News from Lancaster County School District, October 2023
Lancaster County Community,
October is National Principals Month! Please join me in celebrating our principals during this month of national recognition. Our principals set the academic foundation to create the best educational framework for our students.
Thank you to all the LCSD principals who work tirelessly to put our children first. We are grateful to all our principals for being such strong leaders today and every day.
Thank you for all you do. We couldn't do it without you!
Dr. Jonathan Phipps
Principals across the nation work hard to provide the best education and leadership possible and we know that better than anyone, don't we?!! We have some fantastic leaders right here in LCSD.
