• Dear Students and Families:  

              Welcome to Lake Panasoffkee Elementary School. It takes a strong relationship between school staff, community members, parents and students to be a high performing school year after year. It also takes a strong emphasis on high academic and behavior expectations.

              This year our motto is: Better Together at LPES. We will use this theme in activities to motivate students to try their best and reach their full potential. We believe that the possibilities are endless when we all work together as a team.  As you visit our campus and classrooms, you will see the pride our students and faculty have in a clean, safe, and well-maintained facility.  Our students have a reputation for being respectful and well behaved.  You and your child can expect the same respect when dealing with all of our staff.

              As a concerned parent, you can be assured that your child will receive a quality education.  We have a highly trained staff with a true passion for educating children.  To be successful, we will need a team effort between the home and the school.  Open communication will ensure that all possible learning strategies are utilized to help your child succeed. Please stay involved in school news using Skyward, our school webpage, Facebook, and Remind.

              Our English/Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies and Science programs will be the focus of your child’s success.  Please encourage your child to read, and reward their efforts whenever possible.  Reading at home is one of the key components in the success of a child. 

              We encourage you to visit your child’s classroom, volunteer, and become active in your child’s education. Our time is short, and our job is important.  Thank you for your continued support and cooperation.  Working together, we will achieve great results!


    Better Together!
