Welcome to Lake Center Elementary! We are looking forward to having a wonderful school year full of fun and learning.

As an educator and a parent, I know that school must be a warm and inviting place where everyone feels cared for and safe. Lake Center Staff provides those comforts for all our students along with challenging curriculum to meet the needs of all our students. If you have any questions or would like a tour, please feel free to contact me at 323-6300 or [email protected]
