We're proud—proud of our past and prospects of our future.
During the District’s Welcome Back Convocation, all 400+ employees signed the “100 Years of Excellence” banner, enjoyed delicious breakfast, visited with colleagues, and listened to keynote speakers tailoring their messages to highlight this year's motto.

Speaker highlights included a Welcome message from Teacher Lisa Pecoraro, LSPS Foundation update from Donna Bates Bowers, Barton-Malow Construction update from Lake Shore High School Class of 1997 graduate Daryl Dombrow, Fortus Group introduction from CEO Brian Bastianelli, Best Wishes message from KMS 6th grader Rebecca Parrinello, Retiree Reflections from Teacher John Daly, and Closing keynote Superintendent Dr. Joe DiPonio.

Veteran teacher and now Lake Shore retiree fan favorite John Daly discussed heroic optimism with staff. He said, "Your ability to positively impact others hinges on your own thoughts and your own words." He went on to tell the story of motivational speaker John O’Leary, an expert of overcoming adversity. Parents have entrusted us with their children for 6.5 hours per day, 180 days per year, and typically more, and they can certainly count on us in all ways to teach, support, and love their children.  But first, we must look at ourselves in the mirror and find confidence and courage inside.

For 100 years we've had an unwavering belief in education rooted in moments in time that share our inspiration, innovation, and celebration. The Shorian Nation believes in the transformative power of education for all students. 

Cheers to 100 Years, Lake Shore! Once a Shorian, Always a Shorian!
