Administrative Message

  • Greetings Parents/Community Members,

    Welcome back Shark/Diver students, parents, and community members to the 2023-2024 school year! Summer always tends to fly by, but I could not be more excited to be back in the school building. I am Dana Felderman the Superintendent, Elementary Principal, and Transportation Director in the Lake Preston School. Please feel free to give me a call with any questions or concerns that you may have. If you are visiting the school, please use the west entrance (Door #1) during school hours as we use this as our main entrance.

    If you want to know what is going on all throughout the Lake Preston School District, you are just a click away. We are connected! We have a great Facebook Page! Search for Lake Preston School District 38-3 as our page is updated daily. Our school website is: . Our site is organized in a way to inform everyone about our school activities and events. Our goal was to make this a user-friendly website that you could bookmark for future reference.

    Make sure your information is updated on our Infinite Campus Messenger platform. ICM is an updated program that works through our current DDN Campus, your Parent Portal. To improve communication between parents and school we utilize a telephone/text/email broadcast system that will enable school personnel to notify all households and parents/students by phone/text/e-mail within minutes of an emergency or unplanned event.  This service may also be used from time to time to communicate general announcements or reminders.  Please check your voice mail for your message before you call the school.

    We have many new opportunities and new improvements within the Lake Preston School this year. With the ongoing project of our east street and sidewalks project, the street is still closed therefore there is no parking on the east side of the school until this project is completed. We will also be installing a safety fence in the playground area to limit students from dangerous construction areas. We are excited for the many changes that have occurred over the Summer and look forward to educating your children.

    Understand that I have high expectations for myself, and I will have high expectations of the students, staff, and parents throughout the year. I will be speaking to your children within the first couple of days of school about the expectations that the school has of them. Please talk to your children about their day and ask them what they learn here at school. Parent involvement is crucial to a child’s success and promotes learning.

    America’s greatest invention is the start of public education, and we will do our best to accommodate all of the children that call our school district their home.

    We have a school full of great kids, teachers, and faculty and I am looking forward to having a great year!

    Mr. Dana Felderman
    PreK-5 Principal
