“The Know it Alls Show” came to Lakeview on Tuesday, February 14th to spend time with our 4th, 5th and 6th graders! This show came about from Scott and Patti’s love for entertaining kids and their admiration of the old-time variety shows. Who didn’t love the “I Love Lucy Show” or “The Carol Burnett Show”! These were classic comedy-variety shows and “The Know it Alls” will bring this flair to their own show. “The Know it Alls Show” has been carefully designed to combine education with entertainment… in what they like to call, “Educainment!” The show incorporated a fun, team building approach with a strong educational format, easy learning environment and plenty of audience participation! Please thank our PTA when you see them for sponsoring this unforgettable event for our students!

We opened our first day back with a whole school assembly that introduced our focus for this month: Building Lakeview’s Foundation Through Kindness, brick by brick. Our students helped to present this new initiative at the assembly. The energy that was generated at the assembly carried on through the whole week.
We will continue to build on this energy in the upcoming weeks as students and teachers catch others in the act of being kind. Each time someone witnesses a kind act, they are writing on a “kindness brick.” The brick is then presented to the kind person and added to one of several large red “walls” (see image) that are posted around the school.
We could not believe how many bricks were already added to the wall this week. We overheard many conversations about kindness and observed numerous students reading the bricks on the wall. We hope you will stop by to take a look at the amazing brick walls.
If you haven’t had a chance to complete the survey, it is not too late. The website is open until January 30th. The survey letter was sent home around November 16th so teachers, parents, guardians and students across Illinois have the opportunity to participate in the Illinois 5Essentials Survey: Organizing Schools for Improvement. As a parent, this opportunity will allow you to share your thoughts on the important elements of school effectiveness and help us guide school improvement. Parent and student identities will be kept completely confidential and survey responses will not be linked to any individual. Please make sure you are using this link for the 5 Essentials Parent Survey: https://survey.5-essentials.org/illinois/survey/parent/login/
Student-Led Conferences are scheduled for January 26th and 27th. These conferences will once again be student led. Your children will be showing what they have learned, what goals they have met and what goals they have set. We believe this is a great opportunity for the children to take ownership of their learning and explain their growth and goals. It is also a great time for you to ask them what you can do at home to help them meet their goals. We look forward to continuing our partnership with families to maximize student growth.
It is that time of year again for Celebrate Reading and Writing Night! The night will take place during conferences on Thursday, January 26th. This event connects perfectly with conferences because it is an amazing opportunity for students to show off their hard work in writing to their families. In addition, families have the opportunity to provide feedback to their students by writing notes with positive comments about their writing! The students always look forward to seeing all the notes and the look of pride on their faces is priceless! To prepare for the night, students have been creating one special writing piece to share that will be hanging in the hallway outside of their classroom. The students cannot wait to share this piece with their families! We hope to see everyone here on January 26th.
