Welcome to Leon Elementary! It is truly a great time to be a Leon Cougar! We are working hard at making Leon the best school possible. We have a lot of great students and a wonderful group of teachers. This year our theme at Leon Elementary is GRIT. Grit is defined as “firmness of mind and spirit, unyielding courage in face of hardship or danger.” We will show our GRIT through hard work, dedication and stick-with-it-ness. We are talking to our students about putting forth their best effort, even when things get tough. You do not have to be SMART to have GRIT; you just have to have determination, perseverance and never, never give up attitude. We want our students and our families to know that one’s success in life is not solely based on talent or ability, but on one’s willingness to try and work through challenges and obstacles. That is how you become stronger!
I am expecting a wonderful year at Leon Elementary! Our goal remains the same: to create a nurturing and loving environment where your child will feel safe and be able to learn to the best of his/her ability!
