Principal’s Message: 

Greetings Johnston-Hopkins Family,

It is with great excitement that I write this letter to introduce myself as
the principal of Johnston-Hopkins Elementary School. I am truly
honored to serve in this role and look forward to continuing my
educational journey here, in this capacity. I can assure you that I am
committed to working diligently for the betterment of teachers, students,
staff, and the community. Working together, we will continue to provide
students with an enriching school experience.

I have dedicated fourteen years of service to the Iberia
Parish School District, by way of Hopkins Street Elementary and
Johnston-Hopkins Elementary. My experience has allowed me to 
educate the little minds of Kindergarteners, serve as an NIET mentor,                                                                                                            School-wide Behavior Master Teacher, Crisis Team Leader, DA Gatekeeper,                                                                                                            3-6 Math and Science NIET Master Teacher, PBIS Team Leader and Assistant Principal.

This principalship will provide the chance to work collaboratively with all
stakeholders, while remaining connected to our students’ learning and
growing in the classroom. As an educator, I believe wholeheartedly that
every child deserves a quality and equitable education. I believe that
every child can excel. The partnership between home and school
builds confidence in students to use their knowledge and skills to shape
their future and the future of our community and our nation.
So let’s band together to ensure that your child is educated in a safe
and orderly environment. If throughout the course of this year you have

any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me at                                                                                                   or 337-369-9687. Together, we will succeed!


Wishing everyone a productive and enjoyable school year,

Ashley Lewis, Principal
