Message from the Principal, Mrs. Bailey

Lakeview Parents, Students, and Community,


We have just completed our sixth week of school, and we are just two weeks away from our first Intersession and three weeks from our first fall break. We had a wonderful Homecoming Week with our first ever Community Pep Rally. Thank you to all who came out to support our students and celebrate with us. As the end of the Grading Cycle comes to a close, please make sure you are in contact with teachers as needed.


As always, please feel free to email me with any questions.

PTSA Art Reflections Contest

2021 Reflections Art Project Topic---- I Will Change The World By ...


Reflections has been a staple arts program in many schools for over 50 years. Through the efforts of our Local PTAs, millions of students have found a creative outlet in the areas of dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography, and visual arts.


With positive recognition as the focus of this program, rather than competition, students of all ages and abilities can experience the benefits of creative expression and help in finding their own voice in telling their unique story.


Started in 1969 by Mary Lou Anderson, then Colorado PTA President, Reflections has grown to be one of the largest nationwide programs of its kind, with more than 200,000 students participating annually.


Visit our 2020-2021 Reflections Gallery to see examples of entries that were awarded by Texas PTA in past years. And see last year's State and National results.


Express your artistic talent and tell us how you plan to change the world through Reflections!
