Parents and Guardians

It's official! We've changed our name!
2/5/2016
We’ve changed our name, but we are still the same great organization! At the Parents Association general membership meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 2, the members officially voted to change the name of our organization to the Parents and Guardians Association. We also voted to create three new positions on our executive committee: VP for communications, VP for equity and inclusion, and VP for volunteer engagement. These changes are all a part of our focus on equity and inclusion, designed to help our Parents and Guardians Association be more inclusive and consistent with current practices at Lakeside and peer institutions.

Book Depot presale on Feb. 11
2/5/2016
Please join us in the Lakeside Book Depot (located in the brown portable directly behind St. Nicks) on Thursday, Feb. 11, 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. for our first ever Rummage book presale. We have more books than we can take to the official sale in March, so we are looking to YOU to help us move our inventory. With excellent selections in many categories and a particularly large selection of children’s books, adult fiction, and cookbooks, we are offering fabulous deals at 50% of Rummage Sale prices! Students are encouraged to shop but must bring cash or checks as we won’t be able to charge to student accounts. All shoppers please note: the Book Depot can only accept cash or checks. Shop early and shop often!

Help build next year's PA team!
1/22/2016
Every January, Lakeside’s PA nominations committee starts to build the volunteer team for the next academic year. To do this, we need everyone’s help! Please take five minutes to answer our five short survey questions to let us know how you would like to participate, and submit the survey by Thursday, Jan. 28. We also invite you to recommend other parents and guardians, who you believe would be fun to work with and who are (or might be) dedicated volunteers. Rest assured that this survey does not commit you (or anyone else) to anything specific. It just helps us match our needs to your individual interests and passions. To learn more about specific volunteer roles, please click here to view job descriptions. If you have any questions or need more information, please feel free to contact Nominations Chair Maria B.
