Welcome!

We are so glad you're here.

At Lakewood Elementary, students who demonstrate a need for advanced academics are served in a variety of ways. All students in Kindergarten through 2nd grade participate in the Investigations in STEM program, practicing critical and creative thinking skills tied to the core curriculum. In addition, K-2 students who are performing above grade level in reading or math receive small group instruction with Ms. Miles. Through data collection and teacher observation, third through fifth graders who demonstrate a need for extension are served by their classroom teacher through differentiation and participate in small, pull-out reading and math groups with Ms. Exum. We also recognize potential in Kindergarten through fifth grade students and provide enrichment opportunities throughout the year.

First Grade Investigations in STEM

This quarter students are learning all about simple machines, the concept of gravity among other forces in order to complete their STEM challenge coming up later in October. In the pictures to the right students are engaged in our first week of Simple Machine Stations. They explored with catapults to understand levers, created paper airplanes to see a wedge in action, and finally built inclined planes for cars (wheel and axel) to zoom down. Check out the photos to the right to see some students in action!

Metaphorically Thinking...About Me

To start off the year, students spend time getting to know each other through games and "About Me" presentations. Instead of hearing the same old thing about every student, students stretched their thinking to create metaphors about who they are, their summer, and their brain. Check out their creative connections below.
