|Back-to-school events: Aug. & Sept. 2015|
It might seem early to think about next year, but here are a few events for your calendar. Faculty and staff will thank you for bringing food or volunteering at the APPLE back-to-school luncheon on Monday, Aug. 31. The next two days will bring the PA welcome coffees, Sept. 1 at the Upper School and Sept. 2 at the Middle School. Both coffees will be held during new student orientations on the two campuses. The entire US and the 8th grade start school on Wednesday, Sept. 2, and the rest of the MS starts on Thursday, Sept. 3. Also on Sept. 3, all students will gather for convocation and a PA-sponsored Fizz (informal gathering, treats provided) at the end of the school day. All of this will happen before the Labor Day break from classes on Monday, Sept. 7. Also, please save the dates for two all-school celebrations: the Back-to-School Bash on Friday, Sept. 11, and the fall tailgate on Friday, Sept. 18. Click here

|A fond farewell|
The APPLE co-chairs wish to express our gratitude to everyone who participated in the APPLE (Appreciative Parent Program to Laud Educators) Farewell event for faculty and staff on May 28. Whether you contributed by donating sweet treats, fruit platters, international appetizers, setting up, cleaning up, or spreading the word, your contributions were greatly appreciated! The event was a nice way for our wonderful faculty and staff to kick off the summer. The next APPLE event will take place on Aug. 31, 2015. Have a great summer!
|Book buyback a win for everyone|
Remind your student to take advantage of the June book buyback program. When a qualifying used book is repurchased in the fall, the original owner's account is credited up to 80% of the original purchase price, depending on condition. Plus, 20% of the buyback proceeds are contributed to the Parents Association which are then allocated to programs supporting all Lakeside students and families. Which books qualify? When and where do you hand them in? Click here

|DCC seeking volunteers|
The PA's T.J. Vassar Diversity and Community Committee (DCC) is seeking interested parents and guardians to help with the committee's important and exciting work. The DCC will be planning three diversity-related events for parents and guardians and the school community in general during the 2015-16 school year, including the 2015 Back-to-School Bash, and would like to hold a planning meeting in June. Please let us know if you are interested by contacting incoming DCC Co-chair Miranda C.
|Sending off the Lakeside Class of 2015|
As the class of 2015 gets ready to graduate on June 11, we wish them (and their parents and guardians) well! The PA does lots of nice things to celebrate the graduating class, such as sponsoring social events for the seniors and receptions for families, as well as assembling GradGram booklets and creating a senior photo display in the Wright Community Center. The senior prom, which took place last weekend, was a magical event. Thanks to Prom co-chairs Sara H., Lori H., Suraiya K., and Joan O. for creating a wonderful night (and morning) for the students.
