It is an honor and privilege to be a part of the LaSalle Community for the 2018/2019 school year. As the new principal of LaSalle Elementary, let me be the first to share with you how the teachers and I are excited to continue the path to increase student achievement. Your children are in excellent hands and our goal is to maintain high expectations and promote academic excellence for all students with set forth state standards. We have the top teachers, students, and leadership team to get the job done. To support our commitment to academic excellence, all students participate in physical education, art, music, library, guidance, and computer lab. The Gifted Program is grades Pre-K through 5th. Families are strongly encouraged to become involved in the school. Attending events such as Open House, Math and Literacy Nights, and PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) meetings are all important ways to learn about what is going on at school. There are innumerable opportunities to volunteer, such as: field trips, school fundraisers, PTO (Cats Club), and VIPS (Volunteers in Public Schools). We appreciate our community partners –Starmount/ UNUM, Manship Theatre, Istrouma Baptist Church, and Grace Life Fellowship. LaSalle Elementary also offers Kids' Orchestra and engaging before and after school care programs. We continually promote and celebrate positive student behavior through PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports).
I also want to assure you that the students’ performance data will drive all changes that need to happen for your child’s growth. I am a firm believer that it takes a village to raise a child and LaSalle’s doors are always open. I extend my hand to your partnership in helping to support our students here at LaSalle.
Thank you for your continued support and cooperation in helping make our school such a successful, collaborative place where our children are always striving to achieve. We are committed to strengthening the collaboration between our school and families of each student.
