Principal's Message

Hello Lawton Chiles Elementary School families!

We had an outstanding turnout at our Meet the Teacher event last Thursday.  Hundreds of you came out to see our school, meet your teacher, and kick off the school year!  While the dress rehearsal went well, the main event is on Wednesday when we officially start the 2022-2023 school year.  A few things to remember:

- Students are admitted on campus at 8:15.  The first bell rings at 8:35 followed by the late bell at 8:45.  Parents are welcome to escort their child to their teacher on the first day of school. Kindergarten parents are then invited to our Tears & Cheers Breakfast beginning at 8:45 in the Media Center.
- Because the first day of school is a Wednesday, dismissal will be at 2:00 pm.  
- Please click the following links to access the Lawton Chiles Elementary Family Guide in English and Spanish. In this guide, you will find useful information and answers to frequently asked questions.
- We will have a school store this year!  To help raise money for the merchandise that will be in the store, we are selling t-shirts. Use this link to purchase a LCE t-shirt and support the opening of our school store:

I know I can speak for the rest of our staff when I say we are incredibly excited to start the school year.  In the words of Plato, “The beginning is the most important part of the work.”  I am looking forward to a strong beginning in which our Lawton families, community members, and faculty work together to make this year a perfect one for you and your children. Thank you for reading.
