Kindergarten Night at Lakeside
Lakeside is pleased to launch its Kindergarten Academy in 2014-15. Our new program will offer the same academic curriculum of years past, except will now include the young 5s of our community. The instruction will align with year 1 of the California Department of Education's guidelines for a 2-year kindergarten, also known as TK in some circles. Mrs. Wardell will instruct this class and offer the excellent tutelage for which she is well known.
All spaces for the 2014-15 school year are filled. Tours for the 2015-16 school year will begin in October of 2014.
