Zoe Leal, Assistant Principal
Welcome back to Lakeside Elementary! As the new Assistant Principal, I am thrilled to welcome you to a new school year filled with endless possibilities. Our vision is “Fostering a growth mindset environment where every scholar achieves their BEST,” embodying the GRIT values: Gumption, Resiliency, Integrity, and Tenacity.
Growth mindset is the foundation of our educational approach, encouraging our scholars to embrace challenges, see effort as the path to mastery, and learn from setbacks. With this mindset, we believe that learning can be achieved through dedication and hard work, empowering all students to reach new heights of success.
Together, as a united community of educators, parents, and students, we will foster a supportive and inclusive learning environment that nurtures not only academic excellence, but also social and emotional growth.
Let us embark on this journey with enthusiasm, courage, and a willingness to grow. I am confident that with GRIT, we will achieve great success and create a bright future for all.
Here's to a fantastic and fulfilling school year ahead, Gator Nation!
