School mission statement

Our mission at W.O. Lance Elementary School is to foster lifelong learning, enhancing character development within each child as we prepare him or her for the future. Together teachers, parents, and the community can accomplish this in a nurturing and positive environment in which each child is a valued individual with unique physical, social, emotional, and intellectual needs.

Preparing Lanett Students to Live, Learn. Lead.

The W.O. lance Library Media Program seeks to create a 21st Century Environment that promotes learning for all students by providing equitable access to information, teaching information literacy skills, and encouraging lifelong learning. The library media center strives to be a center of collaborative learning that produces creative students who have an appreciation of literature, critical thinking skills, and a respect for others and self.

This mission of the W.O. Lance Library is to provide students with the opportunity to become not only lifelong users of information, but also creators of information. The library will support the curriculum by collaborating with teachers, developing a collection that is representative of the community, and implementing literacy instruction for students.
