Lakeside Lions Collect Toys for Tots
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!

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.
