Mrs. Laura Bryant, Principal

Dear Families,

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year. We could not be more excited to begin another year with students! The staff at Old Fort Elementary is top-notch! Their dedication and passion for kids has impressed me since the day I walked into Old Fort.

Although new to the district, I am not new to education. I come with 20 years of experience, both as a teacher and an administrator. Previously, I have worked in the Bellevue and Fremont School Districts. I am extremely overjoyed to be your elementary principal and look forward to all the great things we will do this year for kids! I appreciate the warm welcome I have received from staff, students, families and the community! It makes my heart happy to be a Stockader!

This year we are Launching a new program called The Leader in Me. This school-wide model, based on Steven Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, increases self-confidence and refines 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.

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
