Message from Principal

Welcome CUBS!

The 2018-2019 school year will be one of growing, learning and gaining new experiences. This year we will focus on our new PBIS motto and mascot, the C.U.B.S. – Careful, Understanding, Brave and Safe. The LP Vaughn Pre-K & Kindergarten Learning Center will strive to develop the whole child- academically, socially and emotionally. Our dedicated teachers and staff strive to develop strong character in our students while providing a rigorous academic program.

We look forward to an exciting school year. It is our goal to involve parents as key members of our educational team. Teamwork, of course, means good communication between home and school. Check your child’s agenda daily and please contact us whenever you have a question or concern. We sincerely hope this year is enjoyable and a time for real growth. Best wishes for a successful 2018-2019 school year.

L.P. Vaughn’s mission is to work with the parents and community in developing the skills and character necessary for student success academically and socially in an ever changing world.

School Philosophy

We, the faculty and staff of L.P. Vaughn, believe the purpose of this institution of learning is to provide an environment in which all children can develop to their potential. We believe that each child has different aptitudes and attitudes and that the staff is responsible to provide for these individual differences. Our goal is to make it possible for each child to meet the challenges in a rapidly changing society.
