Excellence for Every Child
Dr Amy Brace: Principal
For the first time since the State of Tennessee has developed a new accountability system, Knox County Schools have been identified as an "Ememplary" district. Knox County is the first "urban" county to be so identified. The academic achievements that we have seen at Lonsdale Elementary played a key role in Knox County gaining Exemplary status. You can be proud of the staff at your school for the strides being made in the classrooms of Lonsdale.
Our Safety Patrol for this school year has been picked! This year prospective Safeties were asked to submit an essay on why they wanted to be a Safety. From those entries this year's Patrol was selected. Our Safeties are held to high standards academically as well as behaviorally.
Lonsdale Elementary is excited about its partnership with the Boys and Girls Club of the Tennessee Valley. BGC offers after school programming to our students including:
