Our Mission

Lake Shore Public Schools will provide an exceptional education for all 3,739 students in a safe and nurturing environment.  Our students will be 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.

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 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!

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.

PAWS Visits Violet Elementary

PAWS, the Detroit Tigers official mascot, acted out a reading of “Casey at the Bat” at Violet Elementary today, a complete surprise to everyone. In fact, their only hint was voluntarily wearing spirit day Tigers gear. Student volunteers were gifted Tigers prizes if they correctly answered questions related to the story. Everyone was given the opportunity to high five PAWS! Opening Day on March 29th is almost here.

Once again, our PTO has gone above and beyond to organize and sponsor this event.


Note: Each school (LSHS, Kennedy, Masonic, Rodgers, Violet) has a building-specific Events Calendar.
