Mrs. Lawson


  • Principal


    Greetings Fairmount Park Elementary Families,

    It is truly an honor to be the newly appointed Principal of Fairmount Park Elementary School. I look forward to a phenomenal year getting to know the scholars and families of this wonderful community. A very familiar African proverb states It takes a whole village to raise a child. Our community is one that is dedicated to the belief that everyone can achieve to their highest potential and we have many initiatives at FPES that focus on this belief. My desire is to build upon these initiatives and continue the great work. 

    I come to you with twenty years of educational experience within Pinellas County Schools serving as Classroom Instructor, Assistant Principal and Principal. I am a product of Pinellas County Schools. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from The Florida State University and a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from the University of South Florida. For the past five years, I’ve served as the Principal of Maximo Elementary School.

    Please know that I am committed to working together with each family to make even greater strides in the upcoming school year. I look forward to getting to know you and building positive relationships with you and your children.


    Educationally yours,

    LaKisha F. Lawson
