Happy Holidays!

Our winter break started a day earlier than anyone expected! That is sad for us because the day before break has even more joy than usual. We wish all of our students and families happy holidays. May the joy of this season and the hopes for the new year bring peace to all.

As you gather with families over the coming days, please know that the staff at Lakeview considers you part of our extended family. We embrace all students and work in partnership with families to raise the next generation. Our hopes don't just extend into 2023. Together, we are raising children that will graduate from college sometime in the late 2030's and take their position as leaders in our society for 50+ years after that. Pretty amazing!

This would be a great chance to express your thanks to any staff member at Lakeview by submitting a ROAR award for a teacher, paraprofessional, secretary, custodian, or food service worker. Those simple gestures mean a lot to our staff. See below to submit a ROAR award.

Happy holidays!

Roar Awards for Lakeview Staff

Do you appreciate a staff member at Lakeview? Show them you care by submitting their name for a ROAR Award (the grown-up version of our Golden Lions for students). Here is the link to submit - you can submit as many as you want, every week! The staff member will get a certificate and his/her name will be entered in a monthly drawing for a gift card to the place of their choice. Our staff really appreciates the nice notes. ROAR Awards are sponsored by the Lakeview PTO.

Homework for December 22 (Virtual day)

All students were given assignment(s) from homeroom teachers that need to be completed and returned to the teacher by the end of winter break. If the assignment was online (most likely for 4th and 5th grade students), it must be turned in through SeeSaw or Google Classroom. If it was a paper/worksheet assignment, then the student should return it to school on January 3rd. This virtual or asynchronous work will serve as attendance for the missed day on December 22nd. If you have any questions about the work, please contact your child's teacher.

January Calendar Reminders

Tell him or her that the pies that Mr. Sepersky escaped because of the snow day will be thrown on our very first day back from school. Those "Pride Perks" coupons will be put to use right away, and your child will not want to miss it!

Did you view your child's report card online yet? If not, please see the instructions in last week's Lakeview Family Newsletter.

Bucks Attendance Challenge - Update

Be where it counts! We need students in school all day, every day whenever possible. Part of that includes being on time to school every day, which means arriving by 8:30 a.m.

226 of our Lakeview students were on time every day from December 5 through 21 (78% of students were on time every day). Only 62 students were ever late to school those 3 weeks. We did draw the name of a student that was never tardy during those 3 weeks and the PTO graciously donated 2 tickets to the January 16 Bucks game.

Even in the months of cold and messy weather ahead, we ask that families make sure that students are here on time every day. If you are coming to the front door, your student is probably late to school. Come to the playground starting at 8:15 and enter through these doors to make sure your child is on time every day:

4K - Door 6

Mrs. Henneberry's 5K - Door 10

Ms. Lund's 5K - Door 9

1st grade - Door 11

2nd & 3rd grades - Door 5

4th & 5th grades - Door 7

Golden Lions this week

Here are the Lakeview Golden Lions for this week. We had 8 examples of being safe, respectful, and engaged. We also had hundreds of Pride Perks coupons given out for smaller, respectful actions!

• Alterriah has been doing such a wonderful job of working with her math partner. Her leadership skills have really emerged in this partnership. She makes sure to get the work done while being in this partnership. She also helps her partner quite a bit. Keep it up Alterriah!

• Emiliano was completely engaged in his Reading. He stayed focused on his book the entire time.

• Some legos spilled on the floor during Art class. Izzy spent extra time helping Ms. DH clean up all the legos, before using her Table Center tools. Thank you for your kind help, Izzy!

• Delloyd wrote, edited and then recorded himself reading his nonfiction book about Penguins on Seesaw. He worked hard! His recording didn’t work the first time and he had to start all over again. He did a great job staying engaged and handled the rework with a positive attitude. Way to persevere, Delloyd! You should be proud!

• Nathan was really proud when he solved a puzzle on ST Math. Way to stay engaged!
Keep working hard, Nathan!

• Autumn did a fantastic job working hard with me last week! Way to go, Autumn!

• Laila did a great job working hard with me during some assessments. Way to go, Laila!

• Anastasia was so engaged during a holiday craft. She completed her craft, and then willingly helped out a peer who needed help completing her craft! Way to go, Anastasia! Keep up the hard work and kindness!
