Peter Vanstrom from Artistic Dentistry of Atlanta gave the give to the school Jan. 10.
On Jan. 10, Northlake dentist Dr. Peter Vanstrom and Artistic Dentistry of Atlanta presented a gift of $5,000 to Lakeside High School, establishing his practice as a top tier community donor to the school’s $1.5 million Valhalla Project capital funding campaign.

Organizers of Lakeside High School's $1.5 million fundraising campaign are looking to partner with local Realtors for help with their campaign.
Some Northeast Atlanta realtors add Lakeside High School as "riders" on their For Sale signs, presumably because the academic reputation of the public school helps move properties. The Valhalla subdivision near the school (see accompanying image) likely alludes to the school’s traditions and Viking mythology.

Kane was one of about a dozen realtors who attended a Valhalla outreach reception in September at the school. The meeting was organized by Cathy Clark with Sagamore …

The Lakeside Foundation's Valhalla Project has raised almost $120,000 toward their $1.5 million goal.
After matching gifts are received, a group of concerned residents will have raised close to $120,000 toward a final goal of about $1.5 million for renovations at Lakeside High School. The first phase of the project would fund artificial turf, a running path around the perimeter of campus, additional lunchtime seating, outdoor storage for athletic equipment and updated signage. These projects would total $800,000 according to the Dream List on the project’s website. Current construction at Lakeside is being funded by the district but only includes renovations to the inside of the school, including a 25-classroom addition, a fine arts center and updated bathrooms. Aligning future construction to run along with the current would save the …
