Message from the Principal

Lakewood is having a fantastic second six weeks! Rain or shine the Harvest Festival will happen this weekend! I hope to see you there! Last week our fantastic 4th grade Writing teachers attended a training with THE writing guru Gretchen Bernabei! Three of our teachers were recognized by the district as Demonstration Teachers (Alysa Aelvoet, Rebecca Hile and Heidi Hasfjord)!

ON TIME EAGLES

Back by popular demand, we will be pulling names of students who are on time every day for awards. Tell your student who is ON TIME to watch the morning announcements for winners.



One of our goals this year is for every staff member and every student to have 97% attendance for the school year. That calculates out to less than 6 absences for the entire year. Please help us reach this goal by making sure that your child is at school every day that they can!


Thank you for your help in making sure your child is at school every day!

Reading 3D Data

We will have an informational meeting in the cafeteria Thursday October 11th from 6pm-7pm and Friday October 12th from 9am-10am. You do not need to attend both meetings. Neither meeting is mandatory but we do want to have a plan to share how to read your student's scores.

Family Trips

The Texas statue does not allow a student absence from school for a vacation or trip during instructional days. The absence is considered unexcused. Any missed assignments may be completed for a maximum grade of a 70. A student must make up school work due to an absence. It is the responsibility of the student to initiate and schedule with the teacher all make up tests and work procedures. A student is given one day of make-up time for missed work for each day absent, up to five days.


The school calendar is located in your child's MOOSE. Please look for school holidays to plan family vacations or trips. Important instruction takes place every day and we don't want your child to miss anything and possibly get behind!
