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 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.
