PRINCIPAL'S CORNER

Hello Lakeview Families,
 
First of all, thank you for your kind words and well wishes as we welcomed little Sam into our home! He is a such a sweet, calm little boy; Amy, the boys and I are over the moon about him. Forgive a doting father for  sharing a photo...
 
Second, I am grateful to Trent Neugebauer, our associate principal; Steve Mezich, our principal substitute; and Debus, Kristin, Sandra in the main office for holding down the fort while I was away before winter break and on Tuesdays and Thursdays each week. Lakeview would not be what is it without them.
 
Last, we are looking forward to meeting with you for parent/teacher/student conferences the last full week of January. If you have not already signed up for a conference appointment, you can do so by clicking here:

Thanks - Steve
