    ”Megan Megan Thompson, Principal
    Relationships are the key to learning. I believe that every student deserves to have a trusted adult and a champion for their learning, not only in academics but in life. "In a world where you can be anything, be kind". I am honored to step into the principal role at Lakeside Middle School after serving as an assistant principal here for the past three years. I have my Bachelors in Middle-Grade Education, Masters in Reading Education and Ed.D in Educational Leadership. I love my Lakeside Family!
