Lake Middle School AVID Students Give Back

8th grade Lake Middle School AVID students made boy themed tie blankets and cards for kids to donate to Gillette's Hospital.  In addition, the Drew Macke Foundation donated $200.00 worth of Dairy Queen gift cards (Drew is an AVID student at Lake Middle School who has benefited from the kindness of others during his hospitalizations.)  A $5.00 DQ gift card was placed in each of the cards students created.  AVID student leaders delivered the cards and tie blankets on Tuesday, June 10th with their AVID teacher Mrs. Casey Tody!   

This year’s 8th grade class determined their themed t-shirt for the end of the school year to read “We’re Kind of a Big Deal – Class of 2018!” As a staff, we agree---this group of students have been “kind of a big deal” and we will truly miss them! The link below brings you to a website where you can preview (and order if you wish) pictures that were taken during the 8th grade celebration boat trip on the St. Croix River! A VERY special thank you to Lake Middle School’s PTA for sponsoring the 8th grade boat trip.
