Live Oak Elementary School

Growing Hearts and Minds, One Leader at a Time


Welcome to Live Oak Elementary School!
Home of the Falcons 
and a "Leader in Me" School
Vision Statement

The Live Oak team will empower and equip student leaders as passionate and skilled 21st century learners and are committed to closing the achievement gap for all learners, as guided by and outlined in the FUESD Blueprint for Student Success, resulting in increased achievement for all students.

Mission Statement

At Live Oak Elementary we believe that students succeed in an atmosphere where children are engaged, take responsibility for their learning, and respect themselves and others, therefore, a safe learning environment, high standards, and leadership goals are of greatest priority. As a professional learning community, we believe in the worth of every student, and as a result, strive to enable each child to become a self-confident, skilled, and successful citizen, ready to embrace college and career goals.  It is our collective mission and expectation that the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and the philosophies of the Leader in Me, will be developed, modeled, and fully integrated in everything we do at L.O.E. as we move toward achieving Lighthouse status from the Covey organization.

Jeans for Troops fundraiser...student leaders led the way on Veteran's Day!
LOE had 15 parent leaders complete an eight-week parent leader book club. Thanks to our school counselor, Marilyn Thompson and our PTA president, Nicole Weber, the participants read, collaborated, and shared their insights every Tuesday morning in Room B13 on the 7 Habits of Highly Effective Families. Administration participated along the way, and witnessed great growth and empowerment in the graduates. They completed the journey with celebration potluck and certificates... in proper Covey fashion, everyone enjoyed “Sharpening the Saw” and taking a moment to celebrate!!
