Dear Lakeview Families,

Our children are our future!  Is your child ready to pursue his or her hopes and dreams?  Here at Lakeview Hope Academy, we are helping students set and achieve goals for themselves. Studies show that having a well-defined goal and tracking one’s progress toward that goal makes a big difference!

Ask your child what they are learning in reading and math, and ask them what they are doing to improve. Our children are still young, so it may feel too early to talk about what they want to “do when they grow up.”  That’s ok!  Help your child explore interests, learn about the importance of family, work, and community, and explore all the options available to kids today. 

That being said, also encourage your child to play!  As days grow darker and the weather gets gloomy, kids tend to stay inside, exercise less, and spend more time on screens.  Help us encourage an active lifestyle in our children – one in which students learn to play with friends, take turns, share, and use their imaginations.  Some of my favorite rainy days as a child were spent in a blanket-and-pillow fort that my brother and I made.

So set sights toward growth, but also leave room for play. Mister Rogers once said, “Play is the work of childhood.”  Thank you for partnering with us to raise responsible, happy kids.
