Dear Lake Placid Families,

Here at Lake Placid Elementary we feel honored to be a pivotal start in your students’ education.  We recognize that fostering the love of learning and joy of knowledge is an essential start to a life of education both in school and out.  Together as a community we strive to provide the best for your child.

At Lake Placid we will continue to rise to the challenges of new standards, increased teacher accountability and a greater emphasis on ensuring that our students are college and career ready. Our programs are designed to give our students the advantages of a much larger district while maintaining the small school setting that we know and love here in Lake Placid.

Along with a strong academic program, we are extremely proud of the strong extra-curricular tradition at Lake Placid. Our students work hard in the classroom and on the stage, field, community and art room.  This success fuels the success in the classroom and vice versa.  Focusing on character throughout the year will round out a complete school experience that every student will be an important part of. 

Please continue to visit the school website and your child’s classroom webpage as we update information throughout the year.  I am looking forward to the coming year at Lake Placid and I have high expectations for our students and staff and I am thankful for the dedication and leadership they show when presented with new challenges. Please don’t hesitate to contact me at 523-3640 or e-mail me with any questions or concerns throughout the school year.
