WELCOME TO LEXINGTON ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
Dear Parents, and Students,
As I start my first year at Lexington Elementary, I am eager and deeply committed to providing a world-class education and making a difference in the lives of our students. As a staff, we will accomplish this by setting high standards for our students and instilling within them a growth mindset so that they can become the best version of themselves. I truly believe that no matter the circumstances, we can achieve the goals that represent our mission and vision.
I am a Chicago native, who has fallen in love with the city of St. Louis! I started my teaching career in Illinois and taught there for numerous years. In 2016, my family and I moved to St. Louis, where I started teaching middle school at Carr Lane VPA. From there, I went to teach and become an administrator at neighboring charter schools. I am happy to be back home in the district that gave me my start when I moved to St. Louis.
I know that I have the necessary traits and components to propel Lexington into a successful future. My goal is to assist each student in becoming their best selves. I have a relentless passion for the students of Lexington Elementary, and I know that this will help me motivate our staff and students to reach their highest potential.
If you have any questions please feel free to email me: Courtney.Jude@slps.org. I look forward to working with you this school year!
Mr. Courtney Jude
