Spirit Week

Next week our Student Council is leading Spirit week while students will be allowed to “dress-up” for spirit day themes, they must come to school dressed appropriately. Students who do not choose to dress according to the theme for the day must wear regular school dress code.

Dress Up Day Themes


Monday – Costume day. No masks, face point, hoods, or anything above the shoulders.

Tuesday – Twin Day

Wednesday – Hat Day

Thursday – Crazy Hair/Mismatch Day

Friday – Pajama Day and this must be appropriate PJ's that follow school dress code.

Each day is $1.00 to participate. Each team will be competing to show who is the most spirited and the proceeds from each spirit week go to funding the May Dance for the students.

Time to Get Your Spirit on!

Veteran's Day

Veteran’s Day is rapidly approaching. Lakeview Junior High would like to take the opportunity to recognize and honor those who have served or are currently serving our country in the armed services. We are asking that you fill out the form below and have your son/daughter return it to school by Monday, October 31th. If you have a friend or a family member who is currently serving or who has served our country, please write his/her name, the war they fought in (if applicable), the military branch served under, and the name of your Lakeview student. A star will then be placed on the wall outside of the main office. You are welcome to stop in and view our display after November 10th. Thanks for your support of this project.

Holiday Assistance

The holidays are quickly approaching along with all the wonderful memories made during these special times. The holidays are an enjoyable time with family and friends, however, that does not mean that they are not stressful! We realize some families may need some assistance providing a memorable holiday for their children. Pickerington Schools are teaming up, once again, with the Violet Township Fire Department to help provide some assistance for families in need during this holiday season.

For those out and about during the holiday season, you may see big red boxes throughout the community and in the schools. If you would like to donate a new toy/gift for the holiday season it can be placed in the big red boxes. Suggestions for gift donations include, action figures, activity books, art supplies, bath & body items, Barbie dolls, blocks/building sets, board games, books, crafts, Disney items, fashion accessories, headphones/earbuds, handheld game devices, jewelry, Legos, make-up & hair accessories, perfume/cologne, puzzles, sports equipment, stuffed animals, toy trucks, and video games. If you would prefer to donate in other ways, such as gift cards, please send them to the school office.

If you would like an application for holiday assistance this year, please contact your school counselor: 7th graders - Amy_Weinrich@plsd.us & 8th graders- Sarah_Geiger@plsd.us or call 614-830-2200. The application is also below. Please only one application per household. This application is handled in a confidential manner; however, the information will be shared with local agencies. More details will be shared with applicants. The deadline for applications in will be NOVEMBER 18th, 2016.

Sack Lunch

Please be aware that if your child receives a lunch detention or an ISS, they will receive a sack lunch on the day that they serve the detention or ISS. Your child is always permitted to pack a lunch on this day, if they prefer.

Pass/Fail forms

Attached below is the pass/fail form. This form can be used for all high school level classes that students take at the jr. high. Students will get the credit for this class, but the grade for the class will not be carried on to their high school transcript. This means the grade will not impact their high school GPA.

The high school classes at the jr. high this year are: Algebra I, Honors Geometry, Spanish I, Spanish II, French I, German I, Integrated Science, Gifted English 9, Art Appreciation, Theater, and Physical Education 9.

These forms must be completed and returned BEFORE the completion of the course. Year-long courses must be submitted by May 10. For trimester courses, the form must be completed before the class is completed. Any student wishing to take a course pass/fail this first trimester, must complete and return the form by October 27.

Additional forms are available in the office and should be returned to the school counselor.

Socktober

Last day to bring socks is Monday, October 31. Please consider donating to this great cause to help the homeless in central Ohio.
