Welcome to Lakeview Elementary School

Kellie Joy, Principal

Welcome to Lakeview Elementary School, the home of the Seagulls! We serve close to 400 students, Kindergarten through fifth grade, from five different neighborhood areas. Our current building has had a presence in the historical Capitol Beach area since 1922, and has gone through 3 major additions since then. The latest was completed in 2012. Lakeview families represent a wide range of cultural and economic backgrounds, which is one of the reasons it’s such a special place.

As our Lakeview Mission Statement below reads, we continue to strive for the betterment of all students: Team Lakeview believes that education is a foundation of life’s successes. Through purposeful instruction, guidance, and encouragement our students will excel and continuously grow. We are committed to meeting the academic, behavioral, social and emotional needs of all students, and working closely with families to ensure student growth and success.

At Lakeview, we provide a caring, safe and productive learning environment for all students. In order to provide a safe learning environment that promotes student engagement, students must learn and understand the expectations that it is Never OK to be hurtful, and Never OK to be disruptive. Our three school-wide goals for student behavior that are taught and modeled throughout our building are:

  • Be safe
  • Be respectful
  • Be responsible

Lakeview will continue to have and implement common expectations for ALL students throughout the learning environment.

There are many ways for families and community members to become involved at Lakeview. Two of the best are through the PTO/SNAC (Parent Teacher Organization/School Neighborhood Action Committee) and CLC (Community Learning Center). Our PTO/SNAC works to support our students’ education through volunteerism and financial support. PTO/SNAC meetings and events are held throughout the year. Our Community Learning Center provides programs for before and after school, as well as family events throughout the year. The goals of our Community Learning Center are to increase student achievement, to support families, and to build stronger neighborhoods. The Willard Community Center is the lead agency for CLC at Lakeview. Please contact our site supervisor, Gina Benne at gbenne@lps.org for more CLC information. If you ever have any questions, concerns, or feedback to share, please contact our office. We can be reached at 402-436-1149.
