Lead Mine IS because of YOU!


No Left Turns


Please click here to see how you can legally navigate the NO LEFT TURN onto our campus coming up Old Lead Mine Road - without making an illegal u-turn in the middle of Old Lead Mine Road. Although Old Lead Mine Road is not our jurisdiction, these are our kids and families that are impacted. Please know, this is a traffic law on Old Lead Mine Road as well as an expectation on our campus drive. This law and expectation are in place even when there is not a staff member on the corner to monitor. We do not have the human resources available daily to monitor adult driving behaviors on Old Lead Mine Road. Please help us keep our Leopards safe. 


Social Emotional Screener


Families of our 1st & 3rd grade Leopards should have received a letter outlining a new social emotional screener that WCPSS will be administering to students. This school year, only our 1st & 3rd graders will be screened. Next school year, K-5 students will be screened. 1st & 3rd grade families can reach out to their classroom teachers should they have questions.


Middle School Registration


5th grade families should have received a letter this week that outlines the middle school registration process that our 5th graders will engage in very soon! Please reach out to your Leopard's teacher or our school counselors should you have questions related to middle school registration processes. 


Can you help us?


Our classroom, interactive promethean boards have arrived ~ and we now need to disassemble the old, outdated smart boards. The old boards are attached to the walls and are covering up useful, whiteboard space. We are looking for four-six people who are proficient with tools and can help us to take them off the walls. Please reach out to Ms. Harrison,, should you be one of those people who could help us out!
