Dear Students,

Welcome to Lee County Elementary School! We are proud that you are part of our school family! Our school serves children in Lee County's East Zone in grades, three, four, and five. We have the absolute best faculty and staff around! They work hard to ensure that our students are set up for success and that they grow and develop into LEEders who LEAD by example.

I have been privileged to be part of the LCES family for the last 20 years. I began in 2004, where I taught third grade for 14 years. I spent four years as Assistant Principal and am currently in my second year as Principal.

Fun Fact: I went to Lee County Elementary School too!

If I can assist you in any way throughout the year, please let me know. I can be reached by email at

Your principal,
Candice Smith
