Our Mission

  • The mission of the Iowa City Community School District is to ensure all students will become responsible, independent learners capable of making informed decisions in a democratic society as well as in the dynamic global community; this is accomplished by challenging each student with a rigorous and creative curriculum taught by a diverse, professional, caring staff and enriched through the resources and the efforts of families and the entire community.  

    The mission of Helen Lemme Elementary School, through its dedicated staff and families, is to provide a challenging, progressive, child-centered educational program in a safe learning environment.  Students will experience social, emotional and academic success which will empower them to become responsible, independent learners who show care and respect towards others. 

    It's great to be a Lemme Leopard!
