Issue #101  October 20, 2016
Dear Lakeview Families,
Before you know it, Thanksgiving will be here! There is a lot we are thankful for at Lakeview:
*Our students and families for making daily attendance a priority since they know the habit of attendance will help them do well in the classroom and eventually in a job
*Our wonderful teachers who pour their energy into making each classroom an exciting place for exploration and knowledge so children do not want to miss out on learning
*Our support staff and community volunteers who provide the extra hands and attention our children need
We appreciate each one of you so much. We especially appreciate everyone's efforts to avoid taking extra time off during the Thanksgiving holiday. Just a few missed days here and there, even if they're excused absences, can add up to too much lost learning time and leave your child behind in school. School is closed on Thursday, November 24, 2016 and reopens Monday, November 28, 2016.
Thanks - Steve

Skeleton Scurry Jog-A-Thon
Lakeview's PTSA's only Fundraiser of the Year!

The Skeleton Scurry will take place on in one week on Thursday, October 27th 2016.    Please help us raise funds for the Lakeview PTSA. The PTSA raises money to provide enrichment programs that enhance our children's education, and build a strong community at Lakeview. 

This year the theme is Halloween, and students may wear a school-appropriate costume during their run time.  Last week students received  donation envelopes with details about the jog-a-thon such as FAQs, a comprehensive list of companies who match donations, prize rules and qualifications, a list of possible prizes they could win, donation receipts, a "pledge-example kids can use to say when asking for donations, and more. 

We are asking Lakeview families to show their pride for our school and to keep current PTSA programs in place by helping us reach our fundraising goal of $80, 000. This amounts to  $150 per student.   Any amount helps!

Donation envelopes are due no later than he day of the jog-a-thon, October 27th.

If you would like to volunteer to help on the day of the jog-a-thon, click on this Sign-Up Genius link.

Wanted: Class Photographers

Do you like to take pictures and have a child in the following classes?
  • Jensen (K)
  • Lapointe (K)
  • Fraley (1)
  • Friend (4)
  • Edwards (5)

We need class photographers for these classes!  The requirements are easy: take 20-30 photos of the students in your child's class. A class without a photographer means a class without a candid photos page in the yearbook. Halloween parties are an excellent time to snap photos for the yearbook!

What Are all the "Vote No on ST3 Signs" About?

This November we will have the chance to vote on Sound Transit's mass transit plan for King County, coined ST3.  The impact from ST3 will affect Lakeview families because it calls for light rail on the Bellevue portion of the Cross Kirkland Corridor, which is a precursor to transit running on the Kirkland portion of the CKC.  This is the trail that runs right by Lakeview Elementary.  If you'd like to read more information about ST3, please click on the links below, and remember to vote this November!
