Mission 2 $ave Program

As part of our WAVE Wednesdays and looking toward our students futures, we have begun our Mission Federal Mission 2 $ave Program!  Every student can open a savings account with as little as 25 cents and begin the journey to saving for college and their futures.  


A flyer came home with your student the last week of September.  Complete the application and bring it with your student before school on WAVE Wednesday to get started!  We have more applications in the office if you need one.  You may also take the application directly into the MFCU branch located on Civic Center Drive.  


A big shout out goes to the nearly 160 students who got their savings accounts started!  Way to go, Dolphin Savers!

Looking for the Calendar?

We have moved the calendar to a new spot on our website.  


Click "Our School" --> then click on "School Calendar"  


This new calendar will always be the most up-to-date place to find out what's happening at Lake!  Check back often and mark your calendars when you see important events for you and your student.  

Principal's Message

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


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


WAVE Wednesdays are savings days! Wear your college gear to promote college readiness and deposit to your Mission 2 Save account before school every Wednesday. We are proud to work with Mission Federal Credit Union to develop financial literacy. 


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!  
Lindsay Freestone
