Welcome to Lakewood Elementary School,
where our motto is: "Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Safe."
Our mission is to instill in our students high standards for academic achievement, integrity, leadership and responsible citizenship.
We believe all students can and want to learn; those who learn today can lead tomorrow and collaboration and teamwork build success.
At Lakewood, we also use the research-based “Seven Correlates of Effective Schools” to guide our specific achievement goals:
- Strong Instructional Leadership
- Clear and Focused Mission
- Safe and Caring Environment
- Climate of High Expectations
- Frequent Monitoring of Student Progress
- Positive Home-School Relations
- Opportunity to Learn and Student Time on Task
Each month, we focus on a different character trait throughout school to provide positive guidelines for behavior. Monthly assemblies and recognition encourage students to use these important life skills.
-INTEGRITY: To act according to a sense of what's right and wrong
-INITIATIVE: To do something because it needs to be done
-FLEXIBILITY: To be willing to alter plans when necessary
-PERSEVERANCE: To keep at it
-ORGANIZATION: To plan, arrange and implement in an orderly way; to keep things orderly and ready to use
-COMMON SENSE: To use good judgment
-PROBLEM-SOLVING: To create solutions in difficult situations and everyday problems
-RESPONSIBILITY: To respond when appropriate, to be accountable for your behavior
-PATIENCE: To wait calmly for someone or something
-COOPERATION: To work together toward a common goal or purpose
-CARING: To feel and show concern for others
