Administration » Principal


It is an honor to serve as the founding principal of Sheldon Lake Elementary, our district’s newest elementary campus and a Performing and Visual Arts integration school. For years, I have dreamed of working in a school that harnesses the power of the arts to help students not only make deep connections in their learning, but also begin to tell THEIR story in a way that THEY truly enjoy.


For over a decade, I have energetically served the families and students of Sheldon ISD as a campus administrator and I look forward to the challenges we will face as we welcome our students back to school.  Our team of amazing educators are ready to meet the needs of each of our Eagles. 


We want our students to enter a safe and positive learning community each day, where we encourage them to take risks in their learning, to step out of their comfort zone, and demonstrate their knowledge in a variety of ways through not only our amazing music, visual art, theater and movement/dance studios, but also in our equally rigorous core curriculum classrooms.


I welcome you to this new school year for all of our new Eagles and their families. Together we will be Soaring through the Arts and Soaring to Success!


Christopher Dickson,
