It looks like winter is finally upon us here at Lakes Middle School.  The forecast is clear and cold right now, but judging by the last week of September and the first week of October, we are in for a snowy season in Coeur d’Alene.   I am a big fan of snow, but limited quantities in town would sure make getting to school every day a little easier.  Be sure your students are dressed appropriately for the cold days ahead of us. What a start to the 2022-2023 school year we have experienced so far.  

As we wrap up the wrestling season, we move into band and choir concerts throughout the months ahead and throw in 7th grade girls and boys basketball games. 

We are 4 weeks away from Thanksgiving.  If you haven’t checked Family Access in Skyward lately, now would be a great time to do so.  If you notice your student is missing assignments or hasn’t done so well on assessments, we provide ample opportunities to make up for those missed assignments and also to retake tests.  Please encourage your students to take advantage of these opportunities.

Thank you for everything you do to support Lakes Middle School,

Jeff Bengtson
