At Lakeview Academy, parents play an important part in the life of our School and are automatically members of the Lakeview Parents Association, (LPA). The LPA strives to strengthen the partnership of families and school through volunteer involvement in any of a number of different roles: serving in a leadership role in the LPA, acting as a homeroom parent or chaperone on field trips, volunteering for the school’s annual auction or fall festival, being a member in Lakeview’s Intercultural Committee Village (IC Village), or in many other ways. Parents are also active in governance as members of the School’s Board of Trustees. All parents are involved as “partners” in their child’s education through Lakeview’s vibrant Parent-School Partnership.
Just like the School, the Lakeview parent community is welcoming, inviting and diverse. Lakeview parents have opportunities to connect at the grade levels as well as across grades and divisions. Our annual Grade Parent Gatherings in the early fall are highly anticipated events that give parents an opportunity to hear the direction of the school from the Head of School in a casual setting. Lakeview has a “family” atmosphere and many of our students and their parents will be part of that family for at least fourteen years. The gatherings are a great way to get to know other parents in your child’s grade who will become “like family” to you. In addition, the Lakeview Parent Association hosts a school-wide Parent Welcome Back Coffee, Welcome Back Picnic, Grandparents Day reception, Fall Festival, teacher appreciation week, and other events.

With funds donated by so many of you who love this school, the LPA has been able to fund enhancements throughout the school. The LPA has provided funding for: the block out curtains in the Student Center, playground equipment, transportation for Upper School students to the out-of-state Dodge Poetry Festival, guest speakers such as nationally syndicated columnist on parenting, John Rosemond, and author of “Ignorance is No Defense of the Law,” J. Tom Morgan, plus LCD monitors, transmitters and receiver for the digital, automated messaging system in the Upper School hallway.
