Greetings from the PTA
Hello Lakeview Families!
The Lakeview Elementary School PTA knows that strong partnerships among our families, school leaders and community members is important to the success of our students and school. That's why we are participating in the National PTA School of Excellence program, which grows partnerships between the PTA and Lakeview community to enrich the educational experience and overall well-being of all students.
Please take a couple minutes to complete a survey to reflect on your experience at this school before Friday, November 2nd. Thank you in advance if you have already done so! We would like to achieve 100% participation!
Our next step is to select individuals to serve on our Excellence Team which will focus on the 6 Standards (see below).
If you would like to serve on our Excellence Team, please review the National PTA School of Excellence website and submit an email expressing your interest to firstname.lastname@example.org by November 9th. All applicants should plan to join us for more information on Monday, November 12th at 11:30 a.m. in the Lakeview Library. Results from the survey will be evaluated and a shared objective will be selected.
Thank you for your continued support and collaboration as we work toward becoming a National PTA School of Excellence!
Ann DeCapite Lakeview PTA President

Upcoming PTA Program
The PTA will host a Holiday Gift Shop for students the week of December 10th - 14th during school hours and the evening of December 11th from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. This unique seasonal Gift Shop, under the supervision of parent volunteers, is an unforgettable event for the kids to enjoy as your child will have the chance to hand pick chosen gifts as a surprise for friends and/or family members. Your child may choose from approximately 250 different gift items ranging in price from $0.35 to $15.00. More information will be sent home with your child closer to the holidays!
Volunteers will be needed to help supervise the Gift Shop. Let us know you are interested in helping by completing our volunteer interest form here. Shifts will be published soon on a SignUp Genius link.
