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
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!
