Middle School News & Information

From Darlene Snyder, Middle School Director

No School on Wednesday, March 10th - Parent-Teacher Conference Day
 
We recently asked our teachers what their students were learning and doing. Here are a few of their responses.
 
The Middle School Student Council helped spread a little love to their classmates. They attached personal messages to lollipops and distributed them at lunch before the Winter Break.
 
After a week of auditions and call-backs, the cast of Seussical Jr has been selected. Look for this fantastic middle school play in May.
 
6th Grade
In English class, students are learning about the daily struggles and fears of Anne Frank, a precocious 13-year-old who hid with her family and others for 761 days to avoid being captured by the Nazis. Students will be shocked and touched as they read her very own words in Anne Frank: Diary of a Young Girl.

Students are also learning there are many FUN ways to study. In science class are learning about minerals and mineral Identification for a recent test by doing a Blooket review. Using the game, Blooket, students earn points for feeding their animals. In order to earn food, they have to answer questions correctly. The first person to earn $1,000,000 wins! (It takes only about 20 minutes to earn it.) It has sabotages built in as well where students can cause snowstorms (snow fills the screens of others so they can’t see), dance party (the screen goes blank and plays dance music), and swaps (where you swap points with another). Students LOVE this game! Photos from the review session are in the gallery below.
 
 
7th Grade
In English, students are learning about Homer Hickam, Jr., a high school student from the coal mining town of Coalwood, West Virginia, who has bigger dreams than following in his father’s footsteps of coal mining. He works against all odds to build rockets and one day work for NASA. Students are reading his true story in the novel October Sky
 
In Spanish students are working together to translate movie titles from Spanish to English. See a picture in the gallery below.

From the School Counselor

Hello. This is Stephanie Hager, your Lakeview Academy school counselor, and Feb. 1-5th, was National School Counseling Week. Last week I talked about perseverance and I’ve always found inspiration to keep moving forward by doing something for someone else. Sometimes you just need to get out of your own head. 

In the Black Panther movie, King T’Challa says “We must find a way to look after one another as if we were one single tribe.” Compassion is when we show care for someone else. When you’re feeling your worst, helping someone can make you feel better. 
 
How can you help? How can you show compassion to a friend, a relative, a classmate, a co-worker, or a neighbor? Can you be a listening ear for a friend who is suffering? Can you reach out to an elderly relative to let them know you’re thinking about them? Can you help a classmate or coworker who is struggling with their work? I’d love to hear your ideas. 


Recently, lower and middle school students at Lakeview Academy wrote and sent letters to soldiers and veterans. The America's Adopt a Soldier program sent the school a certificate of appreciation which you can read here.

The Lakeview Academy family suffered a loss in late January of a recent graduate.  Here are some resources if you or your child are grieving. Please reach out to me if I can help in anyway.

Thanks,
Stephanie
 

From the School Nurse

In early December, the CDC issued new guidelines (click here to read) regarding the length of time to quarantine. Based upon these new recommendations, Lakeview Academy has updated their guidelines as to whether to come to school or not. You can download our guidelines by clicking HERE.

REMINDER: ALL Students (remote or on campus) MUST Submit a Health Attestation Daily

Why do I have to submit daily?
COVID-19 continues to spread rapidly in our community. In order for us to determine if it is safe to continue or return to in-person learning, we need to know how the virus is impacting the Lakeview community directly. ALL Students (remote or on-campus) must submit a health attestation daily. When attestations are not completed, staff time and resources are required to follow up with families that have not completed the form which delays our ability to make data-driven decisions.
 
How do I submit daily?
Download the mobile app to submit from your cell phone or other mobile device. Once registered, you can also submit online using the link below.
