News from the Principal
Welcome to the 2013-2014 school year.  I am very excited about starting my ninth year as the k-5 elementary principal here at the La Porte City Elementary Building.  I am looking forward to building on the last eight years’ successes.  This will be my twenty-third year in education and my thirteenth year as an elementary principal.  Our goal is to create a positive atmosphere in our building where education is interesting, exciting, challenging, and a fun place for our students.  The safety and learning of our students are our top priorities.  We have an air conditioned building and one of the best elementary buildings in the area.  I feel with our teachers, parents, and students all working together, this will be great year for our children.  We look forward to seeing you and your child at open house and on the first day of school.             
Elementary Theme - Motto

This year’s elementary theme will be “Knowledge Makes You Great and Powerful.” as it also will be our Read-A-Thon theme in February.  The theme comes from the Wizard of Oz film and the benefits of learning.  We want to provide our students with great opportunities to explore, learn, enjoy, and gain as much knowledge as possible each day.  We will emphasize the importance of knowledge and learning, but also having the insight, wisdom, and courage in applying your knowledge to achieve great things.  We will also be emphasizing our LPC Motto, which is: “At La Porte City Elementary we respect ourselves, each other, our work, and our environment.  We act safely and responsibly.  Together we can do our best.”  This motto was designed a few year’s back by our elementary teachers, and the students recite it as part of their morning routine.  The ideas of demonstrating respectful behavior, acting safely and responsible, and doing our best are important concepts that our students need to learn to be able to be successful at school and in the real world to meet tomorrow’s challenges.  By combining our “Knowledge Makes You Great and Powerful” theme and our school motto together we want our students to be kids of character and to experience the magic of learning at La Porte City Elementary.  It will be a great school year.
