I would like to welcome you to Lovettsville Elementary
School. I am Dennis Racke, the
principal. I am in my first year of
being the principal here and I am excited about being a part of this community
and working with you and your children. For
the past 5 years, I was the Assistant Principal at Creighton’s Corner
Elementary school in Brambleton. I have
experience teaching in grades 2-6 and I started my career in Florida before
moving to Loudoun county and teaching 5th grade at Horizon
Elementary in the Cascades/Sterling area.
Our mission at Lovettsville is simple: we want to build leaders who have a voice to
make a difference in the world. We are
looking forward to a wonderful year filled with hard work and learning. This year’s focus on building leaders starts
with forming good habits. It starts with
good work habits and building a strong foundation of learning. We are going to focus on improving our math
and reading scores from last year and continue to build on the success we’ve
had. At Lovettsville, we will help students
to strive for excellence in everything they do, have high expectations, and to
give their best every day. We expect
students to respect and support one another.
We also expect to be equal partners with parents in their children’s
learning. A theme for this year is to
that everything we do will be a matter of pride. I want students, staff, and parents to be
proud of the great things we do here at LES.
As we move through the year together, please reach out to me
if I can help and know that together we will make this a fantastic year. I look forward and am excited to work with
you just as our teachers are looking forward to working and learning together
with your children.
Here’s to a wonderful year!
