Title 1 Meeting
Principal Message

Welcome to Mary Lee Clark Elementary School! A new school year brings new beginnings for all. This is true for our students and for myself as well! It is with great excitement that I begin this year with the students, families, and staff of Mary Lee Clark Elementary. MLCES has a tradition of academic excellence and this year will be no different!  I strongly believe that every teacher, staff member, parent and community member has a role in the success of our community’s children. I invite you to continue working with MLCES to ensure that our children achieve academic success in a safe and orderly environment that allows each child to reach their full potential.


Again, I am honored and excited to be a part of your child’s educational journey and I look forward to a year of new beginnings and opportunities for our students.


Laurie M. Sutton, Ed.S.
