Welcome to a NEW school year! The excitement of everything NEW is in the air: NEW teacher, NEW classroom, NEW friends, NEW backpack, NEW lunchbox,  NEW school supplies, NEW clothes, NEW shoes, and a NEW beginning to a NEW school year. This is a very different year as we have some students in the building and some students at home. However, we are ALL learning together! This is a special year for LES, because we celebrate 20 years of educating students. In 2001, LES opened its doors to students on August 6th. I remember the smiles on everyone’s face as they walked through the doors of the first school in Lakeland, TN. It was an exciting day 20 years ago and we are still full of excitement 20 years later.


If you have not, I encourage you to join our award winning PTA. Our parents work extremely hard to make sure our classrooms, students, and teachers have everything they need to be successful. I hope all of you were able to watch the virtual curriculum night for your respective grade levels on August 18th. This was your opportunity to meet your child’s teacher and hear expectations for the year. Your child’s teacher is your first source of contact and I encourage you to build a positive partnership with him or her. I look forward to working with you as partners in educating your child(ren). I am honored to be your Principal and look forward to a phenomenal year.
