    Dear Lenox Staff and Community,

    It is with mixed emotions that I write this letter to let you know that I will be leaving Lenox Elementary at the end of this school year. Lenox is a truly wonderful place to work and learn, and I am forever grateful to have been a part of this community. It will always hold a special place in my heart.

    I have been appointed to a new position as the principal of Butternut Creek Elementary School starting July 1, 2021. While I am excited about this new venture, I will miss being a part of this team and working with all the wonderful students, staff, and families at Lenox. Lenox students are amazing and I know they will continue to be in good hands, being supported and guided by an excellent staff and passionate families.

    The District will be posting this job on Friday, May 7, in order to find a high quality candidate to lead our school in the future. Please watch for an email from Human Resources requesting input and feedback from staff and families on Monday, May 10.   

    I truly appreciate everyone who has worked hard to ensure that all Lenox Pioneers reach their highest academic and social potential during my five years here as principal. It has been an honor to work alongside you and I know you will continue to accomplish great things.

    Estimados miembros del personal escolar y comunidad de Lenox:

    Es con emociones encontradas que escribo esta carta para informarles que me iré de la primaria Lenox al final de este año escolar. Lenox es un lugar verdaderamente maravilloso para trabajar y aprender, y siempre estaré agradecida de haber sido parte de esta comunidad. Lenox siempre tendrá un lugar especial en mi corazón.

    He sido nombrada como directora de la Escuela Primaria Butternut Creek a partir del 1 de julio de 2021. Aunque estoy entusiasmada con esta nueva oportunidad, extrañaré ser parte de este equipo y trabajar con todos los maravillosos estudiantes, el personal escolar y las familias en Lenox. Los estudiantes de Lenox son increíbles y sé que continuarán en buenas manos, siendo apoyados y guiados por un excelente personal escolar y familias apasionadas.

    El Distrito publicará este puesto de trabajo el viernes, 7 de mayo, con el fin de encontrar un candidato altamente calificado para dirigir nuestra escuela en el futuro. Por favor, esperen recibir un correo electrónico de parte del Departamento de Recursos Humanos el lunes, 10 de mayo, solicitando comentarios y retroalimentación por parte del personal y las familias. 

    Aprecio con sinceridad a todos los que han trabajado arduamente para asegurar que todos los pioneros de Lenox alcancen su mayor potencial académico y social durante mis cinco años aquí como directora. Ha sido un honor trabajar con ustedes y sé que continuarán logrando grandes cosas.

Principal's Message

  • Gina McLain Dear Lenox Families,

    It is with great pride and excitement that I am Principal of Lenox Elementary School. I am excited to bring my skills as an educational leader to your son’s/daughter’s school and to collaborate with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success.

    Along with staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established at Lenox by building strong relationships with parents, students, staff, and community partners.  We will focus on providing a positive and safe school culture and climate through our Positive Behavior Intervention Support program, and consistent and engaging implementation of standards-based teaching and learning to increase students’ growth and achievement. 

    The diverse student population at Lenox Elementary School provides everyone with an awareness and appreciation for all cultures. The Lenox staff are passionate, dedicated educators who set high standards of achievement so our young scholars can be successful. We are determined to drive rigorous engagement in literacy, writing, math, and science, and provide individualized opportunities for student growth. To ensure this happens, we collaborate regularly around student learning, challenge one another, and seek continuous improvement in teaching and learning. We set high expectations for ourselves and our young scholars, and work together in the process of achieving those expectations.

    Thank you for trusting us with the education and caring development of your child. If you have questions or concerns that arise at any time, please do not hesitate to give your child’s teacher or me a call. Family support is a critical link to student achievement. We want to hear from you!

    In partnership,

    Gina McLain
