Important Survey for Title 1 Parents

Lakewood City Schools participates in the Title I Schoolwide program. The guidelines of this program currently fall under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). The goal of our schoolwide program is to support the instruction for all students, with a primary focus on the needs of children who are not successful in meeting state standards in Reading and Math. Each spring we ask parents to comment on their experiences with our program. Each year, we review these suggestions and those of our staff as we evaluate the program and plan for the next school year. Please complete the survey by Monday, May 29.

Girls on the Run 2017


The girls did AWESOME!!!! :-) When the girls were asked to shout out one word they felt after we had finished, PROUD and HAPPY were the two I heard loudest. I can’t wait for that feeling to continue into next week and next weekend at our race on the 20th. 


THANK YOU so much to the parents that joined us! We loved having the extra hands, and more importantly the extra support! 


Shout out to our finish line rock stars, Sophia Z. and Emily S.! They kept their spirits high even though they couldn’t run with us and helped us finish strong! 


Shout out to Mrs. Doren for helping us out- your chalk messages definitely helped us keep going! I think you’re right- the kittens were definitely cheering us on!
