In October, Lakeside geared up for its annual Student Council Elections. Two new representatives from each fifth and sixth grade class were elected, as well as, the new executive board for the 2019-2020 school year. Speeches for the executive positions were delivered in the Lion’s Den in front of 160 fifth and six graders.
Nervousness was at an all-time high, but the candidates never let on. Amazing speeches were delivered and a new board was elected. The Lakeside Lions were thrilled to see Assemblyman Dave McDonough in the audience. He commented on how calm and well-spoken the candidates were. What a wonderful compliment from an actual elected official!
Once the new student council crew was in place, their hard work began. Weekly meetings were full of conversations about service projects and ideas about how to improve life at school. Keep your eye on the district website for stories about the amazing work that is going on at Lakeside!
