Welcome toLithiaSpringsElementary School. You will find a family atmosphere at LSES with a kind and dedicated staff that shares a commitment to provide a quality educational opportunity for your child. It is our desire at LSES for you to have a successful school year. Our mission is to teach responsibility in an environment of respect and dignity. We believe that we have the best students, and that they deserve the best teachers.

 

We are very pleased with the academic accomplishments of our students. In the upcoming year, we will continue to focus on improving the math and reading instruction that our students receive. We will also continue to advance our writing instruction using formative assessments to help focus student learning.

 

We have an open door policy at LSES. It is our desire that our school be an integral part of the community. Parents are welcome to volunteer in classrooms and encouraged to be active in the education of their child(ren). Parents are a child’s first teachers and are vital to helping them reach their fullest potential. At LSES, our mission is to teach responsibility in an environment of respect and dignity.

 

We also encourage you to become a mentor. There are so many negative influencers today to which our students are exposed. Becoming a mentor allows our parents and community members an opportunity to have a positive influence on our students. For those interested in becoming a mentor for one of our students, please contact the school counselor.

 

We are also thrilled to be in our second year of implementation of APTT (Academic Parent Teacher Teams).  We began the program last year in kindergarten and first grade.  This year, we will be expanding to second grade.  Over the course of the year, we will have three evening meetings when parents will be invited into the classroom to discover how their children are performing on basic skills.  We will provide each parent with activities that they will be able to take home and utilize with their child.  We will also have one day scheduled for one on one conferences for each parent.  We are only one of two school in the Douglas County School System implementing this outstanding program. 

 

We look forward to working with you toward the continued success of our students.
