Principal's Message


Lydiksen Elementary School continues its commitment to high academic expectations and a strong character education program. We provide a quality learning environment for student achievement and balancing academic success with individual personal growth for our students. Our goal is to provide a caring community, ripe with a knowledgeable staff, parent support and ongoing partnerships with parents and the community to ensure the success of every student. The Lydiksen staff works diligently to produce comprehensive, challenging and balanced curriculum based on district standards to ensure that students meet or exceed grade level standards and expectations. Our school fosters student learning in a safe, nurturing environment that promotes positive character development and self-respect. In conjunction with the district's Strategic Plan and Shared Vision, we teach, reinforce, model and practice positive social and ethical behaviors daily.


Lydiksen's Single Plan for Student Achievement emphasizes the continuation of improving reading comprehension and literacy skills, increasing mathematical concepts, instilling personal responsibility and empowering students to be the best that they can be. The Lydiksen staff continues to assess each student regularly to assist in developing teaching strategies that address student needs to assure that all students have the best opportunity to learn and grow, socially, emotionally, and academically. Our parent community is invaluable. High academic expectations, parent involvement and school-to-home communication creates a powerful partnership. School volunteers, successful fund raising, special projects, program evaluation and strong leadership from staff and parents enhances the wide variety of school activities we enjoy at Lydiksen. Lydiksen exemplifies community effort committed to excellence and continues to be a place where, "Kids Come First."
