Dear Lewisville Elementary Families:
Thank you for visiting the Lewisville Elementary School webpage. As principal of Lewisville Elementary School, I want to welcome you to our school. I feel privileged to have the opportunity to work with highly qualified and dedicated staff, the wonderful students, and the supportive parents. We are ready for the start of a fantastic new 2013-2014 school year!
I am thrilled at the opportunity to get to know all of you and engage in the educational process together. The elementary years are critical times of development for students and families alike, and I look forward to working with all of you to make this year successful. I am a lifelong educator who brings a firm commitment to students and families as well as a love of learning and problem solving.
Our staff is committed to working with students and their families as a team. Our rigorous curriculum is directly aligned to the South Carolina Common Core Standards. To help each child achieve to his/her fullest potential, the school provides both enrichment and intervention supports for students. We believe in knowing each child by “name and need.”
Lewisville Elementary is in the first year of implementing the Coordinated Approach to Child Health (C.A.T.C.H.) program. This program will encourage healthy eating habits as well as promoting physical activity inside and outside of the classroom. Be on watch for the many exciting things that will happen with this program.
Research shows that parental involvement in a child’s education benefits the child. These benefits are higher levels of academic achievement, positive attitudes, and greater maturity and responsibility. These benefits are so solid; I urge you to take part as much as possible in the life of our school. It does take an entire village to raise a child. Your assistance as a volunteer would be extremely valuable to our students. Consider becoming an approved school volunteer. There are many areas where your help would be appreciated.
Again, we welcome all our families back to another exciting, challenging year. Always contact your child’s teacher first with any concerns you may have. As the instructional leader of your child’s school, I am responsible for all decisions made in the best interest of your children. I look forward to a great year and to meeting all our new children and their families.
Wanda F. Frederick
