Principal's Message

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Leakesville Elementary School where our vision is, “Learners Today, Leaders Tomorrow.”  The teachers and staff join me in saying we are happy to have you as part of our family.

I truly believe L.E.S. is a great place to be, and we are committed to providing our students with a quality education, rigorous curriculum, a safe environment and enrichment/intervention supports.

Our teachers utilize various teaching techniques to meet each student’s style of learning.  We use technology in our classrooms, thus allowing us to approach old ideas in new ways. We encourage our students in order to awaken their curiosity and desire to learn. This strategy has given our students self-confidence and motivation. The results of which are an increase in our student’s foundational skills such as mathematical computations, reading fluency, and comprehension.

We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both home and school.  We look forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children achieve their highest potential. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education.  

In conclusion, If I can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me and know that my door is always open. I can be reached at smhollingsworth@greene.k12.ms.us also. I am honored to serve as your principal.

Sincerely,

Shalonda Hollingsworth
