Welcome to Friends of Lakewood!

Friends of Lakewood (or as it's known around the school, FOL) is a group of Dads dedicated to enhancing the educational experience of the students at Lakewood Elementary School. Started by a handful of Lakewood Dads in the Fall of 1982, FOL has grown into a large, active group of men who engage the students at Lakewood Elementary in many different ways, including the Math Maniacs Program, the Math Olympiad, the Lakewood Outdoor Learning Area, and the annual Field Day activities. We also provide support for the many different school activities that take place throughout the year, including the Fall Festival, Family Supper Night, the Science Fair, and the Spring Carnival, and you can even find us serving as crossing guards on Wendover!

We also take on fundraising for a capital project for the school each year, with recent successes being new playground equipment, a new 4th grade science lab, SMART Boards for a number of classrooms, and a Computer On Wheels system (COW) to benefit the entire school.  We've also raised funds for technology improvements throughout the school and look forward to announcing the upcoming year's capital project!

Don't miss out on the fun! Join us today by emailing friendsoflakewood@gmail.com.
