Calling all alumni

Share your tales out of school! 

The fall 2019 issue of Lakeside magazine will commemorate Lakeside School’s 100th anniversary. For a special edition of class notes, we’re inviting all Lakeside and St. Nicholas alumni to share not current news but rather a memory from your time as students – the funniest or strangest thing that happened to you in school; a story of friendship; a formative classroom experience; a life lesson learned on the stage or playing field; an anecdote from an outdoor trip, etc.

Email memories and photos to by Aug. 1, 2019. If you can’t decide between two great memories, send them both! We’ll print as many in the centennial issue as we have room for. Thanks for sharing!
