Teacher Appreciation Week

This week, May 2-6 is Teacher Appreciation Week. Please encourage your child to take a moment to recognize and thank their teachers. A thank you note from a student can mean a great deal at this time of the year.

Sally Simone, Lakeview's Friend of Education

Congratulations to Sally Simone, Lakeview's Friend of Education. Sally was chosen for her continuous work with the PTO, going above and beyond to show our staff they are appreciated each month. She even cooked three turkeys at Thanksgiving for the staff, even though she had never cooked a turkey before! That's true dedication!!

Thank you for all that you do, Sally! Lakeview appreciates your time!
