Welcome Back from the President
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year; a very unique and interesting year!
At Lakeview Elementary we are more than the buildings on our campus. Lakeview Elementary is our community of students, teachers, and staff, and our children’s time here will set the foundation of their future. For now, we are the pioneers of distance learning. Lakeview Elementary is digital, and much of what “school” is has changed. And change is scary. We are all scared for what the future looks like for our children, for our families, and for our community, as well as what this time of distance learning will look like.
But with change comes opportunity. We have the opportunity to help our children learn adaptability and perseverance. We have the opportunity to seek out innovative teaching solutions and programs. As a PTA, we have the opportunity to fund those programs that enhance education and keep our children connected with our Lakeview community. And your PTA looks forward to this unique challenge. We have already begun many initiatives for our students and staff.
Every Lakeview student will start the year with Lakeview Elementary Spirit Gear provided, so we can bring our community into the home learning environment. We encourage parents to have their students wear their spirit wear during school hours as homes have become the classroom. Every Lakeview student will have the opportunity to attend a virtual afterschool activity, so they can remain connected to their friends in an activity of their choice. Each Lakeview student will be able to join their friends when we hold a week-long, virtual, Move-a-Thon, so we can continue to make this not-so-normal year, as normal as possible.
Your PTA will continue working hard to make this school year a resounding success, and we will pursue every opportunity to make this so. Please join us as we lean in to this school year and continue to watch our students be successful at this unique time in their lives. We look forward to working with Dr. Chang and the dedicated teachers and staff at Lakeview, who have spent the summer to working on the programs that will make your student excel during distance learning.
Thank you for your continued support of the Lakeview PTA.
Your 2020-2021 PTA President,
