Meet the Principals


On behalf of the students and staff at the Lehighton Area Elementary Center (LAEC), it is my pleasure to extend a warm welcome to you. Each year, we continually work with staff and parents to foster an atmosphere that promotes a learning community characterized by child-centered instruction and decision-making, academic excellence, trust, respect, community involvement, ongoing communication, and recognition of all those associated with the Lehighton area.

It is our goal to work together as a team to move forward to create a nurturing, disciplined, and challenging school environment in which all students can learn at optimum levels and become responsible members of society. We will continue to strive to meet the needs of all students. In our school, we encourage and expect all students and staff to show respectful, responsible, and safe behavior. We are extremely grateful for the opportunity to lead our youngest students and make a difference in their lives.

Our school community is comprised of caring, committed staff, families, and community members to ensure that all of our students have positive learning experiences. The success of all children is at the heart of every decision that we make as we work together as a school team!

The staff at LAEC is committed to ensuring success by providing a positive school and classroom environment in which each student can feel safe, nurtured, and respected.

By providing appropriate and challenging instruction, we are dedicated to reaching every child, each day. We are proud of our students and staff and thankful for our parent and community support. We hope you frequent this website and welcome comments you may have for us. We hope that this site provides you with helpful information, as well as insight, into the many wonderful things occurring here at the elementary center. We are pleased to have you visit us.

Yours in Education,

Mr. Aaron Sebelin, Primary Principal (K - 2) 610-377-7880
