The Lakeside Christian School will be holding their annual fundraiser this Saturday evening, at the Lakeview Community Church.
Funds raised will be allocated directly to the mortgage that was put in place when the school doubled their square footage in a substantial building project, 7 years ago. Principal, Nancy Reimer, says they have only $13,000 left.
"We've had so many families and friends help us," shares Reimer. "The fundraising will go towards the last of our mortgage payments on our addition that we had in 2016. So, we're pretty excited about that!"
"We're ahead of schedule," she adds. "We've been as responsible as we can be with the funds we've been blessed with."
Reimer says the addition to their school has provided numerous benefits for their students. "The addition meant that we could provide high school for the community and have more space. We have a multi-purpose room that we hold assembly in every morning, so we can connect with all the students and the staff. We can also host chapel once a month for our families and friends."
"Also, on days like today when it's cold outside, the kids are using that as a play area," she adds.
"So, the addition has allowed us to expand the school and we updated the school which needed to be done. Our enrollment has been stable over the past number of years so that has been really great too!"
"Right now we've got registration open for Kindergarten, and also for students for next year already. So, if anyone is interested in even coming down for a tour, contact us and we are available during school hours!"
