Dont wait until its too late

As a service to the school, the Lakeside PTO provides each family an opportunity to purchase their students’ supplies with just the click of a mouse through the PTO website. This is not a fundraiser for the PTO; we are simply streamlining the process and saving you a ton of time!

To order your child’s school supply pack for the 2018-2019 school year, please click here and click on “School Supplies”. Pre-ordered school supplies will be delivered to your child’s classroom on Meet the Teacher night.

NEW THIS YEAR: If you choose to SHOP for SCHOOL SUPPLIES ON YOUR OWN you are STILL REQUIRED to purchase a sketch pad for art class THROUGH THE PTO. You may pre-order the sketch pads now through the PTO website (the pre-ordered sketch pads will be delivered to your child’s classroom on Meet the Teacher night), or you can wait and purchase them from the Lakeside front office during the first week of the 2018-2019 school year. The price is $2.50, which reflects not only the cost of the sketch pad itself but also a tiny portion of several bulk art supplies that the entire school shares. If you order a KIT online from PTO then this sketch pad is already included with your kit so no need to order an extra.

If you choose to shop for your child’s 2018/2019 supplies on your own you can view the supply list by clicking here.

If you have any questions about the school supply ordering process, please contact Brandy Schott ( or Erin Malahowski (

It is hard to believe the last day of school is a few days away. This will be our last official newsletter for a few months but we will still be sending out emails periodically regarding a few topics over the summer.
As you venture into vacation mode, I know you must ;-) be thinking “Hey, how can I get more involved in the PTO next year?” Well— guess what??!! We have several open positions on our board & we would LOVE to have you join us next year! Our board consists of working parents, stay at home parents, dads, part-time working parents, & grandparents. Feel free to email me: for more information on how you can jump on BOARD!
Thank you to ALL of our fabulous PTO Board members & parent volunteers who stepped in to help support our school this year! It definitely takes a village & what an AWESOME village we have here at Lakeside! It has been a pleasure serving as PTO President this year & I look forward to more adventures next year!
Have a SAFE, FUN, & RELAXING SUMMER Longhorns! ~McKenna Marx
