“Reclaiming the Castle, one brick at a time”
Greetings Sidney Lanier School Community,
I enthusiastically greet you as the newly appointed principal of Lanier High School—a school with a rich history of learning. It is my fervent hope that the summer months provided each of you the opportunity to relax and recharge after encumbering life during the COVID-19 pandemic. As we embark upon the 2021-2022 academic school year, rest assured that the castle is situated on a firm foundation that welcomes all our students back to the fold.
This year, as we continue to traverse through life in a post-COVID-19 world, please know that “We Are One” and that we all are in this together. We will continue the rebranding initiative with the theme: “Reclaiming the Castle, one brick at a time.” The brink symbolizing areas of concerns that we will tackle and conquer as a team.
Throughout the year, we will be adding robust enhancements to our academic framework to ensure that our students are equipped with the necessary skills needed to be contributing and productive members of our everchanging global society. In addition, we will be creating social activities for the entire student body based on the Morehouse College’s 5 Well Model. It is my goal for each Lanier Poet to be “Well Read, Well-Traveled, Well Balanced, and Well Spoken, and Well Dressed”.
It is my distinct pleasure to welcome our new faculty and staff members to the Sidney Lanier High School community. Each professional brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to our school and we are glad to have them as a part of our staff. All of our new staff members are committed to assisting in our collective efforts to meet the academic and social needs of our Poet Scholars.
All local and district mandated rules and regulations will be followed accordingly. It is the collective charge of the entire LHS administrative team, teachers and staff members to ensure that the LHS learning environment is safe, healthy, inviting, and conducive for the individual success of each LHS Poet.
I am looking forward to meeting everyone in the near future, we are going to have a fantastic year of learning and growing Together. Sidney Lanier High School is the emerging Apex of Learning for the Montgomery County Public School System. GO POETS!!!!!
With warm regards I remain,
Joseph Jermaine Roberson
