Principal’s Message for August 23rd
We have had a GREAT first week here at Lakeview. The students reacquainted themselves with old friends, while meeting new ones. We had our first PBIS assembly and ran through all the stations to remind ourselves of what the 3B’s mean. We introduced our theme, “Whole Squad Ready”. We discussed with the students what this theme means to Lakeview. The students and teachers worked on building a fantastic classroom community while being introduced to the new curriculum. We look forward to another wonderful week next week.
On Monday we welcome our kindergartners to Lakeview. Upon arrival, the kindergarten children will meet in the gym to find their teacher. There will be plenty of staff in the gym to help students find their way. The teachers will have the students’ line up, take attendance and bring the students down to their classrooms. Parents, you are more than welcome to come into the gym and take pictures before we bring your children down to their rooms.
At the end of the day, if your kindergarten child is a busser, the teachers and patrols will put them on their bus. If they are a walker the teachers will meet the parents by front door.
Our first PTA meeting will be held on Monday, August 26th at 9:00AM in the teacher’s lounge. All new kindergarten parents, please come join us.
Map testing begins next week. The schedule is as follows…..
Run to Read:
District 54 is hosting its annual Run to Read, which will be held on Sunday, Sept. 22, 2019 at Dirksen Elementary School in Schaumburg. The day includes school mascot races at 7:30 a.m., 100-yard and 400-yard dashes for children at 8 a.m., a 5K run at 9 a.m. and a 1-mile family walk at 9:15 a.m. Although you can register at any time, even the morning of the race, you will save $5 and be guaranteed a t-shirt in the size you requested if you register by Friday August 30. The Run to Read is an awesome opportunity to promote healthy living by encouraging your children to exercise, or even better, by joining them on the walk or run. The event also supports our goal of collecting 1,000 children’s books for every classroom in District 54. To register, visit sd54.org/runtoread.
Each year, our students participate in a number of safety drills such as fire drills, hard lockdown drills and shelter in place drills to be prepared in case of emergency situations. We have attached a letter from our Superintendent about these drills.
You can pay your students fees through your parent portal account. This includes your $50 consumable fee, optional instructional device insurance (grades 3-8 only), and milk.
If you believe your student will qualify for the Free Lunch Program and therefore will qualify for a fee waiver, do not pay the consumable material fee at this time. Applications for the Free Lunch Program are available online and in the school office.
The consumable fee will increase by $15 if payment is not received by November 15th, $25 if not received by February 1st, and $35 if not received by April 1st.
If you would like to purchase instructional device insurance but do not have the option to do so through your portal, please contact our school office for assistance. Instructional device insurance must be purchased before the date of device issuance.

Every Wednesday and Thursday, Lakeview PTA volunteers serve pre-ordered restaurant prepared meals to students and teachers. We have created an online ordering system. Please click on the atached link for instructions.
