Principal's Memo

Greetings parents/significant caregivers, community members, teachers, and students! I am so pleased to welcome you to our new website! 

I am Lydia C. Jones Fields, wife of loving and supportive LaVaughn Fields Jr.  I am also the granddaughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Lytt Jones Sr. (Ruther Mae “Doll”), life-long residents of Karnack, Texas. Correspondingly, my father and all seven of his siblings are successful products of Karnack I.S.D. schools.  I am an honor graduate of Marshall High School, summa cum laude graduate of Wiley College, and graduate of Texas Southern University. As an educator of nearly 15 years, I have gained a wealth of knowledge from Houston ISD, Marshall ISD, and Longview ISD, and I am using all of my experiences to foster growth in each student in Karnack.  

I love the students, teachers, and staff at George Washington Carver Elementary and sincerely hope to continue the rich legacy of the Karnack Indians.  George Washington Carver Elementary School is a distinction campus this year for Postsecondary Readiness and Top 25% Closing Performance Gaps! This is a result of continuous dedication from our staff, families, and community. My primary goal is simple:  student achievement.

 There are a few points I would like for each parent to focus on so that we as a team can make this year the best one yet for our children:

1.  Read to your child daily, even if only for a few minutes.

2.  Encourage them to get a good night’s rest each school night.

3.  Use your child’s folders as a way of communicating with your child’s teacher. Emails and Remind.com are also encouraged.

4.  If there are any significant changes in the home, please communicate them with your child’s teacher and/or the administration staff. 

 My doors are open to talk to each and every one of you, about anything. Please contact the school at 903-679-3111 to schedule an appointment time.
