Courageous Shorians Take the Oath of Enlistment

At our 5th Annual United States Military Enlistment Ceremony held on May 15th, 12 Lake Shore High School students were recognized: Jack LaPinta and Caleb Snell, Michigan Air Guard, Justin Chambe and Julia Munger United States Air Force, Christzian Caza and Nicole Lorenz, United States Army, Matthew Janowiak, Michael Paras, Allexa Radcliffe, Gavin Smith, Eukhy StaAna, Myuana Wideman, United States Navy. With May being designated as Military Appreciation Month, it is appropriate that they honor these students today. The whole intent of the event was to honor, serve, remember, recognize, and appreciate those who served, are serving, and will serve this great country as part of the military. We celebrate the courage it takes to stand up and say “I will serve”. Thank you for your commitment to the protection and service of this great nation.

#5) Wigs4Kids

Twenty-three Lake Shore participants have chosen to have their hair cut off to help children who struggle deal with the social acceptance often based on their physical appearance. Senior Elizabeth Stacheit has organized and led this kind effort because she wants everyone to feel confident. She began marketing this cause at Lake Shore High School to her peers, and will donate 14 inches of her own hair. At an all-school assembly, volunteers from James Edwards Salon and Paul Mitchell were on stage, scissors in hand, ready to begin the cutting frenzy. Senior Ashley Daniels decided to donate on behalf of her deceased grandmother who battled brain cancer. Ashley witnessed her grandmother's hair loss, a symptom of radiation, while living under the same roof as her since 5th grade. Like Elizabeth, Ashley urges her peers to put others first, and choose to donate. On March 21st, we gratefully accepted enough donations to make about 2 wigs!

Maggie's Wigs 4 Kids Wellness Center and Salon is a local grassroots non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that provides wigs and support services at no charge to children and young adults experiencing hair loss due to cancer, alopecia, trichotillomania, burns and other disorders. Our wig recipients, also known as Ambassadors, range in age from 3 to 18, and are located throughout Michigan.

#6) Toys for Tots Collection

Kennedy Middle School students raised $2,875 for Toys for Tots in 2 weeks!

Sponsored by the National Junior Honor Society, they started with a lofty goal of $1,500. Obviously, this dollar figure wasn’t good enough as they surpassed it by $1,375. All purchased toys will be donated to Lighthouse Outreach in Roseville where they will provide them to families in the community. Thank you for your generosity, Clippers!

#7) Rodgers at LCA

For the second time, 42 Rodgers Rocketeers, under the direction of Mrs. Wischmeyer, performed the National Anthem at Little Caesar's Arena for the Harlem Globetrotters, represented by over 180 friends and family members who came to show support. They previously performed the National Anthem at Joe Louis Arena during Motor City Madness.

It was very special for the students to stand on the court and see the area from the view of famous athletes and performers. There even was some interaction with the Harlem Globetrotters! After the performance, students enjoyed the game, indulged in stadium food, and shopped for souvenirs.

#8) Kindergarten Roundup

Over 100 Class of 2032 students were given a warm welcome at our Kindergarten Roundup event. Our student leaders greeted our future Shorians. The leadership team, comprised of administrators and teachers, deserves credit for the planning of such an exciting event.

Students enjoyed the readiness activities, parents felt supported by welcoming staff members, and the energy encouraged smiles. All kids are truly the best part of our schools.

#10) Lake Shore Foundation's March Madness

Our loyal fans created posters, wore team colors, and shouted in support of their represented school during our March Madness Tournament on March 20th. Student-athletes run the scoreboard, sing, dance, and cheer to entertain our guests. The Lake Shore Foundation raised a total of $3,200 in 2018 through this teacher and staff basketball competition. Because of the large crowd, we surpassed that number tonight, with a total earnings of $3,500. Lake Shore Foundation’s Chairman, Jack Dick, reminds everyone that tonight was designed to bring the Lake Shore family together. The money, used helps students reach their goals of excellence by funding support for important educational activities not provided by the schools, is a bonus! Congratulations to our undefeated, back-to-back Lake Shore High School Champions with a final score of 26-14. 

The Foundation was established in 1986 for the purpose of using charitable contributions to benefit all Lake Shore Public Schools' students. Their mission is to help students reach their goals of excellence by funding support for important educational activities not provided by the schools.

Meet Up and Eat Up

In 2018, Lake Shore fed 571 breakfasts and 584 lunches during the first week of the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), a governmental program ensuring that children in lower-income areas could continue to receive nutritious meals during long school vacations, when they do not have access to the National School Lunch or School Breakfast Programs. The SFSP, also known as Meet Up and Eat Up, is operated at the local level by program Sponsors and is administered in Michigan by the Michigan Department of Education (MDE), Office of Health and Nutrition Services. Our goal is to surpass last year’s totals of 2,802 breakfasts and 2,902 lunches served.

At Masonic Heights Elementary, Violet Elementary, and North Lake High School, breakfast is served from 8-9:00 a.m. and lunch is served from 11-12:30 p.m. from July 8-August 8. We refuse to allow 3 out of 5 children to go hungry. Bon Appétit!
