Gratitude: The Quality/Feeling of Being Grateful/Thankful

Monday, October 30, 2017 - 14:05

Hello Homebase Students and Families!

November’s Homebase focus at Lake Middle School is “Gratitude” and many of our Homebase class discussions and activities are planned to support that focus in the month ahead! 

Being grateful is something we want to instill in our students each and every day.  We have so much to be grateful for here at Lake Middle School: Students and their families who are invested in education, Staff members who are committed to their students and their profession and a Community that values our schools. 

Just a reminder that Election Day is just a few days away!  This fall, South Washington County Schools has three referendum questions on the ballot, along with five school board seats.  Like 99% of school districts across Minnesota, we are funded, in part, by levies approved by our community.  If interested in additional information about the referendum, we encourage you to review the following link: and email if you have any questions.

Also, don’t forget to vote on Tuesday, November 7th! To find your polling location, please visit You can also vote early at a Washington County Service Center, on or before November 6th.

Finally, if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact your child's teacher at any time. Stop by during Fall Parent Teacher Conferences, scheduled for November 14th and 16th, We would love to meet and speak with you about your child! 

Have a GOLDEN month ahead!
