Dear Lemira Elementary Parents/Guardians and Students,

I want to officially WELCOME all of you to the 2019-2020 School Year! For those of you who are new to our school, I want you to know that you are coming to an absolutely wonderful place where we “motivate, inspire, and educate our students to be college and career ready.” Lemira is a school staffed with energetic, caring and qualified adults who encourage and support all of our students. We are ready to start a great year of adventures in learning!

I have enjoyed meeting with many of you and look forward to our continued partnership in ensuring a productive and fun educational experience for your child(ren).  I believe that building strong relationships between home and school is a key factor in increasing student achievement. As principal, my door is always open and I welcome your input. I strongly believe that parental involvement is an essential component to student success, as research continues to show strong correlation between increased involvement and high student success.

 

Rising PK and Kindergarten

We will offer our Kindergarten Kamp again this year on August 6th from 10am-11am for all PK and Kindergarten students. This camp will be a special informational orientation.

Uniform Policy

We are continuing to enforce our uniform policy for the 2019-2020 school year. Your child will be expected to wear his/her uniform daily beginning August 20th. Parents will be contacted and asked to bring replacement clothes for students out of uniform.

August 20th is the first day of school for grades K-5. This is a full day, and breakfast and lunch will be served.  The first day for PK students is August 26th. School breakfast and lunch continues to be free for all students.Please call me at (803) 775-0658 or email me at vanessa.canty@sumterschools.net when questions arise.
