Principal Nichole Heidemann

Welcome to John F. Lawson Elementary School! Located in the Johnston Community School District, we serve more than 600 students in grades kindergarten through fifth, as well as the developmental kindergarten program. We are committed to supporting students and families academically, socially and emotionally.

More than 160 years ago John F. Lawson donated the land for the first one room schoolhouse in this area. Today the Lawson Elementary staff continues that dedication to education. We work to ensure that all students learn at high levels. We promote an atmosphere of personal growth, high expectations and pride for students and staff in our Lawson and Johnston community.

I am excited and proud to serve as principal of Lawson Elementary and look forward to meeting you! For additional information or questions, please contact me directly. Follow us on Twitter for current news and updates: @JCSD_LAE

We welcome visitors and love to talk about Lawson and the Johnston Community schools. Please call our office at (515) 278-0478 with any questions or to arrange a visit.
