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!

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 Dan Brown and Catie Martynowicz to our Lake team. Dan joins us from Temple Heights and Catie has come all the way from Chicago! 

Back to School Night will be Thursday August 28th from 5:30-7:30. Please plan to join us to meet your child's teacher and get the details for the year ahead! 

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!

Mrs. Berntsen
