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!
