Drive for the Kids
"Drive for the Kids" will be held at Lakeshore School on Wednesday, August 29th during the Back to School Open House from 4-6.  Summit Automotive will provide the vehicles for the test drive event.  Each person 18 or older with a valid drivers license who test drives a vehicle will earn Lakeshore $20.  There is no sales pitch and the company does not contact you after the event.  There will be staff available if you have any questions.  It's a very easy way for our school to earn money.  Our goal is 250 drivers!  Tell your friends and relatives!

Incoming Kindergarteners Event
All families of incoming kindergarteners (even if you have had kids at Lakeshore before) are invited to a teddy bear picnic on Friday, August 24th from 11am-12pm.  Please meet in the lobby.  Incoming students should bring a lunch and their favorite stuffed animal.  Lunch will be eaten at the playground picnic tables and kids can play after while parents are attending the informational meeting.  Our principal, Ms. Barkovich, will be available to answer any questions you may have.

Open House
The back to school open house will be held on Wednesday, August 29th.  The classroom lists will be posted at 12pm on the front doors of the school.  The cafeteria will open at 4:00 with classrooms opening at 4:30.  In the cafeteria you will be able to put money into your child's lunch account, sign up for fall conferences, see a sneak peak of the PTO fall fundraiser or opt to "buyout" for the fundraiser, get information about scrip, sign up to help during the first week of school with lunch time and preview Spirit Wear.  Starting at 4:30 you can go into your child's classroom to meet the teacher, drop off supplies, pay school fees and sign up to be a room parent.

Open House Volunteers
We are looking for a couple of volunteers to help at various information tables during the back to school open house.  No experience is necessary.  If you can help out, please contact Paige LePine at  Thank you for your help!

Online registration is now open.  From the Fond du Lac School District website’s home page you can go the Families drop down menu and choose online registration to receive additional details and instructions.

Calling all potential ROOM PARENTS

The room parent this year will work with the teacher to organize individual room parties, be the direct communication link (between the school and PTO with the parents in your classroom) and work with the teacher on any other classroom projects or activities the teacher would like assistance with.  If you have any questions, please feel free to talk to the classroom teacher at Open House or Nicole Kamphuis (, the PTO parent representative that will be organizing the Room Parents for the 2018-2019 school year.  Thank you for considering this very fun and vital role for Lakeshore!
