Congrats to Alanah Vetterick, Cody Lehman and Keegan Collins for earning their first varsity wins! I read an article, A Hab- itat for 21st Century Learn- ing, and it was referring to how schools need to be built to prepare students to thrive in a complex work environment. As I read it, I found myself becoming very proud of the design of Lakewood. I feel as if the design truly meets the needs of 21st century learning. The design at- tributes within Lakewood that support our learners include: Spaces to be shared by multiple groups I'm sure that Lakewood will be used by school and community groups. Spaces that support strong family partnerships The PTO has made involving families a main priority! A safe and secure, yet welcoming environment Having a secure vestibule and Keeping Track directs people to ei- ther the main office or the lobby. Clustering of class- rooms to create small learning environments Each of the class- rooms are in clusters and each teacher is a member of their own team and pro- fessional learning commu- nity. Flexible technology and appropriate display areas If you walk into the classroom, there is a good chance that students will have some type of technology in their hands. The commons serves as a presentation area for stu- dents as they do projects. As you can sense, I am pretty proud of the fore- thought that was put into the design of this building! Holiday Wish This is the time of year I when it is important that we reflect on the first part of the school year. If you look at the calendar, it is already December and close to half of the school year is gone. This is one of the best years that I can re- member. I will honestly attribute the quality of the year to the staff, parents and students at Lakewood. I have been truly blessed with a great fami- ly- --both personally and professionally. There are many similarities. First, each member of any fami- ly offers something differ- ent. Each family member offers something distinct- ly different, but each piece ADDITIONAL ATHLETIC/ACTIVITY NEWS Congratulations to Christian Belden and Tyler White- head who swim with the Lincoln Swim team for helping the Rails defeat metro rival Othamwa Monda3 Dec. 8, 107-56. The team is now 2 and 0 on the season and unde- feated in the metro conference. LAKEWOOD ELEMENTARY I of the whole creates a com- plete being. Each of our students has a different temperament and offers different talents for the building. Each child walk- ing in the building learns in different ways. If there is one thing that is the same, it is the compassion that they slaow for giving their best each day of the year. Enjoy your families and your friends and make sure that you allow your child to take the time need- ed to refresh themselves for the rest of the school year. I'm truly sincere when I tell you how blessed I am to work with SCHOOL AND SPORTS PAGES SPONSORED BY: *WENDY BORST MASSAGE, LMT 240-1075 *COMMUNITY BANK 285 -4900 *FOUR SEASONS AUTO WASH 981-4454 *NORWALK FAMILY DENTISTRY 256-9000 *HASKIN CHIROPRACTIC CLINIC 981-0556 *EDWARD JONES INVESTMENTS Kevin Pearson - 285-1838 *NORWALK LIONS CLUB 981-0432 *OPTOMETRIC ASSOCIATES 981-0224 *SCOTT'S FOODS 981-0606 *NEWTON STANDRIDGE STANDRIDGE GROUP 229-5310 *N/WARREN TOWN & COUNTY NEWS 981-0406 the community of Nor- walk.
