Lakeview PTO Update

The Lakeview PTO met on Thursday, May 16 and elected new officers for the 2019-2020 school year. The new officers are April Swanson (president), Samantha Schendel (treasurer), and Bridget Regan (secretary). We would like to remind you that every family at Lakeview is a member of the PTO and we need your help in all sorts of ways. One of the easiest ways to start is to be connected to the PTO's Facebook page so you can keep up with future events. The PTO is planning some events to kick-off next school year as well as some new after-school enrichment activities for students. The staff at Lakeview would like to give a great, big "Thank You!" to the PTO for all the ways they celebrated Teacher Appreciation Week last week.

Girls on the Run Service Project

Our Girls on the Run group will be raising funds for the Herma Heart Association and Children's Hospital by selling lemonade and treats after school. They will be near door 10 on the playground after school on Monday, May 20th. 50 cents will get you a treat or glass of lemonade. Girls on the Run will have completed their 5K at Miller Park on Sunday, May 19th.
