Our Parents

Lakeview Parents

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.

Welcoming Community

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.

Lakeview Academy Parents Association (LPA)

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. To learn more about volunteer opportunities, contact the LPA or complete a volunteer form.

Intercultural Committee Village (IC Village)

Lakeview Academy values inclusion. With families and faculty from over thirty countries, all at Lakeview are welcome to join the Intercultural Committee Village (IC Village for short). Consistent with the mission statement, the committee strives to broaden our worldview and become more involved in our larger community. Each year, Lakeview showcases the culture and talents of our diverse student and parent groups with an international assembly. Watch on the school calendar for quarterly meetings or contact Ana Patino-Osorno for more information.

LA Booster Club

The Booster Club supports Lakeview students in every aspect of their athletic endeavors. Whether it is grilling hamburgers for a tailgate party before a football game, running the concession stands, or helping in the C&B Snack Bar, the Booster Club will be there to cheer on Lakeview's teams.
