Points of Pride

During the 2017-18 school year, there have been many reminders of what Lake Shore Public Schools stands for. Please enjoy our Points of Pride slideshow, a collection of reasons why Lake Shore is our home.

Our Mission

Lake Shore Public Schools provides an exceptional education for all 3,516 students in a safe and nurturing environment.  Our students are empowered to excel in an evolving global society, supported by the collaborative effort of staff, families, and community. 

From preschool through our graduating seniors, Lake Shore students are a part of a strong school system that works hard every day for the benefit of our students. Our guiding principles, Inspiration, Innovation, and Celebration, are woven into the fabric of everything we do.    

Lake Shore offers accelerated learning opportunities starting in elementary school. Students consistently have strong test scores, and teachers utilize the latest technology to track individual student progress throughout the school year. The district currently offers foreign language starting in Kindergarten. Elementary students enjoy daily enrichment opportunities and a full calendar of extracurricular activities.  Our middle and high schools are home to award winning athletics and fine and performing art programs. Lake Shore offers dual enrollment and early college opportunities for students free of charge.

Macomb County families seeking a quality education for the preschool-11th grade students are invited to apply through our Schools of Choice program.

Kindergarten Graduations 

Lake Shore celebrated our students’ early milestones at Kindergarten Graduations. Don’t blink. These imaginative, carefree souls will soon walk across the stage to receive their high school diploma.

We have watched you learn and grow, changing from day to day. We are excited to see your progression as you continue to move forward. Congratulations to the Class of 2030! Keep dreaming about becoming a real life superhero or princess and conquering this world with your mighty lego creations.

Class of 2018 Graduates

The 95th annual Commencement Ceremony was a day of celebration. Thank you, Class of 2018, for representing the traits of resilience, integrity, empathy, creativity, resourcefulness, curiosity, and humbleness. This is your day to pause and reflect on your educational journey. 

Everyone always told us that nothing is perfect, but we believe fairytales exist. In this story, and on this day, everyone receives their diploma. In addition, this class was awarded over $5.5 million in scholarships! 

The Senior Video and Graduation DVDs are finished and ready for pick up for those that preordered. If you did not preorder but you still want to purchase a copy it is $5 for the Senior Memory video and $15 for the Graduation Ceremony. These can be picked up and paid for in the main office. 

Berenice Abbott said, "Photography can only represent the present. Once photographed, the subject becomes part of the past." The past looks beautiful in every way, but a Shorian future is even more promising. Thank you, Stewart Fine Portraits, for taking and sharing our graduation photos.

Top Ten 

It is with great pleasure and pride that Lake Shore High School announces its Top Ten for the graduating Class of 2018. Their hard work and commitment continuously shines through them.

In our Valedictorian Tyler’s graduation speech, he pointed out that people do not all succeed in the same way. Being named Top Ten is an honor that warrants recognition, but we believe all 320 graduates are successful. Tyler says, “A large part of high school was learning more about who you are as a person, and how you best succeed. This could be in the form of how we best learn, how to overcome difficult situations, or where we set our standards for ourselves. Everyone is bright in their own way.” Lake Shore agrees with Tyler’s belief that every Shorian is intelligent, and we are excited to watch this class continue to change the world for the better.

MOCI Graduation

Eleven students from the Class of 2018 graduated from the MOCI Special Education program. After our Band played Pomp and Circumstance, students received individual recognition from their senior mentors, spoke about their own favorite memories, watched a slideshow highlighting the year’s achievements, and were officially declared graduates with the moving of the tassel from right to left. Students looked beautiful, adorned in their graduation regalia, and celebrated this achievement with friends, family, cake, and a dance party!


Grant Secures New Playground

UnitedHealth executives, school leaders and Marvin Jones, Jr., met on the Rodgers Elementary playground this morning to dedicate newly donated equipment and enjoy the beautification.

Marvin Lewis Jones Jr. is an American football wide receiver for the Detroit Lions of the National Football League. In his message to all 500 elementary students, he reminded them about the importance of physical activity. He quoted, “It is very important to get out there, play and stay active, because if I didn’t, I wouldn’t be where I am now."

The project was made possible by a $22,000 grant from UnitedHealthcare to Jones’ Dreambuilders program. They were joined by Playworks, which teams up with companies and volunteer groups to improve children’s health and well-being by increasing opportunities for physical activity and safe, meaningful play at school. Jones will be at the school with UnitedHealthcare leaders, employee volunteers and students to install the new equipment and clean and beautify the grounds.


Pasta for Patients

Mrs. Gough's 6th Hour winning class presented a check to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. During a two week cash and coin donation period, Kennedy Middle School raised $2,681.68 for Pasta for Patients.

Lake Shore gives back to our community on an ongoing basis throughout the school year.  In addition to Pasta for Patients, we collect blood donations for the American Red Cross, make shoe donations, sell puzzle pieces for Autism, collect household supplies for MCREST, participate in Adopt a Family, and promote a greener world at Nautical Cleanup. 


Spring Brings Sounds of Musicals

Lake Shore thespians take the stage at all ages and continue to entertain our community with Tony Award quality.

Audiences watched Dorothy and Alice work together to defeat the Queen of Hearts and get back home in Lake Kennedy Middle School's this lighthearted play, Dorothy in Wonderland. 
Rodgers Elementary’s Drama Club performed Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. With musical numbers, classic storylines, and beautiful costumes and props, both shows were a hit! Lake Shore High School's 52 cast members, the most we have ever had in years, participated in this year's all-school musical, FAME!

Witnessing Artistry Happen at Exhibit

The K-12 District Art Show was the perfect place to witness artistry happen at Lake Shore. Students prepared drawings, paintings, ceramics, and digital art to display for the community. This exhibit featured 30 art pieces from each building, giving students a chance to show their talents and growth.

We would like to give special recognition to the following Advanced Placement students who showcased their portfolios: Leslie Govea-Mirelas, Lexi Vaughn, Ivan Skrtic, Shauna Strosser, Alayna Current, and Katy Lundy. These seniors have worked tirelessly to develop a portfolio that is personal to their individual talents and interests, while demonstrating mastery of drawing and design principles.

Masonic Participates in Red Wings Program

The Red Wings School Assembly program energized Masonic Heights students, helping them to understand the importance of healthy living and learn more about the sport of hockey. This free program provided motivational life skills messages, an exciting competition featuring students versus teachers, and two free sets of street hockey equipment. With only 115 schools selected per year, it was no surprised that this red and white district was a first-round pick!


Goal Exceeded at Jump Rope for Heart 

Rodgers Elementary celebrates at an assembly today for raising $6,523 for Jump Rope for Heart. Our personal goal of $6,000 was exceeded because of student participation. Down by $2,000 less than 24 hours ago, Mr. Pittinato announced to parents and students that they needed a nudge to meet their goal. Obviously, the call to action resulted in this special humanitarian achievement.

At the assembly, students showed off their jump roping skills, were awarded the newest banner and medals, and teachers played musical hoop chairs and egg roulette! Mr. Pittinato organizes this important fundraiser with help from Senior Youth Market Director Cheryl Muscott. Muscott shared, “I’m so proud of Lake Shore for their hard work. Year after year, Rodgers has beat the average total donation of $3,200 in Macomb County.” Congratulations to our top fundraiser Lilly Benson raising $620. Second and third place fundraisers were Melissa Ratliff with $536 and Michael Windemuth with $325.
