Mom2Mom Sale is a Win for Sellers and Buyers

Mom2Mom Resales are a great way to control your budget when you are providing a wardrobe for children who are growing faster than they can wear out their clothes. Think of a cross between a flea market & a garage sale, and you'll have a Mom2Mom sale.

Kennedy Middle School's Parent Teacher Club is holding a Mom2Mom Sale on Saturday, April 27th beginning at 8:30 am. In addition to clothes, toys, and miscellaneous items that families have outgrown, it will feature a Dad Cave area which will include tools, sports, fishing, collectibles, camping, electronics, and superheroes!

Hair Donations for Wigs 4 Kids

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. Today 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.

Lake Shore Celebrates National Reading Month

Each year at the beginning of March, Lake Shore kicks off National Reading Month by motivating kids to read with several different initiatives. Elementary students are encouraged to document their reading with a reading log, visit a local library or bookstore to choose new books to read, read aloud to someone, and donate used books to one of our little free libraries.

With assistance from USPBL and Ribbi, our schools are participating in the USPBL Reading Program. This is an incentive driven reading program designed to encourage students to read more. The objective for each student is to “hit a home run” by meeting certain goals and requirements during the month of March.

In addition, students are excited about Guest Readers, who visit classrooms and share favorite stories. Superintendent Dr. DiPonio has already made an appearance! Lake Shore also participates in One School One Book (OSOB). OSOB is a movement designed to get an entire school community, including parents, involved in the joy reading by providing a copy of a selected book and encouraging families to read at home together.

Undefeated Shorians Win Again at 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 expect to surpass that number tonight, with a goal of $4,000. 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.

Formulating Scientific Arguments at Science Fair

Fourth grade students at Masonic Heights Elementary demonstrated their knowledge of formulating scientific arguments by presenting to family, peers, and teachers at the Science Fair. They began with a probing question, created a material list, designed a procedure, and through fact finding, came up with results. The unique topics ranged from Poppity Kern, Crystal Garden, Bloated Bears, Toothpaste, and Plants versus Beverages.

Dental Students Reinforce Tooth Defender Concepts

Dental students, along with stuffed dinosaur Larry, reminded their Kindergarten and First Grade "patients" about the importance of healthy eating habits and regular brushing and flossing. Elementary students shared stories about tooth loss, too! Seven-year-old Asher Duff lost another tooth during a presentation about tooth defender tips. These tips included brushing at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, brushing all top and bottom teeth! After the presentation, Asher visited Violet Elementary's office for a tooth case necklace to protect his lost tooth until he arrived home. 



First Time Choirs Received Top Division Ratings at Same Festival

Our Choir Directors, Mr. Smith and Mrs. Perryman, and the students they serve through the MSVMA Association are a group of the most talented kids. Fans want all of their autographs from the two-day District 16 Choral Festival performances which included Kennedy Middle School's Kennedy Singers performing The Little Birch Tree and The Jumblies and Lake Shore High School's Concert Choir performing Lake Isle of Innisfree and Festival Sanctus. Every group scored “1’s”.
