Middle School Message

November 11, 2022

Our mission: We are a community of learners inspiring each child to explore, grow, and achieve.

Welcome Ms. Harmon

Lakewood Middle School would like to give a big welcome to Ms. Aimee Harmon, our new building secretary. If you call in this week or stop into the office, take a moment to say "Hi" and welcome her to Lakewood!

Ms. Harmon comes to us with over a decade of experience in the construction industry and is excited to be part of a school environment. She is a resident of our school district.

Happy Veterans Day!

Lakewood Middle School would like to honor all Veterans today. Our students and staff put together this video to honor all veterans and a few special ones we hold near and dear.
