Superintendent's Message

Dear LLCSD Community,

On behalf of the Board of Education, our staff and myself, I want to welcome everyone to the 2018-2019 school year. As I begin my second year as your Superintendent, I am again honored to have the opportunity to serve you and your families. Over the summer break, we have all been hard at work preparing for your children’s return to campus. From professional development workshops to improving our facilities across the district, we used the summer months to prepare for a successful 2018-2019 school year. School should be a magical, enriching place for children. It is my commitment to you that we will work every day to give your child the opportunities, resources, and facilities they need to be successful learners and well-rounded individuals. Again, welcome back to the new school year. We look forward to another successful year. Thank you for your continued support of the Little Lake City School District. We take great pride in having the privilege of educating your children.
