Experts in our Classroom

Do you work in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering or Math) field? We would love to add you to our internal list of experts that could be invited to speak in or be a live audience for the presentation of our projects that we develop with Project Based learning. We welcome a variety of careers. One of our chief goals at Prestwick is for all learning to be meaningful, relevant and authentic. Your participation in any of these capacities is always welcome.


To have your information added to an internal directory please email our counselor, Sandy Burrell at sburrell@leisd.ws or by leaving her a message at 972-947-9450. Include your full name, career field, times you are available and the best contact information.


Feel free to share with coworkers or others in the field as well.

Attendance Matters

Attendance is very important for each child's learning. We are aiming to top last years attendance rate by maintaining 98% daily.


Thank you for your help in attaining our goal - Be sure when your child is absent to send a doctor's note via to the teacher or email to aheselton@littleelmisd.net.


We appreciate notes or emails when a family trip is taken; however, be aware that those absences will be counted as unexcused.
