Welcome to Lawtell Elementary School’s web site.  We hope this site provides you with the information that you are looking for whether you are just browsing or you are trying to learn more about our school.


Lawtell Elementary values a longstanding tradition of excellence.  At the core of that tradition is a caring and committed teaching staff that provides many opportunities for student learning and success.  It continues to be our challenge to make learning as meaningful as possible to the 21st century student.  Our goal is to ensure that all of our diverse student population is challenged to reach its fullest potential by offering a rigorous academic environment coupled with any support that may be essential for their success.


We also feel strongly that getting students involved in something beyond the regular school day is integral to student success.  One of the benefits of being such a large elementary/middle school is the number of opportunities we can offer for students to get involved.  Our student clubs and organizations, band and athletic teams offer students the chance to be a part of something positive and rewarding. 


The LAWES family, comprised of teachers, administrators and support staff, welcome you to participate in your child’s education.   The success of our students in both academics and extracurricular activities is remarkable, but it will only reach its fullest potential when we all work together.  Please join us in making your child’s educational journey a meaningful and rewarding one.
