Back-to-School Picnic on Sept. 9 and fall tailgate on Sept. 16

Lakeside students, families, faculty, and staff have a chance to come together at two celebratory events this September.

Friday, Sept. 9 marks the third annual Back-to-School Picnic (formerly Bash), where everyone can celebrate the beginning of the new school year. The event runs from 5:30 to 8 p.m. on the Upper School campus and includes a potluck dinner and entertainment. It's co-hosted by the all-school diversity committee and the Parents and Guardians Association. Learn more here. Please note that the picnic will be followed by the first Upper School dance of the year (for students only).

The fall tailgate takes place the following Friday, Sept. 16, from 3:30 to 6 p.m. Put on your maroon and gold and come together for a free barbecue, pre-game music, giveaways, and logowear sale on the Lakeside Upper School quad. Most importantly, cheer on the Lakeside's girls varsity soccer team as they take on Holy Names Academy, starting at 3:30 p.m. on Parsons Field.
