What We Fund
Investments that help our children soar!
At Lakeview, we don't ask our families to do cumbersome door-to-door fundraising activities. We simply ask our parents to donate what they can to the PTO. Working with the teachers, staff and parents, the PTO defines its funding priorities for the school year.
In order to support the school's curriculum needs, there are computer based software and licensed applications (for example Reflex Math, ST Math, Newsela, BrainPOP). Technology continues to be one our largest needs, and we hope you join us in supporting this effort.
Additionally, Lakeview's PTO funds the Arts program, the music and dance programs, field trips, new books for the library, after school enrichment programs, and several other activities and events throughout the year.
A few projects that are in the works have been put off till next year because we need to maintain reserves to cover minimum annual commitments. This helps us protect key programs in the event there are issues with fundraising in Fall 2018 - for example a rained out Fall Festival.
The 2017-18 budget & Actuals will be posted soon!
At Lakeview, we are privileged to have tremendous parent involvement. By working with the teachers and staff, we learn about what is critical to our classrooms, while listening to and surveying our parents, we understand what is important to families. Combining this information, we can make informed decisions that benefit our students.
