Principal's Message

Dennis Gonzalez, Principal


Dear Students and Parents,

Welcome to Lawton Chiles Elementary School!

At Lawton Chiles Elementary, our goal is to ensure that each student is provided every opportunity to be successful.  We are very proud of how far we’ve come as a school, and the progress we’ve made to increase student achievement.  This is only possible because of the commitment and dedication of our teachers and staff. 

Additionally, parents play a vital role in the academic achievement of their children.  It is important that you are involved as much as possible in their education.  Something as simple as asking your child how their day was, or helping them complete homework, will contribute to their success. 

Lawton Chiles Elementary is here to serve its students, parents, and the community in every way possible.  It takes all of us working together so that Lawton Chiles Elementary is able to provide an exceptional educational experience for all students.
