Principal's Message

  • Denise Dopico-Lizano

    Greetings, Fan-Cactus LFE Family,

    Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year at Lake Forest Elementary School! We made some great strides this past school year as we navigated through new curricular programs, new protocols, and new state assessments. Our teachers, staff and students rose to the occasion and worked hard to maintain and in some cases go beyond expectations! I am proud of each and every one of you!

    As we move into this new school year, and we add some new initiatives, programs and protocols, our teachers and staff will continue to build their own learning and continue to help each learner grow and learn. After all, our mission is to provide a stimulating and challenging learning environment that meets the needs of all students and enables them to reach their maximum potential. We are committed to meet the needs of our scholars and to communicating with you every step of the way to ensure a continued path towards excellence in partnership with parents and community.

    Aside from continuing to strive towards excellence, my goals this year include continuing to build and grow strong relationships with staff, scholars, parents, and the community. I look forward to your participation in PTA, SAC/SAF, community events, and schoolwide activities so that we can not only get to know each other but also provide support to our students and strengthen the relationships that will help our children continue on the path to success.

    Once of the best ways to know what is going on in our school and how you can help your child is to stay in touch with us! Make sure we have the most current phone number, email, and home address, join any communication forums your child’s teacher may use, listen to phone messages, and read emails from our Parent Link, like our Facebook page, Instagram, and X (formerly Twitter) accounts, and check our website regularly. We look forward to serving you this new school year and demonstrating all that Lake Forest Elementary has to offer.

    We are cultivating SHARP learners at LFE! Watch Us Thrive!

    Your Proud Principal,

    Mrs. Denise Lizano
