Welcome Crista Leamons

It is my absolute honor to share that Crista Leamons will be the new Principal of Lietz Elementary. Aside from her extensive background and knowledge in the world of education, Crista is student-centered and incredibly collaborative. On Thursday, we walked every classroom so that students had a chance to meet her. Her warm and caring personality shined through. Coming from DMS, she already has a good pulse on the community and knows many of you!

Thank you for allowing me to serve you these past 4.5 years. I will miss your kids terribly... I look forward to continuing friendships and to continuing my relationship with each of you as a parent!
