The Foundation is pleased to support a wide variety of student interests and needs with our Fall Grants. $1,000 was awarded to the Exceptional Education Department to provide adaptive PE equipment. The Science Department received $444 for curriculum resources. The Music Department received $680 to pay the application fees for band and chorus students to attend Georgia Music Educators' Association Large Group Performance Evaluation. Your financial support of the Lakeside Foundation allows us to provide grants to support academics, athletics, and the arts at Lakeside.
A crowd of Vikings from the past, present, and future met at Tucker Brewing Company on October 19th for the Lakeside Foundation's first annual Spirit Night. When the tabs were settled, the Lakeside Foundation received $945 to provide scholarships, classroom grants, facility improvements, professional development, and more to our fantastic Lakeside students and staff. Thanks for supporting a good cause with your patronage. See you there next year!
The Lakeside Foundation is honored to be the recipient of two generous donations to support humanitarian efforts at Lakeside. An anonymous local business awarded $5,000 to combat food insecurity. Grocery store gift card distribution by the school social worker before the Thanksgiving and Winter school breaks, will ensure that selected students who ordinarily eat breakfast and lunch at school would not go hungry while school is closed. Additionally, the Olive Foundation granted $5,000 to support humanitarian efforts at Lakeside. The grant will allow us to continue to stock the Care Closet with Winter Essentials for students, including coats, hats, gloves, and warm socks. The Care Closet also provides school supplies, personal hygiene items, non-perishable food, and clothing for students in need. These generous gifts, along with donations from parents and community members, will allow the Lakeside Foundation to meet the needs of our student body, ensuring that students have the tangible support they need to make learning possible.
