Where did the time go? It is hard to believe we only a few weeks left in this school year. It’s been a year of challenges, changes, and success stories. This year was the year of media coverage in many places... television, newspaper articles, parent and community forums, Facebook and Twitter. We accomplished some things we set out to do, but, there is still work to be done. We are proud of the following accomplishments:
1) Students participating in the county-wide Battle of the Books Contest
2) Five students to score a perfect score on math common assessment cycle three in fourth grade
3) Decrease in suspensions and office referrals
4) An increase in after school tutoring in grades kindergarten through fifth
5) Fun filled water Field Day
Our 3rd-5th grade students have officially completed FSA testing for this year. Now, we are looking forward to the results from the state department. We believe our students did put forth great effort and our teachers prepared the students to be great test takers enabling them to perform their best on the tests.
As we come to a close this year we are asking for your assistance with ensuring your child is following school-wide expectations and rules. Some of our students are thinking it’s time to shut down, but school is not over. We ask for your help in reminding your child each day about staying focused and on task.
We continue to welcome you to stop by Lakewood to volunteer or stop in to see the great things happening at school. See you soon!
