Summer Celebration ☀️

Save the date for Friday, June 3rd from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm when our students and their families will have a chance to celebrate the end of a great year. The Summer Celebration features carnival games and activities, food and drinks and a raffle with tons of great prizes!  

Every Lakewood student will receive complimentary tickets for a meal (pizza or hot dog, chips and a drink) and to play a few games.  Students will also receive a complimentary raffle ticket.  Students may purchase additional food, game and raffle tickets for themselves or their families. Look for a flyer in your student’s backpack with an order form in the coming days.

Students look forward to the Summer Celebration each year but it takes a lot of volunteers and donations to make it happen.  Here is how you can help!
