Lake View Elementary School Reviews
Shane, I also was an inaugural year student. Latter semester of Kindergarten or perhaps 1st grade. I did 1st-half of Kindergarten at Rancho View Elementary off Warner Avenue. Then Lake View was built. The school song was an adaptation of This Land is Your Land...which I fully remember but won't post here. The Principal was Mr. Elmendorf - he had a paddle in his office which may, or may not, have been used on naughty kids (perhaps it was for effect only). It hung on his office wall. It was a good school and I recall a few teachers who taught really importnat life lessons (like kindness and respect, etc.) but the only one whose name I can recall at the moment was Mr. Goulding, who could do one-handed push-ups and chin-ups - which was impressive at the time. A 3rd or 4th grade male teacher trained us to respond to, "Attention!," when the class got too noisy. We would instantly sit up straight with our hands folded on the desk before us. Pretty remarkable, in hindsight. I recall the lunch area where milk and those awesome burgers and personal pizzas could be purchased through the aluminum cashier booth. I've recently become a devote of those Coronet and Centron instructional films they'd show from time-to-time in class back then. Somewhere in the late 60's the Recreation Center was built just North of the basketball blacktop. I used to play cushion billiards and ping-pong in there and they'd have movies on 16 mm each week for kids - perhaps in Summer only. I took my grade-school kids there a couple of years ago so they could see where Dad went to school. Looks very much the same. Good memories of those days. I still recall how excited I would get when the teachers in the lower grades would pin notes or homework to our shirts so our parents would get them. Those seemed like Top Secret documents to me so I would NEVER touch them or read them...or so my memory informs me (then again, I seem like an angel in my memory, so that can't be strictly true, can it?).
I was one of the first students to attend Lake View. I was in the 3rd grade and it was 1966. I watched it being built from my bedroom window (I lived on Friesland Dr. My house backed up to the school's field area). I sure had a good time and many memories from Lake View school. Go Lions!
