"Lipscomb is a family. We care for and support each other. Parents are welcome at Lipscomb as they partner with us to make our school a great success. I love living and working in the Lipscomb community, as there are wonderful people here who work hard and care very much about our school. Lipscomb is a special place with the best students, parents and staff." - LES Principal Michelle Contich
"Everyone is so kind. Teachers are nice and help us learn. I like my friends and my teachers." - LES student Ruby Ann Krauthamer
Oak View Elementary
"Oak View is a warm and welcoming school. The students and staff are a pleasure to work with. I have been here 17 years and can say that I enjoy coming to school every day." - OVES teacher Laura Bailey
"I like the friends that you make along the way. I have some good friends here." - OVES student Jay Parker
Lipscomb Elementary students are learning a new skill in PE class.
For the past three weeks, LES students have been learning how to skate. Wearing their helmets and wrist guards makes students feel like the gym has turned into a real skating rink.
"We learned how to skate really well in PE class," said LES students Elie Taylor and Jack Tomlinson. "Now we're lifelong roller skaters."
Fifth-grade students at Oak View Elementary are dancing to the beat of their own drums in Billy Prosise's music class.
With drumsticks in hand, students tapped out the beat on bucket drums during class. To make it more interesting, Prosise gave his students boomwhackers to create different notes.
"Music class is so much fun because we get to do a ton of different activities," OVES student Harper Buerger said. "Mr. Prosise is also a lot of fun."
