Welcome to East Lawrence Elementary School!

As the proud principal of East Lawrence Elementary School, I have the privilege of witnessing the incredible work our dedicated teachers and staff do each day. Our team at ELES is committed to providing our students with unique learning opportunities that engage and enrich them. Together, we strive to create an environment where students can thrive, grow, and achieve their fullest potential.

To all the parents, thank you for entrusting your students to us! We are excited to collaborate with you and your child every day. We understand the importance of working together with parents and educators to ensure the success of our students. The East Lawrence community has consistently shown a strong commitment to education and high expectations, which drive our relentless pursuit of excellence in education. Our mission is clear: Excellent Learning Every Day.

Our website and Facebook page are both designed to be valuable resources for you as you search for information about our school and as you actively participate in your child's educational journey throughout the year. Please feel free to reach out to me if there is anything I can do to assist you. I am here to support you and your family in any way possible.

I am looking forward to a wonderful year at ELES, filled with exciting learning experiences and meaningful growth for our students. Once again, thank you for visiting our website. Together, let's make this year a remarkable one at East Lawrence Elementary School!
