Dear Lakeview Families,

In challenging times, our children look to the adults around them for guidance. They follow our lead! If we are stressed, they will be stressed. If we stay calm, they are more likely to stay calm. If we approach problems with a positive attitude, our kids will learn to do the same.

Here at Lakeview, our staff members are setting an example for kids every day. We do this with our smiles, our encouragement, with kindness, and with intentional positivity.  We have joined the Clover Park School District’s Give Six campaign to share positivity and affirmation with students every day. Will you join us in this effort?

Our kids deserve to be heard and supported! Even when we face challenges, it’s actually very healthy to talk about what bothers us, what we’re afraid of, and how to deal with it. As we have those conversations with our children, they learn, “Life may be tough sometimes, but I know my (mom/dad/guardian/teacher) loves me. I will get through this.”

How are you intentionally sharing positivity with your children? When challenges happen, do you circle back to resolve them? Many parents choose mealtime or bedtime as the time to talk, listen, and encourage. I know my own daughter used to always bring up what was bugging her at bedtime! Maybe your child is similar. Listen, talk, encourage, and focus on the positive, no matter what challenges life brings.

As we do so, our children will learn to be resilient.  They will learn to find the “silver lining” on the clouds of life.  This will help them reach their goals, no matter the obstacles they face.

Thank you for partnering with us to lead our children with positivity.

Proud to be your principal,

Bob Richards
