Lakeview’s May Update

May 2016

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.

Upcoming Assessments:
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.

16-17 Registration
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.

Lakeview Update

Posted April 11th, 2016 by Miss Rizzo

Our students in third through sixth grade did a fabulous job on their first day of the PARCC test (Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers, a state assessment). Please see the schedule reminder below. If a child arrives to school late, he/she will not be able to enter their classroom or test with his/her class once the test is in session. Please help your child get the best start to the day by arriving on time – our doors open at 8:25am. We appreciate all you do at home to help your child do his/her best with a calm, cheerful morning and a healthy breakfast after a good night’s sleep.  Your encouragement to do their best is also helpful. This is their chance to “show what they know!” Lakeview students performed very well on the PARCC assessment last year, and they are very prepared to do well again this year! Today was a great start!

Student Enrollment Forms
The district recently mailed home Student Enrollment Forms for the 2016-2017 school year. Your child’s Student Enrollment Form must be returned to the school office for your child to be enrolled for the 2016-2017 school year. Please update any new information so your child’s records are accurate.  If you are renting your home, an updated lease must be on file for residency to maintain your child’s enrollment at Lakeview.


We are grateful to our PTA for all that they do for our school. Students really look forward to Muffins with Moms, birthday books, Fun Food, Tuesday Treat, assemblies, Donuts with Dads and so much more. Getting involved is a great way to see your child in the school environment and to support our school. Most parents find it fun and rewarding. Your time will make a difference. We have jobs of all sizes. If you would be able to give a little time to our school, please contact me directly before April 21. I would be happy to help you find the position that would best meet your interests and schedule for this year and next.

Here are a few updates:

Schaumburg Parent University Classes

Schaumburg Parent University (SPU) is designed to involve more parents in the life of the school, to strengthen family relationships, and to improve parenting skills that will ultimately result in improved student success academically, socially and emotionally. There are two upcoming evening programs.

  • Mindfulness: An Interactive Approach to Managing Your Child’s Anxiety or Depression. District 54 Social Worker Trisha Johnson will explain how to use mindfulness in your everyday life and activities you can do with your children to help them manage difficult emotions. This discussion for adults only will be held from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. March 10 in the District 54 Board Room, 524 E. Schaumburg Road, in Schaumburg.

No School – March 15

District 54 schools will be closed on Tuesday, March 15, due to the primary election. The safety of our students and staff is our top priority in District 54. On most days our doors are locked; visitors must ring the doorbell and be admitted by staff; and then visitors must proceed to the office first to sign in. However, on election days, 24 of our 28 school sites serve as polling places and therefore the doors must be kept open. State law requires schools to serve as polling locations if asked and in Cook County about one-third of the polling places are in schools. In years with a presidential election, higher numbers than usual are expected to vote. Therefore, in order to put safety first, District 54 students and staff will not attend school on March 15.

Severe Weather Preparedness Week

The week of February 28th through March 5, 2016 is Severe Weather Preparedness Week in Illinois.  Sometime this week we will be preparing our students in case of a weather emergency.  We will have our students practice the shelter in place drill.  Please be sure to discuss this very important drill with your child. Thanks in advance for your help.

District 54 Summer Band and Orchestra 2016

Registration for District 54’s Summer Band and Orchestra program has begun!  District 54 students who have completed fifth, sixth, or seventh grade and have had lessons on their instrument for at least one school year are eligible to enroll.

  • Summer Band and Orchestra will take place July 11-28 (Mondays-Thursdays) at Frost Junior High School.

If you have questions, please contact the band/orchestra teacher at your school or call 847-357-5138.

At this point new kindergarten students registering for the 2016-17 school year may come into the office at any time to do so.  If you know a neighbor or friend with a new kindergartner please pass this message along.
