    Curriculum

    Lakeway Elementary strives to create a positive learning environment geared to meet the needs of students, teachers, and the community. Students are expected to gain self-esteem, problem solving skills and leadership qualities, and to develop a team player attitude as they acquire a life-long desire to learn. Teachers, school staff, parents and community encourage students to meet high expectations for learning and behavior. Language arts, reading, writing, math, science and social studies are integrated through a unit approach. Social skills and character education, including behavioral expectations, are taught daily.  Students are expected to make good decisions for their learning and behavior based on what they are taught. Drop Everything And Read (DEAR) is built into the daily schedule to help establish a lifelong love of reading.  A reading teacher is available to offer help as needed.  In the library, students learn to enjoy literature, use the library and develop research skills.
