Lakeview Elementary and the PTA are offering a “Start Your Art” workshop for the Reflections program on Tuesday, October 6th from 3:00 – 4:00 pm.   We will provide materials for students to create their works of art (they may choose Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, and/or Visual Arts). Both a teacher and a PTA Reflections committee member will be there to answer any questions about the Reflections program, encourage the students, and help fill out the entry forms.

If you are interested in your child participating, please sign the permission slip the students brought home today or download one here:

Welcome back to our returning families and to our new families, welcome to the Lakeview community!  As a PTA, our hope is to provide the students and families at Lakeview Elementary with fantastic programs that benefit everyone.

With your support, we can continue to make Lakeview academically challenging and nurturing for our children.  We invite you to join the Lakeview PTA.  Your contribution, whether it is your time, knowledge, or resources, makes a huge difference.  If you have never attended a PTA meeting, we highly encourage you to come check us out.  We will be meeting the second Wednesday of every month at 1:15 PM in the lounge (see Meetings Calendar in this packet).

Visit our sites:  On our PTA website, you will find a calendar of events, forms, flyers, and other useful information.  We will provide reminders and updates on our Facebook page.

If you have any questions, please contact Carrie Emerick at or 847-496-0262.
