Dear Colleagues,


It is with great enthusiasm that I welcome you to the 2018-19 school year.  Many of you continued to serve our students during summer camp.  Special thanks to Mr. Bernard McDaniel and each employee who contributed to our highly successful summer camp.  We are also grateful to Mrs. Pamela Wessinger and our wonderful transportation team for ensuring that our students arrived and returned home safely each day.  Some of you attended college classes and professional learning sessions during this past summer.  However, I’m sure you were able to find some time to relax and enjoy family and friends.


To our new employees, welcome to Lee County School District, ‘A Learning Community Where Students Come First’.  We look forward to the contributions you will make toward creating success for our students.


We bid farewell to the graduating class of Lee Central High School who truly distinguished themselves by being well prepared for the next steps in life.  The 2018 graduating class earned a total of $6,035,980.00 in scholarships!  I am so proud of our students for reaching their academic goals and their displaying of stallion pride that defines our school community.


We have impressive highlights from the 2017-18 school year that I plan to share with you at our opening.  It is always good to reflect, to look back at the work we have all accomplished.  We know that there are no limits to what we can do.


Special thanks to our Board of Trustees for their timeless efforts, long hours and commitment to our students.  We have an exciting day of professional development listed in the schedule for our Board to help us begin a new school year.


Attached is a copy of our schedule for the opening week.  I look forward to your return.  Please know that I appreciate you and the work that you will do on behalf of our students.


Warmest regards,



Wanda Andrews, Ed.D.
