Dear Families,

We want to wish you all a happy new year and best wishes for a safe and healthy 2022! We hope you are relaxed, recharged and ready to start a new semester. We are excited to see everyone Tuesday, January 4. Our excellent teachers are preparing challenging lessons. Our office staff is enrolling new students and ordering needed materials. Our hardworking custodians spent the holiday break cleaning our campus. Our cafeteria staff is ordering tasty food for breakfasts and lunches. Lee PTO is preparing for exciting events and programs. We are a famiLEE that works together and cares about the education and growth of our students.

Each year brings positive change. This includes a couple of additions to our staff. In music, we welcome Mrs. Anderson and in 5th grade science, we welcome Mrs. Miller. Both of these new staff members bring a vast knowledge for their subject and a passion for kids. We welcome you both the famiLEE.

Thank you all who are working so hard to make sure we have a successful second semester. It is our honor and privilege to serve as your principals at Lee. Stop by and say hello! Here is a look at what is happening to kick off the 2022 school year. As always, feel free to contact the school if you have any questions.

In service,

Mrs. Poteet & Mrs. Anderton
