Thank you's

We can't believe the month of September is over!  Thank you everyone including administration, teachers, parents and students for contributing to such a great start to the year!


We would also like to thank all parents/guardians for volunteering their time to help with our first fun lunch!  It is always fun to see the students’ excitement when they walk into the class and see pizza!!  It was a huge success and the program would not be possible without our parent community!


Thank you to Danielle Rados (and daughter Vivian), Lynn Hood, Megan Mbao, Alysha Boss, Nicole Whitsitt, Christy Hryhoruk, and Scarlett Yum for helping to package and distribute the coupon books.

This has become one of our biggest events of the year!  You don't want to miss out.  This is a great activity to come have some fun, eat some great food and get to know more of our Lochside families!!  Costumes are encouraged!!!!!!!!!





One of the most popular events at the Halloween party is our annual cupcake walk.  Each year we ask families to donate 2 dozen regular sized cupcakes which will be used to give away during our walk.  Some families have made it a tradition to bake and decorate their halloween themed cupcakes!  It is always fun to see how creative everyone can be!!!!

We ask that the cupcakes are dropped off the morning of the Halloween party (October 19th) on the stage where they will be organized for the evening.  Please label all trays and/or containers.

Thank you!!



Do you shop at Country Grocer, Royal Oak?  If you do then "Save-A-Tape for Lochside".  LEPAC is raising funds for Lochside using the Country Grocer Save-A-Tape program.  Friends and Families of the Lochside Community can help by simply saving their register bills (the tape) and bringing it to school.  There is a box set up in the main foyer and large envelopes outside each classroom to collect the tape.  LEPAC will get 2% of all the tape collected.  It's just that easy!


Coupon Books

Thank you Lochside parents for the generous donations and for returning the coupon books nice and clean.  We have one more week to go and please keep our school’s good reputation.

Treasurer’s Report

LEPAC has healthy account balances with $29,219.50 in the General account and $125.92 in the Gaming Account.  Revenues were above projected of $28,263.08 last school year.  This is in part due to 2 fundraisers (Silent Auction: $4,454.72 and Holiday Book Shop $498.25) and stronger than anticipated revenues from the Halloween Dance, Fun Lunch Sales, Movie Nights and School Supply Sales.  Please see the attached Treasurer’s Report for more information.
