Shout Out to...

...The Class of 2021

Congratulations to all of our 2021 graduates!  You weathered a full academic year without most of the in-person activities traditionally available. You should be proud of yourselves for your accomplishments and perseverence. Best of luck in all that you do.

Donations and Volunteers Needed
or Children's Clothing Drive

On August 10 & 11, CAPE and Sunshine Reach are hosting the Lake Mills Children's Clothing Giveaway.  This event will take place at Lake Mills United Methodist Church and will provide clothing to families in need in LMASD. Families are able to shop (at no cost) for gently used/new clothing for their children for the upcoming school year.


Participating families are asked to follow the honor system in self-determining need, as well as the policy of "Take what you need and need what you take." In order to help as many families as possible, participating families are also encouraged (but not required) to donate clothing items their children have outgrown. 


Do you have clothing to donate?  Are you interested in helping on August 10 & 11?  Please email
