Lakeview Elementary - We Know Every Child by Name & by Need

October 27, 2017

Hello Lakeview Families!

We had a great Red Ribbon Week and we are moving right into our Bobcat DASH! Thank you to all of our parents, community partners, families, and our PTA for your donations and time spent supporting our students! Feel free to join us during your child's Specials time to watch them participate in the DASH.

October 31 Character Parade

Join us outside of our school building starting at 8:00 am on October 31st. Students will exit through the 5th grade hall (near the front entrance) and walk around the building - ending up in our cafeteria and gym. Once students have entered the building - parents are welcome to follow them inside as Mrs. Lewis has prepared students to sing a few songs:) Be sure to bring your camera!

As a reminder - costumes should be related to book characters and no masks or weapons will be permitted.

Please contact your child's teacher if you have any questions.

Learner Qualities in the "Real World"

We want to hear from you!

“Judge a man by his questions rather than his answers.” – Voltaire

“We make our world significant by the courage of our questions and by the depth of our answers.” – Carl Sagan

Asking questions is one of the best ways to move forward in our schooling and in the work place. How do you use questioning in the real world?

Compulsory Attendance

We understand students miss school for various reasons. However, please understand that if your child has missed more than 8 school days (excused or unexcused) you will receive a letter from Lakeview regarding attendance. As the state requires students to be in attendance 90% of the year, Lakeview will continue to follow state guidelines regarding this issue. If you have any questions we are happy to talk you through the process.

Absence notes are due no more than 3 days after the date of the absent. After 3 days, the absence will be marked as unexcused.

PTA Membership Toolkit

A huge thank you to our Lakeview PTA for all they do to support Lakeview! Remember anyone can join PTA...grandparents, aunts, uncles, and friends.

Lakeview students and staff benefit from the most AMAZING PTA. The support of our PTA provides to our Lakeview learning community with the tools and resources to help each child be successful. Thank you in advance to all of our PTA members and especially our PTA president and board members!

Parents please be sure to send an email to and your child's teacher by 1:00pm to communicate ride changes. We will not release students to ride changes without confirmation from parents regarding ride changes.

Birthday Treats

Big image
We love celebrating birthdays with our students! When planning on bringing in birthday treats, only pre-packaged store bought products are allowed. To ensure there is time to distribute birthday treats to classrooms, please have them in the office no later than 2:00. We are unable to hold ice cream or popsicles so please do not send treats that will melt. Also, if a treat does not have a label of ingredients it will not be shared with the class. Due to allergies we must know the ingredients for ALL treats. Due to sensitivity no balloons are allowed in the building.

Facebook and Social Media

Social media is a great way to keep up with and in contact with friends and family. When you are posting regarding Lakeview, please keep a few things in mind:

1. Think before you post, your words have power.

2.Do not post pictures or information of children who are not yours. Privacy is important so do not post pictures or information about other students without parent permission.

3. If you have a question regarding events or information regarding Lakeview, your best bet is to always email your child's teacher or call the front office.

4. If you are unhappy with a situation or would like to share a concern, please always email your child's teacher or contact our front office.

5. Finally, stay positive. No one benefits when community members disagree on line.
