Robert Sorenson, Principal of Lewis & Clark Elementary



Welcome to the 2019-20 school year at Lewis and Clark Elementary, Home of the Eagles!

I am honored to join the Lewis and Clark community in my first year as the Principal.  I have worked in the Richland School District for 16 years and am proud to be a part of such an amazing school with dedicated, caring, professional staff, energetic students with eager minds, and a supportive community.    

I am committed to serving the students, staff and community of Lewis and Clark.  I believe that it “takes a village” to help our students prosper and welcome open communication and ongoing partnership with our families.  Please don’t hesitate to get involved or simply reach out with questions or concerns.  While I am always happy to help, I encourage you to start with your child’s teacher with questions or concerns so you can build a partnership with him/her to support your student. 

The Lewis and Clark staff hold high expectations for students both academically and behaviorally and work together to help every student achieve success.  Staff continually challenge each other and students to improve and grow, believing in a culture of continual learning for everyone.

I am excited for a new year and to be a part of the learning that occurs every day.  I look forward to celebrating all the success we see from our students throughout the year.  I appreciate the support and confidence you place in our staff and believe together we are going to make this a great year at Lewis and Clark. 

Go Eagles!   

Robert Sorensen, Principal
