Principal's Message

Hello LCE Parents,

Thank you for joining us last week during Parent Night. The parent-teacher connection is important for all of our student's success. We will be focusing on math and writing campus-wide this year. Here are a few things you can do at home to support our campus goals and your child's learning.

  • Read daily - Ask questions to see if they are understanding what they are reading.
  • Review homework - After homework is complete take time to review it with them.
  • Review math fact s- It's extremely important for our kids to know their basic math facts. They are building blocks for other math concepts.
  • Practice sight words at home

Thanks in advance for your support.

Remember Friday is Fort Bend County Fair Day. Enjoy your three day weekend!

Educationally Yours,

Christina Hopkins
