Message from Principal Thompson

Stallion Families,

Thank you so much to all the families who helped donate to Stallion Strong this year! I am so thankful for your generosity and support of our students. I enjoyed my time with the parents of 3B who met their goal of 100 % participation. 

Just a few things happening on campus that we want to ensure you know about:

  1. This Monday, October 11th we will be conducting a short online survey through Panorama Education with our Stallions in regard to their Social/ Emotional learning skills such as self-management and self-efficacy. This data is crucial as we work to meet not only student academic needs but also social/emotional needs. The feedback will provide invaluable insights into student experiences and how to improve and adapt our school to their needs.  If you have any question or concerns about the survey administration, don’t hesitate to contact Ms. Booth, our 3-5 school counselor at 972-749-7319 or dbooth@dallasisd.org.
  2. Additionally, next week we will have our first lockdown drill for the school year. Lockdown drills are important so that we can prepare and educate our students about the proper and safe way to act in case of an emergency. Please reach out to your teacher if you have any questions. Thanks! 

Stallion Strong,

Principal Thompson

Message from Nurse Sundin

At Lakewood, we are prioritize the health and safety of all of our students. If you have received an immunization request letter from Nurse Sundin, it means that your student is still missing some vaccinations in order to be compliant and remain at school. 

Per Texas Department of State Health and Dallas ISD policy, your student must be fully compliant with vaccinations or have a valid original Affidavit of Exemption submitted or on file. Please send an updated vaccination record to Nurse Sundin by 10/12. You can e-mail vaccination records to jsundin@dallasisd.org or fax to 972-749-7201 attn School Nurse. If you have affidavits, please bring the original to the school. 

If you have not received a letter sent home with your student, you do not need to re-send a vaccination record.  Please contact school nurse at 972-749-7309 if you have any questions. Thanks!

The Lakewood Home Tour Street-View Edition, organized by the Lakewood Early Childhood PTA, is one of the biggest fundraisers of the year for our school. On Saturday, November 13 from 11:00am - 3:00pm stop by each home and check out the activations outside. Each site will feature a different theme - think pumpkins, fiesta fun, a trip to the fair and maybe a visit from Santa too! Then join the Candlelight Tour Saturday night from 6:00pm - 9:00pm and enjoy a toast while seeing the grounds of each beautiful home.
