Thank you for visiting the Lake Garda School webpage!  We hope that you find it user friendly and informational.  The staff at Lake Garda School recognize the importance of school and family communication and welcome your suggestions as we strive to make our webpage the best that it can be.

Lake Garda School is one of two elementary schools located in Regional School District #10 which serves the Connecticut towns of Burlington and Harwinton.  We have approximately 450 students and 75 full and part time staff.  We are a proud PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports) school that recognizes its students for displaying appropriate behavior.  Lake Garda School has three schoolwide behavioral expectations:

  • Respectful – students should treat others as they wish to be treated
  • Responsible – students should make positive choices
  • Friendly – students should be welcoming

Students earn ‘Dolphin Dollars’ for displaying expected behaviors.  The Dolphin Dollars are counted and totaled each week.  Once the goal is reached, the entire school earns a reward.  Some of the rewards that have been earned in the past include:  extra recess, crazy hat and wig day, game day and a dance party.  We are proud of our students!


What's Happening

Summer vacation will fly by quickly, it always does!  

Don’t forget that books can go everywhere you go; please keep up the habit of daily reading.  It would also be great if you could find some time to integrate math into your summer play.  

It’s important that your children practice the new skills that they have been learning! You can use the links below to get more information about fun summer reading and math activities.
