Welcome to the 2016-17 school year! As your new principal, I am very excited to work with you and your children. Our assistant principal, Mrs. Cindy Roach and I are honored to be the instructional leaders of Lawnwood Elementary School.
We have a dedicated and skilled staff that is committed to fostering a growth mindset in all students as we they strive for success. Through rigorous academics, our goal is to prepare our students with the knowledge and skills they will need for college and a career.
Students will be coming home the first few weeks with many important documents for you to review, such as the dress code policy, student handbook and the code of conduct. Please read all communications thoroughly and return signed forms as appropriate. Each student will receive a daily planner. The planner is used to record homework assignments. It is also an excellent tool to promote parent-teacher communication. Parents are encouraged to review and sign the planner each night. .
There are many opportunities to become involved at Lawnwood Elementary. We welcome parents to join our PTO and School Advisory Council. Parents are also invited to volunteer at the school. Contact the front office for more information.
The beginning of the school year is always an exciting time for students as they meet new friends and anticipate the learning activities their teachers have planned for them. We look forward to partnering with you to ensure a positive educational experience.
Traci Wilke, Principal
