Lake Vision - World Cafe

Lake is in the process of crafting a new vision for our school as we move toward the future.  This week, we are holding two parent forums to gather your input:  Wednesday, 9/24 at 2:30 p.m. and Thursday 9/25 at 6:00 p.m.  We hope to see you there to share your ideas for how Lake can become the model of excellence and innovation!  


If you cannot be there in person, we would appreciate your contribution through an online survey.  Click here to give us your ideas!

Principal's Message

I am thrilled to be your new Principal and working with our amazing Lake community this year!

Our awesome custodial crew has been busy cleaning, repairing and preparing our school for a super year! Teachers have been on campus throughout the summer planning and organizing classrooms! They haven't stopped working hard to make the year great for you. We'd like to welcome Tiffany Ortenzo and Catie Martynowicz to our Lake team. 


Lake Elementary PTA is excited to offer some amazing new programs including a gardening and running club. They are still looking for volunteers! Please like the Lake Elementary Facebook page to stay connected and informed!

We hope this year will be inspiring for students and families! Thank you for all you do to support our learning community. We hope to see you all often and work together to make this year the best ever!

Assistant Principal Message

Hello, Lake!  
I am so excited to join the Lake family this year as the new assistant principal!  I have had the pleasure to call Vista Unified my home for the last ten years, teaching both 5th and 6th grades.  Last year, I went on special assignment as a Content Support Resource Teacher, supporting and coaching teachers across the whole district.  During that year I got to meet students, teachers, and parents at Lake, and I knew I wanted to be a part of the community here.  I couldn't be more thrilled to be coming to Lake full time!  
My door is always open, and I look forward to getting to know you and your children!
