Mrs. Charlotte Smith - Principal

 Welcome to Lisenby Primary School! I am pleased to be the principal of the first primary school in the Ozark City School System. I was formerly the principal of Thompkins Early Childhood Center, the all kindergarten school in Ozark for 9 years. I have been with the Ozark City School System for 30 years, most of which were spent at Thompkins. All of my degrees are in early childhood education as well as my National Board Certification. I also serve as the system's elementary curriculum coordinator. Because of the closing of the kindergarten site, the system created a primary school for Pre-K through 2nd grade at Lisenby. Staff members from three schools were combined to create the current Lisenby staff. Our goal as the staff of Lisenby Primary School is to provide our students and parents with a learning environment that is both welcoming and educationally sound. We take pride in being a "Bucket-filling" School and students and staff are frequently recognized for their bucketfilling acts of kindness. The staff came together for the first time at a summer retreat and developed our new mission and vision for Lisenby. We used the acronym for Lisenby Primary School- LPS- to create our mission:

L= Learning and Leading
P= Positively Progressing
S= Successfully Soaring

We hope you will visit our website often to see all of the wonderful things that are taking place at Lisenby.
