Summer World Cultural Camp

MOCI Graduation

Eleven students from the Class of 2018 graduated from the MOCI Special Education program. After our Band played Pomp and Circumstance, students received individual recognition from their senior mentors, spoke about their own favorite memories, watched a slideshow highlighting the year’s achievements, and were officially declared graduates with the moving of the tassel from right to left. Students looked beautiful, adorned in their graduation regalia, and celebrated this achievement with friends, family, cake, and a dance party!


Grant Secures New Playground

UnitedHealth executives, school leaders and Marvin Jones, Jr., met on the Rodgers Elementary playground this morning to dedicate newly donated equipment and enjoy the beautification.

Marvin Lewis Jones Jr. is an American football wide receiver for the Detroit Lions of the National Football League. In his message to all 500 elementary students, he reminded them about the importance of physical activity. He quoted, “It is very important to get out there, play and stay active, because if I didn’t, I wouldn’t be where I am now."

The project was made possible by a $22,000 grant from UnitedHealthcare to Jones’ Dreambuilders program. They were joined by Playworks, which teams up with companies and volunteer groups to improve children’s health and well-being by increasing opportunities for physical activity and safe, meaningful play at school. Jones will be at the school with UnitedHealthcare leaders, employee volunteers and students to install the new equipment and clean and beautify the grounds.


Pasta for Patients

Mrs. Gough's 6th Hour winning class presented a check to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. During a two week cash and coin donation period, Kennedy Middle School raised $2,681.68 for Pasta for Patients.

Lake Shore gives back to our community on an ongoing basis throughout the school year.  In addition to Pasta for Patients, we collect blood donations for the American Red Cross, make shoe donations, sell puzzle pieces for Autism, collect household supplies for MCREST, participate in Adopt a Family, and promote a greener world at Nautical Cleanup. 


Spring Brings Sounds of Musicals

Lake Shore thespians take the stage at all ages and continue to entertain our community with Tony Award quality.

Audiences watched Dorothy and Alice work together to defeat the Queen of Hearts and get back home in Lake Kennedy Middle School's this lighthearted play, Dorothy in Wonderland. 
Rodgers Elementary’s Drama Club performed Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. With musical numbers, classic storylines, and beautiful costumes and props, both shows were a hit! Lake Shore High School's 52 cast members, the most we have ever had in years, participated in this year's all-school musical, FAME!

Witnessing Artistry Happen at Exhibit

The K-12 District Art Show was the perfect place to witness artistry happen at Lake Shore. Students prepared drawings, paintings, ceramics, and digital art to display for the community. This exhibit featured 30 art pieces from each building, giving students a chance to show their talents and growth.

We would like to give special recognition to the following Advanced Placement students who showcased their portfolios: Leslie Govea-Mirelas, Lexi Vaughn, Ivan Skrtic, Shauna Strosser, Alayna Current, and Katy Lundy. These seniors have worked tirelessly to develop a portfolio that is personal to their individual talents and interests, while demonstrating mastery of drawing and design principles.

Masonic Participates in Red Wings Program

The Red Wings School Assembly program energized Masonic Heights students, helping them to understand the importance of healthy living and learn more about the sport of hockey. This free program provided motivational life skills messages, an exciting competition featuring students versus teachers, and two free sets of street hockey equipment. With only 115 schools selected per year, it was no surprised that this red and white district was a first-round pick!


Goal Exceeded at Jump Rope for Heart 

Rodgers Elementary celebrates at an assembly today for raising $6,523 for Jump Rope for Heart. Our personal goal of $6,000 was exceeded because of student participation. Down by $2,000 less than 24 hours ago, Mr. Pittinato announced to parents and students that they needed a nudge to meet their goal. Obviously, the call to action resulted in this special humanitarian achievement.

At the assembly, students showed off their jump roping skills, were awarded the newest banner and medals, and teachers played musical hoop chairs and egg roulette! Mr. Pittinato organizes this important fundraiser with help from Senior Youth Market Director Cheryl Muscott. Muscott shared, “I’m so proud of Lake Shore for their hard work. Year after year, Rodgers has beat the average total donation of $3,200 in Macomb County.” Congratulations to our top fundraiser Lilly Benson raising $620. Second and third place fundraisers were Melissa Ratliff with $536 and Michael Windemuth with $325.
