Message from Mrs. Sandra Toledo, incoming Lakewood ES PTA President:

Hello Lakewood Families!  As the school year is coming to an end, I just wanted to introduce myself, Sandra Toledo, as the new PTA president for the 2019/2020 school year. I am proud to take on this role and am open to any ideas you may have to make our children’s elementary school experiences great! The rest of the nominated board as well as some additional opportunities for your involvement can be found here:  http://www.lakewoodpta.com/ . Please let us know if you are interested in filling one of these roles or would like some additional information.  As we begin planning for next year, we are looking for your input towards what type of after school enrichment classes your children may be interested in. Please take this short survey by 6/22/19 so we can determine what type of programming we should bring to Lakewood next year.  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/KTMD2FZ   Finally, I just want to thank our outgoing board and all the other amazing parents who stepped up to make 2018/2019 great.  Once again, please reach out to me with any questions, concerns or ideas!   Have a wonderful summer!  Sandra Toledo,  Sandra.b.steiner@gmail.comquestion

This is your last Sunday message for the school year 2018-19! I am wishing all of you a happy, safe and fun summer! We hope to see you Thursday, August 29, 2019, for the Open House for the new school year 2019-20!
