Community resources are used to strengthen schools, families, and student learning. Here are the community resources that Lakeside partners with:
  • Boys and Girls Club- After School Care in 2015-16
    • Please call 233-1414 with any questions or to enroll your child.
  • YMCA SPLASH program
    • The YMCA provides six free swimming lessons for all 2nd graders in the Oshkosh School District. Lakeside 2nd graders are bussed to the YMCA on 20th Avenue for 6 weeks to learn basic swimming and water safety skills. Students are grouped according to swimming ability for the lessons. The lessons meet curricular goals in the areas of health, physical education, and social studies.
  • Tri-County Community Dental Clinic 
    • The Tri-County Community Dental Clinic located in Appleton provides a free dental screening to students right at Lakeside School as part of Phase One of the Focus for Kids program. In Phase 2, participating students travel to the clinic for a free dental hygiene check-up. Phase 3 provides free follow-up treatment to students who need additional dental treatment. This is done on site in a mobile dental clinic. 
  • Junior Achievement
  • Community center for Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts
  • SOAR (Special Opportunities in Artist Residencies) 
  • Community Service projects such as Salvation Army Food Drive


As a school we value the community's generous donation of time, materials and funding to enhance educational opportunities for all children. The assistance of individual or group donations has enabled our school to accomplish far more than it otherwise could have. The old African proverb states that “it takes a village to educate a child.” On behalf of the Oshkosh Area School District, we thank our many donors for becoming a part of our village.
If you would like to make donation, you may contact the school principal at 920.424.0131 or via e-mail at Donations in any amount will be accepted and the funds will be held in a donations account with the district business office until the total amount is received for an item. Here is a list of some ideas:

  • new sign for the front of our school 
  • new or gently used books for classrooms (grades K-3)
  • classroom subscriptions to Scholastic News, Time for Kids, or another non-fiction resource
  • ipads for classrooms (one classroom set to be shared)
