Principal's Welcome

Principal Sharon Wells and staff are proud that Lakes Elementary is recognized as a Michigan Blue Ribbon School. We house students in kindergarten through fifth grade. We have 31 professional teachers, including K through fifth grade, art, music, physical education, and a reading specialist. Our Special Services personnel include a school psychologist, social worker, gifted and talented consultant, speech and language therapist, two resource room teachers, two cognitive impaired teachers, occupational and physical therapists, and a district nurse. Our support staff consists of secretaries, custodians, and paraprofessionals who work in our office, library, classrooms, computer lab, lunchroom, and playground.  Our motto is “To learn, to lead, and to serve”, which sums up our commitment to students, parents, and community members.

Lakes Elementary is fully accredited by AdvancED, formerly the North Central Association of Schools and Colleges (NCA,) and the Michigan Accreditation Program. The State of Michigan awards letter grades to all schools through the “Education Yes” program based on test scores and school improvement data. Lakes Elementary has been awarded an “A” the past seven years, and we are proud of our Michigan Education Assessment Program (MEAP) scores as they are consistently above the state average in all subject areas..

We welcome you to Lakes Elementary!
