Principal’s Message

Dear Lake Forest East Elementary School Community,

I am honored to introduce myself as the new principal of Lake Forest East Elementary, and I am thrilled to join this vibrant and caring school community. My name is Jeffrey Sheehan, and while I am a veteran principal, this marks my first year here at Lake Forest East. I am excited to embark on this journey with all of you, our dedicated staff, enthusiastic students, and supportive parents and guardians.

 At Lake Forest East Elementary, we prioritize two fundamental pillars: student safety and literacy. Ensuring the safety and well-being of our students is of utmost importance to me. Every child should come to school knowing that they are in a secure and nurturing environment where they can learn and grow to their fullest potential. Together, we will continue to implement and refine safety protocols to provide a safe haven for our students.

 Literacy is the key that unlocks a world of knowledge and opportunities. As we all know, the ability to read and comprehend is fundamental to a child's educational journey. I am committed to maintaining the strength of our literacy programs and initiatives, working closely with our dedicated educators to ensure that every student not only learns to read but develops a lifelong love for reading.

 Our school's success is a collaborative effort, and I encourage open communication and partnership between our staff, parents, and students. Together, we can create an environment that fosters academic excellence, personal growth, and a sense of community.

 I look forward to meeting each and every one of you, and I am excited to witness the incredible achievements and growth of our students this year. Let us embark on this educational adventure together, knowing that by working hand in hand, we can provide the best possible educational experience for our students.

 Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions, ideas, or concerns. My door is always open, and I value your input.

 Thank you for entrusting us with your child's education. Here's to a fantastic school year filled with learning, growth, and shared success.

Warm regards,

Jeffrey Sheehan
