Superintendent's Message


We thank you for allowing us the opportunity to educate your scholar. We are excited to continue partnering with students and families. We vow to work diligently to give our scholars the best education possible.

Please help us stay safe and continue to send your scholars to school with a mask each day.

Principal's Message

Dear Parents/Guardians,

It is hard to believe that the 2021-2022 school year is at the half way point! In fact, the 100th day of school is February 9th. To celebrate this milestone, ALL scholars/staff will be participating in "Dress Like Your 100" day.

Our annual Kindergarten Roundup will be on Thursday, March 10, 2022 at 5:30 p.m. If you know anyone with a child that will be eligible for the 2022-2023 kindergarten class, please spread the word about our upcoming registration. Re-enrollment will begin on Monday, March 7th, if you plan for your scholar to attend Lee A Tolbert for the upcoming school year please log onto the portal to enroll your scholar(s).

Equally important, February 16th and 17th will be our winter Parent Teacher Conferences. Look for a Sign Up Genius link from the classroom teachers.

Additional information contained in this newsletter serves as a valuable resource to keep you updated on important information as it relates to teaching, learning, and enriching your child’s school experience.
