Principal's Message



Dear Lilac Lizards,


          Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! ¡Bienvenidos a el año escolar 2017-2018! We are very excited preparing for the opening of school on our first day of school – Thursday, August 24, 2017. This is going to be an amazing year at Lilac! We are committed to providing the best education possible to our students. As we embark upon this new school year, the staff and I are eager to help your children develop the skills necessary to be successful students and world citizens. We continue to implement best practices to foster a safe and inclusive learning environment for every child. I ask for your support and participation by sending your child to school every day, encouraging your child to read for pleasure daily, communicate with your child’s teacher, monitor homework/progress, and asking them to share what they learned each day at school.  Your child will be much more successful if you are actively involved in their education. Teachers, staff, volunteers and your support will make this an amazing school year for every Lilac Lizard!
