Lakeview Elementary - We Know Every Child by Name & by Need
April 20, 2018
Hello Lakeview Families!
There are so many celebrations this week on our campus. Our students are growing and learning and we could not be more proud. If you have not had the opportunity to read with your children lately, please do so. They have come so far!
Please read below for important information and dates for the upcoming weeks.
NISD Curriculum Audit Survey
Northwest Independent School District leaders have contracted with an external evaluation team from Texas Association of School Administrators (TASA) to complete a Curriculum Audit. The team will be on site the week of April 30-May 3, 2018 and will be visiting campuses during that time as well as conducting interviews. However, the team will not have the opportunity to speak with everyone in the district. We would like to use the following survey to gather input from as many people as possible. Please take a few minutes to complete this survey so your opinion can be represented.
All answers will remain anonymous and survey information will only be reported in aggregate. Please complete this survey by April 26, 2018.
Thank you very much for your assistance. Your input will provide valuable information for the district.

NISD Summer Techno Expo
Camp Invention 2018 Hosted at Lakeview
Camp Invention still needs Leadership Interns (students entering 10-12th grades) to help facilitate Lakeview’s Camp Invention. It’s a great opportunity for high school students to earn community service and it’s an opportunity you can add to those college applications J Below is a description of the intern positions—if you have a student who is interested, please contact Mrs. Andrews (email@example.com ) or Tricia Hanson at (firstname.lastname@example.org ).
PTA Remind 101 Account
We wanted to let you know about a new way to help you stay connected to the latest Lakeview PTA news. We’ve set-up a Remind 101 account just for the PTA. If you aren’t familiar, Remind 101 allows you to sign up to receive texts from a specific group. We love the idea that we can quickly get information out to our parents. To join, you can text @tclakeview to 81010 OR click this link: https://www.remind.com/join/tclakeview

Facebook and Social Media
1. Think before you post, your words have power.
2.Do not post pictures or information of children who are not yours. Privacy is important so do not post pictures or information about other students without parent permission.
3. If you have a question regarding events or information regarding Lakeview, your best bet is to always email your child's teacher or call the front office.
4. If you are unhappy with a situation or would like to share a concern, please always email your child's teacher or contact our front office.
5. Finally, stay positive. No one benefits when community members disagree on line.
