    I am the grandparent of a graduating 4th grade student at Lely and get to visit only a couple times a year. I know my granddaughter has really thrived at this school and I can see why when I get to visit her classrooms on her birthday and sometimes for a parent conference. The teachers have all been wonderful! They have so fostered her love of school and learning. She even got to perform in a school production. While in the third grade, she wrote a book! The staff goes beyond the typical school day to enhance students experiences. I think there is a great hint to the organization and caring of all staff when waiting in the student pick-up line at the end of the day! Such a fantastic system coordinated by so many for the safety of the students. It is like a perfect symphony of safety and caring for all. It is a dream to see how the staff is so protective of its students and how each student s safety and well-being matters to the staff. Oh, and p.s., I am a retired teacher of many years, so I really respect all that Lely has to offer the students and the caring that is exhibited from the administration to each and every staff member. Great job you Lely people!

    I am one of dozens of retiree volunteers at Lely Elementary School. The administration, the teaching staff, and the office staff have been wonderful in coordinating volunteers and matching us with classroom needs. Recent increases in student population may limit volunteer access because of space needs but this school is exemplary in what it attempts to accomplish with its students and their families.

    My kids have gone to Lely for 5 years. The teachers are wonderful and the staff have made us feel at home. The Lion Dens, where the same two teachers are with the kids for two school years foster a sense of security and also help kids thrive. I enjoy the diversity of kids and staff. The former principal Ms. Stewart was excellent and she brought the school up to it s current A Level.

    Lely is a 'special place' that not only fosters a great education, but great positive moral among students and staff.

    I have been a teacher at Lely for 3 years. Each year I have had an opportunity to go do a different school. But this school has a vibe of teamwork and passion for education that I would not replace for anything. We have gone from a 'D' school to an 'A' school in 3 years and believe that Lely deserves this recognition for the hard work and dedication given everyday!
