The Junior Chief is chosen from among all District 5th graders through an essay contest on the Fire Prevention Week topic of the year, which for 2019 was "Not Every Hero Wears a Cape. Plan and Practice Your Escape!" Caden's essay was chosen as the best for Lakewood. As is tradition, on October 17 the new Junior Fire Chief was given a special ride to school in a fire engine truck.

Halloween Parade


October 31, 2:00

We will be celebrating Halloween with our annual costume parade. We will parade around the outside of the school, stepping off at 2:00 from the Clifton Ave. front steps.  Parents are invited to watch the parade, then the children will return to classrooms for a short party.

We welcome you to watch the parade, but unfortunately cannot host everyone in the classrooms.

Children who are participating will bring school-appropriate costumes in a bag clearly labeled with his/her name. Students also need to leave masks and weapon-like accessories at home as well as anything that is so integral to the costume that they would be heartbroken if lost or left at school.



We have hit the next incentive level and FRIDAY, October 18 will be PJ DAY!   Students can wear PJ’s to school and put a ticket in the spirit wear can for a possible prize!
