November Conferences

We postponed our conferences in October, but our teachers are excited to talk with you at our conferences during the week of November 16.

Use this Sign-up Genius to reserve a virtual conference time with your child's teacher. Conferences will be from 4:00-6:00 p.m. each day from Monday through Thursday the week of November 16. You will meet with the teacher by using the same Zoom link that your child uses during the day (you may have to wait in the Zoom waiting room until the teacher lets you in, so please be patient).

Conferences are each 20 minutes long. We value this chance to talk with you about your child's progress, especially as we near the end of first trimester.

NOTE: Be sure to choose the correct teacher on the Sign-up Genius. Scroll across the tabs on top to find the teacher(s) you need. The first tab that will open is for 4K conferences.

Nov 6 - Picture day AND Material pickup

On Friday, November 6, we have combined two things to make it easier for families. This is an asynchronous Friday. Student pictures and student material pickup will both be at school that day. Please be sure to bring back the books your teacher gave you in the past.

Pictures are from 8:30-1:00. You must sign up for a picture appointment using this Sign-Up Genius link. You will find picture order information at this link as well as on the Sign-Up Genius. Please remember the following:

• One student per slot on the Sign-Up Genius (not one family per slot)

• Enter through the front door

• Everyone entering the school must wear a mask (except when smiling for a picture). This includes adults that attend with their students.

• There will be two photographers at opposite ends of our gym

• Families will exit out the side door for one way traffic through the picture area

• All Lakeview students - including Lakeview students in the South Milwaukee Virtual Academy - should sign up and get pictures taken

• There will be an option for makeup photos at a later date

Online Scholastic Book Fair

Our Scholastic Book Fair has gone online! Starting on November 9, you will be able to place orders for new books and support the Lakeview PTO. Online orders of at least $25 will ship free directly to your house. Click this link for more information about the book fair - starting on November 9, there will be a "shop" button, so please wait until then (this is how our PTO will receive Scholastic Dollars that directly benefit classrooms). We will remind you!

To celebrate literacy, our Lakeview teachers will be posting nightly, bedtime read-alouds during the Book Fair. You won't want to miss these! In order to see them, you will need to "like" the PTO Facebook page. Like it now so you are ready for these bedtime stories.

ROAR Awards

Do you have a Lakeview staff member that you would like to nominate for a ROAR Award? Of course you do ... you probably have 2 or 3 in mind right away! Our PTO graciously recognizes staff members that you nominate and one of the nominations each month receives a gift certificate. Your kind words mean a lot to our staff, so please use this link to submit a ROAR Award.

Lakeview PTO Spirit Wear

Don't forget! You can order the Lakeview spirit wear directly from Styled Aesthetic by clicking this link! This also supports the Lakeview PTO. Go Lions and thank you, PTO!

Meals during Virtual

All students can continue to receive 7 breakfasts and 7 lunches completely free! Please click this link for the most recent information from our Food & Nutrition staff. Pickup is 4-5 p.m. at the high school on Mondays and Thursdays. Just pull up to Door 29 (gym door). Our food service staff asks you to pre-order your meals to reduce waste - the link to pre-order is in the document above.

Culver's Night

The Lakeview Culver's Night is November 16. Mark your calendars and skip the dinner prep!
