Welcome back to another exciting school year. This year our building theme is Color the World with Kindness. Our goal this year is that our students learn how to be kind to others. This school year we will be using a new behavior program called PAX. This is a positive behavior support system that encourages students to make good choices thought-out the day. 

I want to take this opportunity to emphasize to students how much our faculty and staff look forward to your return and how much we care about your success and well-being. Our focus is not only on what you learn in class, but also about what type of person you are. Our goals go beyond teaching specific academic content. We want students to be responsible, show initiative, be creative, set and meet goals, understand and relate to various cultures and backgrounds, be able to resolve conflicts and problems, be able to think critically and learn from mistakes, and be contributing citizens to the world. To foster this development, we will continue our efforts to build and maintain a collaborative environment distinguished by mutual respect. Of course, we will be ever-mindful that character does count.

I would like to thank our parents and guardians for their continued support. Together we can create the kind of safe, nurturing environment that will enable our students to reach their full potential. Throughout the year, there will be multiple opportunities to participate in school programs and activities and engage in meaningful dialogue about your child’s individual experience. We look forward to partnering with you in the educational process and encourage you to stay connected over the coming weeks and months. 

I am honored to be the Principal of New Lexington Elementary School and look forward to serving the students, staff, parents, and community.  We are here to Care, Share and Learn Every Day.

If you need to contact me please do not hesitate to call or email me. (740) 342-2556, [email protected]

Best wishes for a wonderful school year!

Mr. Grant
