From the Principal
Dear Lakeview families,
It seems like such a short time ago we were welcoming our students on the first day of school. It has been a wonderful school year and our students have made tremendous growth!
The month of June brings us fun activities and events but it is important that our students continue to work hard on academics through the end of the school year.
We look forward to the last weeks of school with all of you. Please continue to keep solid routines at home as we come down the home stretch. I want to thank you for a great school year and all of the work you do to support your children and help them to succeed and grow.

Mahopac Board of Education Recognized for Dedication to Students and Community
The New York State School Boards Association recognized October 21 - 25 as School Board Recognition Week. A time to promote awareness and understanding of the important work performed by school board members, Mahopac Central School District (MCSD) joined all public school districts across the state to celebrate School Board Recognition Week to honor local board members for their commitment to Mahopac and its children.
“It takes strong schools to build a strong community, and these women and men devote countless hours to making sure Mahopac schools are helping every child learn at a higher level and are ready for the future” Anthony DiCarlo, superintendent of Mahopac Schools said. “They make the tough decisions and spend considerable time studying education issues and regulations in order to provide the kind of accountability our citizens expect.”
DiCarlo said the key work of school boards is to raise student achievement by:
- Creating a shared vision for the future of education
- Setting the direction of the school district to achieve the highest student performance
- Providing accountability for student achievement results
- Developing a budget that aligns district resources to improve achievement
- Supporting a healthy school district culture in which to work and to learn
“School board members give the Mahopac community a voice in education decision making. Their contribution is a year-round commitment,” DiCarlo said.
The members serving MCSD are as follows:
Leslie Mancuso, President
Michael Mongon, Vice-President
David Furfaro, Trustee
Lawrence Keane, Trustee
Lucy Massafra, Trustee
Ray McDonough, Trustee
Mark O’Connor, Trustee
Adam Savino, Trustee
Michael Simone, Trustee
Mahopac Board of Education members were recognized at their monthly meeting on October 24 and honored with a reception after the meeting.LV News & Headlines
Lakeview shares their Breakthrough Classroom experience with visiting elementary teachers
Educators from the Dobbs Ferry, Newburgh and Pine Bush school districts visited the Lakeview Elementary breakthrough classrooms today. From the way teachers use space, to the way they use technology, to the integration of makerspace, the visiting teachers and principals saw firsthand how Lakeview is fostering innovation, creativity, collaboration and the ability to solve complex problems into the education experience.
Mahopac Central School District has four Breakthrough Classrooms in each elementary school, six at the middle school, and five at the high school. Breakthrough classrooms help students learn the way information is presented to them today. The traditional system of education emphasized content because content was hard to get. Now content is easily accessible. Students who can use this content to solve problems, innovate, invent, and the like, will be college and career-ready.LV News & Headlines
