Lakeview Elementary - We Know Every Child by Name & by Need

February 9, 2018

Hello Lakeview Families!

Happy 100th and 101st days of school! Can you believe it? I could not be more proud of our students and the energy, positivism, and determination they bring to school each day. Thank you for sending such amazing children for us to work with. We hope you have a great weekend!

Jump Rope for Heart

From Coach Saettel

Dear Lakeview Parents,

The kids are doing a great job of exercising and keeping their hearts healthy! They are also doing a great job online with donations. Lakeview has raised over 18k with 2 weeks left to reach our goal of $21,500! Donations can be made through Friday, February 23rd at

The kids and I would also like to invite you to come jump with us during gym class. Please see the below schedule and if you plan to attend, please wear tennis shoes and comfortable clothes. The kids are looking forward to making you sweat!

If your child’s teacher is highlighted, please check with your child to confirm which day and time he/she will be jumping. Kinder jumps both days for an abbreviated time so please feel free to choose a day.

PTA Remind 101 Account

We wanted to let you know about a new way to help you stay connected to the latest Lakeview PTA news. We’ve set-up a Remind 101 account just for the PTA. If you aren’t familiar, Remind 101 allows you to sign up to receive texts from a specific group. We love the idea that we can quickly get information out to our parents. To join, you can text @tclakeview to 81010 OR click this link:

Compulsory Attendance

We understand students miss school for various reasons. However, please understand that if your child has missed more than 8 school days (excused or unexcused) you will receive a letter from Lakeview regarding attendance. As the state requires students to be in attendance 90% of the year, Lakeview will continue to follow state guidelines regarding this issue. If you have any questions we are happy to talk you through the process.

Absence notes are due no more than 3 days after the date of the absent. After 3 days, the absence will be marked as unexcused.

PTA Membership Toolkit

A huge thank you to our Lakeview PTA for all they do to support Lakeview! Remember anyone can join PTA...grandparents, aunts, uncles, and friends.

Parents please be sure to send an email to and your child's teacher by 1:00pm to communicate ride changes. We will not release students to ride changes without confirmation from parents regarding ride changes.

Birthday Treats

Big picture
We love celebrating birthdays with our students! When planning on bringing in birthday treats, only pre-packaged store bought products are allowed. To ensure there is time to distribute birthday treats to classrooms, please have them in the office no later than 2:00. We are unable to hold ice cream or popsicles so please do not send treats that will melt. Also, if a treat does not have a label of ingredients it will not be shared with the class. Due to allergies we must know the ingredients for ALL treats. Due to sensitivity no balloons are allowed in the building.

Facebook and Social Media

Social media is a great way to keep up with and in contact with friends and family. When you are posting regarding Lakeview, please keep a few things in mind:

1. Think before you post, your words have power.

2.Do not post pictures or information of children who are not yours. Privacy is important so do not post pictures or information about other students without parent permission.

3. If you have a question regarding events or information regarding Lakeview, your best bet is to always email your child's teacher or call the front office.

4. If you are unhappy with a situation or would like to share a concern, please always email your child's teacher or contact our front office.

5. Finally, stay positive. No one benefits when community members disagree on line.
