Lamkin Elementary traces its history back to 1884 when a small one-room schoolhouse, known as Big Cypress Schoolhouse, No. 2, Dist. 6, was built. As the years passed and the elementary and high school students were provided separate facilities, the elementary was renamed Lamkin in honor of Mr. and Mrs. G.A. Lamkin, Jr. Prior to his appointment in 1947 as Superintendent of the District, Mr. Lamkin served nine years as principal of Fairbanks Elementary.


All parents and staff are welcome to join our awesome Lamkin PTO. The PTO meets monthly on Monday mornings. Our active PTO organizes volunteers, sponsors various student events, and conducts fund-raisers. The profits from our fundraisers provide monies for cultural arts activities, field trips, technology, landscaping, books, and playground equipment.
