It is Not Okay!

The "It Is Not Okay" program was created in 2015 and has been in the Lakeside Union School District Elementary and Middle Schools from 2016 until present day. It is a program that creates awareness about setting personal boundaries and personal safety. It also has given the kids some tools to deal with uncomfortable situations and who to partner with, whether it is a teacher, pastor, parent or other trusted adult. We are very proud of this program and we hope that it continues to be in the Lakeside schools for a long time.

Lakeside Library – Even in this age of computers, iPads and iPhones there is still a need for public libraries. Not only do they provide books for learning and books to read for fun, there are computers for students and adults to use, special programs for adults, teens, and children, and help for patrons. The Lakeside library is small and old and they are planning to build a new larger and much better library that will hopefully open within the next two years for which they need to raise money.
