Lakeview Elementary

Amber Kowatch, Lakeview Elementary PrincipalWelcome to Lakeview Elementary!  Lakeview is a kindergarten through second grade elementary school located at 502 W. Haight Street just four blocks from beautiful Lake Michigan in Ludington.  We are a small family-oriented school where we partner with families to provide a well rounded education for our students.  

The staff and students at Lakeview Elementary take great pride in academics and extracurricular activities and are committed to preparing each of our students in all content areas for the global community, equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary for success. We strive daily to create a rigorous academic environment while ensuring systems are in place to meet each child’s academic, social and emotional needs.  We offer many differentiated opportunities for students which you may view in detail in our Points of Pride.  We strive to help each student SOAR at Lakeview through educational routines that promote Safety, Outstanding respect, And Responsibility.

Lakeview is on the cutting edge of technology and we are proud to offer 1:1 iPad devices to enhance the curriculum.  Each student uses technology to receive instruction, individual practice as well as create and access information.  We are excited to offer a roving Chromebook Lab to students in classrooms this school year.

We have a very active Parent Teacher Committee that provides financial and volunteer support for all student and staff programs.  Lakeview is a great school that provides an environment for students to excel both socially and academically.

Feel free to visit us to see all of the wonderful things happening at Lakeview Elementary!

We Wrote a Book!

1st grade students in Mrs. Hamilton's writing club have officiallywritten, illustrated and published their own book!  After many months of writing, re-writes and drawing their illustrations, students were able to celebrate their hard work.  A special event was planned where they read their book to an audience of family members and had cake too.  There was even a special visitor, the Oriole Bird!  Thank you Mrs. Hamilton and young authors!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Canadian Lynx was in the Library!

In November, our students collected loose change to help support the habitat of the endangered Canadian Lynx.  Jamie Flewelling and Amy Wicklund, our friends at Legends Taxidermy loaned us a fantastic Lynx mount so that our students could learn more about the animal up close.  This large looking animal weighed only 18 lbs alive - he has a lot of very thick fur which makes him appear heavy.  His paws do not have pads underneath, just more fur.  He is a a beautiful animal.  Our Lakeview students raised $465.17 to improve their habitat.  Thank you Legends for bringing this nature experience to Lakeview.

Stone Soup

Students from Mrs. Sniegowski's, Ms. Jarvie's and Ms. O'Connor's classes joined together for a Stone Soup celebration!  Students brought in vegetables to clean, cut and add to their soup.  They even made their own butter for their bread!  Once it was all cooked, they enjoyed a feast together!

Breakfast Week

Did you know that the week of March 5th-9th was National Breakfast Week?  Lakeview's Ms. Dawn made sure to have a special week planned for our Lakeview Little O breakfast eaters!  Each day our students had table cloths, special napkins and extra breakfast choices.  Ms. Dawn also arranged to have special visitors stop in and eat with our students each morning!  A special thank you to Donna Garrow, Madison Neal from House of Flavors, Sheriff Cole and several of our areas Sheriff's and our very own Superintendent, Mr. Kennedy!  We are so very lucky to have Ms. Dawn at Lakeview!

Reading Month is always fun when Clifford stops by!
