Field Day

Field Day was a HUGE success!  Dispite the rain, we had opening cermonies in the gym which started with the parade of teams.  We then moved to outside and played for 45 minutes until the rain really started to come down.  We then went inside and played gagga ball, silent ball, four corners and had a dance party.  Once the sun came out, we were outside all afternoon.  We may be a little wet and muddy but had an unforgettable day!  Thank you to all our volunteers for helping us out today.  A big thank you goes to Mr. Wolski for creating a PEAK MOMENT we will always remember.

Principal’s Message for May 31, 2019

Lions,

We cannot believe this school year will soon be ending.  We have had an incredible year and would like to thank our parent community for supporting us.  We hope your received our note of appreciation and took time to enjoy a cup of tea because you are all “tea-rrific”.

Field Day Teams

Today the students switched into their Field Day Teams.  Students do not stay with their homeroom class for Field Day.  Each team is comprised of kindergarten through sixth graders. Our sixth grade students are the captains for each team.  This is an excellent leadership opportunity for each sixth grader.  Our theme for Field Day is based around Colleges and Universities.  Each student will meet in their team to find out what college/university they are representing.  We ask students to try to dress in the colors or swag of the college/university they will represent.  Field Day is Tuesday, June 4.  Please make sure to send an extra water bottle to school (with their name on it) and put sunscreen on your child.  Students MUST wear gym shoes to participate in most of the events.  The students are outside most of the day.  Opening ceremonies are at 8:45AM and the day begins at 9:15AM.  Feel free to come for opening ceremonies even if you cannot help.  If you are helping out, please be here by 8:40AM.

6th Grade Parents

You are invited on the last day of school to participate in our tradition of sending off our 6th graders.  If you are interested in joining us, please be at Lakeview at 11:00am.  Upon dismissal, the entire school will line up along the walls of Lakeview School.  Once in position, the 6th grade students will exit the school by walking the halls of Lakeview seeing each staff member and student.  Parents can join the line and help say goodbye and good wishes to our sixth graders as they pass by.  At 11:20, the 6th grade students, teachers and parents will end in the gym for a final social gathering until dismissal at 11:40.  Bring your cameras!  If interested, come to the office to sign in and we will show you were to go.
