"Reclaiming the Castle"

Dear Lanier Families:


“When educating the minds of our youth, we must not forget to educate their hearts.”

-     Dalai Lama


It is a great pleasure to welcome you to the 2016-2017 school year! I hope that the summer months have provided you with an opportunity to rejuvenate as we look forward to a great school year. Our school theme again this year is “Reclaiming the Castle”. This theme represents the positive energy from our faculty and staff as we prepare to invigorate our perception in this community by reclaiming Lanier from the stereotypes and the realities that do not reflect what it means to be a Poet. In order to accomplish this theme, we need support, cooperation, and dedication from all of our faculty and staff members, parents, students, and stakeholders. Lanier will be a school that you will be able to take pride in!
