Public Library Summer Reading Program

Students can sign up online and print their own game boards from home, or they can visit the public library to sign up. Readers who complete their game boards and turn them in at the public library will receive prizes and will be entered into the grand prize drawing for an iPad or a Nintendo Switch, along with various gift cards. In addition, there will be various programs throughout the summer for kids to participate in! Please be sure to participate and visit the public library this summer.

WSD Parent Satisfaction Survey

It is the vision of the Wentzville School District to be a model of excellence that sets the standard and maximizes the potential of every student. In order to continuously improve on our commitment to provide a quality educational experience for your child or children, we ask that you take the time to complete this short survey.

LVE Students Continue MAP Testing

Throughout the past three weeks, Lakeview students in Grades 3-6 have been participating in the Missouri Assessment Program (MAP). MAP is one way we measure student achievement as well as our progress with curricular and state goals and standards. As we move into our final week of testing, please continue to help our students shine by making sure they get plenty of rest each night and have a healthy breakfast each day. We also ask that you ensure that your child arrives to school each day on time and you avoid scheduling appointments during testing hours. Finally, we recommend that you talk to your child about doing his or her best on the test, but not to the extent that he or she is worried or stressed. This is not a test for which students study; it is a chance for them to show what they know!

News from Child Nutrition

For the remainder of the school year, the lunch menu will consist of one popular item and a Manager's Special. This is in an effort to control the food cost for the remainder of the year, as schools are trying to use their current inventory.

The menus have been changed in Nutrislice and are visible to parents.
