Dear Lake View Primary Parents, Guardians, and Students,
I would like to welcome parents, students, and staff back to the 2014-2015 school year at Lake View Primary School. It is exciting to see the student’s smiling faces and energetic enthusiasm to learn. We have put some collaborative efforts in place in order to continuously improve as a school family. We hope you will join us in the efforts to support and challenge your children in a safe, collaborative climate that communicates high expectations for social and academic growth.
One of the most important components of a good school is the partnership between the school and parents who work together for the best interest of children. The close partnership between home and school is one of the exceptional strengths at Lake View Primary School.
Lake View Primary School has a strong tradition of supportive, hard-working parents. Throughout the year, parents have the opportunity to develop that partnership in a wide variety of ways such as:
It is important to your child that you are involved in some way at school. It’s a way to let your child know you think his or her school is important.
As we begin a new school year, we find teachers establishing school expectations and rules using PRIDE. In the most successful classrooms, teachers have established specific routines for the children to follow. This means giving the children a specific place to find and keep materials, a set schedule for classroom instruction, etc. These routines, blended with the teacher’s consistent expectations, form a smooth running classroom where the children have the security of understanding their environment and are reinforced positively for their contributions.
At home, it is also important to provide routines. Many families build a daily “quiet time” when the television is turned off. This quiet time provides students the opportunity for completing schoolwork or for recreational reading if there is no homework. During this quiet time, a suitable place, somewhat free of other distractions, should be available. The routine of a daily quiet time provides an opportunity to develop self-discipline, stimulate imagination, and enhance reading skills.
As families establish routines for the new school year, it is helpful to keep in mind that childhood is a special time of learning, exploration and growth. Children need to be provided free time to explore their world and experience the joy of discovery.
Commitment to the best for our children on the part of parents, students, and staff is the key to our success with the children we teach. It is the hope of the staff that all parents will help us fulfill this commitment to excellence on behalf of all children at Lake View Primary School. School and home can work together to build skills and knowledge, reinforce values, and develop a strong sense of self worth. We must invest our time and energies in our nation’s most valuable resource -- our children.
Collectively Committed to Every Student, Every Day, Every Minute!
