Lakeview Elementary - We Know Every Child by Name & by Need
February 22, 2018
Hello Lakeview Families!
Ace Junior Chef Competition
Shoes for Africa
We will continue collections through the end of February. Thank you so much for supporting our students and those across the world!
Philanthropy Fair 3/6
The Philanthropy Fair will be hosted on March 6th at Lakeview during Open House. Because we want 5th grade GATES students and their helpers to be able to share classroom work with their parents, 5th Grade Open House will be from 5:00-6:00. Students participating in the P.F. are advised to come early so that they can show their parents what they’ve been working on in the classroom before returning to the gym to set up. The Philanthropy Fair will be from 6:00-7:45 (and then clean up). At the entrances to the gym, we will have ticket booths set up where visitors can purchase tickets for a $1 each. Tickets can be used at the various booths to play games or purchase snacks and slime J ALL proceeds from the event will go to the causes each booth represents (DFW Humane Society, Cook Children’s, organizations that support veterans, etc.). Please invite your neighbors and friends to come support our causes!
PTA Remind 101 Account
We wanted to let you know about a new way to help you stay connected to the latest Lakeview PTA news. We’ve set-up a Remind 101 account just for the PTA. If you aren’t familiar, Remind 101 allows you to sign up to receive texts from a specific group. We love the idea that we can quickly get information out to our parents. To join, you can text @tclakeview to 81010 OR click this link: https://www.remind.com/join/tclakeview

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.
