If there are any parent/s who would be able to be Lakecrest ambassadors at this event please let me know by e-mail or sign up on the form posted outside the main office.

Thank you in advance to any parents who can help with this.


“Kids Got Talent” at the NL Kids Expo


“Milestone Promotions & Events is pleased to present the 2nd Annual NL Kids Got Talent Show – proudly sponsored by RE/MAX! This event will take place at the NL Kids & Family Expo on June 3rd at Techniplex in St. John’s. We are sending you this information in hopes that you might know some great potential performers and can help spread the word!


This is the second year for this competition and once again the winner will walk away with $1000 cash prize and an awesome trophy! No one will leave empty handed with there being a second prize awarded of $250, and every performer will receive a NL Kids Got Talent Swag bag of goodies! Last year, our performers and families had a great experience and encouraged us to continue this initiative.


This competition is open to kids between 8-12 as of June 3, 2017 and ALL talents are welcome! Last year we had singers, dancers, musicians and even a poet.  Once again we will have a celebrity judging panel who are friendly and will be providing encouraging and positive feedback to the contestants.”

Yearbook Volunteers Needed:


We are looking for a few parent volunteers (ideally 2-3) to take charge of the yearbook for next year!  The current staff is working on the supplement for May and June of this year, so it would be an ideal time to learn about what is involved and become familiar with the website that is used to design the layouts.  If you think you may be interested, please contact Laura Broussard at: or let Ms. Gillingham know and someone will be contacting you.
