Start of the School Year

  • The beginning of the academic year has been a huge success! I want to thank our families, teachers, and faculty for helping us get off to a great start.
Joyful Learning

  • This school year, LES intends to emphasize joyful learning. Joyful learning will be implemented each morning as students walk into their classrooms. The 4 Cs—collaboration, communication, critical thinking skills, creativity, and, of course, joy—will be emphasized in team-based learning activities that are fun, enriching, and engaging for the students. We want our students to start their day with a positive experience that will help them feel prepared and at ease for the rest of the day. Joyful learning provides a focus on social skills while promoting engagement and academic growth.
Attendance
  • Please be sure you look at our calendar and check our website/social media pages regularly to stay up to date on LES' latest events and announcements. Additionally, please keep in mind how important attendance is. Please ensure that your child is at school every day and on time (unless ill). Our young Mustangs lose important instructional time when they are regularly absent, tardy, or checked out. We appreciate your assistance!

The Importance of Regular School Attendance
  • Students with regular attendance learn to be responsible and successful in the classroom. Regular attendance is critically important because students who are absent lose instructional time, which can have a negative impact on academic performance. Here are some ways to improve your child’s attendance:
  • Make sure your children keep a regular bedtime and establish a morning routine.
  • Lay out clothes and pack backpacks the night before.
  • Ensure your children go to school every day unless they are sick.
  • Avoid scheduling vacations or doctor’s appointments when school is in session.
  • Talk to teachers and counselors for advice if your children feel anxious about going to school.
  • Let’s work together to ensure your child has the best education possible by coming to school regularly!

1:1 Initiative
  • LES is pleased with the county's recent initiatives to equip all GCPS schools with one device per student. During the instructional day, every student in the county will have access to a device and have an equal opportunity to use instructional technology tools and curricular software.
  • While students in Grades K–12 will have access to a device in the classroom, students in Grades 3–12 will be provided a device that may be brought home when instructed by their teacher. This gives teachers and support staff more opportunities to educate our students about proper technology care and the importance of being a responsible digital citizen.
Device Care & Chromebook Sleeves

  • It is important to ensure these devices are transported properly in the sleeve at all times to avoid any damage to the device. While teachers have addressed the importance of the sleeves with students, we encourage parents to speak to their children about the importance of using the sleeve at all times when transporting the device and taking good care of the sleeves as well.
  • We expect students to be Ready, Respectful, and Responsible regarding their Chromebooks. Chromebooks should be Ready by having them charged each night if taken home, Respectful by not writing on them or adding stickers, etc., and Responsible by transporting them in the sleeve and carrying them by the keyboard, not the monitor/screen.

Media Center Orientations
  • Welcome back to the LES Library Media Center! Kindergarten - fifth-grade classes visit the media center for a class orientation in August and September to learn about the many new and awesome books they can check out. Most of these new books were purchased with a $50,000 Dollar General grant we received last school year. Your child’s teacher will let you know when your child may visit the library media center to check out books. Please encourage your child to enjoy and take care of our library books and return them for more. Also, please enjoy the library media center books WITH your child! I am asking for your support in helping your child “Catch the Reading Bug” this school year.
Summer Reading is Magic Challenge
  • Congratulations to all our LES Summer Readers! 154 LES students completed the Beanstack Reading is Magic Summer Reading Challenge! They celebrated with a magic show on Thursday, August 25, 2022. They also received a bag of magical prizes. The grand prize winner, Erick, won a Fire HD tablet. During this school year, as we “Catch the Reading Bug,” your child may “bee” our guest at the next reading celebration. All your child has to do is complete our prize-filled Beanstack Reading Challenge on our Lilburn Elementary eClass webpage. Don’t let this school year fly by without your child catching the reading bug.
September Media Center Events

  • Hispanic Heritage Month - Hispanic Heritage Month, September 15th - October 15th, is a time to pay tribute to the generations of Hispanic and Latino Americans who have positively influenced and enriched our nation and society. Your child can join the LES Hispanic Heritage Month celebration at home by completing activities on our Lilburn Elementary eClass webpage. On October 13, 2022, we will have a Hispanic Heritage Month Fair that will feature Latin food, music, traditional games, country-themed tables, and dancing.
