Mrs. Laura Bryant, Principal

Dear Families,

Welcome back to another exciting school year. The staff at Old Fort Elementary is top-notch! Their dedication and passion for kids is unmatched, and we are blessed to have each of our 325 students here with us! We also welcome several new staff members to our family as well, and I am confident each will be an asset to our building.

This year we are in Year 2 of Leader in Me, a school-wide model, based on Steven Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Our goal is to increase students’ self-confidence and help them refine their personal leadership skills, preparing the way for students to thrive in the 21st century. Our goal at Old Fort Elementary is to develop a solid, intrinsic foundation of positive life principles that will enable students to lead themselves and others well. We aim to provide opportunities for students to discover their strengths & talents, use their creativity, take initiative, set and meet goals, resolve conflict, work well with others and become responsible leaders in all aspects of their lives.

I’d like to invite you to be involved in our school by connecting with PTO. Meetings are held the second Tuesday of the month at 6:30 p.m. in our Library. We’d love to have you join us!

Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can ever be of assistance. I can be reached daily at the school between 7:30 a.m - 4:00 p.m. or anytime by email at lbryant@oldfortschools.org

I look forward to developing a great relationship with your family over the years!

With Children at Heart,

Mrs. Laura F. Bryant
