How do I help my child at home?
Ask your child about his/her day
Here are some things that happen EVERY day here at Lakeview that you could ask about:
What book did you read during independent reading time?
What did your teacher talk about during the reading mini-lesson today?
What did you write about during writing today?
What specials did you have today?
What did you learn in math today? Did you play any math games?
Read, read, read ... and then talk about the book together
We can't stress this enough. It's the key to future success.
30 minutes every night, and encourage a variety of books.
Use the online math games provided by teachers
See below - or - use the links provided by your teacher
Talk about behavior and character
Reinforce how important it is to you that your child(ren) show great character.
Get a good night's sleep
Get to bed early and limit screen time before bed. It's hard to learn if you are tired.

Please mark your calendar for these upcoming events:
October 9 - Cherrydale fundraiser kickoff assembly (during school - just for our students). Look for information from this fundraiser to come home in the Tuesday folder. Cherrydale used to be known as Mr. Z's in the past.
October 11 - PTO meeting 7-8 p.m. in the Lakeview library. We will have a representative from our district office with us to talk about the upcoming school district referendum.
October 19 - Grandparent's Day and Food Drive. Grandparents come to Lakeview from 8:30-10:00 a.m. for this annual celebration. There are snacks, a song, and visit time in classrooms for our special relatives. If grandparents are not able to celebrate with us, perhaps you have another relative that could join us?
Is my child too sick for school today?
Art room news
Welcome back to the Art Room, Lakeview Families! We are already off to an exciting start to the year in our Art Room.
We will once again be posting all of our art projects on Artsonia, which not only lets us share the artwork with friends and relatives far away, but also offers us a wonderful way to earn funds for the art room through customized keepsakes. I am always happy to add artwork done at home to a student's gallery, so please don't hesitate to bring any of those special creations to me for publishing.
If you are not yet connected to your child’s account, please look for a permission slip coming home soon. Thank you!
Our incredible math specialist, Ms. Schefelker, has set up some parent homework help events in the coming months. If you've ever said, "I don't understand how to help my child with math today," please join us. Here is the link to the times and dates. Feel free to attend any session.
Your child's teacher may have provided more specific log-in information for math work at home. The following links do not require a log-in, so they can work anywhere!
