Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year!  This is my ninth year to have the honor of working with our staff and community at South Lakewood.  It has been exciting and fulfilling to be part the exciting changes that we have brought to our students.

As we begin this year, I know it will be a year of progress and celebrations for our student body.  Grades 3-4-5-6 will be going to one-on-one with technology.  They will research and present their learning with the use of laptops in their classroom. This also opens up expanded use of technology for grades K-1-2 by giving them more opportunities to utilize one of our two computer labs. Another change that we will be working on this year is the transition of our sixth graders to Creighton Middle School in the Fall of 2019. We will be hosting several parent informational meetings in order to make this transition as easy as possible.

            We will be beginning the next phase of our playground plan with the addition of an outdoor classroom that will be located on the east side of the blacktop. Work will start towards the end of August, 2018. The playground and the new outdoor classroom have been made possible by our incredible PTA and supportive community.  Thank you for all you do!!!

            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.  Starting in the 2018-19 school year we will be instituting what we call WIN time.  This WIN time, (What I Need), will be on a daily basis and provide intervention instruction, as well as enrichment opportunities for all students. We are so very proud of our staff and community for working with us to achieve these honors and opportunities 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.
