Hello Elm Lawn Family,

“The role of the principal is to help establish challenging goals and ‘safe environments’ for teachers to critique, question, and support other teachers to reach (these) goals together.”  

I feel fortunate to serve as your principal at Elm Lawn Elementary School. Please feel free to contact me at or 829-9071, and when you see me at the bus landing or in the hallways, please introduce yourself.


Bob Schell

Principal Elm Lawn Elementary School
