Information On Our Associated Organizations
Friends of Lakewood (FOL)
FOL is a group consisting of mostly Lakewood Dads dedicated to enhancing the educational experience of the students at Lakewood Elementary School. Started by a handful of Lakewood Dads in the Fall of 1982, FOL has grown into a large, active group of men who engage the students at Lakewood Elementary in many different ways, including hosting the Math Maniacs Program, the Math Olympiad, Fall and Spring Campouts, and an Annual Cornhole Tournament. They also provide support for many different school activities that take place throughout the year including putting on the much anticipated Haunted House at our Fall Festival, helping out with maintenance in the Lakewood Outdoor Learning Area, assisting with Field Day activities, and you can even find them serving as crossing guards during morning carpool!
