Dear Lakeview Families and Students,
I would like to personally welcome all students and their families to Lakeview Middle School. Our team here at LMS is excited to begin this school year with each and every one of you. As we look to begin this exciting journey together, my hope is that your student will have a positive experience while at our school. We strive do great things for our students on a daily basis here at Lakeview. This starts with a collective team centered approach focused on doing whatever it takes for our students to learn at high levels.
We are excited to welcome several new staff members to Team Lakeview this year. In the Science Department, Mrs. Kate Hostetler (Science 8) and Mr. Jordan Gardner (Science 7) will be joining us. In the Social Studies Department we have Mr. Kane Stellar (7th grade SS) and Mr. Michael Gormaly (7th grade SS). Mr. Gormaly will be moving from teaching ELA to SS this school year. We have several new hires in our Math Department. Mr. Hans Griepentrog (Geometry), Ms. Tara Clark, and Mr. Dominick Moseley will join our wonderful math team. Other hires include Mrs. Sandy McClellan (ELA 7), Mr. Bryan Brumbaugh (PE/Health 7), Mrs. Maria Burns (DLI), and Ms. Carmen Trier (Art). Steve Ferber will be joining our Special Education team this year too! Please join us in welcoming these amazing educators to our already strong team of teachers here at Lakeview!
Lakeview has three essential expectations —Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be Safe. The following four items fall under one or more of these expectations: attendance, cell phone, dress policy, and ID badges. Attached are the procedures for each of these items. Please review these with your student so all are aware of the expectations before the school year begins. We also have new school wide procedures on homework, late work, missing work, and a new grading percentage configuration. Our hope is that these new school wide procedures will help create consistency and continuity amongst our staff which in turn will help our students be more successful.
We will be hosting a question and answer session with the Lakeview Middle School Administrative team on Thursday, August 4th from 6:00 p.m.-6:30 p.m. in the Lakeview Auditorium. Information about this event and our open houses can be found on our school website. As of right now, we will also host a Back to School Night on Tuesday, August 16th from 6:00 p.m-7:00 p.m. Please consider attending this event as it will give you an opportunity to meet your student’s classroom teachers for this school year.
We look forward to building and strengthening relationships with both students and parents. We invite students and parents to contact us if you have a question or concern. Open communication is crucial to the success of our students and school. We are TEAM LAKEVIEW!
