PBIS DAY
Wear your blue Wildcat shirt Thursday, Dec. 4th!
WINTER CONCERTS
Check the calendar for all winter concert dates. Look for this symbol CARING AND SHARING
"Tis The Holiday Season”- being with family, caring about others and sharing with those in need. If
you would like to help out someone in our Lake Country community this holiday season with their
wish lists, please take a wish tag from the Giving Tree starting Monday, November 24th. Gifts
should be new and wrapped with the gift receipt and wish tag taped on the outside of the gift. All
gifts are due to Mrs. Thurin by Wednesday, December 10th. Monetary donations are also accepted
and can be given to the office or Mrs. Thurin with the label "Caring and Sharing."
LOST AND FOUND
Please note that any Lost and Found items not claimed by December 10th will be bagged up and taken to charity.
DRESS FOR THE WEATHER
Please make sure your child/ren have the appropriate outerwear for the weather. We try to get the kids out
everyday if at all possible. So if it is minus 5 below windchill or higher, expect that they will go out for recess.

LIONS CLUB
Not sure if you are all were aware, but we have a collection box in the front entrance for used eyeglasses and
hearing aids. The Lions Club came to pick up and we had a total of 65 glasses and 2 hearing aids! By donating
your used eye glasses and hearing aids, someone is seeing and hearing the world differently! The Lions Club
thanks you for helping them help others.
ATTENTION DEER HUNTERS!
The eighth grade will be dissecting deer hearts in science class and we need your help. We are asking for
heart donations throughout the season. Hearts that are whole and not damaged will be accepted. Please
put a gallon size zipper style bag in your pocket when hunting this fall. Place the heart in the bag and freeze
it until you or your child can bring it in to school. If possible, please label the bag buck or doe. Donations
may be dropped off in the office or Mrs. Koszarek’s room. Many thanks!
CUB SCOUT PACK 169 NEWS AND FOOD DRIVE!
At our November 13th Pack meeting we had the pleasure of having several veterans come and talk with the boys
about their service. They answered questions and put faces to those we honored this past Veteran’s Day and
every day. The boys also made cards to say thank you to send to our troops serving overseas.
The next Pack Meeting will be at Whale Tale Archery in Dousman on December 6th from 3:30-5:30. Pinewood
Derby car kits will be distributed at this meeting too! Hope all our Cub Scouts can join us!
This holiday season, Cub Scout Pack 169 and Lake Country School will work with Hartland Area Food Pantry to
provide nutritious meals to those in need.
Please bring non-perishable food items to school December 5th-12th, 2014.
Help our Lake Country School Cub Scout Pack 169 feed those in need from our local area by contributing to the
food drive this holiday season. Working with Hartland Area Food Pantry, which serves hundreds of individuals and
families in our local Arrowhead School District, let’s help provide nutritious meals for those in need. Our goal is to
donate 2,014 food items on December 13.
In the spirit of fostering healthy competition (and bragging rights), we will have a contest to see which classroom
can bring in the most food items per student. Cub Scout Pack 169 will provide a pizza lunch for the winning
classroom.
Look for our posters throughout Lake Country School in a couple weeks. Your generosity is much appreciated and
will make an important difference in the lives of those around us.
For more information on the Scouts, please visit our website.
Wildcat Clips deadline: Friday, December 5th, 2014.
Please provide your Clips submission request to Lisa Acton. E-mail Lisa at
[email protected] in a Word document. We reserve the right to edit and/or limit
items submitted to fit our Clips format. All Clips submissions are subject to approval by Mark

Looking for a gift idea for a special LCS staff member?
The PTO has a “Faculty Favorites” binder in the school office
just for you! All teachers and school staff members were given
the opportunity to complete a form and include it in this binder.
Stop in the office and take a look!
Visit
https://sites.google.com/site/lakecountryschoolpto
to learn more about PTO events, volunteer
opportunities, fundraisers, meeting minutes,
reports, and more! You can also access
the
PTO website through the LCS website.
Save Those Grocery Store Receipts
SENTRY & PIGGLY WIGGLY
Did you know that LCS earns 1% of the total on each
Sentry and Piggly Wiggly receipt submitted? How easy is
that? The September total was $192.15. The October
total dropped to $50.42. There is LOTS of room for
improvement! And what is easier than simply saving your
receipt when you shop at Sentry or Piggly Wiggly? Keep
collecting and turning in to LCS! Every receipt helps!

Another successful
“Donuts with Dads”
event is in the books.
What a fun morning!
In October, we submitted $368.80 worth of Box Tops bringing our school year total to $923.
That means we’re 18.5% to our goal of $5,000 this school year! That’s a great start, but we
have a couple of classes that have yet to turn in any Box Tops! Tis the season for lots of
cooking—please look for Box Tops on ingredients you buy to prepare your holiday meals.
With your help, we are hoping for BIG Box Top results in November and December. Thanks!
