Forward Exams

Our 3rd grade students will finish Forward exams on Monday, and our 5th grade students will test on April 15, 17, and 18. Please be sure your students are here on time, all day, every day unless truly sick. If you are leaving early for a Spring Break vacation and your 5th grade student will be absent part of the upcoming week, please email or call your teacher right away so we can be sure to complete all portions of the test.

Please be sure your child has a working pair of headphones at school for the test. You can also help by making sure your child gets plenty of sleep, a good breakfast on testing days, and some recreation outside each evening. Results of the Forward exam are not released until the following September.

Thank you, PTO!

Our Spring Luau Dance was a success, thanks to the work of our Lakeview PTO! Even if the weather was cold outside, our gym was a tropical paradise. It was truly a community-building event!

Part of that process means a nomination period leading to an annual election of officers. Nominations for PTO officers are now open, and the election will be at the May 16 PTO meeting. Executive board officers include the president, secretary, and treasurer. If you would like to nominate yourself or someone else for one of these positions, you may send the nomination to the PTO's email address, which is:
