SMVA students should see the information from your teachers for conferences, which may be on different dates. Lakeview 4K with Ms. Maes may also be at a different time.

Please be sure to choose your child's teacher from the Sign-up Genius list. Scroll across the tabs at the top. The first tab that opens is for Mrs. Zoellner's 5K class.

New online tool for math

Our students recently started using an online tool called ST Math to help support the development of math skills. Here are parent letters in English and Spanish. Students in some grade levels started using ST Math this week, and more will start soon. The interesting thing about ST Math is there are no words or directions - the problems are presented in such a way that students have to figure out what to do and then accomplish it. If students are on quarantine or isolation and cannot attend school, ST Math will be part of their online learning while away, along with Lexia which supports literacy development.

Save the Date - March 4

On Thursday, March 4, our school will host an online "Movement and Mindfulness Night" with a variety of activities for students and families to choose from! Please mark your calendar for this fun event for the entire family. It will be from 6:00-7:30 p.m. and feature some Lakeview staff members as well as people from outside of Lakeview. Stay tuned for more information.
