Dear Parents, Students, and Faculty,
Welcome back to another school year at Lakeview Elementary. I hope you and your families had a great summer. I am excited to see the children and hear about their summer activities. We are going to have a great year of
exciting learning and hard work. I believe in our students, teachers and staff. I know that working together we can reach our goals. We look forward to working with you and your children.
Please remember to put some money in your child's lunch account. You can add money to the lunch account by visiting www.http.wsd.net
under Child Nutrition or you can send money with your child as needed. Please keep your child's lunch count current at all times. We have free and reduced lunch applications located in the foyer if you would like to apply.
Here are a few things that will help us to have a great year:
* Utah State Law requires regular school attendance. To ensure that concepts and skills are consistently learned, regular school attendance is a must and we recommend that children not be allowed to stay home unless they are ill. Please call the school and let us know if your child will be absent. Also, punctuality is critical in order for children to feel a strong sense of belonging and to receive the directions and review that are given at the start of the day.
* Talk with your child about their day and what they are learning. Read with them daily and record their minutes in their planners or get on line and add their minutes on the Ken Garff reading program. Establish a routine time and place to get their homework finished daily. Help them become responsible students by helping them develop a routing of putting completed homework in their folder to bring back to school and turn in.
* As a faculty and staff we will provide a safe learning environment that fosters active participation in learning which is crucial to each child's education. It is expected that every child will behave in a manner that allows children the opportunity to learn to their maximum potential. This requires responsible behavior in class, on the playground, and walking to and from school. Please review Weber School District and Lakeview Policies and Procedures with your child.
I have an open door policy at Lakeview and encourage parents to communicate often with the teachers and staff if questions or needs arise. I want to provide a safe school environment - please always sign in and get a visitor pass at the front office using the front doors. A parent's sustained interest in their child's academic and social experiences at school can be great motivation for learning. Let your child see and feel that we are working together in every way to make this a terrific school year.
I am looking forward to a great year with you and your children.
