A Message from Mr. James Przepasniak
It’s hard to believe, but we are already in the middle of the Holidays. I am very pleased with the excellence I see in our classrooms, on our stages, and through our athletic contests. We had a successful week of Homecoming activities with spirit days, a parade before the football game, and a dance at the Senior High to cap things off. It’s great to see everyone taking pride in our District academically, athletically, and musically!
Our Capital Construction Project has moved into its next phase, and the Board of Education is currently prioritizing items in and around our buildings that need the most attention. Thank you to everyone who filled out our survey concerning the project – it’s clear to the BOE that an initiative like this is necessary to provide students with a safe and state-of-the-art learning environment.
As we approach the winter months, and the inevitable inclement weather that winter brings, I wanted to take a moment to remind parents, students, faculty, and staff that in the event of any school closings, please check with our local media outlets for information. These include:
WGRZ Channel 2
WIVB Channel 4/CW 23
WKBW Channel 7
Spectrum Cable News
WBEN 930 AM
You will also receive a message via our Blackboard Connect system if schools will be closed or afternoon/evening activities are canceled. Please also make sure that your child is prepared and properly dressed for colder temperatures, especially those who walk to and from school.
Winter sports start on November 15, and I encourage everyone to consult our website for team schedules and come out to root on our athletes. The holidays are also upon us, and that means a busy season for our musicians, as well. The District calendar has all of the dates of winter concerts and activities that are also posted on our website. I’m looking forward to spending some evenings listening to the wonderful music our talented students create, from the Elementary buildings to the Senior High. I hope many of you will come out to enjoy these great events, too. I’ve shared some key dates below.
Throughout the next couple of months, our Middle and Senior High students will be engaged in a number of Winter sporting events. I encourage everyone to consult our website for our Winter sports team schedules and come out to root on our athletes.

We’ve had a successful Fall, and I look forward to continuing to build on that success as we move into 2017 and continue to build an Academic Powerhouse at Lake Shore.
Happy Holidays to everyone in the Lake Shore Central School District!
