Lew Wallace Elementary Website Launched

The APS Web Team is thrilled to announce that the new Lew Wallace Elementary School website is now live!

Lew Wallace is the fourth school to be migrated into the new district-wide school website system, School Loop. Learn more about this project

Looking at the site now, it’s hard to believe that Lew Wallace didn’t have a website at all just a few weeks ago. Principal Gloria Brooks and part-time Technology Coordinator Sammie Hutchison did a fantastic job on their new site, creating a useful, informational resource for their community.

The new site has so many exciting features:

  • A search bar at the top of every page
  • School news and events prominently displayed on the school homepage, where they’re easy for families to find
  • A great Parent section, with links to the PTA, homework help, and parent-teacher conference materials
  • Automatic district news and events feeds, so that parents can go one place to get the latest information from both their school and the district
  • Instant translation of each and every page by clicking on the Translation link at the bottom of the page
  • Perhaps most importantly, the ability for school staff to update and improve the site using intuitive, web-based tools

Congratulations and thanks to Ms. Brooks and Sammie! We couldn’t have created the new site without their guidance, enthusiasm, and webmaster skills.
