It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2017–2018 school year. I hope you had an opportunity to spend quality time with family and friends during a rare summer that included many rainy evenings and a total eclipse of the sun. 

No doubt we will collectively face challenges as we continue to support academic and behavioral excellence during a time of diminishing resources in our state. Your voice and the voice of our community will be critical as we go through recalibration of our school funding model.

Our overall district goal statement is, “Students will achieve academic success, graduate from high school prepared for post-secondary education, be career ready and be responsible citizens.” District school action plans will be developed around student achievement, professional expectations and growth, instructional leadership, safe and orderly environment and effective and efficient use of resources. Your input and assistance in making this an achievable reality is greatly appreciated.

I look forward to a successful school year and thank you for all you do!


The mission of LCSD1, in cooperation with students, parents, staff, and the community is to guarantee a high quality education in a safe and orderly environment for all students, inspiring them to become life-long learners and responsible, productive citizens.
