School Satellite Programs, Title 1 and CLC Support

School Satellite Programs: Villarreal Nebraska Academy is striving to break the pay-to-play model by making soccer accessible to all students in the Lincoln and surrounding areas. Students are prevented from participating in quality programs due to finances, transportation, and commitment constraints. Our program will be funded by private donors, grants, foundations or corporate sponsors, nominal participating fees and staffing income from benefiting organizations, if applicable. We will provide trained staff to the school site one time each week throughout the school year, work with the school staff, CLC Directors/Coordinators, and the PTO/PTA.

School Game Program

Games, Competitions and Recreational Programming

Lincoln Soccer Association will be organizing games between schools who are participating in the after school programs. This element to the program has given a lot of excitement, purpose and focus to the participants of the after school program. Having a purpose to focus on the skills and learning has excited the students. 

Spring 2021 we kicked off the game program with 3 Saturdays "drop-in soccer" programs. We had 4-8 staff attend the Saturday games. The first week 12 players attended, the second week 19 attended, the third week 29 attended. We are thrilled with the progress and the joy it has brought the participants and their families. 

The Saturday games will continue with 4 dates in the Summer of 2021 to keep some engagement, to get the academy players involved so that when after school soccer begins in August we can quickly kick off the Fall Saturday games. We expect to have 5-7 Saturdays and as the programming grows have a true school to school competition schedule. We will continue to grow this to additional schools and even to other children's organizations, refugee programs or underserved community areas. 

As we grow the Saturday games we will continue to work to have this a low-cost, organized recreational program for the community.  

Eventually we can provide additional training along with the competitions. 

The goal as the kids age out of the after school program is to identify players who are motivited by soccer, who are showing high levels of interested and desire to be part of an academy to sponsor a player each year so they can continue their soccer development from middle school to high school.  The ultimate goal is to see players be supported from Kindergarten to Senior Year and where college opportunities can change lives. 

Our programming is designed to grow each year and to support players from Kindergarten to Seniors. To give a purpose to work hard at school, to stay in school, and to strive for more. To eliminate the "pay to play" model and make a difference. 

LPS Lakeview Elementary School

About Lakeview 

Named for the area near Capitol Beach Lake, Lakeview School was a one-teacher school on West P Street until 1923 when the present building was constructed at 300 Capitol Beach Boulevard. Additions were added to the original building in 1963 and 1974. Currently, Lakeview is the academic home of approximately 300 kindergarten through fifth grade students from five different neighborhood areas.

Small class size and a dedicated staff make this learning environment ideal. Lakeview’s Community Learning Center offers a broad range of before and after school learning opportunities for students and along with the Lakeview Parent Teacher Organization sponsors activities that strengthen the partnership between the school and families.

Mission Statement

Team Lakeview believes that education is a foundation of life’s successes. Through purposeful instruction, guidance, and encouragement our students will excel and continuously grow.

Vision Statement

Team Lakeview will prepare students to be college and career ready by ensuring that we remain research-based, student centered, and use embedded digital content within our daily instruction. School faculty and staff will actively participate in ongoing training and continue to be student data focused to make learning consistently accessible to all students. Staff, parents, students, and community stakeholders will partner to encourage students to excel and perform at their maximum potential.  Using technology, teachers will facilitate collaborative conversations and guided instruction that will help students lead their own learning.

About McPhee 

Miss Clare McPhee became the fourth principal of of Capitol School in 1900. She remained as principal until 1942. Miss McPhee began teaching in the grammar grades at Capitol School. Her entire teaching career was spent at the school. Three generations of Lincoln children were her pupils. She watched the old capitol building come down. She also explained the building of the beautiful new structure. The top of Capitol School ,with its small steeple, can be seen between the steeple of St. Mary’s Church and the rising tower of the Capitol.

Clare McPhee

In 1914, the School Garden Program was started at the school. Four years later the building was modernized. In 1924, as construction of the new capitol was beginning, fire hazards were reduced at the school. The school continued to satisfactorily serve students until 1947, when the school was rated below standard on the Holy-Arnold score card. Planning started for needed improvements. Renovation continued in 1952, when a multipurpose room was added for lunch and Physical Education.

In 1964, the construction of Clare McPhee Laboratory School on the same block brought about the closing and demolition of Capitol School.

McPhee Mission Statement


School Improvement Goals

McPhee staff analyzes student achievement data each fall to determine the highest academic needs for the students in our building. Building wide goals are established collaboratively. Further analysis and discussion of needs then leads to the development of grade level “S.M.A.R.T. goals.” These goals guide the work that is done throughout the year to help students achieve success and to accomplish the building wide goals. McPhee’s building wide goals for the school year are: 1. To increase the knowledge, understanding and application of number sense across the curriculum for all students. 2. To increase the knowledge, understanding, and application of reading comprehension across the curriculum for all students.

About Everett

Everett History

  • When Everett Junior High School opened in 1928, Lincoln had a total of about 13,000 students. The original structure, which was built for a cost $314,507 was to accommodate 600 junior high students. The school was named for Edward Everett, an American statesman, orator, and scholar who lived from 1794-1865. Everett was a U.S. Congressman, Governor of Massachusetts, a U.S. Senator, Minister to England, President of Harvard University and a candidate for President. Before the junior high school facility was constructed, an elementary school was built in the late 1800’s at the corner of 12th and C street. With renovations completed in 1992, the site returns to its original use as an elementary school location.

Mission Statement

The focus of our school continues to be on increased student learning.  Our goal is for every child to show significant academic and social growth throughout the year.  Over the summer, our teachers have received extensive training in strategies for academic growth.  We have many of these strategies in place to ensure success for each child.  Many instructional programs and strategies are in place to ensure student success.  Interventions will be provided to support individual student needs during the school day and after school. 

We will continue our focus on attendance, with a goal of 96% of our students here on a daily basis.  We know that student learning is maximized when everyone is in attendance and able to participate in the learning activities that the instructors have planned.
