Campus Vision:

Lamar Elementary is committed to promoting reflective, lifelong learners who will thrive as kind, productive citizens in a global community.

Campus Mission:

At Lamar Elementary our charge is to connect, encourage, and love ALL children EVERY day. We will create a safe, collaborative, and child-focused environment that provides students with innovative learning experiences and high levels of engagement.

A Message from Mrs. Belcher:

Leopard families,


As we continue to see an increase in Covid, please continue to review the CISD website for the most up to date information. https://www.conroeisd.net/roadmap-to-reopening/


This week, the Leopard Den will be closed for cleaning and organization. If your child receives a green Leopard Den pass, please hold onto it. Students may begin redeeming their Leopard Den access the week of January 18th.


This Thursday night is Spirit Night at Red Robin from 5:00-9:00 p.m. Red Robin will donate part of the proceeds back to Lamar. We hope to see you there!



Have a great week,



Kristen Belcher, Principal
