Lake Elementary Celebrates “B” Rating, Significant Improvment

Lake Elementary School, located at 472 Mt Vernon Ave., celebrated its “B” rating on November 17, 2017, with a parade and awards program. The celebration represents a significant increase from the previous years rating.

Students and staff were dressed as superheroes in keeping with the theme, “Student Growth is Our Superpower.” The cheerleaders and band from Provine High School entertained the crowd of celebrants. School adopters joined the students, teachers, staff, and parents in attendance.

Highlights of the school’s achievements include:

85% of fourth- and fifth-grade students showed growth in mathematics.
83% of fifth-grade students were proficient or advanced in science.
60% of fourth- and fifth-grade students showed growth in reading.

Principal LaKeisha Sutton credits a large part of the school’s success to regular, open communication between the parents and teachers. She is extremely proud of Lake’s success but says it can always be better. Therefore, she has set a goal of the school achieving an “A” rating next year.
