An Independent School • Grades 5-12

Parents and Guardians Association

Posted May 11, 2022

Thank you to all our wonderful volunteers for supporting the PGA, Lakeside School, and our students! We are grateful for your service during the 2021-2022 school year.

For the latest PGA events, please read the May Pawprint resource guide which was emailed to parents and guardians on May 2, 2022. The next issue will be emailed to 2022-23 parents and guardians by late June.

How to thank and send-off Bernie Noe - deadline May 31

After serving as Head of School for 23 years, Bernie Noe will be retiring at the end of this school year. We invite all Lakeside families to contribute a message of gratitude on a special, online group card Kudoboard. If you have questions, please email or call 206-440-2931. The Kudoboard will be open until May 31, 2022.

GradGrams for the Class of 2022 (12th-graders) - deadline May 15

Click HERE to submit a GradGram to any Lakeside senior. GradGrams are short messages (about 125 words) to any Lakeside senior; they are more like a tweet or social media post than a traditional letter. The individual's messages will be assembled into a simple booklet for each senior. This program is free, managed by PGA volunteers, and is not a professional production shop. You may submit as many GradGrams as you wish, and you may forward the link to friends and family. The deadline to submit is May 15, 8 p.m. PST. This is a strict deadline with no exceptions.
