Lakeview Elementary

Amber Kowatch, Lakeview Elementary PrincipalWelcome to Lakeview Elementary!  Lakeview is a kindergarten through second grade elementary school located at 502 W. Haight Street just four blocks from beautiful Lake Michigan in Ludington.  We are a small family-oriented school where we partner with families to provide a well rounded education for our students.  

The staff and students at Lakeview Elementary take great pride in academics and extracurricular activities and are committed to preparing each of our students in all content areas for the global community, equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary for success. We strive daily to create a rigorous academic environment while ensuring systems are in place to meet each child’s academic, social and emotional needs.  We offer many differentiated opportunities for students which you may view in detail in our Points of Pride.  We strive to help each student SOAR at Lakeview through educational routines that promote Safety, Outstanding respect, And Responsibility.

Lakeview is on the cutting edge of technology and we are proud to offer 1:1 iPad devices to enhance the curriculum.  Each student uses technology to receive instruction, individual practice as well as create and access information.  We are excited to offer a roving Chromebook Lab to students in classrooms this school year.

We have a very active Parent Teacher Committee that provides financial and volunteer support for all student and staff programs.  Lakeview is a great school that provides an environment for students to excel both socially and academically.

Feel free to visit us to see all of the wonderful things happening at Lakeview Elementary!

Light and Sound

First grade students built and tested their own miniature tree houses during their new science unit on Light and Sound.  Students had to decide on the location of the door and windows as well as the window coverings for each opening.  After testing each house on the light table, modifications could be made to allow for more or less light in the tree house.  Learning is always fun at Lakeview!
