Meet Dr. Lamparske

Welcome to Schumann Elementary! At Schumann, we are dedicated to the district’s mission that “Our students will maximize their potential in life because of their experiences in Orono Schools.”

The Schumann staff takes great pride in our ongoing efforts to meet the academic and social-emotional needs of ALL students. We provide a safe, positive, intellectual learning environment that empowers students to become creative problem solvers, critical thinkers, and motivated learners. In addition, we strongly believe that good character and ethical decision making are critical skills for children to succeed in life. Therefore, we diligently work to strengthen the character of all students and staff through knowing, teaching and living the traits of trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship. We also like to have a lot of fun!

One of the strengths of the Orono School District is strong parent involvement and support. The Schumann Elementary School staff are your partners in seeking the best possible education for your child. We look forward to working with you to ensure that our students have a rewarding and positive educational experience. If you have a question, comment, or concern, please contact our office staff, your child’s teacher, or me without hesitation. We value your insights and welcome your involvement.

You will undoubtedly find that Schumann Elementary has a talented and dedicated staff, a thorough and rigorous curriculum, and a culture of acceptance and success. Thank you for entrusting your children to us!
