Friends of Lakewood (FOL) is the Father’s organization associated with Lakewood Elementary. We are a 501c(3) organization that has been providing for Lakewood Elementary since 1982. Our membership for the 2014-2015 school year has topped 450 members and is comprised of dads that are dedicated to enhancing the educational experience of the students of Lakewood Elementary School. FOL engage the students in many different ways, including, but not limited to, Math Maniacs, Math Olympiad, Camp Lakewood, and our annual Field Day activities.
Friends of Lakewood raised over $80,000 dollars during the 2014-2015 school year. These funds were procured from generous FOL Cornerstone Members donations, two Camp Lakewood outings, Dallas Mavericks/Dallas Stars Lakewood nights, and several other events. Last year, FOL was able to fulfill many classroom related needs as well as fund grade level field trips, school concerts, and provide new Smart Board/Digital Classrooms to many classrooms that did not have the technology..
