Principal's Message

Dear Lakeview Families,

I want to thank you for a great start to our school year!  It is hard to believe the first term has already ended.  We hope you had a great fall break.

I also want to say thanks for the great support we had for the Lakeview Picnic.  We had a tremendous turnout and learned a few things that we will change for next year.  It is great to be able to interact with each other and build the Lakeview community.

SEP conferences will be held on November 6,7,8.  School will be dismissed at 1:10 on those days.  Watch for the sign up link soon.

Dr. Leite, our Assistant Principal, oversees our academic intervention program at Lakeview.  I asked her to write a brief explanation of how that runs.  Her is what she said:

“We have been conducting academic interventions since school started. Interventions are thirty-minute blocks during the school day in which students from every grade level can receive targeted support for struggles with math or literacy. At the beginning of the year, we hired a certified teacher, Angela Beesley, to help us in administering the program. Angela leads a group of 19 paraprofessionals who provide interventions in one of the classrooms, which they lovingly named Lion Academy. Each paraprofessional works with a small group of 4-6 students, using programs including 95% Group, Quickreads, Early Reading Intervention, and Sound Sensible. Students love going to Lion Academy to hone their skills and meet their math and literacy goals. We are grateful for the united partnership that our intervention team has with our teachers and administration.”

Finally, I wanted to give an update on a few items:

Thanks for all you do with your students.  The work you do at home coupled with the good things that are happening at Lakeview make for a quality education for our students.  We appreciate the opportunity to work with your children!
