Read all Summer!

Our district librarian recommends this website to sign up for free electronic books all summer long! We also had a visit from the South Milwaukee library about their summer reading program, which this year is a space theme! As a principal, I cannot stress this enough:

Students need to read for at least 20 minutes a day just to maintain their current skill level, and even more to progress. Students who experience "summer slide" from not reading have to start the following school year playing "catch up" in September instead of moving ahead right away. No matter if you use the links above or not this summer, please ensure that reading is part of every day.

Please fully charge the Chromebook before returning it on the 11th - it helps with updates that are performed over summer vacation.

Summer School registration has closed

The deadline for Summer School registration was May 3rd. In the weeks since, we have had families turn in registration forms or ask about Summer School. Since the deadline has passed, we are no longer accepting registrations.

Calendar for 2019-2020

As this year comes to a close on June 13th, please be sure you have already printed and carefully looked at next school year's calendar. It may be found at this link. This same page also has the 4K calendar for 2019-2020.

Color Run

The 2nd annual Lakeview color run is on June 7th. Please learn more about this fundraiser by clicking this link. We are in the early stages of making improvements to our playground on the east side of the school (the 4th/5th grade playground) and donations to this year's Color Run will help this effort. Thank you to our Lakeview PTO for their coordination of this event!
