Student, Parent and Community Involvement
Research shows that children have a much greater chance to succeed when parents, family members, and community are involved in their education. Our volunteer pool spans a spectrum: retired people and grandparents; friends and relatives of Lakeview staff members; former Lakeview students who are now in middle school; Rotarians; and committed parents. Volunteers assist in our building in a variety of ways: one-to-one tutoring sessions, assistance at classroom learning centers, attendance at field trips, supervising recess, overseeing fund-raisers, reading to small groups, and assisting with projects. Parents are seen around our building for concerts and performances, conferences, barbecues, assemblies, book fairs, informational meetings and Open House. Parents and community members serve on our Site Council, which is the decision-making team of our school process. Parents are asked through this team to respond to surveys and give input to decisions which affect our school.
- Families are invited to math and literacy nights where parents, teachers and students interact through games, stories and conversation.
- Community members assist our families and students through providing tutors for individual students.
- During the school day our counselor offers individual and group counseling to children.
- A supplemental/enrichment math, reading and science program for our students is provided by Lakeview staff members after school at the school and the HOPE Center.
- Community members come to the school and take part in our reading activities. Community members, teachers and staff share their favorite books with our children.
