Monday, May 25 - Memorial Day - no school
You might be surprised at the number of ways we can help connect you with resources and answer questions, not just about math, reading, science and other schoolwork, but also connecting you to mental health resources, providing information about food or insurance, helping families where English proficiency may be a factor in accessing resources, and so many other ways. These are things we actually do all year - no matter if we are face-to-face or virtual - and we do it because we value our families. Although we do not provide many of these services, we have people on staff who can help or direct you to the right place. Stay connected with us!

Ideas that can help in these crazy times
According to our mid-April Learner Access Survey (completed by families for 42% of our students), about 1 in 5 Lakeview students does not have a set time and place to engage in schoolwork each day. We encourage you to set up a special spot for your child as well as a daily schedule. Adults are doing the same thing right now. At the Sepersky house, my youngest child has a card table in one room and the "principal's office" is in my dining room. It helps (and nobody has been sent to the principal's office in quite some time!)
Here is a link to a "virtual calming room" with various ways to create calm and focus for students and adults.
Here are some parenting tips during the COVID-19 school closure, although I think these are great tips for all the time.

Please understand that by allowing your child's image to be included in the 5th Grade Recognition Video, it may be shared electronically by others to individuals beyond the control of Lakeview Elementary School or the School District of South Milwaukee. If you prefer that your child’s image NOT BE SHARED via video and slideshow, please contact your child’s 5th grade teacher by Friday, May 22nd for exclusion.
