Fall 2019: "The Centennial Issue"

The 2019-2020 academic year represents the 100th anniversary of Lakeside School. Lakeside Magazine is marking the milestone through two special issues: a retrospective fall issue that looks back at the century that made Lakeside what it is today, and a forward-looking issue in the spring of 2020 that will explore Lakeside’s role in preparing students for the uncertainties and challenges of the school’s second century.

The fall issue feature “Lakeside Makes Its Move” – an account of the school’s pivotal (and formative) move to its current campus location in 1930 – is excerpted from the new centennial history written by Kathrine Beck and the staff of HistoryLink. Lakeside alumni and friends can purchase the richly illustrated, 232-page softcover book for $25 through the University Book Store.

The issue’s timeline history of Lakeside is drawn from the yearlong series of Instagram entries created by Leslie Schulyer, manager of the Jane Carlson Williams ’60 Archives at Lakeside. Check out the daily feed @archiveslakeside or the full timeline on the history and archives webpage.

One special Lakeside tradition featured in the fall issue is the annual “Senior Pet Day,” which has been a feel-good, stress-relieving event on the Upper School campus every spring since 1991. Seattle photographer (and current Lakeside parent) Katie M. Simmons brought her camera to the special day last June, and captured some memorable images of dogs and their owners.
