Welcome back to another great year at Lakeview Elementary. This school year we are all anxious to create a fantastic experience for the students. We appreciate the great attitude that we have felt from students and parents. I have enjoyed the school open house and the first days of school. I would like to extend an invitation to join the PTA. On September 18 we will have a family picnic. Data about our students and their success in school will be shared. I want to continue to promote school spirit and encourage everyone to wear green or blue on Fridays. Please try to set aside a shirt for Friday that is our school colors. I would hope our students are proud to be part of Lakeview School and neighborhood. I appreciate the efforts of parents, PTA and our Community Council. We have great volunteer leadership at Lakeview. These parents spend a good amount of time helping our school be a great place. I encourage everyone to be involved in supporting these groups and the school activities they put together. We continue to add technology and software purchased with school trust land money. We feel we can better meet the needs of each student from re-teaching to enrichment with the help of technology. Several of the programs give license for you to use at home to reinforce the learning. We hope this year brings continued success for each student. I am sure we have many hopes as we have started a new school year. I hope we continue to create an environment where each child feels cared for and important. I hope parents have confidence in sending their children to us, knowing we will do whatever we can to enrich the student’s experiences. I hope each teacher has the support they need to truly make a difference. We pledge as a school staff to create a nurturing environment where the students feel important and learn to treat each other in kind ways. Thanks for all you each do to help the school be a positive place. Let’s each take responsibility to contribute any way we can.
