MESSAGE FROM PRINCIPAL
Kimberly Gordon

KGordon125x148

Welcome to Lynne Thigpen Elementary School, a professional learning community where Passion, Pride and Persistence guide everything we do! Our mission is that we are DRIVEN TO SUCCEED by Empowering Minds, Character and Relationships.

This year, we will move from being a school of choice to being THE school of choice.

Our goal is to empower our students with the knowledge and skills necessary to become fully functioning members of society. We believe that our actions have the power to make a difference in the future of the children and families we serve. Every child at Lynne Thigpen Elementary School is considered precious and treated as we would treat our own. Children leave our school with a solid foundation that will equip them to reach their dreams.

Lynne Thigpen Elementary School’s Shared Vision provides the blueprint of what we hope to become. The staff is committed to providing an exemplary elementary education program that ensures all students attain the knowledge and skills necessary to (1) enter junior high school ready to succeed and (2) meet college and career readiness expectations by the end of high school. This vision document provides the “imagination” of what we hope to become, a blueprint for continuous improvement and the benchmarks by which we will evaluate our progress. We dedicate ourselves to these ideals.

In order to move the vision forward, we believe that we must hold ourselves accountable to the highest standards of professional practice. Toward that end, the staff of Lynne Thigpen Elementary School has established a set of rigorous Collective Commitments that reflect our perseverance and integrity in the pursuit of excellence in education.
