The students, teachers, and administrators in Loudon County Schools are an amazing example of commitment to excellence as they focus on individualized student achievement. I am humbled and honored to work with such a dedicated group of professionals as well as to be a small part of the daily operation of a powerful vision that impacts the lives of every student in our county. Loudon County Pride is alive and well as we strive to instill a desire for greatness in each and every student we teach.
I am really excited about this upcoming school year. This summer, our teachers, instructional coaches, and administrators have been working diligently to prepare for amazing opportunities for our students. I’m proud of their dedication to our students and community and know we are setting the stage for our students to be successful in college and career opportunities. This is going to be a great year!
I’m sure you have noticed our new school construction. Students at Highland Park Elementary Loudon High School will begin school with new facilities that will have classrooms that are educationally conducive to learning. HPES will also have a new music program this year and update cafeteria facilities. We are really excited for our students and teacher at HPES. At LHS we will have new classrooms, band room, art room, and a state of the art culinary arts facility. Eaton Elementary School and Loudon Elementary School will have new playground equipment this school year as well. It is our hope that it will be in place by the end of August. The board of education is also in the process of developing a long range strategic plan that includes renovation for several of our school spaces. We are excited about being able to use our adequate facilities funds to support this vision.
Again, we are really excited about this school year. We have worked hard to ensure our kids will be successful in college and career opportunities. If we can help you with anything in regard to enhancing your child’s educational opportunities, please don’t hesitate to contact us here at the office or at your child’s school.
