Hello Lakeview Families,
It is wonderful to have your student back at Lakeview! Watching our 1st-5th grade students arrive with such big smiles on their faces was exciting. We are looking forward to welcoming our newest Leopards, our kindergarteners, on Friday. Your children did a fantastic job adjusting to new teachers and new classmates. The school year is off to a great start!
Our teachers and staff have worked tirelessly to prep for the year, including curriculum night early on so Lakeview families had a chance to connect with their children's classroom teacher before the start of the year. I am impressed, but not surprised, by the caliber of educators working at Lakeview.
I hope you will keep the Sept 15th school Ice Cream Social on your calendars. It will be a terrific way for us to connect as a school community.
Thank you for sharing your children with us everyday, it is a great trust and responsibility.
