What a difference a year can make!
Riverview Elementary has gone from tears to cheers. Upon learning our school was staying open many changes have come about. Adopting a S.T.E.A.M approach to education was just the start. Parents, staff and community members have worked tirelessly to help transform our school and encourage its new direction into the future. The “Community Ties” group has been established with other area LBPSB schools and community centers. We’ve also recently received a grant from Lenovo & Softchoice for 20 iPad minis and 22 Chromebooks, as well as a $1000 grant from WalMart to help with developing our makerspace. Full steam ahead for Riverview!

The 2016-2017 school year has been one full of successes for Lakeside Academy
Slated for closure last year, the school’s staff and community rallied together to successfully save the school and keep it open indefinitely. The school is up in enrollment and has been incorporating new programs and initiatives at every grade level. Lego Robotics was introduced into the Grade 7 curriculum as was a basketball concentration. Our junior students in Robotics as well as our senior students on our Robotics team are preparing to compete in the Lego Robotics Competition and the First Robotics Competition. Our sports teams continue to do well in competition as do our students enrolled in our arts programs – music, drama and visual arts. Another new addition to our curriculum this year is a cross-curricular unit in Grade 7, allowing students to explore different First Nations culture, an implementation that will continue until all grade levels are included. In March 2016, Lakeside received the designation of being an official Community Learning Centre (CLC), a philosophy which will help enhance student success and preserve the vitality of the English community. Lakeside’s CLC has been exploring a range of different partnerships and grants aimed at enhancing services for students and the school’s surrounding communities. It is because of the constant dedication of Lakeside’s community, parents and staff that school continues to grow and thrive.
