"Springfield Public School District defines Family and Community Engagement as school, family & community partnerships built on trust and meaningful communication that creates strong academic support systems for all students."

Laketown needs your voice, energy and time! The F.A.C.E. team is a committee of parents, staff, and community partners that meets monthly to discuss and form action plans on topics that needs our focus. We come together to learn and set goals for the year to support student achievement. "Let's breakdown the barrier and start working together"!

Our mission as a Family & Community Engagement (F.A.C.E.) team at Laketown Elementary School is to promote and encourage communication between parents, teachers, administration and the community.
