• Let me be the first to welcome you to Crofton Woods Elementary School! My name is Lori Austin, and I am very excited to be a part of this dedicated staff and group of enthusiastic student learners.  

    Crofton Woods Elementary School is a beautiful school that is tucked inside the community of Crofton, Md.  Crofton Woods is a school with high quality, caring teachers, strong community support, and most of all, wonderful children!  It is a growing school with approximately 740 students.

    Our school motto is Discover, Integrate and Grow and it continues to drive what we do.  We want to ensure that all students feel connected and accepted as part of the Crofton Woods community, that we are integrating the arts with academics to enhance the learning of both, and that we are using the power of discovery to ensure that every student is able to grow.

     As demands of teaching children increase, it becomes more evident that we all need to work together to ensure that our children reach their fullest potential. I believe that all of us- the school and the community- must work together as an extended family to insure success for all our students. It’s our responsibility to empower children with the creative, intellectual, and decision-making skills necessary for them to become academically, socially, physically, and emotionally successful. 


    Please know that my door is always open.  I look forward to building relationships within this community and watching students race towards excellence in all that they do.
