A Note From The Principal  


 At the end of the day, the most overwhelming key to a child’s success is 

the positive involvement of their parents.” –

Dear Lewisdale Elementary School Community,

 With the end of the first marking period drawing near, this month tends to go by more quickly than we would like. The part of November that is most important to me is the idea of Thanksgiving and the real meaning behind this holiday. I was raised by a grandmother who instilled in me a focus on showing gratitude. While we didn’t always have a lot, she taught us the importance of truly being thankful.

 I would like to take this opportunity to remind LES parents/guardians -You are a role model. Parents are often the most important role models for children. When you choose to eat right and be physically active, your child will be more likely to make those choices, too. Plus, being active and preparing healthy meals together are great ways to spend quality time with your family.

 We appreciate your support and dedication. Just a reminder, students travel by car continues to be a concern as our car rider lane can be extremely long each day. Please follow the procedures set forth in this area and know our main goal is student safety. So often parents are in a hurry and try to bypass other cars after dropping their own children off. We ask that you practice patience. We are working to move cars through quickly and together, we can make this happen.

 As principal, I have two main responsibilities - to keep students learning and to keep them safe. I appreciate your support as I care for your children each day. I am truly thankful to be a part of this community.
