    • Welcome back to another fantastic year at Austin Elementary School!It is an honor to continue to serve the Coppell ISD community as the principal of Austin Elementary! I am thrilled to lead a campus where we are constantly seeking ways to design meaningful learning experience for our learners. We are committed to educating the whole child, focusing on academics and social emotional learning. We have invested many of our summer hours learning more about professional learning communities. If you follow us @AustinElem, you will see dedicated educators continuing to learn in order to meet the needs of our learners.This year our theme is “Continuing the Journey” as we continue building a strong learning community at Austin Elementary.
      Thank you,
      Lorie Squalls
