November PTA Newsletter

Posted November 7th, 2014 by Miss Rizzo

Dear Lakeview Families,

We had a fun and festive Halloween on Friday thanks to all of the help of our PTA/parent volunteers. Thank you so much for the games, crafts and activities as well as the delicious treats. We enjoyed seeing all of the creative ideas. Students had a fabulous time! Students also enjoyed seeing their friends at our PTA movie night earlier this month. A huge thank you to our PTA for sponsoring this special event. We are glad so many families were able to join us.


We hope you’ll be able to join us as we honor service men/women on Veteran’s Day with a special program on Tuesday, November 11 at 6pm in the Lakeview gym. We also are hosting our next family night on Thursday, November 18. We will be offering the opportunity for families to participate in a turkey trot or printmaking. Fliers for both events are attached.


MAP testing begins this month. Students have been working hard each day to achieve the goals they set and shared with you at parent teacher conferences. We look forward to seeing them “show what they know” when they participate in MAP testing beginning November 17.

Information about our Illinois School Report Card can be found inside the newsletter. If you have any questions or need anything, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Thank You, Lakeview Leaders!

Lakeview Leaders is a group of students who are dedicated to improving Lakeview in many ways throughout the year. Lakeview Leaders recently spent some time doing some community service, picking up trash outside of our school. With their help, Lakeview continues to be a beautiful place to learn. Thank you for all your hard-work!

Lakeview Update from Mrs. Rosenblum

Posted September 8th, 2014 by Miss Rizzo
Dear Lakeview Families,
We could not be more proud of our students. They are working so hard and already learning new things!  During the next few weeks they will have an opportunity to show what they know on the MAP (Measure of Academic Progress) test. I have attached a schedule for your reference. We ask that you help your child do his/her best by getting a good night’s sleep, eating a healthy breakfast and arriving to school on time. MAP results will be shared with you at parent teacher conferences.Click the following link to download our  Map Schedule for Lakeview Families .
We have two exciting events coming up this month – fun for the whole family! Please scroll down to view the invitations. You can print the attachment, complete the form and return it to the office or copies will also be coming home with your children tomorrow.
We hope to see you at the Family Nights!

Back-to-Campus and Curriculum Night

Posted September 2nd, 2014 by Miss Rizzo

Wow, this year’s Back-to-Campus was a hit! So many families came out to support the students and get them ready for a brand new school year. From face-painting, temporary tattoos, food, music, and more, the staff and families of Lakeview had a wonderful time kicking off our school year!Families also had a chance to hear some important information about their children’s teachers and classrooms, so that together, we can set the students up for success. Below are some of the photos from that night.

A Letter From Your Principal

Posted August 6th, 2014 by Miss Rizzo
August 2014
Dear Lakeview Families,
Welcome back to our returning families and welcome to our new families! We hope you are having a fabulous summer enjoying time with your children. Warm days spent riding bikes, swimming and playing together go by so quickly. The memories shared sure do create a lasting bond.
We are looking forward to an incredible 2014-2015 school year with you. We are dedicated to bringing out the very best in your children and helping them achieve their highest potential. We have already been hard at work preparing to ensure your child’s success as he/she makes significant growth as a reader, writer and mathematician. Our talented staff members have devoted a significant amount of time this summer attending training, planning meetings, setting up their classrooms and reading professional materials.
We have several exciting dates to share with you:
  • Thursday, August 14th, 9am-12 noon and 6-8pm is School of Information Day. Stop by our gym where class lists will be posted with teacher and classroom assignments. The PTA will be there to greet you and share information. Our office staff will be available to answer questions. Medical forms for our school nurse may be dropped off this day or any day after August 12th.
  • Monday, August 25th, 5-7pm is our Back to School & Curriculum Night. Families can drop off supplies and hear their teacher present important information. More details can be found below.
  • Tuesday, August 26th is the first day of school for first through sixth grade students.
  • August 26th-28th is kindergarten screening. Appointment times are being mailed home.
  • Tuesday, September 2nd is the first day for kindergarten students.
We start the drop off routine on the very first day of school to form good habits. I ask that you say good bye to your child at the school doors. We ask that only students enter the building – even on the first day of school. Staff members will be on hand at each of the doors to escort any children that are unsure of where to go. Staff members will be on hand the entire first week. You may also help your child practice walking from the door to the classroom during the Back to School/Curriculum Night event. For special events or office business, parents are welcome to be buzzed in the doors on Washington Street to sign into the office and get a visitor’s pass. We had new security equipment installed this summer that will make it easier for us to recognize guests at the door.
We are committed to making a deep and genuine difference in the lives of our students. We are eager to get started. We can’t wait to see you and your children!  If we can be of any assistance, please contact us.
Laura Rosenblum and Julie Tarasiuk
