Read-A-Thon at Lakeview

We are excited to announce that March 11-22 we are holding a Read-a-Thon each day at school. Each student should have been sent home with a flyer that has their own "Secret Code" to set up their online account with We use this Read-a-Thon as our big fundraiser for the school. We only do this fundraiser every other year. 2 years ago when we did this fundraiser we were able to raise over $7000. This money goes towards programs at our school. It helped pay for the t-shirts everyone got this year as well.

Each student who sets up their online account will get a prize from their teacher. In addition to this, the first class to have all their student accounts set up will get a bigger prize, to be determined.

Parents, please then share this information with others through email, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. As donations are made on behalf of your student, they will begin to earn money to spend towards prizes. For example: $25 will earn a student $3.75 to spend in the online store. Prizes range in price from $0.25 to $100 and include things like friendship rings, pencils, notebooks, bluetooth speakers, a microscope, and a portable DVD player.

Students will be reading in class each day, but they can also read at home and log their hours on their account.

Cash and check donations can also be made to Lakeview PTA. Please send money in a sealed envelope with your students name and teacher written on it.

Thank you to everyone who supports our Lakeview Lions!

March reading bookmark


Road to Success has been difficult for many students to log their minutes on the computer. Included in this newsletter is a bookmark that students may record their minutes on if they would like (you will need to print the bookmark). If students read 20 days, they may bring their bookmark to the library at the end of the month to get a prize. If Road to Success is working for you, please continue to use it. Road to Success has provided prizes for me to give out to those participating. If your child would like to be involved in other reading programs at the school, please visit my class web page. There are 5 other reading programs available.

Thank you,

Mrs. Hansen

Russian Spring Festival on April 11

In ancient Russia, villagers would have an annual festival to get the birds to come back after the long Russian winter, believing that the birds would bring Spring with them on their return. The villagers would sing songs about birds, tie treats for the birds around fence posts, and even paint themselves to look like birds.

To help bring back Spring, we are going to have a festival of our own. All are invited!

Thursday, April 11

3:30 - 4:30 in the Lakeview Gym

There will be pine cone bird-feeder making, face painting, and singing games. We are also looking for donations of the following:

• Cheerios

• Crisco

• Pine cones

If you have any questions, please contact Mr. McKinney at

Safe Utah App

Dear Parents,

Many of you may have heard about the SafeUT App that has been highlighted in the news and is currently being used in our secondary schools. This free app will now be available to students and their families at Lakeview and has two main functions:

1) Get help 24/7 during a crisis (call/text)

2) Report safety concerns to your school (violence, drugs, bullying, etc.)
- Personnel at the school are notified of the concern via email to investigate the issue.

During the next couple weeks all 4th, 5th and 6th grade students at Lakeview will be given a presentation on how to use the SafeUT App.

Attached is a short video explaining how it works and a link to a website with more information.

We hope this will provide another means for students to get help and a safe, anonymous way to report concerns at the school. If you have any questions please contact our social worker, Chris Miller, at the school or by email at

Thank you!
