Lake Elementary Welcomes You


The primary focus of Lake Elementary is to meet the needs of all learners by removing barriers to learning. We are focused on creative lesson design for the diverse profiles of our learners; thinking

about their strengths, needs, interests, and values to create equitable learning for every student. We will be working to further develop Project Based Learning (PBL) units that are grade-level aligned with

a UDL lens for equity. We also integrate a robust music program with our PBLs. We work in team sessions to develop MTSS feedback cycles focused on SMART goal-setting; scientific, research-based interventions (SRBIs); progress monitoring,

performance assessments, and rubrics. Lake Elementary is a student-centered, dynamic learning community. Students are partners in their learning plans, as we co-create their experiences as a community that values and includes learners, parents, staff,

faculty, and the greater community. We create relationships that inspire learning through collaboration, excellence, and innovation in various contexts to promote growth with a whole-child approach!
