Welcome Letter from our Principal

I am honored to join the staff of Lucy Mae McDonald Elementary School as principal.  We are off to a great start for 2018-2019 and our best is yet to come.  This year, our motto is EVERY MOMENT MATTERS.  We selected our motto from a quote of educator Todd Whitaker in which he states that "The best thing about teaching is that it matters.  The hardest thing about teaching is that every moment matters, every day."  We have adapted that quote to reflect our feelings about education.  "The best thing about education is that it matters.  The hardest thing about education is that every moment matters, every day."  Throughout the year, we will be focused on providing the very best education for your child without wasting a single second.  I cannot wait to see what is in store.

I invite you to visit us, join us for lunch, call, email, or facebook us to discover the future that your child is creating and help us shape it.

I look forward to partnering with you in educating the leaders of tomorrow.

Sincerely,

Chris Hawkins
Principal
