The Senior 1st grade program has been an integral part of Lakeview Christian Academy for over a decade. Each fall seniors are paired with a first grade student. They meet each week to play, learn and develop relationships. The students participate in many projects together including shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child and buying Christmas gifts for area families in need. They take trips together including a trip to the zoo. The year's highlight for many is the first grade students participating in the graduation ceremony. These relationships many times span past the walls of Lakeview Christian Academy. Students have participated in weddings and continue to be in contact with their respective "senior" or first grade student as they grow and then... the first grader becomes a senior and pours into the life of their first grader.
