PTC On the Brew - Friday, December 4
On Friday, December 4th, tune in to the Friday Brew . . . the PTC will be featured! You will be updated on upcoming events and will hear from a PTC volunteer about why volunteering is so rewarding and how you can get involved.
Lakeview Pantry Stock the Shelves, December 16-17
Please join Yad b’Yad on Dec, 16 and 17 to fill the Lakeview Pantry shelves this holiday season. Our hope is to collect over 500 items. The most needed items are canned fruit, canned vegetables, oatmeal, peanut butter and canned tuna. Volunteers will be on campus during drop off to collect your non-perishable items.
This year, with the Covid-19 pandemic, the demand for The Lakeview Pantry's (LVP) services was up over 400% and is still trending double to last year as the year closes. They open their doors to every person who asks, regardless of where they live, since so many other organizations have not been able to keep their doors open

BZ Teachers are unBElievable!

Our talented, caring teachers are putting in enormous effort to give our children an exceptional school experience during some very challenging conditions. We know that all parents are extremely grateful to them. On behalf of all of us, our Teacher Appreciation Committee brought a Coffee Cart to school to treat all teachers and staff to specialty coffee drinks and the committee will send teachers home with treats to get them through the long days of conferences later this month. In December, teachers and staff will receive gift cards for Hanukkah from all students and families. Thank you, Teacher Appreciation Committee, for helping us show the teachers how much they mean to us. 

Thanks for Helping Drop-Off Run Smoothly!

Thanks to all parents for wearing masks during drop-off and following new procedures to keep everyone safe. Remember, if you have a student in SK through 7th Grade, you will have a chance to help with Parking Lot Duty this year. When it’s your turn, please: 
  • Arrive on time, ready to begin at 7:40 a.m. Check in at the Security Desk at the main school entrance. 
  • Feel free to park in the parking lot and send your EC and LS children into the building at 7:45 a.m. 
  • Distribute sanitizer at one of the three entrances and help students maintain 6ft of distance between one another. You’ll be done by 8:15 a.m.!
