• Summer Learning

    Posted by Frank Kleyn at 6/23/2017

    Lake Forest Park teachers encourage our students to participate in summer reading programs found at the KCLS (Lake Forest Park, Shoreline, Richmond Beach) Libraries.

    One of the benefits of visiting your public library over the summer is that it helps readers avoid "summer learning loss."  Students who read and learn over the summer continue to make academic progress and have a strong start their new school year.   

    Visit your library's website to place holds on books.  The Librarians will find your books and put them aside for you.  When you visit the Library, the books will be waiting for you to check out. It's easy!

    The links below are my recommendations for summer reading and learning.  You'll find
    more ideas on our PTA's website.

    Keyboarding Practice

    To practice keyboarding skills, students in grades 3-6 can login to using their district Google account.  This free online keyboarding program will teach them how to type and track their progress.  It is recommended that students spend just 10 minutes a day working on keyboarding.

  • Yancey C. Blalock Lodge Awards Four Bikes to Lake Forest Park Students

    Posted by Frank Kleyn at 6/22/2017

    Seattle’s Yancey C. Blalock Freemason Lodge generously offered their “Bikes for Books” program to Lake Forest Park Elementary to encourage students to read books and lead a healthy, active life. From February to June, K-6 students who met their teacher’s monthly reading goal entered a ticket into the “Bikes for Books” drawing.  On the last day of school, our librarian, Frank Kleyn, along with members of the Yancey C. Blalock lodge drew four names to win bicycles.  Titus R., Grace M., Rebecca R., and Tyler B., were the readers whose names were drawn to win a bike and a gift certificate for a new helmet.  

    All Lake Forest Park students were inspired to read books and participate in the “Bikes for Books” program.  Our staff and students thank the Yancey C. Blalock Freemason Lodge for encouraging our students to read books and ride bikes.  Thank you!

  • Shells and Jeweler's Loupes!

    Posted by Frank Kleyn at 6/2/2017

    Kindergarteners had a wonderful time exploring and sketching a variety of seashells using jeweler's loupes. Students learned that libraries have books that teach and books that entertain and summer is a great time to go to the public library.  It's also a wonderful time to go to the beach!
