Welcome to Lakeview Middle School and the 2013-14 school year.
I would like to bring you up to speed on some of the exciting things that have been happening recently. We have had a several personnel changes. We are saying good bye to: Ashley Kohl-Hellwig (paraprofessional), Molly Thompson(Language Arts), Fernando Castillo (EL/Math), Michael McClain (Language Arts) who will not return; and Kathy McCoy (Language Arts/Literature)has retired;
New staff members include: Sarah Wolfe who will be teaching Language Arts full-time, Megan Sumner who will be teaching full-time Language Arts, Katie Lowry who will be teaching full-time Language Arts, Anthony DeBrota who will be teaching full-time EL, Kallie Kirkendall who will be teaching half-time Art, Kyle McNulty who will be teaching half-time Science and Language Arts, Ben Truman who will be teaching half-time health/PE, Carol Weld who will be teaching French part-time, and Jing Chen who will be teaching Mandarin Chinese part-time. It is with mixed emotion that we say farewell to those who have opened a different chapter of their life. We are excited to have the new staff/instructors in place, but we always feel that we are losing a little piece of our family when someone moves on. We wish all of the teachers and staff who have moved on the best of luck in their new positions. They will be missed!
Our custodial crew has done a magnificent job getting the school deep cleaned. We had several painting projects that have been completed and perhaps none more welcomed than the new paint in Science hallway. Mrs. Kinney and Mr. Gunter have been hard at work scheduling new students, and Mr. Deeds and Officer Light are in the middle of rolling out a new school safety initiative.
A new school year presents opportunities for various beginnings-new classes, new faces, sometimes new courses and often new materials. This year as in the past, we must concentrate on the processes that spur continuing advancement: evaluating what we have, determining what we can do to improve, and identifying what we need to make those improvements.
Let us make 2013-14 our best school year yet!
Dr. Jon Lippe
