Dear Lakeview Families,
April included many special events like field trips and our talent show. The performers were amazing!! Thank you to all of our families that came to cheer for our students. It is hard to believe that May is already here. We have more special events to look forward to like the rocket launch for our rocketry club and school traditions like field day. Please take a moment to read our newsletter by clicking here May 2016 Newsletter or additional events and information.
This week we celebrate our amazingly hard working staff during Teacher Appreciation Week. Both Mrs. Tarasiuk and I feel extremely fortunate to work alongside such a dedicated and talented staff of educators, and we have no doubt our parent community feels the same. Our generous PTA has planned a week of treats for our staff to enjoy. Thank you PTA for taking the time to recognize our staff in special ways.
As we enter the month of May, we will be wrapping up our assessments for this school year. This week, Wednesday May 4th, all fifth grade students will be completing a state-wide science assessment (ISA), which consists of one session given on the computer.
Between May 9th and May 17th, all students (Kindergarten – 6th grade) will complete the spring MAP assessment, one in reading and one in math given on separate days.
Registration for the 16-17 school year is now past due. Please complete and submit registration materials mailed home so we can be sure to have all students placed properly for the upcoming school year. Unfortunately, we will not be able to place students into classes without all necessary information on file. Please contact the main office for questions at 847-357-6600.
