Dear J.L Lomax Elementary Families,


My name is Dr. Tret Witherspoon, and I am excited to introduce myself as your new principal of J.L Lomax Elementary. I am honored to have been selected to lead your school. I have served as a principal for many years, but more importantly, I consider myself to be an advocate for our students. Over the next few months, I plan to spend time getting to know our students and their parents.


The 2019-2020 school year promises to be one filled with golden opportunities for all of our students as we strive to find ways to improve on the greatness already established!  We embark on this journey with a pledge to you, our students and parents, that this will be a year of engaging, meaningful and rigorous work in our classrooms. We will continue to build upon and refine our proven foundation of good work, honored traditions, and continued excellence in education.  


Our staff of highly qualified professional educators and support personnel is committed to providing our students many opportunities both inside and outside of the classroom. We invite and encourage students and parents to work in partnership with us to seize opportunities in all facets of our J.L Lomax programs.


As we look forward to a very positive and productive year, we extend a special, yearlong invitation to our families to join us at school activities and events whenever possible.  We want and value your involvement and support in your child’s education! Your active participation is key to the success of your child during his/her elementary school years.


Please know that we highly value home/school communication here at J.L Lomax Elementary.  It is vital and plays an integral role in each student’s success. We encourage you to contact us if/when the need arises, and to stay in the know about your child’s studies, assignments, assessments, and school activities, as well as other events and happenings.


Again, as the new principal, I welcome you to the J.L Lomax Elementary family and to our wonderful learning community.  Our school is a place alive with much energy, enthusiasm, and a high standard of excellence! It is, indeed, a place where opportunities abound!  Here’s to an AWESOME new school year as we work together to make our school a great place to work and learn each day!




Dr. Witherspoon, Principal
