A Letter from the Principal
May 20, 2013
Dear Lakewood Community,
I'm very proud of our students for their perseverance and hard work during our last two weeks of CST testing--thank you for your support at home with consistent bed times and your donations of classroom snacks. Last week was also Teacher Appreciation Week. The generous luncheons that you provided were an amazing show of community and care for our teachers and staff. Wow! We are honored by your efforts and inspired by your trust in us to care for and teach your children.
As we enter these last few weeks of school, we enter a time of celebration, reflection, and most of all, ENERGY! I would like to thank you for your energy and involvement, your communication and support from home this year. I look forward to our time of sharing and celebration at Open House this Wednesday May 22 from 6:30-7:30pm. There will be a variety of activities, including our science fair, book fair, and the PTA silent auction in our staff room.
Looking to next year, if you would like to make a class placement request, it is most important to talk with your child's teacher. Any written requests should be turned in to the office by May 28th. Students' first day of school will be Wednesday, August 21st. Class lists will be posted on Friday, Augst 16th. If your child is on an affidavit of residency, the affidavit will have to be renewed and submitted in August for class placement.
Lakewood is looking for energetic and positive adult role models to help supervise students during lunch starting in the fall. Are you interested in being a noon aide at our school M-F for about an hour each day? Please inquire in our school office before the end of the school year.
It has been my pleasure and honor to work with you and your children this year.
Have a wonderful summer,
