Principal's Message

Lawton Chiles ES Community Member,

We are finally to the point of the year when I feel comfortable saying we’re in the homestretch! State testing is over and our 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students did a wonderful job staying focused and putting forth their best effort; I am so proud of them! The final 8 days of school will bring a lot of excitement as we wrap up the school year, including a few special ceremonies commemorating a successful year for our students.

On Friday May 20th, our Kindergarteners will celebrate their promotion to 1st grade with an awards ceremony and party beginning at 9:00 am. Additional details about the Kindergarten celebration were sent out by your child’s teacher. Remember that parents are welcome to attend the awards ceremony but the ensuing party is for students and teachers only.

On Monday May 23rd, we will have our Grade Level Awards for 1st through 4th grades according to the following schedule:

1st Grade Awards: 9:00 - 10:00
2nd Grade Awards: 10:30 - 11:30
3rd Grade Awards: 12:00 - 1:00
4th Grade Awards: 1:30 - 2:30

All of the Grade Level Awards Ceremonies will be held in the cafeteria. Please note that space is limited and we are requesting that no more than two family members attend per student.

Our 5th Grade Celebration will be held at University High School at 10:30 am on Tuesday, May 24th. Please join us as we celebrate this amazing group of 5th graders and send them off to middle school. Families are welcome to sign their 5th grader out after the awards ceremony to go celebrate with their child outside of school.

Finally, as we move into the summer, I also want to make everyone aware of a new opportunity we are offering this year. During the month of June, we will be offering our first ever Lawton Chiles Elementary Summer Camp. The camp will run Monday through Thursday the entire month of June. For only $80 a week (including breakfast and lunch), students will be engaged in fun and creative activities that will enrich their summer and help bridge their learning from this year to next.  Please call for more information.

Thank you for reading.
