Lakeview Student/Teacher Team Competes
for a Cause

Lakeview Elementary 5th grade teacher Alexa Wohrley and student Makenna Seghers competed together in the TriZou Triathlon in Columbia on May 4th. They raised over $400 for Pedal the Cause, and the money will go to Children’s Hospital and the Siteman Cancer Center. The triathlon consisted of a 400 meter swim (that's 16 lengths of a lap pool for the non-swimmers), 15 miles on the bike through the hills of Columbia, and then a 5K run. Makenna has raced to raise money for cancer foundations in the past and wanted to continue this year with her triathlon season to help fund research for those fighting cancer. She has dedicated almost every triathlon she has competed in to a cancer survivor, and she writes their name on her calf during the race. Makenna says that if she gets tired, she just thinks of that person who is fighting a much harder race, and it gives her the strength to go on… congratulations ladies!
Solar Panel Installation Begins at District Buildings

The Wentzville School District has partnered with Brightergy of Missouri to place up to 17 solar-power systems on the roofs of schools and other buildings around the District. Construction began in early May, so you may see Brightergy or electrical contractor trucks and large wooden boxes on pallets in a roped-off area of our parking lots. For the safety of our students and staff, all materials will be lifted to the roof during non-school hours. You may also see the boxes and additional safety roping atop the roof and depending on where the array is located, you may also see the workers installing the system. The solar-power systems will either rest atop buildings with a flat roof, or be attached directly to some of our pitched roofs. >>>FULL STORY
