A message from the Principal

Dear Lakewood Falls Families, It is my honor and pleasure to welcome you to Lakewood Falls! I am extremely proud to serve as the Principal of this amazing learning community and to support the students, staff, and families of Lakewood Falls!

I would like to welcome all of our families, whether you are currently here, joining us from another school in the district, or have relocated from another city, state, or country. We are excited to share with you all that Lakewood Falls has to offer.

Much like our staff, I believe you will soon feel as we do, that Lakewood Falls is a special place for all children.

Our mission is simple; We are all in for all students. Our educators, support staff, families, and other education partners are ready to welcome you into the PRIDE.

As your principal, my philosophy is simple; it's all about the children. To live this philosophy daily, I have adopted several beliefs;

  • I believe that a principal has to be accessible. Therefore, I maintain an accessible presence for our parents, children, and teachers.

  • I believe that parent involvement is not only important; it is essential to the success of our school.

  • I believe in celebrating diversity. I want everyone to know they are valued as a member of our school community.

  • I believe that our school community is a family. We continually learn and grow together. We are all part of your child’s success.

  • I believe when schools, parents, and children work together, the impossible becomes possible.

  • I am so impressed by all of the work that goes on daily on our campus and I am confident you will be too! At Lakewood Falls, “We are ALL IN for ALL kids!

All the best,

Dr. Scott Winters
