Principal's Message

Dear Lee Richmond Families,

As Principal of Lee Richmond Elementary, it is my greatest pleasure to serve you and the children of our community. Our mission is to help every child feel welcomed, safe, and a part of the Panther family. Additionally, we strive to challenge each student to grow in his or her academic abilities in order to be college-bound.

As a school, we discuss the meaning of PRIDE daily and reinforce the importance of being Positive, Respectful, showing Integrity, being Disciplined, and being Exemplary. Not only do we teach this to our students, but as adults, I expect every staff member to be a model of PRIDE. We are committed to children and student safety is of utmost importance.

I am honored to serve as the Principal of Lee Richmond Elementary School. It is truly a privilege to be a part of a community where parents, teachers, and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social growth. Lee Richmond is a safe and loving community that is committed to children.

If our staff can be of any service to you, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at 585-3760.

 

Sincerely,

Mrs. Calvillo
Proud Panther Principal

Home of the Lee Richmond College-bound Panthers!
