Principal’s Message

Dear Lakeside Families,

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year at Lakeside Elementary! This year’s theme is “Dive Into Learning.” Although the year may look different, our goals remain the same. Our staff and students will dive into learning that supports social-emotional and academic growth, preparing our students to be #Lifeready.

Our staff will strive each day to create a virtual classroom that mirrors face-to-face learning. Students will start their day with morning meeting, giving them an opportunity to connect with their teacher and classmates. Academic lessons will include whole group and small group opportunities, providing differentiated instruction for each student. Time will also be devoted to LAMPs (Library, Art, Music, P.E.), recess, and brain breaks throughout the day. Infused in all these areas will remain our focus on the Henrico Learner Profile and the 6 C’s- collaboration, communication, critical thinking, creative thinking, global citizenship, and quality character.

In order to support students in their virtual learning, Lakeside released a virtual supply list for families and will provide each student with a Distance Learning Kit. These kits will be available on Thursday, September 3 during our Drive Through Open House. Your child will have the opportunity to pick up a kit and meet his/her teacher. In addition to our distance learning kits, our wonderful PTA will provide each student with a learning kit.
