Lunch with the Mayor

For the Spirit of 67 online auction that lead up to the big Thanks4Giving Luncheon held at Knollwood Country Club on Friday, October 19, 2018, guests had to option to bid on hundreds of amazing items and experiences. One in particular was to bid for your 4th grade son/daughter to attend a lunch with Lake Forest Mayor, Robert Lansing, at the school they attend (Sheridan, Cherokee or Everett). It was a popular auction item and the first lunch occurred at Everett yesterday, October 22nd where about ten students had the chance to meet the mayor and have lunch with him. The lunch was full of curious questions, hamburgers, and smiley fries. The upcoming lunches with the Mayor of Lake Forest will be held at Sheridan on Monday, October 29th and Cherokee on Monday, November 5th.

A Veterans Day assembly will be held on Monday, Nov. 12. You're invited to join us, and if you have a friend or family member who is a veteran or is currently on active duty, please invite him/her as well! We're also collecting pictures of veterans and active duty servicemen and women. Click here for more information.
As a reminder, the front parking lot is coned off ten minutes before dismissal each day. The car line in the Circle Drive is our preferred system for picking up students by car. The line may be long initially, but it moves quickly. Thank you for helping us ensure a safe dismissal process for our students.
