THE LANE ELEMENTARY

Community Consolidated School District 181



A Message from Principal Todd:

I am excited to begin my sixth year as Principal at The Lane School. That makes it the school district I have worked at the longest of my career. Our tremendous students are a huge reason I originally sought a position in District 181. That combined with the collaboration with staff and parents is a large part of why I continue to be passionate about this position today.

The Lane School mission remains rooted in our student-created Lane School D.I.G.N.I.T.Y. pledge: Today I will show Lane School D.I.G.N.I.T.Y. by:

Doing my best and working and working hard
Inspiring others
Giving my best effort
Never giving up
Including others and
Treating everyone with respect and kindness, but most of all...
You must work hard and have a great day!

Your partner in education,

Mr. Brandon Todd
The Lane School Principal
