A Message from Mrs. Fockler, Principal

August 28, 2020

Dear Lewistown Families,

Together, we are making educational history today! A new and unprecedented journey awaits us! While we know school will look different, the possibilities for our students are endless! We may have little bumps in the road as we get started, but we are committed that all students will be successful in their educational journey! We will learn, excel, succeed and challenge ourselves in this new virtual environment.

The staff at Lewistown Elementary School has been preparing tirelessly to ensure that your child has the tools they need to begin a successful year. While virtual, we will continue to focus on our mission of building relationships with students. While reimagining every aspect of our school environment is challenging work, we're ready for it!

Together in heart and mind,

Mrs. Fockler,
