On May 4th, the WSD Board met and voted to approve the boundary change. The members of the board reviewed the proposals over the past several days and discussed the pros and cons of each proposal with district officials. Last night it was voted to accept Proposal #1. This decision means that beginning in August 2016, Pleasant View students located along and to the North/West of 1375 West will attend Lomond View Elementary and North Ogden students located in the area east of 150 West and North of 2200 North will attend North Ogden Elementary. We are excited and eager to meet the new families that will be attending our school this coming year! Please introduce yourself to them and show them what it means to be a lion!
Those living in area A will be attending Lomond View! The original boundaries for Lomond View will remain the same (in purple).
Target has set out to donate $5 million through their #ThanksABillion campaign.
Every time someone creates a Facebook post thanking a teacher through the #ThanksABillion site, Target will give $25 to that school (up to $25,000 per school).
Here's a sample message:
#ThanksABillion [school name] teachers for changing lives. Shout out to [teacher name] for [message]! From a local [#readingpartner/parent/#volunteer/etc].
Let's make this campaign go viral for our schools!

Lomond View Elementary is located in the heart of Pleasant View, Utah on the benches of the majestic Ben Lomond Peak. Lomond View is enthusiastic about student achievement because of the efforts of its approximately 600 students, 1,300+ parents & grandparents, 25 teachers and 18 support staff. This dedication is manifest in our performance in the top 10% of Weber School District on CRT, and other benchmark testing. Services provided include complete regular and resource education courses, counseling, and speech therapy. Occupational and physical therapy are provided on an as-needed basis. Breakfast and lunch are served each day school is in session. As home of the Lions, we take pride in providing a safe learning environment where we help each other succeed, and consistently improve ourselves. The Lomond View Lions are a proud part of the Weber School District.
A few of the great opportunities students can choose to participate in include: Orchestra, Choir, Science Club, Lego Robotics Club, Math & Science Olympiad, Iron Kid competition, Chess Club, multiple service projects, and the Newbery Bingo Challenge. Lomond View Elementary is committed to staying current on technology and best teaching practices. This year we added 10 iPads per grade for student use, and staff members participated in over 1,400 combined hours of professional development.
The school was originally constructed in 1959. Six additional classrooms and an enclosed ramp connecting the upper and lower concourses were added in 1967. In 1985, extensive modifications were made including the addition of a large gymnasium and storage areas, four new classrooms, a new media center, and an enlarged kitchen space. Spring of 2011 brought a new coat of paint and updated floor coverings to most of the common areas of the school and the upper concourse classrooms. The PTA recently added a new electronic marquee to better help the school inform our clientele of important events.
New 'Drop Off' Procedures:
Parents, we would like to thank the PTA for their wonderful help in making our drop off run more smoothly and more safe this year. Using the area out front for cars to drop off students seems to have make the drop off easier and quicker. We love their great ideas, and in an attempt to be more safe and decrease some of the congestion that is still occurring at 8:30, we are going to make the following changes and offer a few suggestions:
Changes: the front doors will remain locked from 8:15 until 8:45 AM. We are trying to encourage students to not congregate in front of the building before school. With large groups there, horseplay often occurs and there is a danger of students getting bumped out in to the lanes where cars are coming by. Instead if they come for breakfast the will use the 3rd/4th grade hallway entrance. Those not coming for breakfast can wait by the doors where they come in from recess and then come in when the bell rings at 8:28. We have playground supervision in the morning out by the big toy and when the morning is cold or raining, we also have supervision in the portable where students can go to stay warm and dry. We are hoping that this will also encourage students coming from the north to be dropped off at the top of the stairs in the north parking lot. Parents can then turn right on to 3650 N. and avoid all congestion on 900 W. Never drop off or pick up students on the other side of the road on 900 W. Students coming from the south can be dropped off on 900 W. (on the side closest to the school so they don't have to cross the road) or in the drop off circle and then walk around to the door where they come in at recess. Parents then should be able to turn around and return south bound on 900 W. We realize this is an ideal situation and not all drivers will know about the plan, but we hope to educate parents and students well so they can help grandparents, carpools and other drivers of the 'best' option. Locking the front doors will start January 20th. We will have a week where we have some friendly helpers and reminders out front for students.
Suggestions: The parking lot of the church on the corner of Pleasant View Dr. and 900 W. has a lot of space and is a great option for dropping off students. They then get some great exercise to get the blood flowing to their brains. Also, walking with your students is a great way to get them talking to you-something you are going to wish they did more of when they turn 16.
