Grandparents Day Breakfast

Sep 15, 2017 We appreciate so many of our students' grandparents coming to our annual Grandparent Day Breakfast at Laketown last Friday, September 8th.  Mr. Rhinehouse, our Parent Educator,  planned a delicious breakfast and some fun activities for all.  


Apr 26, 2017 We would like to congratulate 7 of our Laketown students on being winners in this year's CWLP Water Conservation Poster Contest: Jacey, Aliyah, Jaylie, Cindy, Kamryn, Zyeire and Isaiah. Our students created their own individual posters in support of water conservation, and 7 of our students' posters were chosen as the winners.  CWLP will sponsor a pizza party at our school for these 7 students.

Laketown's Girls on the Run

Apr 24, 2017 If you watched this morning's Channel 20 News, you probably saw some very familiar faces!  Miss Bolt, our School Social Worker, and two of our 5th grade girls were invited to be guest stars, along with the 'Girls on the Run' marketing  manager.  They talked about the awesome afterschool 'Girls on the Run' program that Laketown is a part of, along with many other schools.

Science Night

Apr 7, 2017 We would like to thank all of our families for coming out to Science Night. The evening was full of fun learning activies for all of our parents and students to enjoy. The activities consisted of experimenting with exploration of gravity, fingerprints, and fossils, states of matter, and a tall tower construct. There was a lot of competitiveness in the tower build from the parents, almost more than our students. READ MORE
