Lakeview School is always open to having volunteers in the school, please contact the main office or your child's teacher for more information.
Balanced School Day
The balanced school day schedule is an initiative to support learning in the classroom, promotes healthy eating and encourages daily physical activity. The schedule relies on a day that is nutritionally balanced for students, allowing them to eat/snack more appropriately for the needs of their young bodies, increase their concentration and energy levels and offer longer periods of uninterrupted learning/teaching blocks and physical activity.
Your child will have two nutrition breaks each day - divided into snack time and playtime. Students will not need more food, they do need the same amount packed differently into Nutrition Break #1 and Nutrition Break #2. These aren't times to eat items like chips, candy or chocolate. It is time to eat foods that are healthy and satisfying.
Parents want the best education for their children and are their children's first and life long teachers. Lakeview School values the partnership between home and school and recognizes that parental involvement is the key to success in school. Parents can help support Lakeview School by encouraging students to fulfil their responsibilities towards the school, other students and themselves. Reinforcing homework at home is an important factor of success at school for your child. Here are some helpful tips that will help your child develop good study habits.
- Set a consistent time when homework will be done each night.
- Provide a quiet place away from distractions.
- Have your children practice math, reading and writing skills daily.
- Talk to your child about what they are learning in school.
- Read together with younger children.
- Let your children help you in reading and writing, recipes, newspapers, letters,shopping lists.
- Encourage your children to ask the teacher for help if they find the work difficult or confusing.
- Keep in touch with the teachers and call when you have a question or concern.
- Check that homework is completed.
- Praise and encourage children.
Lakeview School recognizes, honours and follows the traditional cultural teachings of the Anishinaabe people. Many Anishinaabe people use the seven basic principles as their guide on how they live.
The teachings known as the "Seven Grandfathers" are as follows:
To cherish knowledge is to know wisdom.Wisdom is given by the Creator to be used for the good of the people.
Love is unconditional. When people are weak they need love the most.
Have respect for all that is.All of creation should be treated with respect. You must give respect if you wish to be respected.
Face the foe with integrity.To do what's right even when the consequences are unpleasant.
Always be honest in word and action. Be honest first with yourself, and you will more easily be able to be honest with others.
You are equal to others, but you are not better.
Speak the truth. Do not deceive yourself or others.
