PA supports MS learning in the round
As we lead up to ROAR, we continue to share stories about how the PA's fundraising makes a difference in the lives of our students and faculty. Last year the PA allocated $120,000 to its Tools for the Job fund, and about $30,000 of that was granted for Middle School (MS) projects. The MS languages department received funds to purchase language books for use in the classroom, and round rugs to support a pedagogy of working in a circle in language classes. MS languages department head Mirta Blat sent a note of appreciation to the PA from her department. Read more...

What makes America "Home of the Brave"?
Consider the courage it takes to leave your country and start over in a new land. We are all immigrants, moving between communities...even starting as a new student at Lakeside. The Parents Association's T.J. Vassar Diversity and Community Committee invites parents and guardians to a discussion of "Home of the Brave" by Katherine Applegate (copies available in the PA office) on Wednesday, Nov. 12, 7-9 p.m. in the Upper School Refectory in the Wright Community Center. The book follows a young boy's experience of leaving Africa and immigrating to America. Discussion will be facilitated by Lakeside parents and guardians. Questions? Please contact Martha Draves or Geeta Teredesai. RSVP is helpful, but not required.

(Anti)social media?
Where is the line between social media and anti-social media? Whether your student’s “media of choice” is email (joke!), texting, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, or all of the above, come to the PA-sponsored lecture on Nov. 19 at 7 p.m. in the Kent Evans Auditorium to learn from Dr. Megan Moreno, author of "Sex, Drugs ‘n Facebook," about whether your student (or their parent or guardian) exhibits any of the hallmarks of problematic Internet use. Hint: The answer is likely yes, you are in good company, and there are steps we can all take to promote more balance in our lives. The lecture will be preceded by appetizers, beginning at 6:30 p.m. Your RSVP here is requested, though not required. 

Rummage survey update
Many thanks to the 227 members of the Lakeside community who completed the recent Rummage survey. The 38 pages of thoughtful comments, including both praises and constructive suggestions about how to improve, will be used to refine current operations and inform our planning for the future. While our goals for participation were handily surpassed, the survey will remain open through midnight Sunday, Nov. 2, if you'd still like to share your view. Click here for the survey.
