Our second graders did an outstanding job performing their musical Bugz. They sang, danced and even memorized all their lines. The show was very entertaining and included songs about going on picnics, army ants, and being a lady. We have incredibly talented students here at Lakeview!
Yesterday, the sixth grade students at Lakeview celebrated their accomplishment of completing the D.A.R.E. program with their leader, Officer Bending of the Hoffman Estates Police Department. The D.A.R.E. mission is, “Teaching students good decision-making skills to help them lead safe and healthy lives.” To live the mission statement, each week the students participated in lessons focused on teaching them about important topics and issues, while using the D.A.R.E. Decision Making Model to analyze common situations they may encounter. The students learned many valuable lessons and simple ways to handle difficult situations.
At the end of the program, every student was assigned to write an essay explaining what they learned in the program, in order to summarize the key lessons they learned. Many even added personal experiences to make stronger connections to what they learned. Officer Bending recognized and awarded three students from each classroom for the essays that went above and beyond. From Miss de Pau’s classroom the winners were: Martin, Samira, and Agnes. Miss DeFalco’s winners were: Jackson, Eden, and Maddy. Miss Rizzo’s winners were: Jonathan, Gabby, and Andrea. Congratulations to Andrea for winning the award for Lakeview’s 2015 Most Inspiring D.A.R.E. Essay. Andrea then had the privilege of reading her essay to the entire audience.
Through Officer Bending’s instruction, the teachers of Lakeview are confident that the sixth graders are well equipped with the tools they need to make decisions to keep themselves safe and healthy.We would like to thank our wonderful PTA for supplying our graduates and families with our celebratory treat, our parents for coming out to support their children in this memorable event, and Mrs. Rosenblum and Mrs. Tarasiuk for their continued support. Another thank you to Mayor McLeod, Officer Marak and his impressive partner Dozer, Chief Bos, and Trustee Stanton for taking time to also support our students in this celebration. Lastly, a huge thank you to Officer Bending for coming out each week and making this process so much fun for our students and extremely educational for them. Below are some pictures from the event. Parents, if you’d like your child’s individual picture, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

Dear Lakeview Families,
I hope Spring Break gave you an opportunity to make some new memories as a family. I loved taking my daughter to the bus stop and hearing my boys’ stories when I picked them up after school -the simple pleasures of being home.
Just one week back and we are in full-swing again. We are looking ahead to an exciting month of April with activities like a family ice cream social and our second graders performing in their music program..
Starting next week, we will begin our Spring session of MAP testing. Students have used the fall and winter MAP scores to set goals for the spring session. We know all our students have the ability to not only meet their individual growth targets but to exceed them. Students understand that it takes daily determination and hard work to achieve any goal, and they have certainly risen to the challenge. They have remained focused on their goals all year long and put forth tremendous effort each day. They have shown pride in their accomplishments and their work. We know that when Lakeview students put their hearts and minds to a task, they can definitely achieve it. We are eagerly anticipating the students’ success in reaching their goals. Thank you for the conversations you have had with your child(ren) about their academic goals and the action steps they have committed too. We are excited to see the growth of all our students.
Community Service Project
We have joined the Keller Interact Club’s community shoe drive that will benefit children in Africa. We are excited to help out with this amazing initiative! If you begin your spring cleaning, please keep the shoe drive in mind. We will collect shoes fromtoday until April 9th. We thank you in advance for your generosity.

Failure to review your on-line registration or to sign and return these documents by the deadline date will deny your child’s access to the Internet or network for the 2015-2016 school year and he/she will not be able to access the above until the new registration and internet forms are returned.” Please note that District and state assessments may occur on secure web based browsers.

All District 54 schools will be closed tomorrow, Thursday, Feb. 19, 2015. The National Weather Service has issue a wind chill advisory until noon Thursday, which calls for wind chill values as low as -26.
Our number one priority every day is keeping children safe. We have about 8,000 students who ride a bus. The other 6,500 students either walk or get a ride to school. We cannot assume that all students can get a ride to school on a cold weather day. We also can’t assume that all children will be dressed appropriately for this weather. Thank you for your understanding and support.
All after-school and evening activities at schools on Feb. 19 are canceled as well. The Rafferty Administration Center will be open and the School Board meeting scheduled for 7 p.m. Feb. 19 will be held.
The District 54 Choral Festival scheduled for 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 18, will still occur. The event is located at Frost Junior High School.
The Hoffman Estates Park District, Schaumburg Park District and YMCA have announced that they will be offering child care for elementary school students when schools close for cold weather days. For more information, visit the websites below.
- The Campanelli YMCA will offer a drop-in program for any child in kindergarten through sixth grade at its facility at 300 W. Wise Road in Schaumburg. The cost is $38 per child. Children will be engaged in active games and activities throughout the day and will have the opportunity to use the gym and the pool. Please send your child with a lunch and a drink. Register at drop off or reserve your spot today. Visit http://www.campanelliymca.org for more information.
- The Schaumburg Park District will offer care at the Community Recreation Center, 505 N. Springinsguth Road. The program is available only to children currently registered in the KASPER or Kapers program and is offered from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Children will enjoy crafts, games, gym activities, swimming and an afternoon snack. Please send a labeled swim suit, towel and sack lunch (reminder, we are peanut free). The cost is $38/child. Fees will be collected at the time of sign in at the CRC. Visit www.parkfun.comfor more information.
- The Hoffman Estates Park District will offer child care for students in kindergarten through sixth grade from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Triphahn Center, 1685 W. Higgins Road. Students will take a field trip to Poplar Creek Bowl. The cost is $38 per child. Registration is available online using code #156415 (click here) or at the Triphahn Center Ice Arena service desk in the morning. You MUST show proof of registration if you registered online. Breakfast will not be served and children must bring a sack lunch and drink. Please contact Jessica at email@example.com with any questions. Open to residents and non-residents.
All District 54 schools will be closed on Monday, Feb. 2, 2015, due to the weather. All after-school and evening activities are canceled as well.
The decision to close school is not one we make lightly. Our top concern is whether we believe the more than 14,000 students we serve can get to school safely (whether they walk, take a bus or ride in a car).
District 54 makes every effort to keep our schools open, but circumstances beyond our control (such as today’s blizzard) sometimes dictate that we close. Thank you for your understanding and support. The decision to close schools is made one day at a time.
