Special Programs

At Lakewood Park, we believe in doing everything possible to make your LPCS experience memorable for the whole family through our special programs.

Junior Achievement-Grades 2 – 6 participate in Junior Achievement one hour a week for six weeks. Upper elementary students go to Biz Town in Fort Wayne for a full day in spring. Lakewood parents and community members serve this program as volunteers.

Reading Programs-Book-It is a reading program incentive offered through Pizza Hut. If the child meets a reading goal set by his or her teacher during the month, he or she receives a certificate for a personal pan pizza. Some grades also participate in the Fort Wayne TinCaps reading program where students can earn free tickets to a baseball game.

Field Day-During the last week of school, the elementary PE teacher plans a Field Day for students in grades K – 6. Parent volunteers are appreciated!

Grandparents’ Day-Once a year, Lakewood invites children in PreK-6th grade to bring their grandparents or a special person to visit the school. Various activities are planned including time in the classroom, a book fair, and a special program in the worship center.

Parties-Classroom parties may occur on holidays or special occasions throughout the year. Birthday treats for elementary students or teachers may be shared during the school day.

National Day of Prayer-On the National Day of Prayer (the first Thursday in May), special activities are planned to engage students in the power of prayer. Students spend time praying for the nation, community, and school throughout the day. Parents are encouraged to come and participate.

Some other special programs we offer are: our musical programs, Bible Buddies, Reading Buddies, community service project, summer camps, science fair, Spell Bowl and Kindergarten Graduation. We encourage all parents to participate as much as possible to help make their student’s elementary experience even more special.
