I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the 2017-2018 school  year!  All of us here at South Lakewood are excited to share all of the many new opportunities we offer for our students and community.

This past June, I had the honor to represent South Lakewood Elementary at a meeting of the Colorado State School Board.  At this meeting, South Lakewood Elementary was recognized by the Colorado Department of Education as being a High Achieving School.  We were presented a certificate and a banner to celebrate all of the many exceptional achievements that our school and community have accomplished. Along with this special acknowledgment, we have begun to fulfill our dream of building a brand new playground for our school and community.  The blacktop has been resurfaced, new basketball courts added along with other new pieces of equipment for outdoor activities.  We have also begun the work to replace and update our playground area.  This new playground will be completed by November of 2017.   This has been a huge undertaking by our PTA and community members. Thank you to all that have stepped up to make this happen for our school.

South Lakewood Elementary is a school that meets students where they are academically.  We have programs and supports that span the needs of our diverse population from extra support to expanding and enriching our gifted learners. In 2016, South Lakewood Elementary was awarded the Jan Harp Domene Diversity and Inclusion award.  This honor was received from the National PTA and is given to only one elementary school in the Nation per year. In 2017, PTA received the Wayne Carle Award for diversity and inclusion.  We are so very proud of our staff and community for working with us to achieve this honor for our students!

Please take time to upload and read, on Jeffco’s web site, a copy of the Jefferson County Conduct of Code. I would also ask that you review the expectations and guidelines for South Lakewood, that you will find in the folder that your student will bring home every Friday of the school year. This will help your student have a smooth transition into this new school year. Again, welcome and please join us in celebrating the wonderful school and community that is South Lakewood.
