Picture Retake Day
Picture retake day will be first thing in the morning on Tuesday for any student or staff that was absent or if you are unsatisfied with your pictures.  Please note that retakes are free ONLY if the child's eyes are half closed or closed completely.  The original has to be returned on retake day to ensure the exchange of old for new.  If you are just not happy with how they turned out, you can return the pictures and have retakes taken for half of the original package price.  Please keep in mind if your child is absent on retake day or you prefer the photograph gets taken in your presence, you can contact Quick and Smart Studio at (920)926-0948  and have them taken there.  If you have any questions please contact Danielle Muellenbach at or (920)579-1662.

Staff Appreciation Luncheon
The PTO will be putting together a luncheon on Thursday for the entire staff.  Funding for this luncheon comes from the generosity of our Lakeshore parents, and we are still in need of more donations to cover the costs of our event.  Anyone wishing to donate money towards the luncheon may do so by sending cash or checks made payable to Lakeshore PTO.  Please place funds in an envelope marked PTO Luncheon.  Help us make it great!

Family Reading Night
Family Reading Night is coming up on Thursday, November 30th. Join us from 5:30-7:30 for teachers reading holiday stories, Santa, cookies and hot chocolate and family photo sessions with Nickabella Photography.  Be sure to stop in to our Holiday Book Fair from 3-8.  We are looking for cookie donations for this event.  If you are able to help out, please sign up at the link below or email Shelly Nelson at

Family Fun Night at Rocky Rococo and Fond du Lac Movie Theater

Scrip for the Holidays
Don't forget gift cards make great gifts for the holidays!  Save yourself some running this holiday season! Order gift cards through Scrip and the cards will be sent home with your child or available to pick up right at Lakeshore.  Your purchases generate income for Lakeshore PTO and YOU!  Scrip has many options available for local and national vendors.  An order form can only contain so much information. If you are looking for a vendor that you don't see you can look at for a full list of national vendors or contact Shelly at to check if gift cards are available.

The order dates for the rest of the year are November 9th, November 21st, November 30th, December 7th and December 14th.  Orders are available to be sent home or picked up the Thursday after the order date. 

Thursday is the last order that will be sent home before Black Friday or Cyber Monday if you wish to purchase scrip to use for those sales.

For more information on scrip and instructions on how to place an order, please see the link below.

~Lakeshore will be competing against other elementary schools to be the 2017 Outstanding Red Kettle Bellringing Team!  All money raised will be used to fund the Salvation Army's programs that many of our families utilize.  The team who signs up for the most bell ringing shifts wins and will receive a traveling trophy.  To participate you will need to sign up for an available shift by going to, click on "Opportunities" tab, search the bell ringing options and select a shift.  To login the username is Lakeshore Elementary and the password is lakeshore lions.

~A reminder from Ms. Olson: Jump Rope for Heart envelopes were handed out and they are due back on Tuesday. Instructions on how to register online along with the monster tattoo were given to the students. Download the app to your phone and hover over the monster tattoo to make it dance! The K-2 classroom and the 3-5 classroom with the most money raised will get 2 free recesses! If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Olson.

~Thank you to everyone who turned in Box Tops!  We earned around $700 for our school!  Keep saving for our next collection in February.  The winners of the Box Tops contest were Carissa Bell, Briggs Barfknecht and August Tate.  Thank you to Shauna for her hard work on this program!
