Our annual Holiday Extravaganza will be presented Monday, December 16th at 6:30pm at Lakeview Middle School. The musical is titled Flakes. As in years past we will not be charging admission for the holiday performance, though we ask for donations to offset the cost of the production. Students are to arrive at 5:50pm. Parents can enjoy refreshments while they are waiting for the production to begin. The school is located on 28th Street.
Students should be at Lakeview Middle School by 5:50 pm for the Monday evening performance. The attire for the performance will be determined by the child’s teacher. Each class is performing a different song/skit and requests for attire will go home shortly.
A letter was sent home outlining how we would be involved with Santa’s Helper to provide local families in our community with a special holiday. This is a project we started twelve years ago and found to be very rewarding and successful. The drive will continue for the next four weeks. We will make our deliveries to the families the week before holiday break. Please help us show our students that the holiday season is a time of giving and not just receiving. If you need specific information, please call Mrs. Roth at (269) 963-5851.

This year’s first principal breakfast is on December 19th at 8:00 in the 3-6 building. I believe it’s important to have a strong relationship with the parents. I would like to hear from each one of you. What things are we doing well? What do we need to improve upon? Do you have any concerns? Please join me for pastries and coffee.

The PTO’s Santa’s Gift Shop will begin December 10th in the portable. The program makes it possible for our students to experience the joy of choosing their own special holiday gifts for family and friends. It not only provides great memories for our students but also helps them budget their money and make their own decisions.
My husband and I are happy to announce our family will be growing in May. We are expecting our second child May 10th. Reagan is very excited to become a big sister! During my leave Mrs. Hecht and Mrs. Kemp will be taking turns to fill my position. Each of their classrooms will be provided with a substitute teacher. I will always be available through email. These two experienced lead teachers will do a wonderful job while I am away.
