Erica BammesI am excited to begin my first year as principal of the school. As the assistant principal the previous two years, I am proud to be a Lee Longhorn with strong connections to our Lee students, staff, parents, and stakeholders!

Lee Elementary School was built in 1953 and has experienced two major renovations. USD 383 recently passed a bond, which means there will be some changes in our school and district over the next few years. To learn more about the bond, please visit the 2018 Bond Referendum page. Lee is a K-6 building with approximately 515 students. Our school is a Blue Ribbon Award Winner. Additionally, we are a title school, which means that we have access to federal funding to help support our students.

Lee School has many opportunities that are unique to our school. Students have an opportunity to participate in Boys and Girls Club, Jump Rope Club, Art Club, Newspaper Club, After-School Choir, Green Team, and many other activities. While academics continue to be our focus, we know that a student’s social/emotional well-being is as important. We take time to recognize students for good character through High-5’s as well as character assemblies. Please encourage your child to display the character traits and follow the Lee Longhorn expectations at all times! Furthermore, we hope you will encourage your students to participate in the extracurricular activities available to Lee students. It is our goal to have an inviting school with open communication, so please feel free to contact us to ensure your child is thriving academically and socially.

Parents also have opportunities to participate in Lee PTO (Parent Teacher Organization), Site Council, and to volunteer in classrooms and in and around the school. Every parent of a student at Lee Elementary is a member of the Lee PTO. Meetings are held monthly on Tuesday at 6:00 p.m. The first meeting is August 20, 2019. Also, we are looking for Lee Site Council members for the 2019-2020 school year. Please contact me to become a member of Site Council. Thank you for considering becoming more involved at Lee Elementary.

Again, welcome to Lee Elementary! Please like our USD 383: Lee Elementary Facebook page, the Lee PTO Facebook page, and visit the website frequently to have the most updated information. We are excited for the school year and look forward to working with you to make it the best year ever. Please contact us with any questions!

Educationally Yours,
Mrs. Erica Bammes
