A video message from Principal Joëlle Rudick, September 2023:


Welcome, bonjour, pijashin! It is my great pleasure to partner with families, and work with a talented and committed staff to support the students at Lakeview. As a principal, I have high expectations of myself and for all of our students and staff. I believe that treating others with kindness is essential to our partnership. I live by this belief as I work conscientiously and with an open mind with students, families, staff, and community members. Students and adults are welcome to call me Joëlle (pronounced Jo-WELL) or Madame Joëlle.

The partnership between school and families is essential to supporting each student in their learning and wellbeing. Our shared goal is to set every child up for success, now and in the future. Families are welcomed to join us at school on many occasions, including volunteering opportunities in classrooms, on field trips, for assemblies, at School Council meetings, and at other special events.

Everyone is welcome here! As a school, we are dedicated to providing a welcoming and inclusive environment for all. We value and celebrate diversity, which helps contribute to a positive learning and work environment. I am committed to championing human dignity and working to make the changes necessary to support success and wellbeing for all those I serve and lead. I know that I will not always get it right.  I am open to feedback from students, families and colleagues - especially from those whose racial, cultural, ethnic or sexual identities are different from my own. If you feel I am not hearing your concerns from your perspective or acting on my commitments, please let me know in person, virtually or in writing. You may also contact my superintendent or our People, Culture and Leadership department directly. In all interactions with me, you are welcome to bring a community advocate. 
As a school leader, one of my goals is to listen with openness and curiosity. I look forward to hearing from you.
In partnership, Joëlle
