Your Lakeview Team!

Lakeview Staff during Kindness Week

Conferences This Week

Conferences are next week, and we value the chance to talk with you about your student's progress so far this year. This special sit-down meeting with a teacher is your chance to wonder about academic progress, character development, and how we all work as a team to support your child. There is good news to share about every students at Lakeview, and we want to hear from you as well about what progress you are seeing at home. If you have not confirmed a time with your child's teacher, please do so as soon as possible.

During conferences, the Scholastic Book Fair will be taking place in the library. This is a great chance to get a new book (or two ... or three) to read together at home.
