Welcome to the 2018-2019 School Year!

We look forward to seeing you at the Open House on Wednesday!

Drive for the Kids

Summit Automotive Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram will have a tent outside during Open House on August 29th and will be donating $20 to Lakeshore for EACH person who takes a 2-minute test drive. (Over to the high school and back is fine!) This is a no-pressure, just for fun, fundraising opportunity for Lakeshore. The intent is for you to have a good experience with Summit, and maybe in the future when you need a new vehicle, you may think back to your positive experience with them.

Our goal is to have 250 test drives, which would give us the chance to earn up to $5,000. The money goes directly to Lakeshore PTO, which helps support our students with things like playground equipment, technology, books, subscriptions, and special events that help give our kids the best education as possible!
