An Independent School • Grades 5-12

Alumni Board

The Lakeside/St. Nicholas Alumni Board works to assist Lakeside School in creating and maintaining a vibrant and engaged greater Lakeside alumni community. Its volunteer membership meets monthly throughout the school year to explore ways for alumni to stay connected to one another and to Lakeside.

Each member signs on for a three-year term and serves on one of three committees.

  • The activities committee plans events and activities, including Alumni Cooking Classes, Beers with Bernie for young alumni, and community service.
  • The mission and governance committee chooses the Distinguished Alumni Award winner and recruits new board members.
  • The connections committee works to build connections within our alumni and school communities.

Alumni board members hear regularly from guest speakers including students, teachers, and administrators. They also have the opportunity to attend annual “visit days” where they sit in on classes at the Upper and Middle schools.

To contact the Alumni Board or to learn more, email the alumni relations office at or call 206-440-2730.
