Noon Dismissal on Wed, March 17 for in-person students

Life Inside the Bubble

This past week was "Kindness Week" for in-person students at Lakeview. But I have to tell you that we have the very kindest students at Lakeview and in SMVA every day. What is life like "inside the bubble" at Lakeview? Here are examples:

• Students in the hallway passing an adult frequently ask "How is your day?" in the same way as adults would at other places of work.

• We have awarded 319 Golden Lions since November for being safe, respectful, and engaged.

• We have had ZERO major behavior issues since in-person students returned on January 18. Do things happen now and then? Sure. But our students talk about it, take responsibility, and learn.

Lakeview is an incredible place because our students, staff, and families make it that way!

It happens in the small interactions that happen throughout every day. Our students are genuinely happy to be back together and our staff is great at building relationships. That work starts and ends in your home - thank YOU for the work it takes to raise young ladies and gentlemen who are excited about Lakeview and learning!

Report Cards - Friday

Report cards will be sent home in folders on Friday, March 19. Please take time to read over the comments and talk with your child about them. It will set your child up for success during the third and final trimester of the school year.

Stay Home if Sick!

4K Registration is Open

4K registration for the 2021-2022 school year is now open. Please read this information and follow the instructions for registration. Existing families received an email on February 26 with this same information - you will log into your Infinite Campus portal and add a new student to your family. If you have any question, contact the office at Lakeview. Please forward this information to anyone you know that might be interested in 4K for next school year. We can't wait to meet the class of 2035!

Scholastic Book Fair - online!

Lion Families,

The PTO is excited to offer another virtual Scholastic Book Fair. The book fair runs through Sunday, March 21st. Orders are expected to arrive by the end of March. This is the link to use during that time so that Lakeview benefits from your order.

Follow our PTO Facebook page for fun posts from our Lakeview students highlighting some of their favorite books and authors each day from March 8-21.

Forward Exam

All 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students will be involved in Forward Testing in April. The Forward Exam is the statewide test in Wisconsin. Although it did not happen in 2020 due to the pandemic, it is happening this year again. SMVA 3rd-5th grade students should watch for instructions from SMVA staff. In-person 3rd-5th grade students at Lakeview will have Forward Testing during the week of April 12. Since we need to account for every 3rd-5th grade student with this test, it is important that in-person students are present during the week of April 12. Please avoid vacations, doctor/dentist appointments, etc. during that week. Students that miss test sessions will need to make up the test on another date, which means they miss other instruction. More info will come as we get closer to the testing dates.
