Hello Lakeview Families!
We appreciate the opportunities our teachers have had to meet with you during parent conferences. Good communication between school and families is one of the key ingredients for student success. Thank you so much for all you do to support your children and our teachers!
As a reminder, there is not school on Monday October 8th. We will welcome all of our students back on Tuesday October 9th.
Have a great weekend!
Looking for UIL Coaches!
We need you!
From Ms. Stuebe -
UIL is the University Interscholastic League, a battle of the wits and minds in different subject areas. My goal for Lakeview is to increase the number of students participating in UIL. Before we get students involved, I need you! Coaching a UIL team is a great way to share what you love and inspire others to use their talents and abilities, especially ones we don’t normally use in the classroom. Also, you can co-coach with a parent or teach if you want two brains instead of 1!
If you are interested in coaching a team, please complete this google form before Friday, September 21.
Here are a list of the events that are linked to the UIL website if you would like more information about the event, that our awesome students can compete in!
· A+ Art - Grades 4-5

New Program - Lakeview Littles
This year we will begin the “Lakeview Littles” program in the library. The Littles program is for any four- or five-year-old child that will be attending kindergarten at Lakeview Elementary during the 2019-2020 school year. The program is meant to provide incoming kindergarteners with an opportunity to be a part of the school prior to entrance. Your child will engage in storytime in the library and get to visit a different specials class to participate in a lesson. Your child will also be able to check-out a book from the library. The Littles program will take place on the last Friday of each month, beginning in October, from 7:50 am to 9:00 am. Parents must be able to attend with their child. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Conklin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
October 26 January 25 March 29
November 30 February 22 May 24
If you would like to participate in the “Lakeview Littles” program, please fill out and submit this google form.

Facebook and Social Media
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.
