Month"LEE" Scoop

May 2021 Newsletter

Dear Families,

Thank you for a wonderful and productive school year. We can’t thank everyone enough for your endless hours of reading, learning, donating and doing whatever was necessary to support students—both at home and at school. We want to thank our PTO who, as usual, went above and beyond the call of duty to provide whatever was necessary to add to our students’ already rich school experience. That experience could not occur without the endless energy, skills and devotion of the Lee Elementary staff. Thanks and well done to an incredible group of professionals.

A final word to our students: Thank you for all your hard work throughout the school year. We are honored to be your principals; you make us proud. We are grateful for your joy, creativeness and amazing talents. Best wishes to our graduating fifth graders, whom we will miss greatly—please come back and visit. Everyone have a safe and happy summer break.

Until next school year, here’s wishing you love, laughter and learning.


Mrs. Poteet & Mrs. Anderton
