An Update from Principal Mrs. Baez

Educating our future leaders is a partnership; when educators and families form a partnership through communication, our students will succeed.  I want to encourage you to continue inspiring your child to do their very best on their school assignments, assessments and homework. Building strong foundational skills in both reading and math is the stepping stone to academic success that will support your child as they continue their education in middle and high school.

The following will help your child have a successful school year:

  1. Regularly view and discuss with your child their academic progress using Skyward. You may create your login directly from the website.
  2. Students working at home via the [email protected] program should have a quiet area with a hard surface to set up their digital device and all their resources.
  3. Ensure your child has a regular homework routine after school.
  4. Communicate regularly with your child’s teacher via ClassDojo, email or telephone.
  5. Partner with the school staff via the School Advisory Committee and Parent-Teacher Association.
  6. Stay informed and receive up-to-date information via the school website at, find and like us on Facebook at Lawton Chiles Elementary [email protected] and follow us on Twitter at Lawton Chiles Elementary [email protected]_OCPS

Your teacher and I are always available to answer your questions and discuss your child’s needs. We may be reached via email or telephone.
