Let's Keep Kids Safe Online!
For parents in the digital age, one of the most ever-present concerns is Internet safety. How can we keep our children and teens safe online? Today, this means protecting their identities, keeping them safe from predators, and helping them avoid mistakes that will follow them into the future. Netsafe Utah is a great site for kids, teens, and parents for practicing and learning about online safety.
Let's work together to keep our kids safe!

Prevent the Summer Slide

During the school year, students grow in terms of knowledge and skills.  However, when summer break comes along, the formal learning process often ends, and many students begin to show learning losses known as the Summer Slide.  Parents can prevent the Summer Slide by keeping kids involved in learning over the summer months.  Use the links below to access activities that students can do to prevent the Summer Slide.

A Big Thank You to Provo City Employees!

As part of the United Way Day of Caring, Provo City employees provided service at various schools, nonprofit organizations, and homes throughout Utah County. Lakeview was lucky to have volunteers from the power, forestry, and fire departments hard at work for our school! They painted a giant map of Brazil on our blacktop, dug tree rings, added bark, washed windows, shoveled mulch, and dusted shelves! The kids loved visiting with them as they worked, and seeing the big red fire truck out front was fun too! Thank you to these great volunteers for all their work and effort today!

Please Help Keep Our Kids Safe!

We are happy to see so many students biking and walking to school each morning.  Please consider having your child bike or walk to school in an effort to reduce the amount of traffic coming and going from Lakeview.  Because of this year's increased traffic on Lakeshore Drive, some concerns have arisen.  Parents driving students to school are not being mindful of crosswalks and allowing students the right-of-way.  If you choose to drive  your child to school, please proceed with great caution on the streets surrounding Lakeview Elementary.  If your child already bikes or walks to school, please discuss how to do so safely on traffic-filled streets.  Thank you for your cooperation.  We will continue to work together to ensure the best situation for our student and their safety.

Daily Herald Recognizes Karen Cox
as Educator of the Week!

Image of Karen Cox

Karen Cox, a kindergarten teacher at Lakeview Elementary School in the Provo School District, has been named this week’s Daily Herald Educator of the Week.

Cox has been a teacher for nine years, including teaching in Oregon, Payson, and now Provo. Before she joined the Lakeview teaching team, Cox was the Lakeview PTA President.

Cox is passionate about her art integration program. She is also constantly looking for creative ways to teach her students the fundamentals of education in a fun and engaging way.

One such lesson is to memorize the five-finger acronym TPTSL:

  • Thumb: begin with a capital letter
  • Pointer: spaces
  • Tall finger: tall capital letters wherever they are needed
  • Shorter finger: shorter lower case letters wherever they are needed
  • Last finger: end with punctuation

Karen also uses art integration lessons to teach math, where students use sunflower seeds and craft supplies to learn how to count by two and solve math problems.

The Provo School District congratulates Cox and thanks her for her hard work at Lakeview Elementary.

The End of an Era!


Cheryl Kromis, our wonderful nutrition manager, is retiring after 28 years of preparing meals for the students of Provo District. That is over 100,000 meals (and yes, we did the math)!! This Friday is her last day, and we cannot adequately express how greatly she will be missed. Here are a few comments from the faculty and staff of Lakeview:

Cheryl Kromis has been a terrific Nutrition manager. We have worked together for 23 years. She cares about the quality of food that is served and takes pride in doing a great job. She cares about people and that is what has made her a great fit. We love her like family and will miss her. Happy retirement!!  
-----Drew Daniels

Roald Dahl once said, “ If you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.” Cheryl is a lovely person. She always seems to shine and make teachers and students around her feel good. She will be missed.
-----Lori Sarkady

Cheryl goes out of her way to make the lunchroom an enjoyable, happy place to be. She is ALWAYS willing to serve both children and adults in any way she can. We will really miss her!!!!
Thank you Cheryl for years of service!
-----Shane Rowley

Cheryl always had such a big happy smile on her face, and always made the children feel welcome in the lunchroom! She always tried to make the lunchroom a fun and welcoming place!
-----Judy Heaton

Cheryl is known for her great laugh and big smile. Almost every morning as I would come in the door at Grandview I would see Cheryl coming down the hall smiling and singing. Her happy disposition always made me glad to be at work. We are at opposite ends of the building at Lakeview so I don't see her as much, but when I do she is still cheerful, and kind. Cheryl has always been very helpful and easy to work with, when I have asked for sack lunches for our field trips she happily gets them ready and adds something special to the lunches to help make the day an even better one for the students. Cheryl doesn't let a holiday go by where she doesn't decorate and do something fun for the children. Cheryl will be missed by all the staff and students at Lakeview!
-----Cindy Baer

Always, ALWAYS had a smile for the kids and teachers.
If you needed anything Cheryl got it and gave it to you quickly with a smile. She made me feel like I was the most important person in the room. Cheryl loved my twins and they love her. The twins go straight to the lunch room to see her when they come to Lakeview.
Lunch was a pleasant experience.
-----Sandi Barnes

Cheryl always put the students and staff first, even before her own health. She always has a smile and lets you know she really cares about you. She is loved and will be greatly missed by all.
-----Ilene Harmon

I'm thinking back, and in my 20 years of working with Cheryl, I can't remember a time when she didn't have a big smile for the kids, or for me. Every time I walked into her office, she lit up as if I was exactly who she was hoping to see. She makes everyone around her feel special. She will be missed.
-----Judy Rose

Kids Can Code!


We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly hinge on understanding how technology works. But only a tiny fraction of us are learning computer science, and less students are studying it than a decade ago.  The 6th graders in Mrs. Rose's class have been involved in a program that teaches kids computer coding!  These pictures were taken during a lesson on binary computer code.


Science Fair Winners

The 6th graders did a fantastic job at the Annual 6th Grade Science Fair!
The students shown above will move to the next level

CRUNCHING our Apples
Apple Crunch Day!

We joined hundreds of thousands of school students as we each “crunched” into an apple during our “Apple CRUNCH” event on October 14th. This simple act of crunching into an apple symbolizes our effort to raise awareness about the importance of eating a healthy diet, increasing access and affordability of fruits and vegetables, and supporting local farmers.

Student Drop-off and Pick-up CHANGE

Dear parents,                                                                                              August, 2015

 As we observed the pick-up and drop-off area directly in front of the kindergarten entrance it was clear that improvements were needed. With input from parents, teachers, and administration, a plan was made to make the process safer and more efficient for students and parents alike.

 With your help and cooperation we feel a positive difference can be made. The following page lists the guidelines and procedures that will be implemented this school year, 2015-2016.

 Possibly, the most important two procedures will be:

 1st Only parents with kindergarten children enter the circle at the south end of the west entrance for pick-up and drop-off. This will greatly reduce the number of cars entering the circle.

 2nd Do not leave your car unattended in the circle during any of the three drop-off and pick-up times. Traffic needs to move through the circle. An unattended parked car will totally disrupt the flow.

 Thank you again for your help in our attempt to make the process much safer and efficient.

Bryan Brimhall

Posted-July 8th, 2014

I am very lucky to have had such a great experience with the teachers who now teach at Lakeview Elementary and my other classmates. I had a severe speech impediment that the teachers and speech therapists helped me overcome. I received a solid education and relationships that I will always cherish. I always look back at my time with these teachers with great fondness.

After elementary school, I went to Dixon, Provo high, then across the street to BYU and then the U of U for medical school. I am currently a senior resident in Internal medicine and future chief medical resident at the University of Colorado.

 The Lakeview teachers helped give me a solid base to grow on throughout the rest of my life.

We are so proud of you Bryan!
