Meeting Expectations are Key!


As the principal at Lake in the Hills Elementary School, I wanted to share with you the expectations that exist for parents, students, staff and myself.  Lake in the Hills Elementary has a strong and proud past of helping students learn.  There are a many reasons why we are a great school and I’m confident we will continue to improve in the future.  One responsibility we all share to give every child the best opportunity to feel safe and learn.  Below are a list of expectations for the children at our school, and just as important, a list of expectations for us, the adults.    

While the expectations listed below help to contribute to our overall success, they are not the sole factors. I believe in order to have a high quality, successful school there must also be a sense of order, love and respect. Each of us only gets one attempt at making a child’s educational experience the best it can be. Please join me, along with the faculty and staff of LITH, to help make this school year the best it can be for all of our children.
