2019-20 LEAD on!

Welcome back, Sweet Staff! I am so happy to see your smiles and welcome you back to our home-away-from-home! I want to refer you back to the Mission Statement & Vision we all put together last year (by reflecting on what we would want for our children - and ALL children - at our school).


Learn each day

Empower others

Accept everyone

Develop your greatness


Lone Star Elementary will provide students with opportunities to excel academically, demonstrate respect and appreciation for each other, collaborate effectively for a greater purpose, and pursue personal strengths.

I think your words paint the perfect picture of our school. It is going to be a GREAT year!! I'm so proud and honored to begin another year with you.

We are amazing because of the strength of ALL. The teamwork and collaboration (OK, I have to say it - the synergy!) at our school is what makes it such a special place. Enjoy this video below that is just about helping and love...

All the feels.

See you soon!
