Meet the Principal

Marcus-Kwabena Johnson
First I would like to thank the community, school board, and superintendent of Coahoma County School District for entrusting me with the honor of
serving as principal of Lyon Elementary School. Any and every decision I make, action I take, is conducted with one central thought in mind...what is
best for the children of Lyon Elementary. Eighteen combined years of instructional and administrative experience have revealed to me that learning is fluid, and that children are more inclined to become model citizens when receiving an education that is holistic in nature. With that in mind, we make every effort to explore social and emotional learning and creative expression; alongside academic rigor, in order to develop innovative young minds that are ready to tackle the world.
Simply put, Lyon Elementary WILL be a safe and nurturing environment that takes into account and addresses the specific development needs of all children. Into every student that enters the doors of LES we will speak confidence, love, and achievement. It is my sincere goal to produce students that become the agents of change that will one day lead our society. I invite you all to partake in this magnificent journey of growth and development. 

Welcome to Lyon Elementary...where Bobcats roar!!!
