    Principal's Message


    Dear Panthers,

    Forest Lake Elementary is a caring community of students, parents, teachers, and support staff.  It is an honor for me to have the privilege and responsibility of being the principal of this great school.  I am proud of the wonderful things already happening at Forest Lake, and look forward to many exciting possibilities for our future!

    Forest Lake Elementary is a wonderful school in so many ways.  We have great students who are eager to learn; a dedicated, highly skilled and caring faculty & staff; and families who work hard every day to support their children's education.  My primary goal is to ensure we all work together as a team to continue that success, constantly striving to find new ways to help every single student reach his or her full potential.  To focus our work, I have adopted the three guiding principles that our Superintendent of Schools, Mr. Russell, has set forth for the entire district:

    Guiding Principle #1: Dedication to increased student achievement.

    Guiding Principle #2: Commitment to finding solutions to problems.

    Guiding Principle #3: Mutual respect and positive relationships with all stakeholders.

    At Forest Lake Elementary School, you will see many examples of each of these guiding principles in action.  Each member of the Forest Lake community has an important role to play.  I believe in encouraging everyone to participate and use their talents for the benefit of our students.  Please join me as we write the next chapter of Forest Lake Elementary School's history together.
