Administration » Principal


It is an honor and privilege to be 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. That dream has finally become a reality with the opening of this amazing, state of the art campus.


Each day our students will enter a safe and positive learning community 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.


For the past decade, I have energetically served the families and students of Sheldon ISD as a campus administrator and I look forward to the next chapter where my lifelong love for learning in the arts will have a home.


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,
