Welcome Back
A word from your PTSA presidents

Well it's that time; the beginning of the school year is officially here!  On behalf of the Lakeview PTSA we want to welcome all the new families as well as those who are returning from last year. We hope you had a most enjoyable summer and are well-rested and ready for an amazing 2017-2018 school year.  Go Leopards!

As the new co-presidents of the PTSA we invite you to come meet your Lakeview PTSA at the Back to School Ice Cream Social on September 14 and learn how you can make a difference in your children's academic and social life. 

Wishing each of you a successful 2017-2018 school year.  We cannot wait to get to know each and every one of you.  If you'd like to know a little more about us (and who wouldn't?!) you can click here to meet your new PTSA presidents.
