I am so proud to be the new Interim Principal at Lichen K-8. Lichen K-8 provides an environment where educating all children for the 21st Century is a top priority. Students participate in a standards based curriculum where they work together to build a strong community. Students learn to think critically, cooperate, and develop into insightful, creative, compassionate, and wise citizens who can thrive in the world. Technology is an important eductional tool integrating language arts, mathematics, social studies, and science. Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (STEAM) enhance the development of the whole child. Lichen K-8 unites students, parents and teachers through strong social and emotional connections to academic growth and life-long learning.
