Principal's Message

  • Greetings Eagle Family,

    My name is LaShundra A. Wilson and I am so excited to serve you all as the PRINCIPAL of Degan Elementary! The love that I have for this school, our brilliant scholars, our amazing staff, and our incredible community is unmatched. When I think of the reasons that I fell in love with Degan when I was the assistant principal here 4 years ago, I can’t help but to feel such gratitude to be back! Our mantra for our Degan alumni has always been, “Once an Eagle, Always an Eagle”, so I am so glad to be back in the Eagles' Nest!

    As I begin my 18th year in education, there is no place I’d rather be than Degan! As your campus principal, it is my vision to make sure that Degan is a place where every scholar, staff member, parent, and community member feels that they belong. My mission is that Degan Elementary will be a place where scholars are well loved, deeply valued, and highly educated. I am committed to be with you all every step of the way on this journey and to continue to learn and grow as I pour my heart and soul into the scholars and staff at Degan. 

    As the lead learner at Degan, my commitment is to keep our scholars at the forefront of every decision that is made. I will continue to learn and grow, to walk alongside each of you at whatever phase of this journey you’re on, to work with and for our scholars and staff, and to create a space for our scholars to thrive. I will give my very best each and every day!

    I welcome you to come with us on this journey! I welcome you to volunteer, join PTA, and get involved in all of the amazing things that will happen this year! Remember- at Destination Degan “You belong here!”

    With Eagle Pride,

    LaShundra A. Wilson
