Lakeview News October 12, 2015

Welcome to the Lakeview News

The goal of the Lakeview News is to show the joy and learning that happens every day at Lakeview (including a vocabulary game called "Who Am I?" in Ms. Llanes/Douma's class above). You can access archives for the PTSA-produced Leopard Tales newsletter, as well as view an archive of both the Leopard Tales and the Lakeview News, at the links below:

Fall Conferences Mon-Thur, LEAP Fri

We are excited to meet with you and your student at our upcoming parent-teacher-student Goal Setting Conferences today through Thursday! If you have a problem with the appointment time you selected please contact your student's teacher directly as soon as possible.

Remember that school ends at 12pm on October 12, 13, and 15th for conferences. Busses will run at 12:10pm on those days and students who receive free- and reduced-lunch will receive a bag lunch before heading home on those days. Wednesday is typical with lunch served and a 2pm ending time for students.

Friday is not a school day for students, teachers will be collaborating with other LWSD elementary teachers and receiving professional development on using technology in the classroom.

The Joy of School

Here are a few of our favorite scenes since our last Lakeview News (tap/click to enlarge):

Author Jon Scieszka speaks to 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades; Geologists Rachel, Skyler, and Selena examining properties of their mock rocks in Llanes/Douma; Berke and Caden finding causes and effects in their reading book in Brown-Tiffany; Edward's fifth graders trying to get toothpaste back IN the tube (Word, once spoken, can't be taken back); Stuart Barry (Phipps/Boradori) “book tasting” during reading rotation; Sofia's writing workshop notebook in Ms. Friend's class.

Jog-A-Thon this Wednesday

Lakeview PTSA’s ‘Stache Dash Jog-a-thon 2015 is an all-school event scheduled for Wednesday, October 14th from 9:20-11:20, depending on your students grade level. This is our main fundraiser and ask families to make a generous donation. It pays for programs like science enrichment, art docent program, IXL and Reflex math enrichment, classroom materials, teacher appreciation, and field trip grants, not to mention events like the Science Fair and Family Dance Night. In addition, this year we need to fund our new PE Equipment and new Netbook computers. Our PTSA provides numerous opportunities for our children that would not otherwise be funded by the state or district budgets.

Reflections - "Let Your Imagination Fly"

Ms. Gahnberg's Kindergarteners

The PTSA Art Reflections contest is an amazing opportunity for children to create (all kinds of art - photography, dance, writing, composing, painting, drawing etc.). We highly recommend looking into this and see if it is something your child might be interested in.

Entries are due Oct 28th by 3:30pm, click below for more information:

Thank you to Google, Kirkland, and LWSD for a Fantastic New Field!

Last Thursday we had a ribbon cutting for our new field with Kirkland Mayor Amy Walen and LWSD Superintendent Dr. Traci Pierce in attendance, along with representatives from Google and SRM Development. We want to thank Google, Kirkland, and LWSD for the generosity and collaboration that made our new field field possible!
