Meet Mrs. Lucas
Welcome you to the 2022-2023 school year! I am Mrs. Julie Lucas and I am very excited to be joining the stellar staff at Fern Drive as your new Principal!
Fern Drive has a wonderful reputation for being a warm and nurturing school community and I am very honored to be joining the Fern family! Building relationships and continuing to grow our school community as a family is one of my top priorities. I believe that our students learn and grow best when they know they have adults that believe in them, connect with them and love and care for them. I greatly value a strong home-school partnership and I will work alongside our staff to continue to help that partnership grow and flourish. If you are new to Fern Drive, you will quickly see that all of our students will have daily opportunities to think critically, create, and explore their interests all while growing as kind, empathetic and productive 21st century citizens. Each student and family brings their own uniqueness to our school community, continuing to enrich the learning environment in which our Falcons will thrive.
I am coming to Fern Drive with fourteen years of experience as an elementary principal. My husband, Matt, and I are parents to our daughter, Abbey, who will be a freshman in high school this fall, and our son, Matthew, who will be in seventh grade. My husband is also an educator, a high school economics teacher, as well as being the head baseball coach at El Dorado HS. As a family we love to spend time on our boat at the river, playing or watching sporting events and hanging out as a family with our dogs.
I am very much looking forward to meeting the students and families of Fern Drive School. Please keep an eye out for more information and communication from me as the first day of school, August 15th, approaches.
Enjoy your last few weeks of summer and I look forward to meeting you all very soon!
