In observance of Computer Science Week, students in the Merrick School District participate in the annual Hour of Code.

Lakeside Lions Collect Toys for Tots

Lakeside Lions Collect Toys for Tots thumbnail143972
Every holiday season, a local organization called Kiwanis sponsors a toy drive called Toys for Tots. Toys for Tots helps to bring the joy of the holidays to less fortunate children right in our own neighborhood. Lakeside School participated in this drive by collecting seven huge bags filled to the brim with toys! These toys, collected for children in need, will be distributed by Kiwanis to local kids.

The Lakeside Lions have been participating in this drive for many years. It always feels great to join in on such a worthy cause, especially when we know we will be making kids happy during the holiday season. We’re very proud to help The Merrick Kiwanis. Kids helping kids, there is no better way to celebrate the holidays! The Lakeside Lions wish you all a Happy Holiday Season and a Healthy New Year!

This year for the Coats for Kids Drive Levy Lakeside students collected a total of ten huge bags. We are proud to say that many people will stay warm this winter. Once the drive ended, we gave the coats to State Assemblyman Dave McDonough, who donated the coats to families in need. We have successfully worked with him for the past 10 years. We are happy to announce that Lakeside was the #1 contributor for this drive. We are so glad we participated in the Coats for Kids drive. It brings us joy to give back to our community by keeping families warm all winter long.

Operation Sweet Tooth

All year long, soldiers risk their lives for our country. Instead of being with their families for the holidays like us, they must stay where they are stationed. We think it is very important to give back with to them by donating some of over Halloween candy. The Lakeside Lions have collected 34 HUGE boxes of candy. That’s crazy! We worked with Scoop Ice Cream in Malverne NY, and the Elks Lodge in Seaford. We would like to give a big thank you to the men and women who risk their lives every day for our FREEDOM, and to everyone who donated candy during this drive.

Lakeside Holds Student Council Elections

Lakeside Holds Student Council Elections  thumbnail143006

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!

Chatterton Sixth-Grade Art Club

Students from Chatterton School’s sixth-grade art club supported this year’s Star Wars art show theme by collaborating to create the awesome giant sculptures you see here! They used a variety of media, such as plastic containers, newspapers, boxes, foam core, masking tape, plaster, cardboard and tempera paint. Justine Dujardin is the school art teacher and art club adviser.

May the Force be with you!

 


Levy Lakeside Art Club 

The Levy Lakeside fourth-, fifth- and sixth-grade art clubs continue to create wonderful works of art during their recess time. 

Fourth-graders created totem poles using recycled cardboard boxes, papier-mâché, paint and a variety of other materials.

Fifth-graders use recycled Styrofoam, plaster of Paris, paint and additional materials to create large sculptures that decorate school and district conference rooms, like this brightly colored llama. 

Sixth-graders collaborated on a large painted mural, this year selecting Winnie the Pooh as the theme.
